 Amazing bike, climbs like a hardtail, descends like a DH bike. Has everything, i did a custom build, got it down to under 24lbs, with pedals! Almsot down to the same weight as my tiny short travel bike, but it rides even faster.

 Light weight bike for XC yet strong enough for free riding. Climbing with this bike is a breeze, given its geometry it tackles inclines more efficiently than the other full suspension bikes I have ridden (Specialized and Trek).

 Love my Rocky. However, it sure is not an uphill billy goat. Now Downhill it is very capable on all but the heavy rocky gnar. Can handle bike park jump lines very well with obvious more speed than a full DH bike. Capable of handling 2.35 tubeless tires.

Rocky Mountain Altitude 70 RSL (MSRP $4899.99) — STRAIGHT UP We’ve got your back. With a first of its kind 76-degree seat angle, you’re in a position to defy gravity at every technical uphill climb. The Straight up geometry and its bio-mechanically correct seat position allows for maximum horsepower. Not only will you get an efficient ride, it’ll save your lower back and limits pressure on your “sensitive areas”... if you catch our drift. FORM Technology The heart of a bike is its frame. The geometry, the material, the feel, and the way it reacts under the rider are the very essence of the ride. That’s why we’ve introduced FORM™ – the design and manufacturing process of our high-performance frame tubing. Our philosophy behind FORM™ tubing is to push the limits of tube and frame design to create the frame’s unique riding feel. Engineered Ride Quality : FORM™ tubing is a line of high-performance tubes designed to elevate the superior ride quality for which Rocky Mountain Bicycles are known. Innovative design: With 25 years of innovation, we continue to push the boundaries of bicycle design. FORM™ tubing is the exciting new frontier of our creativity. Attention to detail: Every detail in a FORM™ tube set is carefully engineered and has a purpose: from the slightest variations in shape, to wall thickness, tapers, flares and bends. Uncompromised quality: FORM™ tube sets are manufactured with premium materials and delivered by the best suppliers in the industry to meet Rocky Mountain’s strict requirements. CARBON Designed to maximize your ride, this frame has been created with our usual stringent FORM ™ design and prototype testing processes. We didn’t just push the envelope on tube/frame design—we tore it wide open. And if that wasn’t enough, our frames were test driven by worldclass athletes in the harshest of conditions.
