A few weeks ago, the new Rockrider Race 900 was officially presented, a lightweight and modern hardtail mountain bike developed by Decathlon, which the Rockrider Racing Team is using for the first time at the Albstadt World Cup. Here we can see its set-up in detail.

The Rockrider Racing Team's Race 900 at the Albstadt World Cup in detail

Although we say that this model is making its debut in this World Cup, the truth is that we saw it here last year riding under the feet of Lucas Dubau. At that time it was a prototype from which this new Race 900 was born.

The selection of components is somewhat more original than what we are used to in the World Cup.
Manitou R7 Pro 120 mm fork with distinctive silver-plated crown and rear fork bridge
The rear arch allows a very effective mudguard to be fitted due to its rearward position.
Van Rysel carbon bottle cage, only 25g
Complete SRAM XX1 AXS groupset in the drivetrain
Mavic Crossmax SL Ultimate wheels, available in 25 or 30 mm internal widths
Detail of Manitou thru axle lock with Hexlock SL system
TRP Slate brakes customised in the same colour as the frame
The aesthetics of the new Race 900 are impressive
Bike Yoke Divine SL Dropper Seat Post
Hutchinson tyre prototype
This frame shape is designed to carry a spare inner tube attached with tape or Velcro.
The brake reservoirs have also been painted in the same colour as the frame.
Protaper Hyperlite carbon handlebars 
Fizik Versus Evo R3 Adaptive saddle
Look X-Track Carbon pedals with titanium spindle
Lightweight, modern and very original
