Proving that true trail riding capability doesn't have to come at the cost of your wallet, the Rockhopper Expert is 30 years of balancing value and performance to offer exceptional components at a budget friendly price.

Start with a quality engineered Premium A1 Aluminum frame, and add in modern geometry that keeps one eye on efficiency and the other on confident capability and you've got the rock-solid foundation of Specialized's best Rockhopper yet.

Pair that with an excellent parts list (including the RockShox's Judy SoloAir fork and Shimano's always-in-charge MT200 hydraulic disc brakes) and you have a tubeless-ready, SRAM Eagle 1x12 equipped Rockhopper that's ready to send it on the next trail you throw it at.

  • A heart of gold, presented in Specialized's lightweight yet durable Premium A1 Aluminum, the Rockhopper features butted aluminum tubes in order to keep weight low and strength high, all while providing increased standover clearance, slick internal cable routing and dropper-post compatibility. With the goal of making sure that the Rockhopper offers both the best fit and best performance for every person, no matter their measure, each Rockhopper frame size is paired with the optimal wheel size. The result is a Rockhopper to fit every rider and the assurance that every Rockhopper is rolling on the best-handling wheel for its frame size.
  • A breath of fresh air at this price point—and plenty north of it, RockShox’s Judy SoloAir brings air-sprung sensitivity and performance to the masses with a killer value proposition: more bang, less buck. The TurnKey damper deftly dishes out travel letting you focus on what’s ahead.
  • Soar up climbs and dive down descents with SRAM's ultra-wide-range SX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain.
  • Tubeless-ready rims and tires keep your options open and traction on-call.
