Rocky Mountain Bike: The Next Generation of Innovation

Rocky Mountain Bike: Introduction

Rocky Mountain is at the foot Vancouver’s North Shore Mountains. It is known for having one of the most diverse and rugged natural terrains in the world.

Engineers at the Rocky Mountain Development Centre have direct access to the terrain for testing their bikes and other designs. In 1981, they began creating mountain bikes with high quality and performance for mountain bikers.

If you enjoy riding on local trails or taking to the wilds of nature, the Rocky Mountains has the bike for you.

Our goal was to create an best mountain bikes that felt natural from the beginning. We’ve completely redesigned the new Powerplay lineup to build on the success of the Powerplay models and push the boundaries of high-performance e-bikes. We’ve carefully integrated new features into our Dynamo 4.0 drive systems with a rider-focused design. The Powerplay bikes are at the forefront of e-bike innovation.

More power at your fingertips:

When you need them, virtual quads will kick in and stop when you don’t. Transparent power modulation between human and drive. Dyname responds to your pace and reads your heartbeat.

There is no whining:

Dyname 4.0 has a lower motor rpm which reduces the high-frequency gear whine that is common in other systems.

You can ride further:

The Powerplay battery’s capacity has been increased to 720Wh. This will allow you to ride more.

Design freedom in action:

The drive was designed to fit the bike and not vice versa.

Powerplay frames can be used to drive off-the-shelf drives. Pivots can be placed anywhere. Suspension design gives us maximum freedom. The engineering team at Rocky Mountain has an opportunity to imagine, create, and, most importantly, ride the bike they want.

“Since the beginning, I have been a strong believer in Powerplay bikes. I’m thinking about the endless possibilities the trails offer while I’m out on them. The latest version is powerful and packs a huge battery. It has inspired me to go further on challenging terrain and ride harder. The battery can be removed and the Jumbotron top tube shows all the information you need. “Bring on the next generation, and the next ride!” Wade Simmons, Rocky Mountain athlete.

Rocky Mountains mtb has made many iconic models over the past 35 years, including the Altitude and Vertex, Vertex, Blizzards, Pipeline, and Slayer. The Altitude was introduced as a 27.5″ Trail bike in 2005. The Pipeline returned to life as a 29er-ready plus bike, and the Slayer evolved into a big-mountain trail bike. The Altitude Powerplay, an electric version their popular trail bike, is the biggest change in the Rocky Mountain lineup.

Every segment of mountain biking is covered by Rocky Mountain bikes. You can find everything you need, from XC race bikes to bikes that the Froriders wished they had ridden in the 90’s. Here are all the Rocky Mountain bike reviews that we have done.
