The new Specialized Rockhopper Elite is one helluva lot of bike. Air-sprung fork? Let us 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? Specialized certainly 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.’

Size Specific Geometry

A heart of gold, each new Rockhopper is built around a lightweight yet durable Premium A1 Aluminum frameset featuring butted aluminium 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 and Specialized has 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.

Secure Delivery

For security purposes, we regrettably can no longer ship to forwarding centres, PO Boxes and locker boxes. For some items such as bikes and electric scooters, these can only be delivered to the billing address, no change of address or in-transit redirection is permitted for any consignments.

Easy Returns

If an item doesn't fit, or isn't quite what you expected then simply fill out the enclosed returns form and return your unwanted items to us within 28 days for a full refund, we'll accept orders returned to us after this period with refunds made via gift vouchers for use against future orders. Unfortunately, we're unable to cover the costs of returning items to us.

For further information please see our Refund Policy for further details.

Bike Delivery

Unfortunately we only have a contract to ship large consignments to MAINLAND UK addresses, if you live in the Highlands or on an offshore Isle please get in touch prior to purchasing as we can arrange for an ad hoc collection with Parcelforce for a fee - see details at the bottom of this section for details.

We aim to have all the bikes we stock pre-built and available for immediate purchase online and for in-store collection, once you have ordered a bike from us one of our fully trained Cytech mechanics will package your bike into one of our custom built boxes.

These extra-large boxes allow us to ship most bikes almost fully assembled but before we do so our mechanics will carry out a PDI (pre-delivery inspection) on the bike to ensure that before it's prepared for shipping everything is set up correctly, e.g. brakes, gear indexing etc.

Upon receiving your bike, you will simply need to take your new bike out of the box, turn and tighten the handlebars and fit one of the pedal (if your bike comes with pedals). In some instances, such as for road bikes, you may also need to attach the handlebars as they're too wide to simply be rotated so they'll be secured to the side of the frame with zip ties.

If you live outside of MAINLAND UK or in any of the postcodes listed below we can most likely still ship a bike to you but please get in touch as the surcharges we're billed by the courier vary from location to location.

Postcodes: AB, FK, HS, IV, KA, KW, PA, PH, ZE, IM, BT and GU, JE.
