They might already be publicly testing an even newer version of their XC full-suspension race bike, but the original Rockrider 900S we spotted on the UCI circuit in 2022 is now on sale at Decathlon.

For $5,999, you get a full carbon fiber frame with a single-pivot, linkage-driven suspension. The rear triangle skips any extra pivots, relying on flattened seatstays to flex a bit, keeping it tight and light.

The spec is different than what their sponsored racers are using, but there are a couple items that carry over. The 120mm travel frame is the same and has a claimed 1,980g weight.

You’ll share the Hutchinson Kraken Racing Lab 29×2.3 tires, although their riders might be rolling on lighter prototypes at any given event. Interestingly, they spec a reinforced Hardskin model on the back of the bike, with a 100g lighter, more supple standard tire on the front.

And you’ll get SRAM AXS, too, but down-spec’d to GX AXS with Truvativ Stylo 6K alloy cranks. They spec 170mm cranks on S/M and 175mm on L/XL frames. Brakes are SRAM Level T with 180/160mm rotors.

The suspension, wheels, and cockpit are all different. Stock bikes come with a Rockshox Reba RL 120mm fork and SIDluxe Select+ rear shock. Both are controlled by a Twist Lock remote lockout.

Wheels are Reynolds TR309/289 XC combo. They’re carbon and hookless with a 30mm internal width for the front, and 28mm on the rear. It’s another interesting mix of spec from front to rear, with the likely goal being increased traction up front and a slightly lighter, faster wheel on the back.

It comes with a house-brand alloy bar and stem and a carbon seatpost. The Fizik Argo Vento saddles are shorter 350mm lengths on S/M bikes, and longer 400mm sizes on L/XL. It’s routed for stealth dropper seatposts, but you’ll have to add your own.

Complete bike weights are listed as 25.8-26.5lbs without pedals but with inner tubes. Go tubeless and you’ll drop about 200g off each bike.

Available now, even in the US.

6 grand for Reba, GX, and no dropper? That doesn’t seem like a good value proposition, which is what I thought Decathlon was all about?

couldn’t agree more. $6K for that does not seem like a bargain at all. And are 2023+ bikes really going to have the option to use the old AXS? 2022 should be the last year of those I thought.

lol what does metal cranks have to do with anything. plenty of premium alloy cranks out there (which to be fair these aren’t)
