Description

The 2024 Rocky Mountain Element Carbon 50 Shimano is a high-performance mountain bike designed to tackle a variety of terrains with finesse and agility. At the heart of its construction lies the SMOOTHWALL carbon frame, a testament to Rocky Mountain's commitment to cutting-edge materials and engineering. The frame is not only lightweight but also robust, ensuring a responsive ride while maintaining durability. One of the standout features of the frame is its RIDE-4 Adjustable Geometry, providing riders with the flexibility to fine-tune their riding experience to suit different trails and preferences.

In the realm of drivetrain excellence, the Shimano XT/SLX setup ensures smooth and reliable shifting across a wide range of gears. This combination of precision and durability allows riders to confidently navigate ascents and descents alike. The integration of Shimano technology speaks to the bike's commitment to performance, making it an ideal choice for riders who demand top-tier components.

The front suspension of the 2024 Rocky Mountain Element Carbon 50 Shimano is handled by the Fox 34 Float Performance fork, boasting 130mm of travel. This fork is engineered to absorb impacts and maintain control, providing a plush and responsive feel on the trail. Complementing the front suspension is the Fox Float DPS Performance rear shock, offering 120mm of travel. Together, these components work in harmony to deliver a balanced and controlled ride, ensuring that the bike can tackle rough terrain with ease.

The DT Swiss 370 Boost 148mm 18T Star-Ratchet rear hub is a crucial component that enhances the bike's overall performance. With its Boost spacing and advanced ratchet system, the hub contributes to improved wheel stiffness and quicker engagement, translating to better power transfer and responsiveness.

The WTB ST Light i27 TCS 2.0 Tubeless wheelset adds another layer of performance to the bike. Not only do these wheels reduce overall weight, enhancing the bike's agility, but they also allow for tubeless tire setups. Tubeless tires provide several advantages, including lower rolling resistance, reduced risk of flats, and the ability to run lower tire pressures for increased traction without sacrificing control.

Shimano SLX 2-piston brakes are responsible for bringing the 2024 Rocky Mountain Element Carbon 50 Shimano to a controlled stop. Known for their reliable stopping power and modulation, these brakes instill confidence in riders, especially in technical descents where precise braking is essential for navigating challenging terrain.

Maxxis Rekon 2.4 wt EXO tires adorn both the front and rear of this mountain bike. With their wide trail (wt) design, these tires strike a balance between traction, control, and rolling efficiency. The EXO casing adds durability and puncture resistance, ensuring that riders can push the limits without compromising on reliability.

Lastly, the WTB Silverado Race 142 Saddle completes the bike's ensemble. The saddle is designed for performance and comfort, providing an ergonomic and supportive platform for riders during long rides. Its 142mm width is versatile enough to accommodate various body types and riding styles.

In summary, the 2024 Rocky Mountain Element Carbon 50 Shimano is a meticulously crafted mountain bike that combines cutting-edge materials with top-tier components. From the SMOOTHWALL carbon frame with RIDE-4 Adjustable Geometry to the Shimano XT/SLX drivetrain, Fox suspension, DT Swiss rear hub, and a host of other premium features, this bike is poised to deliver an exceptional riding experience across a diverse range of trails.
