Description

We've been there. The trail can be a pretty intimidating place at first. Intimidating, that is, until you find the right bike to start ripping on. & in our opinion, this bike is the Rockhopper—the perfect ride for you to find your confidence on the trail.

It starts with our new A1 Aluminum 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, & standover height to make for an improved fit across the size range. This is sure to keep you ripping & confident while heading both up & down the trail.

This Rockhopper comes with a build spec that places an emphasis on reliability. This means that it features a full Shimano drivetrain, no-fuss mechanical disc brakes, grippy Ground Control Sport tires that add traction over any trail, & an SR Suntour XCT 29 fork with our custom Multi-Circuit damping that eliminates the "pogo" feel commonly associated with coil forks.
