Earth. Air. Fire. Water. Ride ’em all (well, maybe not fire).

"The Rocky Mountain Element is certainly a fast bike. Second fastest on the singletrack climb, the second most efficient and the fastest descender. It not only felt like the fastest downhill but manages to do so while providing the most confidence-inspiring ride and was very comfortable being pushed hard."

The perfectly balanced advantage

It’s light. It’s stiff. It climbs. It does everything you expect a good cross country bike to do. But then, its subtly aggressive geometry and lengthened wheelbase changes the game when descending and charging fast, rough, technical sections of singletrack.

Lightweight trail dominance

With 120mm of smooth, progressive travel, the Element is in a totally different league than every cross country bike that came before it. Progressive geometry means you can not only ride more trails up and down than ever‚ÄĒthey‚Äôre now faster, too.

The comfort of competence

Soaking up aggressive sections of trail means more matches to burn as the day goes on. Ride further than ever in surprising levels of comfort. Keep cottonmouth at bay with plenty of room to carry two full-sized bottles. Ride more trails than ever‚ÄĒand do it comfortably.

"This is a new type of XC riding for me - and I'm loving it!"

It's the lightest, most agile, and capable bike I have ever ridden. It's been motivating me to go farther and faster on my favorite type of rugged backcountry rides that I used to leave my XC bike at home for. This is a new type of XC riding for me - and I'm loving it!

Félix Burke, Rocky Mountain Athlete

The Element gives me a lot of confidence when it comes to racing

"It is incredibly light and efficient but somehow rides like a trail bike, a combination that eliminates any weak points and allows to push on all sections of a race course. Outside of racing, I love the feeling of being way the hell out there! The Element is perfect for that, you can cover ground all day without holding anything back. "
