With 29" wheels and a wide range of RIDE-9 adjustments, the Rocky Mountain Instinct is available in both carbon and alloy models. The re-designed frame pushes the rear travel to 140mm, increasing stiffness and tweaking the suspension kinematics. Despite the increase in travel, the new frame has noticeably more efficient pedaling with better small-bump sensitivity. The Instinct Carbon 70 combines a superlight and ultra-durable Smoothwall carbon frame with the Rocky Mountain suspension design that puts it well ahead of the industry curve. Fox handles damping front and rear with a 34 fork and DPS EVOL shock, ensuring that tricky line you start is the line you finish. The Instinct Carbon 70 rolls on Sun’s versatile Düroc rims wrapped in Maxxis rubber for aggressive control in any trail conditions, and they’re spurred on by a SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain with the gear range to go anywhere. You can dial back the speed just in time with powerful Shimano XT brakes and rely on Rocky Mountain and Race Face components to guide this rig through your trickiest descents and technical climbs. It’s ready for either with the flick of the remote for the Fox Transfer Performance Elite dropper post.
With the Thunderbolt Carbon 50, Rocky Mountain reveals an all-new carbon frame that pushes the rear travel to 130mm, increases stiffness, lowers the rate curve slightly, and gives the frame a host of next-generation features—but keeps its playful geometry and the wide range of RIDE-9 adjustments. The Thunderbolt is at home on technical climbs, powering through rough stuff, and popping off every trail feature you lay eyes on. Fox keeps your tires gripping the course with a DPS EVOL shock and 34 Performance fork, lightweight hardware that can damp with the heavyweights. Speed becomes a natural extension of your body as you crank up the SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, with a broad gear range that offers impressive climbing prowess and a fast top-end with minimal componentry. Maxxis DHR II tires keep you glued to the trail with race-winning traction, and Shimano SLX hydraulic brakes give you peace of mind that braking is under control so you can focus on carrying speed all the way to the finish line. The Fox Transfer dropper post gives you an edge on both ascents and descents, ensuring your body is always in the right position for the job.
The Altitude from Rocky Mountain is here to push the trail bike envelope. The ultra-stiff frame pushes 150mm of rear travel out of a Fox DPX2 shock and features RM’s RIDE-9 interlocking chip design, allowing you to easily dial-in suspension characteristics to tackle any terrain — from technical BC loam to clapped out enduro tracks, flowy New Zealand jumps, and Moab slickrock. Aim the Fox 36 fork at the gnarliest descents and wheel-sucking ruts you can find. At 160mm, it’s built for brutality while delivering Fox’s sophisticated damping to keep you on rails through the risky line. Rocky Mountain spec’d the Altitude to expand what is possible on any trail, no matter what price point fits your budget. The Carbon 50 benefits from the industry-leading stiffness-to-weight delivered by its highly refined Smoothwall carbon frame. It brings together a tremendous gear range, compliments of SRAM’s GX Eagle drivetrain, kept in check by the reliable power of Shimano SLX brakes. Maxxis tires and wide Sun Düroc rims provide a remarkable blend of trail sensitivity and gravity-savvy traction so you can find the ribbon of terra firma that thrills you, hit the dropper remote, and tear straight into the dream.
The Growler takes full advantage of high volume 27.5+ tires and next-generation trail geometry for a capable, confident ride. More traction makes short work of scrabbly climbs, more forgiveness helps hold aggressive lines, and more intuitive handling keeps the ride playful. It’s quality components, like a Suntour suspension fork, WTB tires, Shimano 1x9 drivetrain, and Shimano hydraulic brakes make the Growler 20 a care-free fun machine with versatility at its core.
The Rocky Mountain Fusion smooths out uneven terrain and has great rolling speed to keep you covering miles of off-road paths and trails. With the same intuitive front-end handling found on their 29"-wheeled World Cup XC race bikes and the added stability of a lengthened back end, the Fusion provides a responsive, comfortable ride. Features: - Suspension fork with 100mm of travel - Wide-range Shimano-controlled 1x drivetrain - Powerful Shimano hydraulic disc brakes - Grippy, yet fast-rolling Maxxis tires
