Rocky Mountain Element 30 2012 Mountain Bike


When Rocky Mountain first launched Element in 1996, They couldn’t have predicted that it would go on to become one of the most enduring suspension platforms in mountain bike history. While remaining relatively unchanged, it won races and put smiles on the faces of mountain bikers all over the world for the next 14 years. It was only natural to follow up Element RSL and MSL with a new aluminium Element in both 26 and 29 inch wheels for 2012. The Rocky Mountain Element 30 2012 Mountain Bike (120mm rear travel) share many of the same technologies of Element RSL and MSL, and the result is two bikes that change the alloy cross country mountain bike game. Cross Country means more now.
