We've been there. The trail can be a pretty intimidating place—intimidating, that is, until you hit it on the right bike. The Rockhopper 29 is the bike for you to find your confidence on the trail. It features our Trail 29 Geometry that will keep you feeling planted and comfortable over bumpy terrain, while the lightweight aluminum construction and durable, performance-driven components will have you flying up the trail in no time. It's the perfect start to a beautiful relationship.
- The frame is constructed from A1 Premium aluminum in order to provide a lightweight, durable platform to support our acclaimed Trail 29 Geometry. Combined, you get a bike that's efficient on climbs and eager on descents.
- Custom SR Suntour XCT 29 fork pairs a coil spring with our Multi-Circuit Damping technology to eliminate any "pogo" effect by delivering 80/100mm (size-specific) of hydraulic damped suspension and rebound that smooths out rough terrain.
- With reliable traction, puncture-resistance, and sheer speed over the dirt, our 29x2.1" Ground Control Sport tires will keep you rolling with confidence over almost any terrain.
- 29" alloy rims have been laced to our Stout hubs to form wheels that allow you mow over everything in sight, climb gracefully, and get to the bottom of the trail eager for more.
