    Riprock 24

    Delivery Icon

    We deliver! Just say when and how.

    Freedom is the absence of fear. And riding fearlessly requires a bike that can handle your kid’s imagination. It’s why we designed Riprock to be a mountain bike inclusive of all the features needed for superior ripping, like modern geometry, Ground Control tires, hydraulic disc brakes, and internally routed cables. Finally, we threw in a wider-range drivetrain, making Riprock truly the perfect bike to inspire riders to climb higher and tackle the downhills freely.

    Kids can’t ride confidently if they’re not riding comfortably. With Riprock, fit comes first. This meant using data to reimagine everything from how they grip to how they sit to create a bike specifically and proportionally for kids. We did all this because comfort creates confidence. And more confidence always leads to more riding fearlessly.

    Defective Breaks & Rear Hub

    Within one year of owning we had to replace both breaks, rebuild free hub twice. So much potential but the components of the bike are garbage. Between the bike, labor costs and replacement parts I would have been better off buying a Trailcraft.

    Riprock 24 in Orange looks Pink

    Beware the Orange color in person is more of a pinkish color. Very different from the solid orange on the website. I had to return as my son noticed immediately. Customer Service confirmed I loose $70 dollars in shipping. I'm seeing other reviews showing the online colors are known customer complaints which is concerning that the Website has not been updated for Green as well. No Specialized store near me. I consider myself a reasonable shopper but this is a bit deceitful. Burned once so going to continue local shopping.

    Good bike. Defective brakes

    It’s a great kids bike for the size and I’d still recommend. However, add $150 to the price (and more $ if you need to hire a shop to install new brakes) as you will have to replace the Radius brakes that come spec’d. Disappointed Specialized still specs this bike with brakes with a known and common manufacturing defect. With the initial lever squeeze, the lever goes all the way to the handle bar. On the second or third squeeze it finally catches. Completely unacceptable for a kid learning to brake. Search “Radius brake issue” and you’ll see. A brake bleed doesn’t solve the issue.

    High quality build and ruggedness for my son’s first mountain bike

    A great bike for my son who just turned 9 - we enjoyed putting it together for his birthday. And he can grow into it. He’s very tall for a 9 year old so this bike is probably suited for a 10-11 year old. The knobby tires slows him down ( a good thing) from his rip rock 20” which had smoother tires. The only negative is no kickstand or bottom brackets or treads to attach one. -but I understand this is a real mountain bike and not a street bike.

    My 6 year old was

    My 6 year old was able to grasp riding his bike in 2 weeks exactly, no training wheels. This bike is smooth riding and sleek. My son picked out the gloss blaze/black color. It’s a bright nice color and he gets lots of compliments.
