Performance, reliability and value—the ROCKHOPPER is designed for stretches of flowing singletrack. With hydraulic disc brakes, 100mm-travel suspension fork and a lightweight fully butted A1 aluminum frame, the Rockhopper delivers proven performance riders will appreciate on the trail.
WHAT Fully formed and butted, lightweight A1 Premium Aluminum frame with balanced Trail 29 Geometry.
WHY Delivers faster acceleration and climbing, remains stable on descents, and offers increased comfort and durability. The combination of forming and butting produces the lightest frame possible, without sacrificing strength.
HOW Fully formed tubes are individually shaped for their unique purpose, allowing our engineers to optimize tubesets for specific performance characteristics. The butting process shaves excess material and weight in low-stress areas of each tube.
HYDRAULIC DISC BRAKES
WHAT Hydraulic disc brakes equipped on every model.
WHY More consistent stopping power, brake modulation, and overall performance in any weather and all trail conditions.
HOW A master cylinder pumps hydraulic oil to the caliper, which pushes the pistons into contact with the disc rotor. Hydraulic systems produce more power than mechanical brakes, which means increased power at the caliper and more modulation at the lever.
DAMPED 100MM-TRAVEL FORK WITH LOCKOUT
WHAT 100mm of front suspension travel with lockout.
WHY Riders demand enough travel to handle their favorite trails, but need lockout for extended climbs.
HOW Damped suspension provides a fine-tuned ride with the ability to fully lockout the fork for maximum climbing efficiency. Oil-regulated compression and rebound damping provides a smoother, more controlled ride over rough terrain.
WHAT Pro EVO and Comp models get 2x10 gearing.
WHY Reduced weight and less overlapping gear ratios.
HOW With 10-speed capabilities bikes don’t need triple chainrings, as most ratios are covered with the 20 speeds.
