This is the least expensive Rocky Mountain we have ever stocked, yet you can look very hard and find no corners cut to achieve such a good spec at such a good price.
The Easton Elite Taperwall sub-4lb aluminium frame, the Marzocchi Z5 Air fork and the Shimano Deore 27-speed transmission speak for themselves, but what we really appreciate is the specing of top notch Shimano in crucial areas (the V-brakes, chainset, sealed bottom bracket and hubs) were you usually find own-brand (ie cheap) substitutes when you get up close to similarly priced bikes. This no-compromise approach to quality and reliability makes the Elevation a definite contender for our 'Bike of the Year'.
