This Rockhopper comes spec'd with Shimano SLX 2x shifting that's simple and worry-free, powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes that'll stop on a dime, and a grippy combo of a Ground Control front and Fast Trak Sport rear tires that deliver superior control over almost any kind of terrain.
- The frame is constructed from lightweight A1 SL 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 just as well.
- A RockShox Recon RL fork offers 80/90/100mm (size-specific) of plush, trail taming travel, and stiff 32mm 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.
