40% OFF SALE! BE QUICK, ALMOST SOLD OUT FOR 2014. Comes with free bike PRO fit including suspension setup for rider weight and riding style! In store MTB expert with over 20 years racing and mechanical experience.
A lightweight full suspension XC bike, the Element was in a class of its own when we introduced it in 1996. 18 years later, the Element stays true to its racing heritage as a 29er race bike platform. Whether you’re lining up at a start line or heading out the door for an after work hammerfest, the Element’s unmatched ride quality, point-and-shoot stiffness, and traction- tuned suspension will have you waiting for your buddies at the top. The 2014 Element is the fastest, best handling full-suspension XC race bike Rocky Mountain Bicycles has ever made.
“I was blown away on the first climb, both by the lightness of the carbon frame and the stellar performance of the suspension.” - Brice Minnigh, Bike Magazine
