OUT OF STOCK - Will return Soon

( 1 Review )

Are you ready for a seriously good time? Hit the trails on the Pitch Expert 1X, with a sturdy, lightweight aluminum frame for efficient climbing and dialed handling and high-quality suspension that turns any descent into the best rollercoaster you've ever been on.

TRAIL-OPTIMIZED GEOMETRY

The Sport Trail 27.5 geometry on the Pitch Expert 1X is designed for the perfect balance between stability and agility, with a position that keeps you perfectly balanced. The slack head angle offers precise line choice, while the short wheelbase mocks tight switchbacks.

SUREFIRE SHIFTING

The 10-speed Shimano Deore drivetrain features unparalleled performance in its class, with quick, quiet, precise shifts from the ergonomic Rapidfire Plus™ trigger shifter, and a clutch-style Shadow Plus™ rear derailleur that retains perfect chain tension to limit chain slap and bounce.

The air-sprung SR SunTour XCR air suspension fork offers 80/90/100mm of lightweight, size-specific travel.

Ground Control Sport tires in a wide 2.3-inch size keep the ride smooth and controlled.

A1 Premium Aluminum frame is the perfect balance of light weight and durability. 

  • We take a lot of time to get frames right; from material to geometry, it’s the heart of a bike. Our A1 Premium Aluminum frame features a rugged TIG-welded construction for long-lasting performance, with careful tube shaping to optimize low weight and smooth ride. We top it all off with our Sport Trail 27.5 geometry, chosen to give you the most confident and comfortable ride.
  • We’re dedicated to our Sport Trail 27.5 geometry, so we use size-specific SR SunTour air suspension on the Pitch Expert 1X. What’s the point of that? Varying the travel amount by frame size helps keep standover heights reasonable for smaller riders, and keeps the head angle and steering constant, so every rider, no matter how small or tall, gets a great ride.
  • 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.

For a Bike Under $1000, Very Good

Great bike for the money.

Girlfriend wanted a an upgraded bike she could use to keep up with me on trail riding, and that could be used for sprint Bikejor racing, we chose this bike. She wanted a 27.5" bike with with modern geometry, hydraulic disk brakes, a 1x drivetrain, and an air fork be more responsive while saving some weight over a coil fork. This bike fit the bill, and was only one of two that were under 1k; the other was the 2020 Vitus Nucleus 27 VRS (Deore 1x10).

Pros: Modern geometry, Shimano BR-MT200 brakes work great, the 1x10 shadow plus deore derailleur was quick, responsive and perfectly adjusted out of the box, decent tires that were setup with tubes that had solid metal Schrader valve stems, and most importantly for her a comfortable seat.

The only con of this bike is the Suntour XCR airspring fork. Since this is the most entry air fork you can get, I wasn't expecting wonders, but it did fall short. The main issue is that even after adjusting compression pressure and rebound, the fork is slow and stiff feeling when compressing and extending. Reaching out to Suntour, they suggested breaking it in a little, then do a service and re-greasing the inner stanchions. Another small con, she feels the peddles are too slippery, we will get some more grippy flats. Otherwise this was a great bike, worth the money.
