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 A1 SL Aluminium frame, the Rockhopper is durable and lightweight and highly reliable having been backed by Specialized's lifetime guarantee. The SL aluminium also enhances the frame's tube shapes to ensure the best efficiency and the lowest possible drag whilst out on your ride. RockShox is known for high-quality professional suspension systems and their Recon RL, Solo Air, Boost™ fork found on this Rockhopper Pro is no different, providing up to 100mm of reliable, plush travel that sees you simply glide over your local trail. The Pro model from Specialized's Rockhopper range also comes complete with a futureproofed 1x11 chainset that gives you enough range to get up the hills and race down them, with the added benefit of not having to maintain your front derailleur or worrying about dropping your chain. 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 SL 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.
A RockShox Recon RL fork offers 80/90/100mm (size-specific) of plush, trail-taming travel, and stiff 32mm stanchions.
When setting up one-by, the Shimano SLX shifting makes it nearly impossible to drop a chain. Of course, you still get the clean, crisp shifts that Shimano is known for, too.
