Product Details

2015 Rocky Mountain Element 970 RSL

Race-worthy speed meets trail-bike capability in Rocky Mountain's Element 970 RSL. This 29er is crafted from Rocky's Smoothwall carbon with a tapered head tube and press fit bottom bracket for an impressive combination of low weight, stiffness, and dialed handling. You blast over obstacles and keep your speed with the 100mm-travel Fox Float and 95mm-travel Fox-driven Smoothlink rear suspension. The XT/XTR drivetrain with Race Face cranks provides the get up and go with rapid, telepathic shifting. And, Shimano's legendary XT brakes let you brake later, Maxxis tires let you corner harder, and Stan's tubeless-ready wheels let you accelerate faster as you go all out.
