Where efficiency and capability cross paths on the trail, you'll find the Men's Rockhopper. The reasons are pretty simple. Sure, as a hardtail, it has some natural climbing ability, but what isn't so obvious is the low bottom bracket, roomy top tube, and ultra short chainstays. In other words, it puts out a planted, confident, and snappy ride over a diverse array of terrain. It's fast on the way up, and even faster on the way down.
Its geometry is based on the Epic Hardtail and Chisel, which optimizes reach, angles, and standover height, so you get nearly the same handling and pedaling efficiency as the very best we have to offer.
Hidden rack mounts, dropper post routing, and a frame that's 250 grams lighter than ever before make it super versatile without sacrificing anything to performance.
