The Element 70 MSL is the culmination of over a decade of cross-country evolution. Featuring a full carbon frame, 120mm of travel and innovative suspension bushing designs, the Element 70 is the next generation of cross-country super bike. Light on the climb, and confident on the decent, the Element 70 combines all mountain capabilities and marathon efficiency in order to create a versatile, high performance mountain machine.

Rocky Mountain’s patent pending Angular Bushing Concept™ (ABC) pivots represent a paradigm shift in high performance suspension linkage in the most literal sense. ABC ™ pivots consist of an angular contact polymer bushing which rotates on a tapered alloy pivot. By carefully controlling the tolerance of these pieces, they are able to specify a torque value on the pivot and can eliminate binding, which has been, until now, impossible. The more you tighten a typical bushing system, the more the pivot will bind. Not so with ABC™ Pivots. Furthermore, they are lighter, more durable, and laterally stiffer than a cartridge bearing. On the Element, Rocky Mountain was able to save 120 grams by switching to ABC™ pivots while increasing rear end pivot stiffness by 105 percent. Yes, you read that correctly; ABC™ pivots are 105% stiffer than a sealed cartridge bearing.

FREE PROFESSIONAL ASSEMBLY

Each Rocky Mountain complete bike includes free professional assembly by Jenson USA. Prior to shipping your bike, we will completely build and tune it, just as we would for an in-store purchase. Then, we'll partially disassemble and carefully pack your bike for shipping. Please allow 3 business days for the bike build process prior to shipment.

When your bike arrives, it will take about 30 minutes to unpack and perform basic re-assembly tasks (such as installing the front wheel and seatpost) using common hand tools. Jenson USA has created a helpful video (below) to guide you through this process. Stuck? Please call us at (888) 880-3811 and we’ll be happy to help.

      Comments about Rocky Mountain Element 70 MSL Bike '12:

      Purchased in US, use in Ecuador South America. Used twice. Still in transition from fix tail to doble suspention. First test: night MTB ride starting at 2700 meters above sea level, fast descent 600 mtrs (2100 meters), long uphill (950 mtrs) with very steep sections. Unfortunatly chaing failed in the begining of steap uphill, not happy with component, fixed it continued. Second ride, very steap uphill cobblestone road (need more stiffness in back, bounces), steap trial downhill, still learning about bike performance. Like the MTB. Sorry for my english

        Comments about Rocky Mountain Element 70 MSL Bike '12:

        Moved on from my anthem 2010 that has been through hell and back but it's time that bike took a backseat and some sedate action from a new owner. I love the extra bit of travel with the weight shaving. The bike handles supberbly and is a joy to ride eating up some of the technical stuff too. Looking forward to getting as much fun out of this bike as the Anthem and hopefully less bruises!!

        Comments about Rocky Mountain Element 70 MSL Bike '12:

        I moved on from a 2007 Rocky Mountain ETSX to this carbon masterpiece. I love it. I never felt this confident on a 120mm travel bike. I did not narrow down the handlebar so the width really helps in technical downhill sections. The bike feels light and nimble. XT components is flawless. Will replace front tire with a Kenda Nevegal for more grip in turns.
