2022 Rockhopper 26

Better performance. Better value. Better Rockhopper. By tapping the fit and handling advantages of pairing each rider with their ideal wheel size and suspension that works its hardest for everyone thanks to our size-specific Rx Tune, we’ve baked in added performance to the all-new Rockhopper without dialing up the price.

Shimano and MicroSHIFT team up for drivetrain duties with a robust 2x8 drivetrain that can handle everything you’re throw down while confident braking from Radius CX7 mechanical disc brakes seals the deal of the century.

We bought the 26” Rockhopper

We bought the 26” Rockhopper for our 9 year old son. He rides pretty hard and does put some distance in his rides. So far he says it’s the best bike he has ridden. His previous bikes were Kona, and Giant. We would highly recommend this bike to any bike loving kid. Sleek design and well made. Also Specialized customer service has been outstanding. We will definitely be purchasing more bikes from this company!

Would Recommend?

My Specialized Rock Hopper: I have ridden since 2001....

I am a cyclist and My Rock Hopper is still my favorite of all my 4 bikes. Purchased at Greggs Greenlake Cycles on July 28, 2001 in Seattle, WA. My FAVORITE BIKE SHOP!!!!! With the greatest Bike techs! I am Almost 80 years old and will cycle Forever Safely! Bought my RH in 2001 because back then my Raleigh road bike kept getting flat tires. Seattle did not have bike lanes back then. Oftentimes on my road bike I would have to jump up and down off curbs to avoid getting hit by a car. Boom! immediate flat tire on my road bike. As soon as i had my RH no more flats from jumping off curbs or unseen broken glass in the street. Over 22 years, I have ridden this bike a lot and still do! I have needed to replace the TIRES ONLY ONE TIME! GO Specialized!!!! You really know how to build them! Thanks! My Best, Kathryn in Seattle, WA
