Details

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 1x10 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 "Whoah, so that's what a real bike feels like."

A heart of gold, the Rockhopper's lightweight yet durable Premium A1 Aluminum frame 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, we've paired each Rockhopper frame size 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.

- Shimano's 1x10 wide-range 10-speed Deore shifting boasts both the pedigree and performance that legends are made of.

- Tubeless-ready rims and tires keep your options open and traction on-call.

Looking for a bike only to find out it's not available?  This is why you should pre-order the bike you want ASAP.  We are currently out of stock on many bikes and we expect the bike shortage to continue through the 2021 season.  

When you pre-order a bike, you'll hold your spot in line for the bike when it arrives.  Some bikes will be available in spring 2021 or late 2021 or even early 2022. 

You can pre-order the bike online.  If the bike will not be available within 2 weeks, we will take a $50.00 deposit.  The balance due will be charged when you pick up the bike or when the bike is shipped.  If you prefer to pay for the bike in full at the time of purchase, please request this as your checking out online in the "comment" field. 

If for any reason you decide to cancel the order, the deposit is refundable.

WHEN WILL MY BIKE BE AVAILABLE?

You can call or email us and we will do our best to give you an ETA when you place the pre-order.   However due to the increased demand, manufacturing delays, shipping logistics, the availability dates may change at anytime.  We ask that you keep in contact with our staff for any updates on availability.   Many times there will be delays but we are not notified of these changes.  If you keep in contact with our staff, they can give you the most recent ETA.
