The frame is constructed from lightweight A1 Aluminum in order to provide a compliant, durable platform to support our acclaimed XC Sport 29 Geometry. Combined, you get a bike that's more than efficient on climbs and descends with equal aplomb.
If you're ready to take your trail riding to the next level, let us introduce you to your new friend, the Rockhopper Pro. We built it to be light, durable, and exceedingly capable, but how we did it is far more interesting.
It starts with our new A1 SL alloy frame that has optimized tube shapes which 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.
This Rockhopper comes spec'd with a mix of renowned Shimano SLX and Deore components, powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes that'll stop on a dime, and grippy Ground Control tires that deliver superior control over almost any kind of terrain.
A Manitou Markhor 29 fork offers 80/90/100mm (size-specific) of plush, trail taming travel and stiff 30mm stanchions.
It's hard to beat the blend of durability, reliability, and performance that the Shimano SLX rear derailleur provides. It's designed to take a hit, and more importantly, its shifting is crisp, precise, and always on the money.
