Features and Performance

Design and Materials

The Rockrider ST 540 boasts a sleek design that's both functional and aesthetically pleasing. The frame, made of high-quality aluminium, ensures durability while keeping the bike lightweight. This combination ensures that the bike can withstand the gnarly trails while allowing the rider to maneuver with ease.

Hydraulic Disc Brakes

When you're hammering down a singletrack, you need brakes that you can rely on. The ST 540 comes equipped with hydraulic disc brakes, providing superior stopping power in all conditions. Whether you're navigating a steep descent or coming to a sudden stop, these brakes won't let you down.

Double Chainrings

The 18-speed double chainrings system is a testament to the bike's versatility. Whether you're climbing steep hills or cruising on flat trails, the ST 540 ensures a smooth and efficient ride. The gear transitions are seamless, allowing riders to focus on the trail ahead.

27.5" Double-Walled Rims

The 27.5" double-walled rims provide the perfect balance between stability and agility. They're robust enough to handle rough trails while ensuring that the bike remains agile for those tight turns and technical sections.

In-depth Comparisons

The Rockrider ST 540 stands tall among its peers, but how does it compare to the Rockrider ST 900? Both bikes are from the same lineage, but they cater to different segments of riders.

The ST 540 is designed for those who are looking for a balance between performance and comfort. Its 80mm fork is perfect for streets and simple forest roads. The short 430mm chainstays make for playful handling, and its moderate seating position is ideal for most bikers. On the other hand, the ST 900 is for those who are looking for a more aggressive ride. It's more oriented towards professional riders who are used to tackling challenging trails.

However, one thing is clear: both bikes uphold the Rockrider legacy of delivering top-notch performance.
