First Ride: Rocky Mountain's 2024 Altitude Has a Completely Revised Frame Design
@MarcusBrody: Given that the Slayer already features lots of progression in the rate curve, we haven't felt the need to explore the use of progressive coils.

@AverageAdventurer: All sizes spec 40mm stems, 35mm clamp bars, 4-degree upsweep (yep, typo, thanks for catching that, we'll fix it!). All alloy and carbon models are UDH compatible!

First Ride: Rocky Mountain's 2024 Altitude Has a Completely Revised Frame Design
@iduckett: A fair amount of work went into the kinematics and frame design, with test frames manufactured in our Vancouver R&D center and ridden extensively before final design work was completed. Lumping bikes into a simple category like Horst, VPP, SP, HP, etc grossly oversimplifies the amount of details that we and (I assume) most brands put into their designs. A few mm here and there make huge differences in the end result. Our advantages are that we offer multiple adjustments at the shock mounts to adjust the geometry and wheel sizing, whereas others brands do not. Additionally the kinematic aspects that we focused on were to increase our mid-travel support while not moving away from our progressive rate curves that we love to ride. Our suspension tends to feature a wider window of setup range making it easier to set up the bike to individual preferences. No chasing a narrow setup window that makes it frustrating for both first-time and experienced riders.

You can see how it works in more detail on bikes.com, but YES, the bearings are seriously oversized. They've been through the wringer and are super smooth, even after a full PNW winter or riding.

@dariodigiulio: Thanks for confirming Dario! We made sure to prioritize this on all frame sizes. On a size large, the max insertion depth is 290mm, tons of room!

With LC2R, it's a bit different than Smoothlink. Position 4 is steep, position 1 is slack. You can see the details (and how the geo changes) on the product page on bikes.com

Thanks! That would be TJP in the North Van office — he crushed this bombproof design!

LC2R™ is our unique take on a virtual pivot suspension design, with several key advantages unique to our design. Riders who ride a Rocky Mountain know that our bikes have a ride feel that’s uniquely Rocky Mountain — and the new Altitude is no different. They may have some similarities, but we think LC2R™ is a cut above! Dig in deeper and you'll see how the Altitude is different!

We’ve taken everything we loved about the race-proven and award-winning Altitude, and cranked it up to 11. The LC2R™ design provides more support with a more linear rate curve — so more lively, and more better. One of the main goals was lowering that center of gravity, and this design was the way to go. Dig in a bit deeper and you'll see that our unique take on a virtual pivot design is actually different!
