When it comes to mountain bike efficiency, it’s hard to beat a hardtail. And when it comes to learning the ropes of mountain biking, efficiency is the name of the game. With this in mind, our Pitch Expert 650b features a hardtail design that keeps the rear end of the bike planted to the trail under effort, while our acclaimed Sport Trail 650b Geometry ensures that you’ll feel comfortable and confident in the process. And to keep with this theme, it features a lightweight aluminium frame that adds to compliance on the downhill and speed when you’re going up the trail. Sprinkle in a thoughtful component selection and plenty of suspension up front to get the job done, and you have yourself a bike that’s ready to hit the dirt.
