That spot where the bike path turns from concrete to dirt? The Pitch Sport is made to explore beyond, with a sturdy aluminum frame, smooth-riding front suspension, grippy tires for loose surfaces, and sure-stopping hydraulic disc brakes to keep you under control.

The heart of the Pitch Sport is the Sport Trail 27.5 Geometry, which features a roomy cockpit to keep your center of gravity securely between the wheels for control, and a slacker head angle designed for more stable steering.

The key to mountain biking is confidence, which starts with knowing you’re in control. Thanks to the Shimano hydraulic disc brakes on the Pitch Sport, you’ll always know you have plenty of stopping power, no matter the trail conditions.

We obsess about tires a little. OK, a lot; it’s where the bike meets the trail, after all. So for the Pitch line, we chose our wide, 2.3-inch Ground Control Sport, with a versatile, fast-rolling knobby tread that offers superb grip and traction for any trail.
