Overview
Technical Specifications
Reviews
The Pitch is prepared for singletrack trails and urban jungles, with a plush, 100mm-travel SR Suntour fork, powerful Tektro disc brakes, and Stout 650b alloy wheels.
  • Specialized Body Geometry mountain saddle is tuned for trail performance
  • Stout aluminum 650b rims are trail ready
  • Specialized Fast Trak Sport 2.0" tires w/ a race-proven tread
  • Shimano Altus 8-speed rear derailleur for shifting precision
  • Tektro Aries, mechanical disc brakes for reliable stopping power
  • The custom color—Rocket Red—is designed to naturally age over time. It will exhibit splashes of a dark rich color when exposed to prolonged direct sunlight. This finish is deliberate and therefore not covered under the traditional warranty policy.
  • SR Suntour XCT fork with 100mm travel for smooth off-road performance
  • New A1 Premium Aluminum frame w/ ORE downtube for a lighter, more compliant, and durable bike
