That spot where the bike path turns from concrete to dirt? The new Specialized Pitch Sport is made to explore beyond, with a sturdy aluminium frame, smooth-riding front suspension, grippy tires for loose surfaces, and sure-stopping hydraulic disc brakes to keep you under control.

Old-school strongmen have nothing on Specialized's 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 650B Geometry for sure handling.

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

Why 650B (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 lightweight and agility, with those of the newer, oversize 29er version, like fast-rolling efficiency and easy roll over obstacles.

Highlights

  • 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 tyres feature Flak Jacket flat protection.
  • The heart of the Pitch Sport is the Sport Trail 27.5 Geometry, which features a roomy cockpit to keep your centre of gravity securely between the wheels for control, and a slacker head angle designed for more stable steering.
  • Specialized obsess about tyres a little. OK, a lot; it’s where the bike meets the trail, after all. So for the Pitch line, Specialized haven chosen their wide, 2.3-inch Ground Control Sport, with a versatile, fast-rolling knobby tread that offers superb grip and traction for any trail.
  • The key to mountain biking is confidence, which starts with knowing you’re in control. Thanks to the Shimano hydraulic disc brakes on the Pitch Sport, you’ll always know you have plenty of stopping power, no matter the trail conditions.
