THE STORY OF THE XC 500...
Entirely designed and developed in France at the B'Twin Village (Lille), this mountain bike is the fruit of the work of an expert team of passionate cross-country mountain bikers. The Rockrider team designed and tested the Rockrider 500 XC mountain bike with their mountain bike testers. For your satisfaction, the Rockrider XC 500 is assembled in our own factory in Lille, France, just a stone's throw away from our design team.

A UNISEX MOUNTAIN BIKE
Men's or women's mountain bike? The Rockrider 500 XC mountain bike is unisex. For greater comfort, the women on our mountain bike team recommend replacing the saddle with the Women's 500 Sport saddle, which is adapted to women's bodies.

Special studs to optimize steering, and sufficiently well spaced out so that they don't get clogged with mud when riding on muddy ground. High side knobs for good grip in the turns.
