The Details

The Rockhopper is light and durable A1 premium aluminium frame that features internal cable routing giving the mountain bike a sleek aesthetic, as well as dropper post compatibility.

Performance is key which is why Specialized has paired each rider with their ideal wheel size and suspension which is via the size-specific Rx Tune.

Available in two wheel sizes, either 29" or 27.5". 29 inch wheels roll super fast and ride over obstacles with ease whist the 27.5 inch wheels provide a more nimble and playful ride feel.

The RockShox Judy air-sprung fork soaks up bumps in the trail to keep you comfortable and letting you tackle tougher obstacles while the bike does the hard work for you. You'll find no gradient too steep with a wide range Shimano Deore drivetrain provide smooth and smooth shifting, while Shimano BR-MT200 hydraulic disc brakes provide reliable stopping power and great modulation in all weathers and all riding conditions. 

  • A heart of gold, presented in our lightweight yet durable Premium A1 Aluminum, the Rockhopper’s butted aluminum frame features hydroformed top and downtubes 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, we’ve 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.
  • The Rockshox Judy TK brings size-specific travel to the show in a performance that’s sure to impress, ensuring consistent geometry and handling, regardless of frame or wheel size.
  • Shimano hydraulic disc brakes pack a mean bite but deliver their power with a refined, intuitive feel to make for a package that punches way above its pay grade.
  • Keep things simple with a durable 1x11 Shimano Deore drivetrain that offers plenty of range along with a clutch-equipped rear derailleur that keeps your ride quite—and your chain on.
  • Pair dead-reliable hubs from Formula with our 25-millimeter internal diameter, hookless Stout rims for a wheelset hat-trick: strong, light and durable.
 

Our Verdict

If you want a versatile and capable mountain bike with value for money beyond belief, look no further than the Specialized Rockhopper Elite.
