Delivery Icon

We deliver! Just say when and how.

Better performance. Better value. Better Rockhopper. By tapping the fit and handling advantages of pairing each rider with their ideal wheel size and suspension that works its hardest for everyone thanks to our size-specific Rx Tune, we’ve baked in added performance to the all-new Rockhopper without dialing up the price.

Shimano and MicroSHIFT team up for drivetrain duties with a robust 2x8 drivetrain that can handle everything you’re throw down while confident braking from Radius CX7 mechanical disc brakes seals the deal of the century.

Bad shock

I was the spike he was perfect for me for my kid. He left it for his birthday. The only problem is he wants to upgrade the sun door shock. Maybe try putting a fire shock on next time specialized

Amazing bike

After going out and riding i love this bike. I’m not a hardcore rider but this bike could do it all if I wanted to. It’s comfortable it’s quiet it looks awesome. It’s a perfect first bike or if your like me getting back into biking it’s perfect to jump right back in and not breaking the bank. After the brakes break in they work as good as anyone could ask for. I recommend everyone getting one.

Great bike, zero support after purchase.

The bike arrived in a reasonable amount of time and the quality of a Specialized bike shows the same as my other bikes, with the exception of the rear tire. Upon assembly, the rear tire was wobbling badly. So I dismounted the tire several times and replaced the inner tube to eliminate that as a factor. There is an obvious defect in the tire with a visible bulge. The wheel is true as expected. I contacted Rider Care via email and explained the issue with no response. We have snow still, so not a huge priority, but it is getting nicer and I want my daughter to ride her new bike. I have contacted Specialized Rider Care again and am waiting for a response. If no response, I sure cannot recommend buying from their online site. I'll change my opinion if they actually respond. This is not the customer support I would expect after buying a bike that came with a defective part rendering it unrideable. Stay tuned.

Olive green to kbopper

This bike is amazing! I was not able to go into the store and try my size but I went with my height and it is a perfect fit. I got Xs since I am 5’1. The color looks more green than the green highlighter color but I still think it’s amazing. Great quality for the price.

I bought it for my 12 year old granddaughter. It was a case of love at first pedal. We waded through objections, sighs, and hand wringing from Mom and Grandma to get it. The look on granddaughter’s face as she took off down the River trail the other day was well worth it. Freedom, speed, adventure. 😎😎😎
