Rocky Mountain Element 950 RSL

The Element is Rocky Mountain’s line of full suspension cross country bikes. The Element line is known for having great value rolled into exceeding performance. Rocky Mountain developed an innovative linkage system called ABC Pivot. This linkage system is lighter and stiffer than traditional sealed cartridge bearings. This is a great advantage and increases performance by eliminating binding in the pivot.

The Rocky Mountain Element 950 is constructed from FORM C13 Carbon. FORM is Rocky Mountain’s process for crating high quality materials. The Carbon Fiber is crafted to match exact design specifications. Attention to detail is crucial and Rocky Mountain has years of experience building high quality bikes. The 950 RSL also has a tapered headtube which increases stiffness and strength in the headtube.

Rocky Mountain knew that they had to outfit the Element 950 with a solid build kit. They chose the lightweight and strong Fox 32 Float 100mm CTD 29er fork. This fork is air sprung and has low friction 7000 series lightweight 32mm aluminum stanchions. The rear suspension is a Fox Float with Dual Remote. Together, the Fox 32 Float fork and Fox 32 Float rear suspension make for a smooth ride that can tackle all kinds of terrain and with the Dual Remote you can switch from Climb Trail and Descend in a snap. CTD stands for Climb, Trail, & Descend. These are all settings on FOX’s new shocks and forks. The Climb setting acts similar to a lock out. It stiffens the suspension for better climbing and power transfer. Trail is a happy medium between lock out and wide open. Descend opens the suspension up and allows use of more of the suspension.

The Rocky Mountain Element 950 is one heck of a bike. Taking advantage of the innovative ABS pivots technology and the FORM tubing process, Rocky Mountain has been able to produce a fantastic 29er cross country frame. Then, pooling from the industry, Rocky Mountain used an assortment of proven parts to build the Element. The bike is perfect for any cross country rider looking to step up their game!

Rocky Mountain History

Rocky Mountain Bicycles humbly began in the basement of a Vancouver British Columbia bike shop, in 1981. The employees first imported bikes to sell to their customers. Later, they began manufacturing and importing frames to their exact specifications. Rocky Mountain now produces mountain bikes, road bikes, and urban bicycles. The company has come quite a ways from their modest beginning; however, their core values have never wavered. Rocky Mountain Bicycles is just as sought after now as they were in 1981.
