Specialized Pitch 27.5 2020

A mountain bike is freedom: the ability to pick a spot on the map and say, “Let’s go there,” or maybe go off the map altogether. With a lightweight frame, responsive front suspension, and powerful hydraulic disc brakes, the Pitch 27.5 is your perfect adventure partner. BEST OF BOTH WORLDS Riders have long debated whether fast-rolling 29er wheels were better than nimble 26ers. Turns out, the sweet spot for many is right in between, so the Pitch rolls on 27.5-inch wheels that keep much of a 29er’s confident handling in a tighter, lighter package.

STRONG YET SMOOTH The A1 Premium Aluminum is burlier than a brontosaurus’s backbone. But strong doesn’t have to mean harsh or heavy. Our engineers went over every tube, tweaking, pinching, nipping and tucking to make sure it offers a smooth ride no matter what the trail conditions are. TOP TO BOTTOM QUALITY The Pitch’s sure-handling Sport Trail 27.5 Geometry provides unrivaled stability.

SR SunTour XCE suspension fork keeps you grounded on the most technical trails. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes offer best-in-class power and reliability.

Highlights

  • The best mountain bikes are the ones that let you tackle any terrain with confidence. The Pitch’s sure-handling Sport Trail 27.5 Geometry is designed for ultimate stability, whether you’re railing down a flowy singletrack or picking your way through a technical section.
  • Control means keeping those tires firmly planted. That’s where great suspension comes in, like the SR SunTour XCE 28 suspension fork on the Pitch, which features a coil spring for unparalleled small-bump responsiveness. Size-specific travel (80mm or 100mm) keeps geometry and handling consistent for riders of all sizes.
  • Braking isn’t just about power, it’s about how that power is used. The Shimano hydraulic disc brakes on the Pitch feature best-in-class modulation, so you can apply exactly the right amount of stopping power, without a death grip on the lever.
