    Expirience with the Rockrider Explore 540

    Rockrider Explore 540 Review When it comes to price, Decathlon takes the knife between its teeth. The Explore 540 is calculated on the edge, but does not do without an independent frame. It is the most affordable model of the latest high-end offensive from France. With 12,85 kg weight for the complete bike, the Racebike von Rockrider joins the lighter bikes that you can buy for under under 1000 Euro. Most bikes in its class are heavier. The handling of this bike is balanced. So its pretty intuitive to control on singletrails. The seating position does not manage to be too athletic, nor too upright. It´s moderate character is likely to suite the vast majority of bikers. With the Rockrider Explore 540, the real fun starts at the peak of the mountain. Because in the downhill, the on sporty excursions is better than the competitors in this price range. Check the size chart exactly before buying: the Explore 540 sizing runs small.
