You know that old saying about the right tool for the job? For mountain biking, that’s the
Pitch Expert 2X. With a proven A1 Premium Aluminum frame and Sport Trail 27.5
Geometry for responsive handling, and an 18-speed drivetrain, it’s built for legit trails.
• We get a little nerdy about suspension; that’s why we picked SR SunTour’s XCR fork
for the Pitch Expert 2X. The XRC’s lightweight air spring is responsive to big and
small bumps, and we custom-design an option with size-specific travel to keep
handling consistent no matter how tall you are.
• The double-chainring Shimano Deore drivetrain features a wide-ranging 18 gears to
keep you spinning comfortably even on long climbs. With a Rapidfire Plus™
multi-trigger shifter, fast, reliable shifts are literally right at your fingers, so you can
pick the perfect gear every time while keeping a firm grip on the bar.
• Our long-running Ground Control Sport tires are a perennial fave, thanks to the
knobby tread pattern that’s optimized for great grip and control in a variety of trail
conditions. The wide, 2.3-inch version is almost a second suspension, while the Flak
Jacket layer embedded in the casing fends off sharp rocks or anything else that
threatens to take the air out of a great ride.
