Specialized Rockhopper Expert Mountain Bike 2021
The Specialized Rockhopper Expert Mountain Bike is the latest version of the brands stalwart, ultimately versatile, alloy hardtail. Receiving a complete redesign for 202, an already lofty level of ride quality is enhanced while the attractive price-to-performance ratio is maintained, enabling riders of all standards to attack trails, fire roads and downhill tracks with complete confidence and style.
The new frame is very much at the heart of the Rockhopper. A1 Premium Alloy is utilised due to its resilience, reliability and responsiveness and features a pinpoint butted configuration throughout the tube sections to reduce weight while preserving integrity. Presented with cross country inspired geometry, the ride character is punctuated by liveliness and composure over a complete spectrum of off-road terrain before the RockShox Judy SoloAir fork complements with its plush level of suspension to amplify trail accuracy and rider confidence.
The wheelset comprises robust alloy rims with a strength-enhancing offset design and smooth, well-sealed hubs that are laced together with durable stainless steel spokes to grant reliability and low-maintenance. Clever frame specific wheel sizing, either 27.5 or 29-inch, ensures optimal handling and poise, whatever the rider's size before tubeless-ready tyres bestow grip and compliance whatever the terrain.
A SRAM SX Eagle 1 x 12-speed gear setup provides a huge range of ratios to play with and allows any topography to be conquered with consummate ease before a full Shimano hydraulic disc brake platform bestows composed stopping power under any weather condition.
An easily maintained, threaded bottom bracket, internal cable routing, dropper post compatibility and discreet rack and kickstand mounts complete the build by offering further versatility and convenience to an already comprehensive steed.
