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. Shimano's hydraulic disc brakes are made for fast and reliable braking all year round, no matter how bad the conditions get. Finally, the Rockhopper features Specialized's acclaimed 29 sports geometry that provides comfort, speed and most of all ... fun!
The frame is constructed from lightweight A1 Aluminum 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 with equal aplomb.
Custom SR Suntour XCT fork features 80/90/100mm (size-specific) of coil-sprung suspension travel that swings well above its weight class.
A Shimano Acera rear derailleur controls the rear shifting with durable aplomb. It shifts along a wide gear range, 11-34t, so you can ride confidently knowing that you'll always have the right gear for the hill at hand.
