Rocky Mountain Element 930 - 2013

Rocky Mountain Element 930


Rocky Mountain's Element 930 is built to go fast with a FORM custom hydroformed aluminum frame. A RockShox Recon fork up front throws down 100mm-travel and a RockShox Monarch shock out back delivers 95mm of travel through Rocky's efficient SmoothLink rear end. Together they provide trail-taming control for efficient speed over roots, rocks, and chunder. In the components department, a Shimano/FSA drivetrain and Elixir discs deliver solid shifting and braking. And, the 29-inch Wheeltech wheels spin easily while Continental tires hold firm so you can climb the steeps and rail the corners.

Rocky Mountain's FORM tubing pushes the limits of tube and frame design to create their unique riding feel. Every detail of the FORM frame-tube design has a purpose, from the outer shape and profile, to the wall thickness, tapers, flares and bends. This attention to detail, paired with premium materials and manufacturing processes, allows Rocky Mountain to push the boundaries of bicycle design.

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.
