Optimized for greater strength
The Hardrock is the entry into Specialized’s world of mountain biking – 650b wheels roll over obstacles, whilst grippy, knobbly tyres hold on in the muddiest of conditions. A lightweight aluminum frame, optimized for greater strength, without sacrificing on the weight side of things.
Alternatively, if you prefer a more traditional braking set up, the Hardrock 650b is also available with V-brakes. Roll along on lightweight aluminum rims, featuring double wall technology, resulting in a stronger rim.
An 80mm travel suspension fork, with preload adjustment, improves control and handling over rougher terrain whilst a Shimano triple-ring drivechain ensures smooth gear changes.
