Men's Pitch Sport 27.5

2018 Men's Pitch Sport 27.5

We know that picking a mountain bike can be a bit of daunting process, with all of the options and technology floating around out there and everything. But while some suspension platforms and tech pass like fads in the wind, hardtails have stuck around since the advent of the mountain bike. That's why we built our Pitch Sport 27.5 around an aluminum hardtail design. The design allows the rear end to stay planted while you're pedaling, so it has plenty to offer in the way of efficiency on climbs and on the flats. And with our acclaimed Sport Trail 27.5 Geometry and ample suspension up front, you're guaranteed to feel confident and ready to rip when the trail tips downwards. It's everything you need to get there and get riding.

Such a goudd bike

I have nothing else to say, but this is such a good bike. The build quality is the best in its price range, and no shortcuts were made in the design of this bike. Taking this on a black diamond jump trail didn't leave a scratch and everything held up. A year and a half of riding put no issues on the bike and neither for myself.

Nice bike for the price

I'm in between a novice and knowing a bit and this bike has performed well enough to get me out on some more technical trails without fear of breakdowns. The only real complaint I have is the shifting is a little rough, especially when you change gears often to stay in that sweet spot and the head seems a bit steep.manualing on this bike is tricky

It's great bro

I have used it on the trails and off it works great. Although on the fork it says not to be used on trails it works great don't worry about that

Awesome Bike

I was looking for a quality bike that wasnt going to burn a hole in my wallet as well as something that wasnt going to break on my second or third ride. I came accross this bike (mainly because of the bright green) and was instantly hooked. I bought it and I could not be any happier with it, especially for someone like myself thats just getting into the scene. I have a blast on this bike every time I go for a ride, even when I take my trash to the dumpster haha. You can ride just about anything and even get some desent jumps in without worrying if it will hold up. If your looking for a bike that can basically do it all at a decent price, this is the one.

The best beginner bike at this price

I've been looking for a good starter bike for a long time. Looking through other brands they skimped on parts, and quality wasn't a part of the equation with others. This bike skimps on nothing. The fork is very high quality and the mechanical parts work as they should. For a little over $100 you could get the hydraulic brakes, but those are harder to take care of, but stop faster. Bottom line, this is the best hardtail at this price. Pro or beginner.
