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.
18 years of global competition, from medals at the Olympics and World Cup victories to stage races of epic proportions, the Vertex clearly stands above the rest. This year, a completely new, full carbon Vertex RSL has taken another huge leap forward.
Featuring Race Tuned Compact (RTC ) geometry, an evolution that stems from our experience. Rip it up with superior handling XC race geometry. Equipped with a cockpit feel and a frame stiffer and lighter than ever, the Vertex is clearly tuned for speed.
