2020 Specialized Pitch Sport 27.5 Mountain Bike

In-store Exclusive | Call for Details

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.

STRONG, SENSITIVE TYPE

Old-school strongmen have nothing on our A1 Premium Aluminum frame. But the Pitch Sport is in touch with its feelings too, offering a ride that’s as comfortable as it is durable, thanks to a lightweight proprietary alloy and Sport Trail 27.5 Geometry for sure handling.

SIZE-SPECIFIC SUSPENSION

It’s not enough to offer quality suspension like the coil-sprung SR SunTour XCT 30 fork on the Pitch Sport. We also custom-design travel based on frame size to keep the geometry and ride quality consistent over all sizes. Lockout limits annoying bobbing on smooth terrain.

SWEET SPOT WHEELS

Why 27.5-inch wheels exactly, not 27 or 28? It’s a happy medium which offers most of the benefits of the older 26-inch size, like light weight and agility, with those of the newer, oversize 29er version, like fast-rolling efficiency and easy roll over obstacles.

The 24-speed Shimano drivetrain gives you the right gear, anytime.

A long-lasting, rust-resistant KMC chain offers quiet, sure shifting.

Grippy Ground Control Sport tires feature Flak Jacket flat protection.
