For as long as mountain bikes have been in existence, the Specialized Rockhopper has been tempting riders offroad as an affordable, but very capable bike. From undulating open downland through to windy forest single track riding, the Rockhopper’s geometry enables the rider to tackle sharp, twisty trails with ease, while inspiring confidence on the descents. The Rockhopper Comp features Specialized's A1 Aluminium frame, which is an innovative design ensuring strength and stiffness where required, and less material where it's not. This results in a lightweight and stylish base with internal cable routing to complete a clean and fresh look. Suspension from SR SunTour in the way of the XCM fork benefits from Specialized's RxTune treatment whilst hydraulic disc brakes keep up with whatever you throw at them. While a bulletproof wheelset with Shimano hubs means you'll never want to stop riding this bike.
A heart of gold, presented in Specialized's lightweight yet durable Premium A1 Aluminum, the Rockhopper features butted aluminium tubes in order to keep weight low and strength high, all while providing increased standover clearance, slick internal cable routing and dropper-post compatibility. With the goal of making sure that the Rockhopper offers both the best fit and best performance for every person, no matter their measure, Specialized has paired each Rockhopper frame size with the optimal wheel size. The result is a Rockhopper to fit every rider and the assurance that every Rockhopper is rolling on the best-handling wheel for its frame size.
Tackle any climb with confidence, knowing that you won't run out of gears. The Shimano Acera 9-speed drivetrain, with two chainrings and a wide-range cassette, ensures you'll always find a suitable gear ratio for the terrain you are on. Ergonomic Rapidfire Plus™ trigger shifters offer comfortable and precise gear shifts without moving your hands and risking a short loss of control.
Specialized chose the front and rear tyres to optimise around the Rochkopper wheel’s purpose. The front and rear Ground Control Sport tyre provide aggressive side knobs that offer grippy cornering bite in varied conditions. With Rx Tune on Rockhopper, the SR Suntour XCM brings size-specific travel and spring rates to the show in a performance that’s sure to impress while also ensuring consistent geometry, handling and suspension performance, regardless of frame size
