£749 – Specialized Rockhopper Elite 29er Mountain Bike Gloss Arctic Blue 2022 Medium – Gloss Arctic Blue/Black
Yep we just re-read the spec sheet and still can’t believe it either. The Rockhopper Elite is one helluva lot of bike. Air-sprung fork? Let me introduce you to your new friend Judy. Discerning when it comes to your drivetrain? You’ll find no fault—and no grade too steep—with a wide-range Shimano Deore 1×11 drivetrain. Why stop there? We didn’t in order to allow you the pleasure of stopping yourself with Shimano’s eager-to-please and oh-so-capable MT200 hydraulic disc brakes. Each is impressive in their own right but the magic really lies in how they all come together into a Rockhopper that serves up singletrack with a nice big side of ‘ Whoah so that’s what a real bike feels like.’ A heart of gold presented in our lightweight yet durable Premium A1 Aluminum the Rockhopper’s butted aluminum frame features hydroformed top and downtubes in order to keep weight low and strength high all while providing increased standover clearance slick internal cable routing and dropper-post compatibility. With the goal of making sure that the Rockhopper offers both the best fit and best performance for every person no matter their measure we’ve paired each Rockhopper frame size with the optimal wheel size. The result is a Rockhopper to fit every rider and the assurance that every Rockhopper is rolling on the best-handling wheel for its frame size. Bringing our Rx Tune to Rockhopper for the very first time the lockout-equipped SR Suntour XCM with custom Multi-Circuit damping brings size-specific travel and spring rates to the show in a performance that’s sure to impress while also ensuring consistent geometry handling and suspension performance regardless of frame or wheel size. Beautifully beastly SRAM Level hydraulic disc brakes pack a mean bite but deliver their power with a refined intuitive feel to make for a package that punches way above its pay grade. Keep things simple with a durable 1x MicroSHIFT drivetrain that offers plenty of range along with a clutch-equipped rear derailleur that keeps your ride quite—and your chain on. Pair dead-reliable hubs from Formula with our 25-millimeter internal diameter hookless Stout rims for a wheelset hat-trick: strong light and durable.
