As its “All Mountain” description implies, the Pitch is ready to tackle everything from XC trails to technical downhill runs. Out-of-the box with gobs of FSR suspension and quality specs, the Pitch allows you to get your fill of exhilaration without having to empty your wallet.
WHAT 150mm of tunable travel, featuring
FSR rear suspension and custom
WHY Balanced travel front and rear that kills
the descents, but can still pedal efficiently
back to the top of the mountain.
HOW FSR technology includes strategic
pivot points that decouple suspension
from drivetrain and braking forces to
eliminate bob and squat, which creates
a fully active, fully independent system.
The custom RockShox forks, tuned
specifically for Specialized, are stiff and
strong, but offer buttery-smooth travel,
with external lockout and rebound adjust.
Direct Mount Front
Derailleur & Chain Guide
WHAT Front derailleur mounted directly onto
chainstays and built to mate with a twospeed
WHY Assures the quickest, most accurate
shifting in the bumpiest conditions and
keeps chain tight and secure in any ring.
HOW Derailleur mounts directly to the chainstay,
so it rotates with the FSR linkage (standard
derailleurs are often mounted to seatstay,
remaining static) to maintain the optimal
angle between chain and derailleur, even
with the hardest compression. The chain
guide applies gentle pressure on the chain
in any gear, preventing it from jumping
off the rings and protecting it from rocks
Specialized Hi Lo Hubs w/
WHAT Hubs with high/low flanges, 20mm thruaxle,
and 32-spoke rims.
WHY Provides a stiffer, quicker handling, and
more durable front end and wheelset.
HOW Our Hi Lo hubs have a higher flange on
the braking side to increase stiffness and
strength under heavier braking loads,
and the 32-spoke design adds to these
benefits by spreading the load over a
greater number of spokes. The 20mm front
thru-axle is much stronger and more rigid
than traditional QR systems, which adds
durability and makes steering quicker and
