"Nothing quite beats the thrill of mountain biking, and the Pitch Expert is the perfect way to get introduced to the feeling.
Its hardtail design makes climbing a breeze, while also making descending an agile,
fun-filled affair. Our Sport Trail 27.5 geometry, meanwhile,
keeps you comfortable and confident on a variety of terrain, and the Shimano component spec keeps you rolling for miles,
with minimal maintenance. It's time to get out there and have some fun.
The frame is constructed from lightweight A1 Premium Aluminum in order to provide a compliant, durable platform to support our acclaimed Sport Trail 27.5 Geometry.
Combined, you get a bike that's extremely versatile, making it equally capable on the climbs and descents.
Custom SR Suntour 27.5 fork features our Multi-Circuit Damping technology to eliminate any "pogo" effect by delivering 80/100mm
(size-specific) of hydraulic damped suspension and rebound that smooths out rough terrain.
The Shimano Deore rear derailleur provides crisp, reliable shifting that you can count on when the going gets rough.
With it, you'll be able to precisely move through the wide, 11-34t gear range, to make climbing hills almost as easy as rolling on the flats."
