Design and technology
A short pedal from the Mount Seymour trailhead, Rocky Mountain’s Development Center is nestled at the foot of Vancouver’s North Shore Mountains.
It’s here that our engineers take full advantage of our prototype frame shop and testing facility to develop our world renowned bikes. This facility and our proximity to some of the world’s most rugged and versatile terrain provides us with a very short product feedback loop - an idea can be born over an early coffee meeting, computer modeled throughout the day, and come out of the CNC machine in time to hit the trails by dusk.
We build the drive to fit the bike, not the other way around. For ten years, our engineers dreamed, created, tested and meticulously improved upon Dyname until they got it right.
Technologies, design, and innovation
RIDE-9™ adjustment system
The RIDE-9 adjustment system allows riders to quickly fine-tune their geometry and suspension with a pair of Allen keys. Nine configurations are possible thanks to two interlocking chips.
RIDE-4™ adjustment system
The RIDE-4 adjustment system allows riders to quickly fine-tune their geometry with a pair of Allen keys. Four configurations are possible thanks to one rotating chip.
The Altitude and Instinct frames, in both alloy and carbon, are equipped with a two-position axle dropout.
Size Specific Tune
Size Specific Tune ensures that riders of all sizes get the right balance of small-bump compliance, mid-stroke support, and end-stroke progressiveness. Our design team does custom shock tunes based on real world field testing, and adjusts each tune for specific frame sizes.
Smoothwall carbon uses one of the world’s most sophisticated carbon processes to deliver industry leading stiffness-to-weight, ride quality, and durability.
FORM™ tubesets utilize premium materials to meet our strict requirements. Each FORM™ tube that we create is engineered for its specific purpose within the frame, ensuring optimized strength, weight, and ride quality.

Each year, our graphic team gets inspired by various themes when coming up with new colour palettes. For this season, the concept stemmed from our riders' playground, the trails, which influenced our natural and down-to-earth shades.
When you install the Altitude MX Mount, you will increase the travel of your Altitude or Altitude Powerplay while also lowering the rate curve. This means you might have to increase shock pressure or go up in spring rate to achieve proper sag and ...
The Dyname 4.0 drive system is powerful, delivers high torque, and is long-lasting. That means faster climbs, punchier acceleration, and a larger, removable battery helping to ensure that you get more out of every ride.
