Specialized Rockhopper Sport 2019 - Hardtail MTB

The Rockhopper is on eof the most respected mountain bikes in the history of the sport. The Specialized Rockhopper Sport comes with an even more trail-friendly geometry.

Key Features

  • 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 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 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 hydraulic disc 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

Maybe you're finding your legs on the singletrack, or perhaps you're just dirt-curious? Either way, the Rockhopper Sport is the only bike you need to live out your trail fantasies.T his Rockhopper comes with a build spec that places an emphasis on reliability. This means that it features a full Shimano drivetrain, dependable Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, grippy Ground Control tyres that add traction over any trail, and an SR Suntour XCT 29 fork with our custom Multi-Circuit damping that eliminates the "pogo" feel commonly associated with coil forks.
