Celebrating 40 years

Join us looking back on the stories that make up forty years of bikes.

In 1981, three friends decided to start building their own mountain bikes to handle off-road riding around Vancouver. Forty years later, a lot has changed, but the big things haven’t—a lifelong obsession with bikes, and an unrelenting desire to design and build the best mountain bikes possible.

To celebrate our 40th anniversary, we’re taking a look back at the stories, riders, friends, adventures, failures, successes, places, and bikes that brought us from way-back-when to now. As we look back, we’ll also share where we’re going. Because from unexplored trails, to design breakthroughs, to the next generation of riders—there’s so much to look forward to.

 Join us in our 40th Anniversary celebration. Send in photos of your favourite bike you’ve owned from Rocky Mountain and the stories behind them! We’re excited to share some of the stories we collect on Facebook and Instagram, as well as feature some on bikes.com.
