Expirience with the Rockrider 500 S

Rockrider 500 S Review With his 120 mm trail on the fork, the Rockrider Fully is ready to roll when using it as a on long tours with lots of trails. With 12,4 kg, the Rockrider Fully counts towards the lighter bikes in this price range. The competitors are sometimes heavier. We have checked all geometry measures and come to the following conclusion: the Rockrider Downcountry-Bike is a very balanced customer. The seating position of the tours with lots of high meters moves in a moderate range between sporty and comfortable. On the downhill, however, the Rockrider Downcountry-Bike is left in the dust by its competitors. With the shifting components, Rockrider fulfills not only the current standard, but even puts the icing on the cake with its extremely high-quality components.
