Men's Rockhopper Sport
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 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.
This Rockhopper comes with a build spec that places an emphasis on reliability. This means that it features a full Shimano drivetrain, dependable Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, grippy Ground Control and Fast Trak tires that add traction over any trail, and an SR Suntour XCT 29 fork with our custom Multi-Circuit damping that eliminates the "pogo" feel commonly associated with coil forks.
