The RIDE-9™ adjustment system allows riders to quickly
fine-tune their geometry and suspension with a pair of
Allen keys. Nine configurations are possible thanks to two
Smoothlink™ suspension is efficient yet supple when you’re
on the pedals and across a wide range of gears. It features a
controlled end-stroke and a rate-curve that feels more capable
than the travel would suggest. This four-bar suspension design
philosophy is centred on ride characteristics; each bike platform
we develop balances variables like anti-squat, axle path, chain
growth, rate curve, anti-rise, etc. to achieve the legendary Rocky
Mountain ride feel.
Size Specific Tune ensures that riders of all sizes get the right
balance of small-bump compliance, mid-stroke support, and
end-stroke progressiveness. Our design team does custom
shock tunes based on real world field testing, and adjusts
each tune for specific frame sizes.
This 3rd generation of drive system was designed and
developed by Propulsion Powercycle and Rocky Mountain
Bicycles in Canada. The Powerplay™ is a patented mid-drive
system that’s under exclusive license from Propulsion
Powercycle. The Powerplay™ drive system is a sleek, lightweight,
and powerful electric assist that pushes the boundaries of
electric bikes with its smooth, instant power response and
intuitive ride feel. The Powerplay™ was designed in parallel
with our frame, allowing us to produce an e-MTB with the same
geometry and suspension kinematics as our unassisted
Altitude. The system provides class-leading torque, ultra-quiet
operation, instant power response, and super-fast charging.
Smoothwall™ carbon uses one of the world’s most
sophisticated carbon processes to deliver industry leading
stiffness-to-weight, ride quality, and durability. We eliminate
excess resin and fibers by using rigid internal molds instead
of traditional air bladders. We then utilize different types of
carbon in specific frame areas to maximize stiffness and
impact resistance while minimizing overall weight.
FORM™ tubesets utilize premium
materials to meet our strict
requirements. Each FORM™ tube
that we create is engineered for its
specific purpose within the frame,
ensuring optimized strength,
weight, and ride quality.
It’s an Altitude
The Altitude Powerplay has the same geometry and suspension performance as the unassisted Altitude platform. It is the first e-MTB that features true aggressive trail ride feel.
Next generation drive system
The Powerplay™ drive system was designed from the ground up to allow true mountain bike performance, while providing class-leading torque, massive battery capacity, and ultra quiet operation.
Intuitive pedal assist
An in-line torque sensor provides smooth, instant power response, making for an intuitive, natural
ride with no learning curve. Get on and go.
Charge fast, then charge hard
The 48v system provides super short charge times, taking only two hours to reach 80% capacity of the available 632Wh lithium ion battery.
Easily serviceable components, with both replacement parts and strong dealer service support in Canada.
