2021 Specialized Rockhopper Expert hardtail mountain bike in Satin Silver Dust and Black Holographic has excellent performance and great value. Specialized's goal of making sure that the Rockhopper offers both the best fit and best performance for every person, no matter their measure, has been achieved by pairing each Rockhopper frame size with the optimal wheel size (27.5 or 29 inches). The result is a Rockhopper to fit every rider and the assurance that every Rockhopper has the best-handling. At the heart of the Rockhopper is the lightweight but durable A1 Aluminium frame. Butted aluminium tubes keep weight low and strength high while providing increased standover clearance, slick internal cable routing and dropper-post compatibility. 

There are handling advantages of pairing each rider with their ideal wheel size and suspension, ensuring the Rockhopper Elite works its hardest for everyone. The Rockhopper Expert is represented well in the spec put on this bike. Thanks to RockShox Judy, Solo Air, Turnkey damper, 46mm offset, QR, 80/90/100mm travel fork air-sprung sensitivity and performance. The TurnKey damper deftly dishes out travel, letting you focus on what's ahead. Coupled with the frame options ensures consistent geometry, handling and suspension performance.

Shimano's 1x10 wide-range 10-speed Deore shifting and SRAM cassette boast both pedigree and performance. Shimano's eager-to-please and oh-so-capable MT200 hydraulic disc brakes. Tubeless-ready rims and tires keep your options open and traction on-call.

Each component is impressive in its own right. Still, the magic lies in how they all come together into the Rockhopper Elite to give you a highly size customized and extremely spec capable bike letting you genuinely enjoy blasting those trails.

This bike is great for screaming through the trails the Rockhopper gives you the confidence of more specific geometry giving you excellent handling capabilities. Coupled with the Judy fork Hydraulic disc brakes you'll blast those trails faster than ever before.

Specialized MTB Range Guide

Specialized have been making mountain bikes for nearly as long as there have been mountain bikes. Models like the Rockhopper and Stumpjumper have been staples of the range for decades with the technology being updated and refined every year. The 2022 Specialized mountain bike range has bikes for all kinds of mountain bikers with prices ranging from £500 to over £10,000.

All Specialized mountain bikes are ‘beyond gender’. Although they are technically unisex, Specialized tend to fit more female friendly saddles on the smaller size bikes and more male friendly saddles on the larger bikes. These can easily be swapped out to suit preferences.

Who are Specialized?

Specialized is one of the best-known quality bike brands in the world. Started by a group of riders in 1974. A fact which has guided their decision making ever since.

" Made for riders, by riders."

They strove to make the best quality tires when quality tyres weren't around. When people wanted to ride cruisers in the dirt, they made the first production mountain bike. When roadies wanted to go faster, Specialized doubled down on carbon and built their own wind tunnel.

Bikes like the Allez, Rockhopper and Stumpjumper have developed followings and reputations of their own. Specialized has a reputation for making high-end, high-quality bikes. Specialized bikes always look great with high-quality paint and sensible sizing hel0s you get the right bike each time. If you buy a Specialized bike you can be guaranteed it will do what it is supposed to and will last.

Mountain Bike Buying Guide

Mountain biking is an incredibly diverse sport. Mountain bikes now come in three main flavours. They are XC, Trail and Enduro.

XC – short for cross country, are quick race bikes. They will normally have 29” wheels and come with 100mm of suspension. If you are mainly going to be riding bridleways and natural trails in the South East of England, where our shops are, an XC bike will be the quickest and most efficient option.

Trail – these bikes are designed to be pedalled up and down hill and for use on bridleways and natural trails, but also at dedicated trail centres. They normally come with 130mm or 140mm of suspension travel and can have either 27.5” or 29” wheels, but 29” is quickly becoming the norm. Trail bikes are good all-rounders. They won’t be as fast as an XC bike on the flat but they can handle a lot more challenging terrain, and a few jumps. If you plan on taking your bike to trail centres in Wales, or to the Alps, then a trail bike may be your best option.

Enduro – enduro racing is a thing in and of itself but many people buy enduro bikes for ‘aggressive’ trail riding and uplift days at places like Bike Park Wales. This generally means challenging downhill trails with some big jumps. With around 160mm of suspension travel enduro bikes can take some big hits. They are designed to be efficient enough to pedal up hills but really come into their own when pointed downhill. You get enduro bikes in either 27.5” or 29” wheel sizes as well as mullet setups of 29 at the front and 27.5 at the back.


Men’s and women’s mountain bikes

Nearly all the mountain bikes we sell are now unisex. All of the big brands have gradually stopped doing dedicated men’s and women’s bikes over the last few years. Instead they are focussed on producing bikes in a bigger range of sizes. So, for instance, the Trek Marlin 5 is a unisex bike that now comes in sizes from XXS to XXL large. This means it will fit riders from 4’ 5” to 6’ 5” and everything in between.
