Welcome To Your Element
Since the 90s, the Element has gapped the pack in delivering a game-changing XC riding rig. That hasn’t changed. Purpose-built to hit the precise sweet spot between lightweight cross country climbing prowess and technical precision, the Element is the best of both worlds and more. New-levels of climbing efficiency guarantee that oh-so-sweet feeling of riding someone off your wheel. Added levels of stability on fast descents and a pseudo-aggressive seat tube angle provides surprising levels of confidence on tight single track and hairy descents.
Carbon That’s Better
Smoothwall carbon uses one of the world’s most sophisticated carbon processes to deliver industry-leading stiffness-to-weight, ride quality, and durability. Rocky eliminate excess resin and fibres by using rigid internal moulds instead of traditional air bladders. Then utilizing different types of carbon in specific frame areas to maximize stiffness and impact resistance while minimizing overall weight.
Smoothlink is just… smoother
Smoothlink suspension is efficient yet supple when you’re on the pedals and across a wide range of gears. It features a controlled end-stroke and a rate-curve that feels more capable than the travel would suggest. This four-bar suspension design philosophy is centred on ride characteristics; each bike platform we develop balances variables like anti-squat, axle path, chain growth, rate curve, anti-rise, etc. to achieve the legendary Rocky Mountain ride feel.
The RIDE-4 adjustment system allows you to quickly fine-tune your geometry with a pair of Allen keys. Four configurations are possible thanks to one rotating chip. This allows for subtle geometry changes with minimal effect on your shock tune. When adjusting the RIDE-4 position, make gradual, incremental changes, take notes, and be methodical. Don’t adjust in a hurry before a big ride. Take your time and enjoy the process.
Bottle Clearance And Mount Options
Plenty of frame room for two bottles ensures you’ll be able to keep the pace hot all day long. The lower bottle mounts have two positions, giving you the option to mount the lower bottle closer or further from your hand depending on your chosen configuration
