Excuse the gloat, however Specialized has truly done something extraordinary for themselves here. Demonstrating that genuine path subduing capacity doesn’t need to come at a scary value, the 2021 Specialized Rockhopper Expert 29er Hardtail Mountain Bike is the perfection of 30 years of rethinking the connection among worth and execution.
Start with a meticulously designed Premium A1 Aluminum outline, include present day calculation that watches out for productivity and the other on certain ability and you have the unshakable establishment of the best Rockhopper yet. Pair that with a sections list that simply doesn’t stop (…can we get a whoop for RockShox’s Judy SoloAir fork and Shimano’s consistently in-control MT200 water powered circle brakes?) and you have a tubeless-prepared, SRAM Eagle 1×12-prepared Rockhopper that is totally ready to fly.
- An endearing personality, introduced in our lightweight yet sturdy Premium A1 Aluminum, the Rockhopper highlights butted aluminum tubes to keep weight low and strength high, all while giving expanded standover leeway, smooth inward link directing and dropper-post similarity. Determined to ensure that the Rockhopper offers both the best fit and best presentation for each individual, regardless of their action, Specialized matched each Rockhopper outline size with the ideal wheel size. The outcome is a Rockhopper to fit each rider and the confirmation that each Rockhopper is moving on the best-dealing with wheel for its casing size.
- A much-needed refresher at this value point—and bounty north of it, RockShox’s Judy SoloAir carries air-sprung affectability and execution to the majority with an amazing offer: all the more bang, less buck. The TurnKey damper deftly doles out movement allowing you to zero in on the thing that’s coming down the road.
- Take off up climbs and jump down plunges with SRAM’s super wide-range SX Eagle 1×12 drivetrain.
- Tubeless-prepared edges and tires keep your choices open and footing on stand-by.
