Specialized Rockhopper Elite 27.5 2022 Hardtail Mountain Bike Gloss Sage Green/Oak Green

3.6 out of 5 Customer Rating

The Details

Bags of bike at a great price point, the Rockhopper Elite is lightweight and packed with a spec to give you endless riding fun as you hit the trails. The RockShox Judy air-sprung fork soaks up bumps in the trail to keep you comfortable and allows you to 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 11-speed drivetrain which provides smooth and reliable shifting, while hydraulic disc brakes from Shimano provide reliable stopping power and great modulation in all weathers and all riding conditions.

 

27.5 inch wheels provide a nimble and playful ride feel. With tubeless ready wheels and tyres you can quickly and easily convert your wheels to tubeless letting you run lower pressures on the trail to lower your rolling resistance and increase your grip as well as reducing your risk of picking up a puncture. 

 

It's not only the componentry that provides incredible bang for your buck with the Rockhopper Elite. Specialized's A1 premium aluminium frame has hydroformed top and down tubes to keep weight down, features internal cable routing giving the bike a sleek aesthetic and is dropper post compatible.
 
  • A1 premium butted alloy frame with internal cable routing
  • RockShox Judy fork
  • Shimano Deore 11-speed gearing

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 27.5.
