2022 Specialized Rockhopper Expert 27.5

£1,199.00

Excuse the brag but we’ve really outdone ourselves here.

Clear

Proving that true trail-taming capability doesn’t have to come at an intimidating price the Rockhopper Expert is the culmination of 30 years of redefining the relationship between value and performance.

Start with a painstakingly engineered Premium A1 Aluminum frame add in modern geometry that keeps one eye on efficiency and the other on confident capability and you have the rock-solid foundation of our best Rockhopper yet.

Pair that with a parts list that just doesn’t quit (…can we get a shoutout for RockShox’s Judy SoloAir fork and SRAM’s always-in-charge Level hydraulic disc brakes?) and you have a tubeless-ready SRAM Eagle 1×12-equipped Rockhopper that’s absolutely prepared to fly.
