- Specialized A1 disc-specific frame with thin-walled butted main tubes.
- Manitou Axel Plus 100mm-travel fork with alloy steerer and adjustable damping.
- Shimano M525 hydraulic disc brakes - even better than Shimano cable discs.
- Specialized Roll-X tyres on Mavic 117 rims on disc (Shimano rear) hubs.
At the end of the day most people prefer a more subtle frame response and thats
where the finely honed Hopper really shows its class.
