Specialized Rockhopper Pro 2018

This top of the Specialized Rockhopper mountain bike range model is upgraded with a Manitou Markhor fork and a Shimano SLX/Deore 2x10 drivetrain.

Upgrades from Rockhopper Expert 2018

  • Lightweight air-spring Manitou fork
  • Shimano Deore 2x10 shifters with SLX Shadow rear mech make for an even more robust drivetrain
  • The 22/36 chainrings and 11-36 cassette gives a really wide range of gears for every terrain in a simpler format than a 3x9 setup

Same as Rockhopper Expert 2018

  • Lighter weight deluxe SL version of Specialized's A1 aluminium frame
  • 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 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 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 Rockhopper's Specialized Ground Control Sport front and rear specific 29er tyres with Flak Jacket flat protection are legendary in the mountain bike community
  • 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's Body Geometry saddle is one of the best guarantees you'll cycle in comfort

Here's how Specialized describe the Rockhopper Pro

'If you're ready to take your trail riding to the next level, let us introduce you to your new friend, the Rockhopper Pro. We built it to be light, durable, and exceedingly capable, but how we did it is far more interesting.

It starts with our new A1 SL alloy 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 spec'd with a mix of renowned Shimano SLX and Deore components, powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes that'll stop on a dime, and grippy Ground Control tires that deliver superior control over almost any kind of terrain.

  • 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.
  • A Manitou Markhor 29 fork offers 80/90/100mm (size-specific) of plush, trail taming travel and stiff 30mm stanchions.
  • It's hard to beat the blend of durability, reliability, and performance that the Shimano SLX rear derailleur provides. It's designed to take a hit, and more importantly, its shifting is crisp, precise, and always on the money.'
