PITCH EXPERT 1X - 2020
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.
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.
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.
