Which is the right size?
Several sizes available:
S: between 1.50m and 1.64m
M: between 1.65 m and 1.74 m
L: between 1.75 m and 1.84 m
XL: between 1.85 m and 2.00 m
If you are between 2 sizes:
Choose the smaller size for easier steering (easier to handle) and comfort (straighter back).
Choose the larger size for easier pedalling with a more stretched-out position (position more suited to performance).
The ST 530 S MTB has a UNISEX frame.
The ST 530's frame has been carefully designed down to the smallest detail, from the top tube's relatively pronounced slope, to the wide range of sizes (M: 1.65m to XL: 2m). The ST 530 S is not only lightweight and comfortable, but UNISEX as well.
To make the most of the improved comfort, the women on the Rockrider team recommend the 500 Women's Sports saddle, which is specially designed for the female form.
A WORD FROM THE TEAM
The ST 530 S mountain bike was fully designed and developed by our passionate MTB team at the B'Twin Village in France (Lille).
A mountain bike that makes steering easier: more powerful and progressive hydraulic disc brakes, shocks and a fork with 120 mm travel for riding over obstacles, a single chainring so you can very quickly adapt to changes in terrain, etc. MTB riders were involved at every stage of this bike's creation to make sure it works just right.
A LIGHT, COMFORTABLE FRAME
For less weight and more efficient pedalling, the Rockrider ST 530 S frame is made from 6061 aluminium (only 2.7 kg in size M without suspension). Its 120mm rear shock uses a single-pivot system (more sensitive to small impacts, while remaining firm when encountering large impacts) and sealed bearings for a great lifespan.
120 MM FRONT SUSPENSION
The hydraulic fork, with 120 mm travel, allows you to easily ride over more obstacles (roots, pebbles, stones, mud).
The fork's built-in lockout system helps to prevent bobbing and loss of speed on faster terrain.
This mountain bike has a Rockrider U-Fit 120 mm spring shock absorber, specially adjusted for this frame. You can easily adjust it based on your weight, which provides you with a very good balance between sensitivity and performance.
DERAILLEUR & DRIVETRAIN: A SINGLE CHAINRING LIKE THE PROS!
The single chainring is easy and efficient to use:
1 chainring and 9 speeds.
Accelerate on the flats and easily tackle the climbs.
With a single lever on the handlebar, you can change gears while hardly thinking!
-ROCKRIDER FC ATB 500 single chainring (32T)
-MICROSHIFT ADVENT rear derailleur with medium cage
-MICROSHIFT ADVENT right shifter
-MICROSHIFT H092 9-cog cassette (11-42 T)
-KMC Z9 wide, sturdy chain
HANDLEBARS, STEM, GRIPS
The adjustable stem brings the ST 530 S controls to your hands. The all-aluminium Rockrider stem is 70 mm (size S), 80 mm (size M/L), or 90 mm (size XL) and can be raised to 5 adjustment intervals: + 0mm, + 7.5mm, + 15mm, + 22.5mm, + 30mm.
In detail: - 720mm oversize Rockrider Sport aluminium handlebar
- Rockrider Sport "soft touch" ergonomic grips for good grip and a comfortable feel.
The ST 530 S saddle is welded to prevent any saddle movement as you cycle.
Because your comfort is our next priority after safety, we've added an exclusive Rockrider Ergofit Evo saddle that is wider and hammock shaped.
Easily adjust the height of your saddle with the 400 mm long, 31.4 mm diameter seat post.
HYDRAULIC DISC BRAKES
No matter what conditions you ride in (dry/wet), the dual hydraulic disc brakes at the front and back will come through for you, even in the mud.
Hydraulic braking adds more power and progressive braking and requires less powerful use of the brake levers.
The aluminium brake levers are easy to grip and precise.
27.5" WHEELS WITH DOUBLE-WALLED RIMS AND ALL-CONDITION TYRES
The aluminium wheels are effective and sturdy: 27.5" diameter and double-walled rims. Their diameter is the perfect balance of comfort and performance. With their 28 spokes, they are lightweight, stiff, and durable.
The wide, ROCKRIDER ALL CONDITIONS (30 TPI) 27.5" x 2.0 tyres have side knobs designed for riding on all types of terrain (dry, wet, etc.).
Tubeless Ready 23 mm rims: SCHRADER valves, TUBELESS rim tape, TUBELESS tyres, and puncture-proof liquid to be added.
The ST 530 S comes with Rockrider Flat platform pedals with a wider pedalling surface and more pronounced dots for better grip on the pedals.
EASILY TRANSPORT AND STORE YOUR MOUNTAIN BIKE
We added a quick release system for easily removing/reattaching the front wheel.
Our advice: a bike rack is an easy way to transport your mountain bike without dirtying your car.
Your ST 530 S mountain bike comes with a bell, lights, wheel reflectors and pedals.
The frame is compatible with:
-Bottle cage with side opening (ref. 8548543)
-Mountain bike mudguard set (ref. 8385291)
-100 saddle bag (ref. 8347394) and 500 saddle bag (ref. 8354448)
