Specialized Rockhopper Comp 2018

One of the most respected mountain bikes in the history of the sport, the Rockhopper Comp, upgraded for 2018 with a more trail-friendly geometry.

  • Slimmer frame tubes with internal cable routing for cleaner lines makes for a more compliant, lighter weight, better looking bike
  • The frame has been further upgraded for 2018 with a more trail-friendly geometry
  • The head tube angle is a more shallow 69.8 degrees (was 71˚ last year) to facilitate downhill control
  • The seat tube angle is a tad steeper (73.8 degrees in size medium) to position you over the cranks for faster climbs
  • The frame is constructed from lightweight A1 Premium aluminium in order to provide a compliant, durable platform to support Specialized's acclaimed Trail 29 Geometry
  • The result is a bike that's more than efficient on climbs and eager to get down to business on descents
  • Every 2018 Rockhopper rolls on 29 inch tyres as an alternative to the consensus that 27.5/650B tyres are best for most riders
  • This Rockhopper offers convincing evidence that bigger tyres still have their advantages, especially for faster courses and taller riders, and Specialized have to be congratulated for continuing to produce great value 29ers as good as this
  • The Specialized Ground Control Sport front and rear specific 29er tyres with Flak Jacket flat protection, which Specialized spec on their Rockhoppers, are legendary in mountain bike circles
  • Real Shimano hubs and Shimano hydraulicdisc brakes help ensure exceptional performance and reliability for a bike in this price range
  • Why you want hydraulic disc brakes
  • Specialized Body Geometry saddle - one of the best guarantees you'll cycle in comfort

Upgrades from Rockhopper Sport

  • Shimano Acera 3x9 gear shifting is that bit slicker than Altus 3x8
  • Wider Specialized tyres for even more profound ground control

Here's how Specialized describe the Rockhopper Comp
Whether you've been riding trails for decades or you're just starting your XC journey, the Rockhopper Comp is here to take your rides to the next level.

It starts with our new A1 Aluminium frame that has optimized tube shapes which save weight while dramatically improving aesthetics. To go along with these clean new lines, the new Rockhopper also has internal cable routing to further clean up the frame. Lastly, our Sport XC 29 geometry adjusts the reach, angles, and standover height to make for an improved fit across the size range. This is sure to keep you ripping and confident while heading both up and down the trail.

This Rockhopper comes with a no-nonsense spec featuring a full Shimano drivetrain, dependable Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, grippy Ground Control tyres that add traction over any trail, and an SR Suntour XCM 29 fork with our custom Multi-Circuit damping that eliminates the "pogo" feel commonly associated with coil forks.

  • The frame is constructed from lightweight A1 Aluminium 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.
  • The SR Suntour XCM fork puts out 80/90/100mm (size-specific) of plush and reactive travel, provided by air-sprung air-sprung suspension that's custom-tuned for lighter riders.
  • 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.
