Introducing the new 2018 Rocky Mountain Altitude
Richard Allin | Wednesday, 10 May 2017
The saying is, 'A picture is worth a thousand words' and we certainly didn't think any text was required. This is the beautiful new
The Altitude is an ‘aggressive trail’ bike, featuring 150mm (rear) 160mm (front) of travel and 27.5in wheels, which along with its modernised geometry and up-to-the-minute standards, is set to send this bike’s performance well into the future.
“Often imitated but never surpassed, the all-new Altitude pushes the envelope of what a modern trail bike is capable of. For 2018 we’ve designed an all-new frame to increase stiffness, improve pedalling efficiency and small-bump sensitivity, and include a host of next-generation features. Now available in both carbon and alloy models, the Altitude allows for a wide range of RIDE-9™ adjustments to tackle any terrain—from technical BC loam, to clapped out EWS tracks, flowy New Zealand jumps, and Moab slick rock singletrack” – Rocky Mountain.
The new Altitude will be landing in store within the next 10 days, like anything this hot, demand will outstrip supply.
