Rocky Mountain Element 950 Carbon
We were disappointed that they didn’t have any of the new Altitude 650B’s in when we went by the Rocky Mountain booth but was able to snag this carbon beauty intead. It has 110 mm of travel and was spec’d with a fox 120 fork I believe. I didn’t opt to ride this one so I’ll defer to Craig to add his impressions. I know it was stupid, stupid light and super efficient for smoother trails but it was the wrong choice for the gnarly route we took off the top this run. Probably would’ve been well suited for XC racing and Bootleg’s Lake Loops. I felt bad for Craig trying to manhandle this thing in the rough.
Again, didn’t take any pictures. I think this is the one Craig had (I was thinking it was white though). Post up some pics if you got any of this bike, Craig. Sorry about the stock photo
