Rocky Mountain Element Carbon Frameset

Something like a trail bike blended with a cross-country bike, the Rocky Mountain Element is one of our favorite bikes for high-speed cross-country riding. Its lightweight design and slack geometry combine to give us a singletrack slayer that performs all over the mountain. This year the Rocky Mountain Element received many updates, including a revised frame profile and an upgraded bearing and pivot construction, making for a more durable and reliable design. 120mm of Smoothlink suspension rides high in its travel for enhanced pedaling characteristics and the 29-inch wheels help maintain our speed through chunky sections. Size-specific tunes provide all sized frames the same optimal performance, and revised suspension kinematics give us a bike that rides high in its travel and has a smoother middle and end stroke for a more composed ride. Rocky Mountain's Ride-4 adjustment system gives us four different settings that allow us to adjust our frame geometry to our riding style and the terrain for more capability. The Element has exceptionally slack frame geometry for a cross-country bike and sports a 65.5-degree headtube angle in the neutral setting to give us enhanced capability and confidence on the most aggressive XC courses. The long reach and wheelbase also help keep us composed in steep, aggressive terrain, and the 76.5-degree seat tube angle makes for a very efficient pedaling position for climbing. Finishing off the Element is a SRAM UDH compatible derailleur hanger for easy replacements, integrated downtube and chainstay protector to keep our frame protected, and two water bottle mounts so we can stay hydrated.

*Due to a high demand in the global supply chain and bike industry since the start of the pandemic, material weight and exact components are subject to change. We are working diligently to keep tech specs updated, and any adjustments will be of equal or better spec level, If you have any questions, reach out to a Gearhead by chatting online or calling 1-888-276-7130.
