The 2022 Enduro World Series has wrapped with major wins for the Rocky Mountain Race Face and Yeti/Fox Factory teams. Jesse Melamed came in sixth place at the last stop in Loudenvielle, France over the weekend. Making him the overall champion for the season. He was in the top ten in every round, earning three first-place finishes. All with the help of his trusty riding companion, the Rocky Mountain Altitude.
Richie Rude came in seventh in the final round and second overall. He was a top-ten finisher in eight of the 10 rounds, dominating on the Yeti SB150. Remi Guavin managed to pull in 11th place. Also on the Rocky Mountain team. Rebecca Baraona was fourth in the women’s category, competing for Yeti. Nadeau Lanthier was eighth. Another Rocky Mountain rider.
Rocky Mountain Altitude is Purpose-Built and Race-Proven
No surprise that the Altitude was the winning bike for EWS 2022. As Rocky Mountain says, it’s the ultimate enduro weapon for fast sessions and demolishing steep trails. The same frame as its little brother, the Instinct, but with a different upper shock mount and a different size shock. It sports a 170mm fork and 160mm rear travel. You’re positioned directly over the front end for unyielding control. Shave off every possible second during work or play.
You can adjust the geo to your liking with the RIDE-9 system and two-position rear axle. Other features include a Shimano XT cassette with accompanying shifters, Shimano XT Trail 4 Piston breaks, a Race Face Turbine R seatpost, and Race Face AR 30 rims. Choose from seven builds, four frame sizes, and 27.5″ or 29″ wheels. Also two colorways, Grey/Pink and Green. You’re sure to find your perfect match. Then you can push your limits and get better ride after ride.
Yeti SB150 is a Race Bred Superbike for Fast Descents
The SB150 has won more races stages it has started than any other EWS race bike in history. Nine first-place wins over the last four years. This is a long, agressive enduro trail model for the most thrilling rides ever. The Switch Infinity suspension provides the most efficient pedaling platform for trekking up and down hills. You get 170mm front and 150mm rear travel, and obstacle-crushing 29″ wheels.
The low stack height and steep seat tube angle keep you in the most comfortable position for your climbs. While the geo gives you a stable, planted ride though corners. The SRAM code RSC brakes are incredibly responsive for the best stopping power. Cables are also routed through the frame, so no rattling on the trails. Five kits, plus frame-only, in three bold colors. Like the famous Yeti turquoise. There’s no stopping you on this bike, so gear up for your best performances yet.
