At a glance

The 2016 Specialized Pitch Sport 650b is an Street Aluminium / Alloy mountain bike. It has SR Suntour suspension and a Shimano drivetrain. The bike is part of Specialized's Pitch range of mountain bikes.

We know that picking a mountain bike can be a bit of daunting process, what with all of the options and technology floating around out there. 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.
