Light to float up climbs, stiff to rail corners, and burly to keep it pinned, Rocky Mountain's Altitude 799 MSL is the one bike for all-mountain supremacy. Built from Smoothwall carbon around Rocky's Ride-9 adjustable geometry, the Altitude can be dialed to your style and/or terrain. Discover new lines on your favorite singletrack with the 150mm of SmoothLink rear suspension and a Fox 34 fork with 160mm of trail-devouring travel, both with buttery-smooth Kashima coating. Hammer up climbs with the wide range Shimano XTR drivetrain spun by brilliant Race Face Next SL carbon cranks, then descend with confidence on the wide Race Face carbon bar and stubby stem. Finished with stout 27.5-inch Reynolds carbon wheels, a dialed Maxxis Minion/Ardent tire set up, a Reverb dropper post, and unparalleled XTR discs, this is the machine to take your skills to a whole new altitude.
|Rocky Mountain's Smoothwall Carbon construction creates a frame that is just as perfect on the inside as the outside. Rocky Mountain uses an inner mold to reduce excess resin, fibers and filler to create a super high fiber-to resin ratio. The result is an incredibly lightweight, stiff and responsive ride with incredible strength.|
Rocky Mountain's Angular Bushing Concept (ABC) pivots consist of an angular contact bushing (yellow) which rotates on a tapered alloy pivot. Carefully controlled tolerances eliminate binding on the pivot for smooth suspension movement. And, they are extra light and increase rear end stiffness by eliminating play.
Rocky Mountain's Ride-9 system enables you to customize the geometry and rear suspension rate with two interlocking inserts that allow for nine different positions.
By moving the shock forward, the geometry slackens and the suspension rate becomes more progressive, giving a nice ramp up for bottomless-feeling travel (image above, dotted line). It’s ideal for aggressive downhill riding. When you move the shock backwards, the geometry becomes quicker and the suspension more supple (blue line), which is great for ripping around technical singletrack and increasing climbing traction.
When you move the shock upwards (solid black) it allows lighter riders to run shocks at higher pressures, and moving the shock downwards (red line) allows a heavier rider to run lower shock pressures. So no matter what you weigh, this allows you to run the rear shock in the sweet spot with correct sag for smooth, consistent suspension.
