Maybe you're finding your legs on the singletrack, or perhaps you're just dirt-curious? Either way, the Rockhopper Sport 29 is the only bike you need to live out your trail fantasies. It places a focus on long haul performance, and we're not talking about 100-mile trail rides. Its corrosion-resistant hardware is built to last, while all of the components are purposely selected for their balance of strength and capability. And setting everything over the top is our Trail 29 Geometry that's guaranteed to leave you feeling planted, confident, and efficient out there on the dirt.
  • The frame is constructed from lightweight A1 Premium aluminum in order to provide a compliant, durable platform to support our acclaimed Trail 29 Geometry. Combined, you get a bike that's more than efficient on climbs and eager to get down to business on descents.
  • Custom SR Suntour XCM fork features 80/100mm (size-specific) of coil-sprung suspension travel that swings well above its weight class.
  • A Shimano Alivio rear derailleur controls the rear shifting with durable aplomb. It shifts along a wide gear range, 11-34t, so you can ride confidently knowing that you'll always have the right gear for the hill at hand.
