We've been there. The trail can be a pretty intimidating place at first. Intimidating, that is, until you find the right bike to start ripping on. And in our opinion, this bike is the Rockhopper 29—the perfect ride for you to find your confidence on the trail.
It starts with our new A1 Aluminum frame that has optimized tube shapes that save weight while dramatically improving aesthetics. To go along with these clean new lines, the new Rockhopper also has internal cable routing to further clean up the frame. Lastly, our Sport XC 29 geometry adjusts the reach, angles, and standover height to make for an improved fit across the size range. This is sure to keep you ripping and confident while heading both up and down the trail.
