Big rides are big fun in the right company, and the Rockhopper Comp 2X is up for any adventure. The 18-speed Shimano drivetrain lets you climb strong deep into the day, and the A1 alloy frameset’s smooth, comfortable ride keeps you feeling fresh and ready for anything.
Settle in for any climb with the Shimano Altus 18-speed drivetrain, with two chainrings and a wide-range cassette for the perfect gear on any terrain. Ergonomic Rapidfire Plus™ trigger shifters offer precise gear changes without changing your grip compromising control.
We chose different front and rear tires optimized around each wheel’s purpose. The front Ground Control Sport tire’s aggressive side knobs offer grippy cornering bite in varied conditions. The low center tread on the Fast Trak rear provides efficient power transfer.
From materials to construction, we never stop improving our frames. Our obsessive engineers went over every inch of the A1 alloy frame to optimize tube shapes for durability, light weight, and smooth ride quality. Then we added internal cable routing for a clean look and easier cleaning and maintenance.
The Sport XC 29 Geometry is the secret sauce of the Rockhopper Comp 2X. The long reach and steeper seat angle puts you in a stable, efficient position on the bike for climbing and descending. We keep the chainstays and wheelbase tight for nimble, efficient handling in tight terrain.
When it comes to power and control, nothing beats a pair of hydraulic disc brakes, so we picked Shimano’s superb MT200 system, with dual-piston calipers. The excellent modulation lets you carefully apply just the right amount of braking force with minimal effort at the lever.
The frame is the single most important factor in a bike's ride quality. While there are many other components involved,
the frame is what ties it all together and ultimately determines how well a bike rides. Specialized makes the highest quality, most sorted frame on the market. The fit and finish is excellent and they ride amazing.
