Yep we just re-read the spec sheet and still can't believe it either. The Rockhopper Elite is one helluva lot of bike.
Air-sprung fork? Let me introduce you to your new friend Judy. Discerning when it comes to your drivetrain? You'll find no fault-and no grade too steep—with a wide-range Shimano Deore 1x11 drivetrain. Why stop there? We didn't in order to allow you the pleasure of stopping yourself with Shimano's eager-to-please and oh-so-capable MT200 hydraulic disc brakes.
Each is impressive in their own right but the magic really lies in how they all come together into a Rockhopper that serves up singletrack with a nice big side of "Whoa so that's what a real bike feels like."
