All new Rocky Mountain RTC 29 Geometry.
When we began the 2012 Vertex RSL project, we knew we could improve on the status quo of 29er race geometry. We tested countless geometry configurations with our team racers and we quickly zeroed in on what we believe is the perfect race geometry for a variety of terrain.
Our patent pending Angular Bushing Concept™ (ABC) pivots represent a paradigm shift in high performance suspension linkage in the most literal sense. ABC ™ pivots consist of an angular contact polymer bushing which rotates on a tapered alloy pivot. By carefully controlling the tolerance of these pieces, we are able to specify a torque value on the pivot and can eliminate binding, which has been, until now, impossible. The more you tighten a typical bushing system, the more the pivot will bind. Not so with ABC™ Pivots.
And get this; they’re lighter, more durable, and laterally stiffer than a cartridge bearing. On element we saved 120 grams by switching to ABC™ pivots while increasing rear end pivot stiffness by 105 percent. Yes, you read that correctly; ABC™ pivots are 105% stiffer than a sealed cartridge bearing.
Plus, they need almost no maintenance– just clean the contact surfaces from time to time.
Our patent pending Angular Bushing Concept™ pivots are 20 grams lighter (per pivot) and 105% stiffer than sealed cartridge bearings. They’re more durable too.
