Which Rockhopper wheel size is for you?
Only available in XXS, this is for the young ones that are ready to shred on a bigger bike than the traditional "kid's" bike sizes go to.
Perfect for shorter riders and those looking for a lively ride, 27.5” wheels are more maneuverable than their 29” counterparts. They accelerate fast and corner well, with their shorter wheelbase giving the bike a nimble feel. The 27.5” Specialized Rockhopper is only available in sizes XS-M, with it being recommended that taller riders opt for the larger 29” wheels.
Ideal for taller riders and for those looking to push their XC boundaries, 29” wheels offer a higher top speed and are often seen as faster than 27.5” bikes. Their larger diameter copes better with rough terrain, offering a smoother ride and allowing you to carry increased speed over rocks and roots. This comes at the sake of maneuverability, with the larger wheels requiring a little more heft in the corners and being less responsive. The 29” Specialized Rockhopper is only available in sizes M-XXL, with shorter riders being more suited to the 27.5” version.
