Description

Remember when riding bikes was all about having fun? So does Specialized. For the Riprock, they strove to create the bike that any of us would have drooled over as a kid. An A1 premium aluminum frame is lightweight and built to withstand the tough use doled out by kids, while the geometry features an ultra-low standover that makes it easy for your little ones to fit on and grow with the bike. A Custom SR Suntour XCT fork features 70mm of smooth, air-sprung travel for rough terrain, while a hydraulic lockout will make climbing significantly easier for your little ripper. Watch them fly up hills with the Shimano XT drivetrain and stay safe on the way back down thanks to the Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes, which are easy for little hands to reach and deliver a degree of stopping power that even you'll be jealous of. Ultra-wide 2.8-inch tires, wrapped around zippy 24-inch aluminum wheels, deliver heaps of traction, comfort, and stability, and ensure that the Riprock is approved for fun anywhere that it goes.
