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.
The idea behind the 3DLink™ suspension technology is simple: triangles. Triangles have the best strength to weight ratio of any geometric shape. The 3DLink™ suspension system is a triangular geometry ideally suited for aggressive cross-country racing. Since the 3DLink™ design does not rely on the shock as a structural member of the frame, it is incredibly stiff laterally, creating a bike that tracks straight, loses nothing to flex, and is as efficient as a hardtail on singletrack.
The 3DLink™ rear suspension design, coupled with a custom-valved Fox shock results in a fully active suspension system, and an optimal XC suspension rate which directs all of the rider's energy into the drivetrain for unparalleled power transfer and acceleration. Optimized pedaling efficiency and no suspension “bob” result in more power and traction to the rear wheel.
