Product Description

Details

Specialized Pitch Sport 650b 2018

The Sport version of the Pitch takes a leap in quality thanks to its Shimano BR-M375 mechanical disc brakes and its upgraded Shimano Altus/Acera gearing.

The Pitch Sport is available in two colourways: Gloss Hyper/Black or Satin Gloss Black/Black

Upgrades from Specialized Pitch

  • Shimano BR-M375 mechanical disc brakes
  • Shimano Shimano Altus/Acera drivetrain (over Tourney)

Paying a bit more for better quality Shimano components always pays for itself in terms of enhanced performance and longevity, thanks to the materials used (more metal, less plastic), the closer tolerances they're built to and their ease of maintenance.

Same as Specialized Pitch

All new progressive frame geometry (68.5 head / 73 degree seat tube angles) and fatter 27.5x2.3 Ground Control Tyres make this a perfect starter mountain bike.

  • Lightweight A1 Premium Aluminium frame from the first name in production mountain bikes
  • Wide double-wall rims on genuine Shimano hubs make a strong case for being the best MTB wheels you'll find on a bike this price
  • Proper trail geometry (68.5 head / 73 degree seat tube angles) and a fatter 27.5x2.3 version of the Specialized's Ground Control tyres (the first name in mountain bike treads) deliver confidence-inspiring control
  • The slack head tube angle makes for easier control on the downhills
  • The steeper seat tube angle helps you power up hills

Here's how Specialized describe their Pitch Sport

'We know that picking a mountain bike can be a bit of daunting process, with all of the options and technology floating around out there and everything. But while some suspension platforms and tech pass like fads in the wind, hardtails have stuck around since the advent of the mountain bike. That's why we built our Pitch Sport 650b around an aluminium hardtail design. The design allows the rear end to stay planted while you're pedalling, so it has plenty to offer in the way of efficiency on climbs and on the flats. And with our acclaimed Sport Trail 650b Geometry and ample suspension up front, you're guaranteed to feel confident and ready to rip when the trail tips downwards. It's everything you need to get there and get riding.

  • The frame is constructed from lightweight A1 Premium Aluminium in order to provide a compliant, durable platform to support our acclaimed Sport Trail 650b Geometry. Combined, you get a bike that's extremely versatile, making it equally capable on the climbs and descents.
  • Custom SR Suntour 650b fork pairs a coil spring with 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.
  • A Shimano Acera rear derailleur controls the rear shifting with durable aplomb. It shifts along a wide gear range, 11-34t, so you can ride confidently knowing that you'll always have the right gear for the hill at hand.'
