4.3 out of 5 Customer Rating

The Details

Built to hustle, the Specialized Rockhopper Expert MTB bike gives you the confidence to go out and hit trails and mountain tracks.

29-inch wheels roll super fast and ride over obstacles with ease, while the RockShox's Judy SoloAir fork up front soaks up bumps in the trail with ease, keeping you comfortable and able to tackle tougher obstacles.

You'll have a wide range of reliable gears for all-terrain with the SX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain, while MT200 hydraulic 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 Expert, Specialized's A1 Expert premium aluminium frame features internal cable routing giving the 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.
