Rockhopper Elite 29

Delivery Icon

We deliver! Just say when and how.

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 1x11 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.’

Good but not tubeless ready

Bought this to use when we go away in our motorhome and it rides fine for a basic bike but much of the info online states the rims/tyres are tubeless ready and they are not. The rim tape on the rims is normal rim tape and no where on the tyres does it state tubeless ready. I'm suspect also where the rims are joined.

Great bike

I'm a beginner mountain bike rider and found this bike very good to go dirt trails. The Shimano gear shifting is smooth and precise. I'm 6 foot 7 (2m tall) and the XXL size fits me great. The frame is also light.

Amazing bike - great price

I was looking for a bike that had an air fork, reliable 1x drivetrain and great brakes - the RH elite is it! It handles trails with ease, and is a ton of fun. I have absolutely no regrets about this purchase. Highly recommend!
