Specialized Hardrock Sport Disc Mountain Bike

Specialized Hardrock Sport Disc Bike Review

An affordable, high performance mountain bike, the Specialized Hardrock Sport Disc gives you a powerful, sympathetic platform for off-roading, which comes complete with disc brakes from Avid for added control.

With an A1 premium aluminium frame and plenty of alloy components, the Specialized Hardrock Sport Disc is kept light whilst still having superior strength and stiffness. Its SR Suntour fork gives you 80mm of travel to absorb shocks and its two colour schemes give you a choice between subdued and stylish or bright and cheerful.
