STRONG, SENSITIVE TYPE
Old-school strongmen have nothing on our A1 Premium Aluminum frame. But the Pitch Sport is in touch with its feelings too, offering a ride that's as comfortable as it is durable, thanks to a lightweight proprietary alloy and Sport Trail 27.5 Geometry for sure handling.
It's not enough to offer quality suspension like the coil-sprung SR SunTour XCT 30 fork on the Pitch Sport. We also custom-design travel based on frame size to keep the geometry and ride quality consistent over all sizes. Lockout limits annoying bobbing on smooth terrain.
SWEET SPOT WHEELS
Why 27.5-inch wheels exactly, not 27 or 28? It's a happy medium which offers most of the benefits of the older 26-inch size, like light weight and agility, with those of the newer, oversize 29er version, like fast-rolling efficiency and easy roll over obstacles.
The 16-speed Shimano drivetrain gives you the right gear, anytime.
A long-lasting, rust-resistant KMC chain offers quiet, sure shifting.
Grippy Ground Control Sport tires feature Flak Jacket flat protection.
