Expert Review

If your young shredder is equipped with the talent and gleam in his eye for more, look to the Specialized Hotrock to take him there. The A1 Premium aluminum frame is constructed with double-butted top and down tubes for more stiffness and less weight while a Suntour XCT-JR crankset powers the bike and comes with a chainguard. The Hotrock’s drivetrain is made of a SRAM X3 rear derailleur and Shimano MegaRange 7-speed cassette with a 14-34 span for plenty of gear choices to match ability to terrain.

Up front, the 50mm-travel Suntour fork provides control in the bumps and reliable off-road performance wherever the winding path ahead may lead. The double wall aluminum rims roll easily and offer increased strength while remaining light, and the easily operated Tektro brake levers offer powerful speed control. Round off the package with the Specialized Henge saddle and soft grips, this bike is primed for action. Hotrock models range from the 12 Coaster to Hotrock 24 XC Pro in both boys and girls frames.Rating: 4.75/5
