The fun, reliable mountain bike.

The rugged Pitch Comp 1X 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.

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.

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.

  • Mountain bike geometry, you’ve changed. For the better, that is. Our modern hardtail 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.
  • The microSHIFT Advent drivetrain packs a mountain’s worth of gearing into a simple, efficient, nine-speed system, with an ultra-low gear for the steepest climbs, a clutch rear derailleur that all but eliminates annoying chain slap, and an ergonomic multi-control shifter.
