A WORD FROM THE TEAM
Entirely designed and developed in France at the B’Twin Village (Lille).
The Rockrider team designed and tested this XC 900 S 29″ mountain bike with the involvement of XC mountain bikers like our technical partner and professional mountain bike racer: Milton Ramos, winner of many XCM races around the world.
To better satisfy your needs, we assembled the Rockrider XC 900 S 29″ at our own factory in Lille, just steps away from the bike design team.

Men’s or women’s mountain bike? This Rockrider XC 900 S 29″ is unisex.
