The rugged Pitch Comp is built to get you way out there and back on every adventure. We relentlessly refined the Pitch’s handling for an exquisite balance of an agile, playful feel, with stability at speed, all in a proven frame design with durable performance parts.
THE SWEET SPOT
What to pick, the nimble 26-inch wheel size or the fast-rolling 29er? Neither, we said. The the sweet spot for many riders, and trails, is right in between, so the Pitch rolls on 27.5-inch wheels that offer a 29er’s confident handling in a tighter, lighter package.
STRENGTH AND GRACE
The A1 Premium Aluminum frame is pretty much the definition of strong. But that doesn’t mean it rides like a brute. Our engineers carefully optimized the shape of every tube to ensure it offers a smooth, comfortable, confident ride even on the bumpiest trails.
Double-chainring Shimano drivetrain handles steep climbs with ease.
SR Suntour XCM suspension fork with Multi-Circuit custom damping.
Sure-gripping Ground Control Sport tires for reliable traction.
Hardtails might be the oldest mountain bike design but they continue to evolve. Our modern geometry prizes a roomy reach and short stem to keep you balanced over the wheels, while 94mm of trail—almost identical to our rowdy Fuse line—provides precise steering at any speed. You know that feeling when you go into a corner a little too fast and can’t slow down? Yeah, us neither, at least not with these powerful Shimano MT-200 hydraulic disc brakes. Dual-chainring drivetrains still have their place. Long climbs, for example, where the 18-speed Shimano Altus drivetrain on the Pitch Comp 2X provides the perfect gear for any grade, and closer gear-to-gear jumps than a 1X system so you can spin comfortably no matter the terrain.
