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.
Though the Altitude has been around for quite some time, it has been completely revamped. To start, the Altitude features the 650b/ 27.5 wheel platform, which has taken the industry by storm. The 27.5 platform is the best of both worlds. The Altitude series accelerates and is as nimble as a 26” wheel bike, yet features the extra stability and traction found on a 29” bike. Rocky Mountain poured tons of technology into the Altitude series including ABC pivots, StraightUP™ geometry, SmoothLINK™ Suspension, and Ride-9. Once you throw a leg over the Altitude you’ll never look back.
The Altitude 730 is constructed of FORM™ custom hydroformed alloy and features ABC™ pivots. ABC™ Pivots are Rocky Mountain’s patent pending Angular Bushing Concept™ pivots. ABC™ pivots are lighter, more durable, and are laterally stiffer than cartridge bearings. The Altitude 730 also features a tapered head tube for stiffness, press fit bottom bracket, and ISCG 05 tabs. The Rocky Mountain Altitude 730 features StraightUp™ geometry, which allows for efficient climbing. As the suspension sags, you are now in a powerful pedaling position of approximately 73°. This allows you to sit in the middle of your saddle with your weight over your pedals for efficient climbing. SmoothLink™ Suspension features minimal pedal feedback so you get a smoother pedal stroke. By placing the rear pivot above the rear hub axle, the average chain torque line stays parallel to the lower link, which eliminates pedal-bob. Lastly, the Rocky Mountain Altitude features the new RIDE- 9 system, which allows you to adjust the head angle from 66.6° to 68.3°, and the seat tube angle from 73.6° to 75.3° by rotating the chip at the upper shock mount.
Rocky Mountain strived to make a bike with the latest and greatest technology, utilizing the 650b/ 27.5 platform that didn’t break the bank. You’ll find high quality components at an affordable price point with the Altitude 730. Rocky Mountain chose to dress the Altitude 730 in X-Fusion and Fox suspension components. The X-Fusion Sweep RL2 Air works harmoniously with the Fox Float CTD custom race valved rear shock. The Sweep features 150mm of glorious suspension with compression, lockout, and rebound adjustment. The 15mm axle and tapered steer tube ensures the front end is rigid. The Fox CTD allows you to adjust the ride between climb, trail, and descend. SRAM X.5 trigger shifters work with the SRAM X.5 front derailleur and SRAM X.9 rear derailleur to produce 20 gears which will serve you well, no matter the terrain. Avid Elixir 3 brakes hydraulic brakes will bring your bike to stop, when you’ve had enough fun for the day. From wheel to wheel, the bike is doused in high quality components, from the SRAM 10 speed drivetrain, to the Race Face cockpit pieces, ending with the Wheeltech inferno wheels by SUNringle.
