Technical information

CHOOSING YOUR MTB SIZE

Several sizes available:

S: 1.50 m to 1.64 m
M: 1.65 m to 1.74 m
L: 1.75 m to 1.84 m
XL: 1.85 m to 2.00 m.
To fit the bike to your height and weight, try these tips:
1/ Sitting on the saddle, you should be able to touch the ground with the tips of your toes.
2/ To adjust the saddle height, your knee should be slightly flexed with your foot on the pedal in the lowest position.
3/ If you're trying to decide between two sizes, choose the larger size.

UNISEX FRAME

With a heavily sloped top tube and a wide range of sizes (from S: 1.50 m to XL: 2.00 m).

The ST 520 mountain bike frame is UNISEX.

The ST 520 mountain bike is available with the same frame in a WOMEN'S version: fitted seat, narrower handlebar, shorter stem, fork with a more flexible spring, and brake levers that are closer together.

As a WOMAN, if you choose the MEN'S model, we recommend at least purchasing the WOMEN'S SPORT 500 saddle which is fitted to the female form.

A WORD FROM THE TEAM

The ST 520 mountain bike was fully designed and developed by our passionate MTB team at the B'Twin Village in France (Lille).

Mountain bikers we talked to expressed their need for control so they can take more risks and continue to improve their technical skills. With that as a starting point, we designed and tested the ST 520 mountain bike, involving MTB riders at every stage.

A LIGHT, COMFORTABLE FRAME

Our designers created a frame that's easy to get onto.

The CGF frame (Comfort Geometry Frame) EVO is made of 100% aluminium for greater comfort. Its slope was carefully designed to keep your back straighter.

FRONT SUSPENSION

The 80 mm front suspension helps you get started with overcoming obstacles on slightly uneven trails easily.

Easily adjust the hardness using U-Fit technology (weight adjuster). Simply set the number to your weight using the dial on the fork.

REAR SUSPENSION: NONE

This mountain bike has no rear suspension. It is a "semi-stiff" mountain bike: perfect for beginners getting started with their first mountain bike rides. Compared to a full suspension mountain bike (with rear suspension), it has the following advantages: the bike is lighter; you can pedal faster on flatter ground.

DERAILLEUR & DRIVETRAIN:

3 x 8 speeds, 24 speeds total!
2 shifters on the handlebar.
Left (chainrings): control ascents/descents.
Right (speeds): more precise control over your pedalling.

In detail:
-ROCKRIDER FC ATB 500 triple chainring - 22/32/42 teeth
-SHIMANO ALTUS front derailleur
-MICROSHIFT RD-M46-L rear derailleur
-MICROSHIFT TS39 shifters
-SHIMANO 8-speed cassette (11-32 teeth)
-KMC Z7 wide and sturdy chain

HANDLEBAR, STEM, GRIPS

The adjustable stem on the ST 520 S allows you to position the levers so they're easy to grip. The all-aluminium ROCKRIDER stem is 70 mm (size S), 80 mm (size M/L), or 90 mm (size XL) and can be raised in 5 adjustment intervals: + 0 mm, + 7.5 mm, + 15 mm, + 22.5 mm, + 30 mm.
In detail:
- 680 mm oversize ROCKRIDER SPORT aluminium handlebar
- ROCKRIDER SPORT "soft touch" ergonomic grips for good grip and a comfortable feel.

SADDLE

The ST 520 saddle is welded to prevent any saddle movement as you cycle.

Because your comfort is our top priority after your safety, we've added an exclusive Rockrider Ergofit saddle that is wider and hammock shaped.

Easily adjust the height of your saddle with the Flex steel seat post (either 350 mm or 400 mm long, depending according to the bike size). Its reduced diameter (27.2 mm) provides your seat with natural flexibility, 30% more than a standard solution.

MECHANICAL DISC BRAKES

The Tektro TKD 68 160 mm double disc brakes provide powerful, progressive braking at the front and rear. The aluminium Tektro brake levers are light, precise, and easy to hold. You can brake with just two fingers.

We recommend that you have your brakes checked at least once a year.

27.5" WHEELS & TYRES FOR DRY TERRAIN

The 27.5" wheels of the ST 520 are tolerant and sturdy, with 19 mm double-walled rims with 28 spokes. Fearlessly get started with riding over obstacles, small rocks, roots, holes and bumps!
Because your first rides will be on dry terrain, the DRY 27.5 x 2.0 tyres are the most suitable. They have higher performance thanks to a smooth and fast central section, whilst the side lugs provide good grip on turns.

PLATFORM PEDALS

The Rockrider ST 520 mountain bike comes with flat mountain bike pedals made from hard resin for lighter weight and greater safety.
If your feet can slide off the pedals when needed, there's less risk of injury.

The pedals on the ST 520 are compatible with toe clips.

TRANSPORT & STORAGE

We added a quick release system for easily removing/reattaching the front wheel.
Tip: a bike rack is an easy way to transport your mountain bike without dirtying your car.

ACCESSORIES

Your ST 520 mountain bike is supplied with a bell, lights, wheel reflectors and pedals.

The frame is compatible with:
- Front and rear mudguards
- Stand
- Bottle cage
- Saddle bag
- Rear pannier rack
- Child seat
etc.
