We know that picking a mountain bike can be a bit of daunting process, what with all of the options and technology floating around out there. 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 650b 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 650b 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.
  • The frame is constructed from lightweight A1 Premium Aluminum in order to provide a compliant, durable platform to support our acclaimed Sport Trail 650b Geometry. Combined, you get a bike that's extremely versatile, making it equally capable on the climbs and descents.
  • Custom SR Suntour 650b fork pairs a coil spring with our Multi-Circuit Damping technology to eliminate any "pogo" effect by delivering 80/100mm (size-specific) of hydraulic damped suspension that smooths out rough terrain.
  • A Shimano Alivio rear derailleur controls the rear shifting with durable aplomb. It shifts along a wide gear range, 11-34t, so you can ride confidently knowing that you'll always have the right gear for the hill at hand.
