Specialized Rockhopper 27.5 2022 Hardtail Aluminium Mountain Bike Gloss Flo Red/ White

3.2 out of 5 Customer Rating

The Details

The Specialized Rockhopper 27.5 is the perfect riding partner to let you attack twisty technical trails with responsive handling and confidence-inspiring stability. 27.5-inch wheels roll super fast and ride over obstacles with ease, while the SR Suntour XCM fork up front soaks up bumps in the trail with ease, keeping you comfortable and able to tackle tougher obstacles. Then once you reach smoother roads you can lock out the fork to increase power efficiency.

You'll have a wide range of reliable gears for all-terrain with the microSHIFT's 2 x 8-speed drivetrain, while Radius CX7 mechanical disc brakes provide reliable stopping power and great modulation in all weathers and all riding conditions.

It's not only the componentry that provides value for money beyond belief with the Rockhopper Comp. Specialized's A1 premium aluminium frame features internal cable routing giving the mountain bike a sleek aesthetic, as well as dropper post compatibility and stealth rack mounts that let you kit up and head off on longer off-road expedition rides when adventure calls.

  • Dropper-post compatible
  • SR Suntour XCE lock-out fork
  • microSHIFT 2 x 8-speed drivetrain
