Product Details

Specialized Rockhopper Expert 2019 Mountain Bike

The expert version of the venerable Rockhopper is upgraded with the lighter weight SL version of Specialized's A1 aluminium alloy frame with boost QR 141x9mm forged dropouts.

Upgrades from Rockhopper Comp

  • A1 aluminium frame with boost rear spacing.
  • Lighter weight air sprung fork
  • Shimano Deore rear derailleur

Same as Rockhopper Comp

  • Slimmer frame tubes with internal cable routing for cleaner lines makes for a more compliant, lighter weight, better looking bike
  • The seat tube angle is a tad steeper (73.8 degrees in size medium) to position you over the cranks to help power you uphill
  • 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 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
  • Real Shimano hubs and Shimano hydraulic disc brakes help ensure exceptional performance and reliability for a bike in this price range
  • Why you want hydraulic disc brakes

Here's how Specialized describe the Rockhopper Expert
The Rockhopper Expert 29 is the perfect bike to begin your dive into the XC world. That's because we built it to be light, durable, and exceedingly capable, but how we did it is almost as fun as riding it.

It starts with our new A1 SL alloy frame that features Boost™ QR 141 spacing, internal cable routing, and optimized tube shapes that save weight and give clean lines to 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.

TThis Rockhopper comes spec'd with a mix of durable Shimano components, powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, a grippy Ground Control front tyre and Fast Trak at the rear, and an SR Suntour XCR-Air fork with just the right amount of travel.

  • The frame is constructed from lightweight A1 SL 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 just as well.
  • SR Suntour XCR-Air fork features 80/90/100mm (size-specific) of suspension travel that swings well above its weight class.
  • Shimano Deore rear derailleur provides crisp, reliable shifting that you can count on when the going gets rough. With it, you'll be able to precisely move through the wide gear range to make cruising the flats almost as easy climbing those hills.
