    Miscellaneous Rocky Mountain Element High-quality carbon is one thing, but high-quality carbon in a great design is another. The Element 50 MSL features Rocky Mountain's high modulus FORMcarbon. Using monocoque construction techniques, they've created a frame that is both strong and light. Add meticulously selected componentry and what you have is a cross-country bike hot and ready for action.Features: SmoothLink suspension: Placing the rear pivot above the rear hub axle keeps the average chain torque line parallel to the lower link (the line between main pivot and rear pivot) and eliminates pedal bob ABC Pivot Technology: The patent-pending Angular Bushing Concept (ABC) pivots are lighter, more durable, and laterally stiffer (105%) than a cartridge bearing. Plus, they need almost no maintenance just clean the contact surfaces from time to time. FORM tubing: A line of high-performance tubing that pushes the limits of tube and frame design to create the frames unique riding feel. Rocky Mountain engineers control every shape, wall thickness, tapers, flares, and bends in each and every tube.
