Description

A lightweight full suspension XC bike, the Element was in a class of its own when Rocky Mountain introduced it in 1996. 18 years later, the Element stays true to its racing heritage as a 29er race bike platform. Whether you’re lining up at a start line or heading out the door for an after work hammerfest, the Element’s unmatched ride quality, point-and-shoot stiffness, and traction- tuned suspension will have you waiting for your buddies at the top. The 2014 Element is the fastest, best handling full-suspension XC race bike Rocky Mountain Bicycles has ever made.

FEATURES:

  • SMOOTHWALL™ CARBON: SMOOTHWALL™ carbon delivers industry leading stiffness-to-weight, ride quality, and durability.
  • RTC™ DESIGN: Every riding style demands a different set of design principles.
  • SMOOTHLINK™ SUSPENSION: SMOOTHLINK™ suspension reduces both pedal-bob and bottom-outs while allowing Rocky Mountain to fine tune for a wide range of intended uses.
  • ABC™ PIVOTS: ABC™ Pivots are lighter, stiffer, and require less maintenance than conventional bearing pivots.
  • FORM™ ALLOY: Not all aluminum tubing is created equal. FORM™ provides the superior ride quality Rocky Mountain is known for.
