Description

The trail can be a pretty intimidating place at first. Intimidating, that is, until you find the right bike to start ripping on. Specialized's Women's Rockhopper 29 — the perfect ride for you to find your confidence on the trail.

It starts with an A1 Aluminum frame that has optimized tube shapes which save weight while dramatically improving aesthetics. To go along with these clean new lines, the Rockhopper also has internal cable routing to further clean up the frame. Lastly, Specialized's Sport XC 29 geometry adjusts the reach, angles, and standover height to make for an improved fit across the size range. This is sure to keep you ripping and confident while heading both up and down the trail.

This Rockhopper comes with a build spec that places an emphasis on reliability. This means that it features a full Shimano drivetrain, no-fuss mechanical disc brakes, grippy Ground Control Sport tires that add traction over any trail, and an SR Suntour XCT 29 fork with a custom Multi-Circuit damping that eliminates the "pogo" feel commonly associated with coil forks. You'll also find that Specialized paid special attention to the needs of female riders, which is why every width and length of the components is tailored to women, while the Body Geometry Myth Sport saddle is sure to deliver comfort, mile after mile along the trail.

- The frame is constructed from lightweight A1 Aluminum in order to provide a compliant, durable platform to support the acclaimed Women's XC Sport 29 Geometry. Combined, you get a bike that's more than efficient on climbs and descends with equal aplomb.

- Custom SR Suntour XCT fork features 80/90/100mm (size-specific) of coil-sprung suspension travel that swings well above its weight class.

- The Shimano rear derailleur is built with durability in mind, so you can rest assured that you'll have a reliable shifting partner for the long trails ahead.

Great job by Specialized realizing that girls are different than guys. My wife loves this bike. The bike fits her much better than a small guys bike. plus it looks way cooler than the old girly bikes that just weld the top tube at a steep angle. The front shocks are adjustable and have a lockout feature so they can handle some serious trails. They will last a long time too considering she wieght 75Lbs less than I do. Plus, she looks really cool on the trails and gets compliments from random people all the time.
