Ride Faster, Hit Harder.
The Altitude is the key platform for enduro racing and aggressive trail riding. Ridden by the Rocky Mountain Race Face Enduro Team, this bike is fast. Already race proven with Jesse's win at the EWS in Zermatt, the redesigned Altitude is now more capable than ever.
Why you'll love it
Looking at the needs of shorter riders vs. taller riders, Rocky Mountain introduced a wheelsize split on their medium Altitude frame. The Altitude is designed high speed descending and aggressive riding, which is why four frame sizes are offered including both size small and medium with 27.5" wheels.
Updated suspension and geometry

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.
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.
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 interlocking chips.
