Custom Rocky Mountain FORM C13 High Modulus SmoothWall construction. 100% designed, engineered and tested in house by our R&D team to ensure the lightest, stiffest frame and the best ride quality. In 2011, we unveiled SmoothWall construction to the world with the introduction of the Element RSL, and since then, it has won unanimous praise for its incredible light weight and superior stiffness.
Smoothwall construction is achieved by sculpting the inner surface of the frame as carefully as the outer, with the help of an inner mold, as opposed to the traditional air bladder. This results in no excess resin, fibers or filler, meaning no stress risers or extra weight.
The most important characteristic of SmoothWall technology is that it enables us to construct frames with the highest carbon layup density. SmoothWall’s super high fiber to resin ratio with maximum compression of the pre-preg carbon layers results in the lightest and stiffest construction possible.
SmoothWall also allows us to use full length (uncut) fibers, yielding a stronger frame. This all adds up to one of the most sophisticated carbon frames in the world.
Vertex RSL utilizes a precise carbon layup schedule, using multiple types of carbon weaves in specific locations to maximize stiffness and impact resistance while minimizing weight.
The heart of a bike is its frame. The geometry, the material, the feel, and the way it reacts under the rider are the very essence of the ride. That’s why we’ve introduced FORM™ – the design and manufacturing process of our high-performance frame tubing. Our philosophy behind FORM™ tubing is to push the limits of tube and frame design to create the frame’s unique riding feel.
Engineered Ride Quality: FORM™ tubing is a line of high-performance tubes designed to elevate the superior ride quality for which Rocky Mountain Bicycles are known. Innovative design: With 25 years of innovation, we continue to push the boundaries of bicycle design. FORM™ tubing is the exciting new frontier of our creativity.
Attention to detail: Every detail in a FORM™ tube set is carefully engineered and has a purpose: from the slightest variations in shape, to wall thickness, tapers, flares and bends.
Uncompromised quality: FORM™ tube sets are manufactured with premium materials and delivered by the best suppliers in the industry to meet Rocky Mountain’s strict requirements.
We’ve got your back. With a first of its kind 76-degree seat angle, you’re in a position to defy gravity at every technical uphill climb. The Straight up geometry and its bio-mechanically correct seat position allows for maximum horsepower. Not only will you get an efficient ride, it’ll save your lower back and limits pressure on your “sensitive areas”... if you catch our drift.
Our groundbreaking SmoothLink suspension features minimal pedal feedback so you get a smoother pedal stroke, especially on uphill climbs. How does it work? By placing the rear pivot above the rear hub axle, we keep the average chain torque line parallel to lower link (the line between main pivot and rear pivot), we eliminate pedal bob.
