EUROBIKE AWARD

EUROBIKE AWARD

At 1996g, the 2013 Rocky Mountain Element 999 RSL has one of the lightest frames in the industry and is a leader in frame stiffness. This stiffness comes partly from RMB’s patent pending ABC™ pivot system, which utilises angular contact bushings instead of bearings. This system is twice as stiff, 40% more durable, and 120g lighter than sealed bearing systems. RMB’s proprietary SmoothWall™ carbon construction ensures the highest density of carbon sheets, making an extremely light yet durable frame. RMB’s patented SmoothLink™ suspension system is the most pedal neutral on the market. RMB’s technologies result in the ultimate XC race bike.
