The Rockhopper was designed by Specialized for those curious about exploring the trail. No matter if it's for the single track, cross country or for getting to know your local forest, the Rockhopper can handle it. Constructed with Specialized's lightweight A1 Aluminium frame the Rockhopper is durable and lightweight and highly reliable having been backed by Specialized's lifetime guarantee. The coil-sprung Suntour XCT fork takes the pinch out of the trail, ensuring your rides aren't limited by how far or how long. This build of Specialized's Rockhopper comes complete with an improved 9-speed chainset compared to the Sports edition as well as featuring quick-release, Center Lock hubs that allow for smooth rolling, even on rugged surfaces. Finally, Shimano's BR-MT200, hydraulic disc brakes showcase the quality and reliability needed in harsh winter and wet conditions.
The parts you want
The frame is constructed from lightweight A1 aluminium in order to provide a compliant, durable platform to support our acclaimed XC Sport 29 Geometry. Combined, you get a bike that's more than efficient on climbs and descends just as well.
The SR Suntour XCM fork puts out 80/90/100mm (size-specific) of plush and reactive travel, provided by coil-sprung suspension that's custom-tuned for lighter riders.
A Shimano Acera rear derailleur controls the rear shifting with durable aplomb. It shifts along a wide gear range, 11-36t, so you can ride confidently knowing that you'll always have the right gear for the hill at hand.
