Specialized (United States) - Press Release: Ride Fearlessly.
Freedom is the absence of fear. And riding fearlessly requires a bike that can handle your kid’s imagination. It’s why we designed Riprock to be a mountain bike focused on all the features needed for superior ripping.
Built to Ride Their World:
We designed Riprock to be a mountain bike from the very beginning. This meant focusing on all the features like modern geometry, Ground Control tires, hydraulic disc brakes, and internally routed cables. Finally, we threw in a wider-range drivetrain, making Riprock truly the perfect bike to inspire riders to climb higher and tackle the downhills freely.
The Fit to Ride Fearlessly:
Kids can’t ride confidently if they’re not riding comfortably. With Riprock, fit comes first. This meant using data to reimagine everything from how they grip to how they sit to create a bike specifically and proportionally for kids.
Riprock features narrower diameter grips for better handling, maneuvering, and control.
We created a 130mm Bridge saddle and a narrower Q-factor to offer improved alignment between the hip, knee, and ankle, reducing the chances of injuries and pain while boosting pedal power.
