Schwinn Rocket 27.5 Hardtail

0/5 (0 Reviews)
MSRP : $750.00


Product Description

Rocket 2 features a double-butted aluminum frame--the same technology and material as higher-end bikes, and an SR Suntour 100mm travel fork create a fully functioning platform for off-road riding that delivers on performance, efficiency, and strength. Rocket 2's 27.5" wheel size is among mountain biking's newer innovations. Originally a 26" wheel discipline, mountain bike makers have been making 29" wheeled bikes, and more recently, 27.5" wheeled bikes. The larger wheel size surmounts obstacles more easily, has lower rolling resistance (as in, they are faster), and situates the rider closer to the wheels for a more balanced ride.

Racing Ralph vs Rocket Ron vs..... Spec Fast Trak - my experience

This is just my experience and opinion with these 29er tires, so YMMV of course, but I wanted to start this thread because people (including myself) are always debating between the Racing Ralph and Rocket Ron as a front tire for XC racing. I like them both, but have found a new favorite - the Speci ... Read More »
