Rocky Mountain Sherpa

Rocky Mountain Sherpa
This item is currently not available.


Here it is, the bike designed to carry you and your gear to the ends of the earth, far from the nearest Strava segment, and through whatever ambitious backcountry route you didn't know you were planning. Sounds fun because it is! Rocky Mountain's Sherpa is a true overland bikepacking machine. Bikepacking has been around for a while, but Rocky Mountain wanted a bike that would let you get a little more rowdy, even when loaded down for multi-day self-supported adventures. For the kind of varied terrain you'll want to explore with the Sherpa, low pressure, high volume 27.5+ WTB 2.8-inch tires produce game-changing traction, stability, and lo-fi cush. Rocky Mountain began with their proven Element carbon front triangle and designed a wider rear triangle to ensure front derailleur clearance with even the widest 27.5+ tires. Manitou handles the squish with a 120mm Magnum fork and a McLeod shock cycling 95mm of SmoothLink rear action. Your horizon-reeling power is channeled through Race Face cranks tugging Shimano bits, and it's hauled down by Shimano discs. Race Face is the trusted partner for the bar, stem, and post. From bushwhacking in Idaho, to traversing military trails in the Dolomites, to racing the Colorado Trail, to traveling long forgotten game trails in the Himalayas—the Sherpa is made for anyone whose adventures regularly require a GPS beacon.
