Launch to the front and stay there aboard Rocky Mountain's Element 90 MSL. It's crafted from C13 high modulus monocoque carbon fiber that's incredibly lightweight and remarkably stiff. A 120mm-travel, Kashima-Coated Fox 32 Float fork leads the charge, and a Fox Float shock out back delivers 120mm of SmoothLink suspension for precise control when confronted with roots, rocks, and bumpy corners. The CTD remote on the bars lets you dial in the squishy bits for climbing, traversing, and descending. No matter which way your pointed, SRAM's excellent X0 drivetrain and brakes have the quickness and power you need to make your buddies (or the competition) suffer. And it all rolls on DT Swiss' light, stiff wheels with grippy yet quick-rolling Continental tires.
|Rocky Mountain's FORM Smoothwall Carbon construction creates a frame that is just as perfect on the inside as the outside. Rocky Mountain uses an inner mold to reduce excess resin, fibers and filler to create a super high fiber-to resin ratio. The result is an incredibly lightweight, stiff and responsive ride with incredible strength.|
Rocky Mountain's Angular Bushing Concept (ABC) pivots consist of an angular contact bushing (yellow) which rotates on a tapered alloy pivot. Carefully controlled tolerances eliminate binding on the pivot for smooth suspension movement. And, they are extra light and increase rear end stiffness by eliminating play.
