Product Information

Specialized Rockhopper Elite 27.5 Mountain Bike

Bang for buck, the Rockhopper is one of the best-specced hardtail mountain bikes out there. As a true pioneer in mountain biking, the Specialized Rockhopper has been tempting riders offroad as an affordable, but very capable package. Whatever the riding conditions or terrain from undulating open downland through to windy forest single track riding, the Rockhopper’s geometry enables the rider to enjoy sharp, twisty trails with ease while inspiring confidence on the descents. The Rockhopper Elite utilises Specialized's A1 Aluminium frame, which is an innovative design ensuring strength and stiffness where required, and less material where it's not. This balance results in a lightweight and stylish base, that includes internal cable routing to aid with maintenance as well as aesthetics. Suspension from Rockshox in the way of the Judy fork help maintain comfort and traction, whilst hydraulic disc brakes from Shimano keep up with whatever you throw at them. The bike is finished nicely with a Shimano Deore drive train to ensure the shifting remains crisp and efficient. All things considered, a solid all-rounder at a competitive price.

Full Specification



The New Rockhopper

Specialized have really outdone ourselves here. Proving that true trail-taming capability doesn't have to come at an intimidating price, the Rockhopper Expert is the culmination of 30 years of redefining the relationship between value and performance. Start with a painstakingly engineered Premium A1 Aluminum frame, add in modern geometry that keeps one eye on efficiency and the other on confident capability and you have the rock-solid foundation of our best Rockhopper yet.


Reliable Sizing

The Rockhopper features butted aluminum 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 have 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.
