The 2024 Rocky Mountain Element Carbon 30 Shimano stands as a testament to the brand's commitment to delivering high-performance mountain bikes that cater to the demands of both seasoned riders and newcomers to the trail. At the heart of this formidable machine is the SMOOTHWALL carbon frame, a hallmark of Rocky Mountain's dedication to crafting frames that balance strength, durability, and weight. The SMOOTHWALL carbon technology is designed to optimize the carbon fiber layup, resulting in a frame that strikes a harmonious equilibrium between rigidity and compliance. This not only enhances the bike's overall responsiveness but also contributes to a smoother and more controlled ride over varying terrains.

One standout feature of the Rocky Mountain Element Carbon 30 is the RIDE-4 Adjustable Geometry. This innovative design allows riders to fine-tune the bike's geometry to suit their preferences and the specific demands of the trail. The ability to make adjustments to the geometry empowers riders to optimize their riding experience, whether they prefer a more aggressive stance for downhill descents or a more upright position for efficient climbing. This adaptability ensures that the Element Carbon 30 can cater to a wide range of riding styles and preferences, making it a versatile choice for riders with diverse needs.

The drivetrain of the Element Carbon 30 is equipped with the reliable and performance-oriented Shimano SLX/deore components. Shimano's drivetrain technology is renowned for its precision, smooth shifting, and durability, making it a fitting choice for a high-caliber mountain bike like the Element Carbon 30. The inclusion of SLX/deore components ensures that riders can confidently tackle challenging trails with the assurance that their bike's drivetrain can withstand the rigors of aggressive off-road riding.

The front suspension is handled by the Marzocchi Z2 Float EVOL Rail, a 130mm fork that provides a plush and responsive feel on the trail. Marzocchi, with its rich heritage in mountain biking, brings a wealth of expertise to the Element Carbon 30, contributing to a fork that delivers a balanced combination of travel, damping, and stiffness. This fork is designed to absorb impacts and maintain traction, enhancing the bike's overall handling and control.

Complementing the front suspension is the Fox Float DPS Performance rear shock, providing 120mm of travel. The Fox Float DPS Performance is renowned for its efficiency and ability to smooth out rough terrain, ensuring that riders maintain control and comfort even when the trail gets demanding. The combination of Marzocchi and Fox suspension components creates a harmonious suspension system that enhances the overall trail performance of the Element Carbon 30.

The wheelset on the Element Carbon 30 is a WTB ST Light i27 TCS 2.0 Tubeless setup. This wheelset strikes a balance between strength and weight, contributing to the bike's agility and responsiveness. The Tubeless Ready design allows riders to experience the benefits of running lower tire pressures for increased traction without the risk of pinch flats. This feature is particularly advantageous when navigating challenging terrain, providing riders with the confidence to push their limits.

Shimano Deore 2-piston brakes adorn the Element Carbon 30, ensuring reliable stopping power in a variety of conditions. The Deore brakes are known for their consistent performance and modulation, allowing riders to finely control their speed with confidence. The two-piston design strikes a balance between power and precision, providing the necessary stopping force without sacrificing control on technical descents.

Maxxis Rekon 2.4 WT EXO tires are mounted on the Element Carbon 30, both front and rear. The choice of Maxxis tires reflects the bike's commitment to traction, durability, and versatility. The 2.4-inch width, coupled with the Wide Trail (WT) designation, ensures ample grip and stability, especially in loose and technical terrain. The EXO casing adds an extra layer of durability to withstand punctures and abrasions, contributing to the overall reliability of the bike on the trail.

Completing the package is the WTB Volt 142 Saddle, providing a comfortable perch for long rides. The WTB Volt saddle is known for its supportive design, striking a balance between comfort and performance. Its 142mm width caters to a variety of rider anatomies, ensuring that a broad spectrum of riders can find a comfortable and efficient riding position on the Element Carbon 30.

In summary, the 2024 Rocky Mountain Element Carbon 30 Shimano is a meticulously crafted mountain bike that combines advanced technology, high-quality components, and thoughtful design to deliver a ride that excels in various trail conditions. Whether you're tackling technical descents, powering through climbs, or navigating tight switchbacks, the Element Carbon 30 is poised to provide a thrilling and capable ride.
