4.0 Very Good
3.0 Above Average
2.0 Fair
1.0 Poor


- Exceptional uphill and on flat rolling terrain – perhaps one of the best bikes I’ve ridden for this
- Big wheels work


- Limited downhill ability.
- Steep geometry; would love to see how this does with slacker head angles


The list price for the Altitude 29er is $ 3999 Can ($ 3999US). More details on the Altitude 29er, including detailed specifications and geometry can be found on the Rocky site or here

Some of D’arcy’s changes to the stock RMB spec – longer travel front fork (Marzocchi 140mm travel), beefier rims and Maxxis Ardent tread.
