Two models are a part of the 2011 Rocky Mountain Flatline series for 2011: the World Cup and Pro.
Rocky Mountain‘s 2011 Flatline World Cup and Pro was developed by Thomas Vanderham and Sabrina Jonnier. Both ride for the Maxxis-Rocky Mountain World Cup team.
The 2011 Flatline World Cup and Pro use 8 inches of travel. Since most downhill riders want their weight low, Rocky Mountain uses the LC2R (low center counter rotating system), allowing cyclists to achieve just that.
The 2011 Flatline World Cup and Pro models feature Rocky Mountain’s patented head tube mitering process, fusing the top tube and down tube at the junction. The process adds for a lighter and stiffer ride.
The Rocky Mountain 2011 Flatline World Cup has a Fox 40 RC2 front suspension, DHX RC4 rear shock, Shimano Saint Drivetrain and brakes, and DT Swiss EX 500 tubeless rims. Releasing in red/white, the bike will retail for $5,699. It is also available as a frame only.
The 2011 Rocky Mountain Flatline Pro comes equipped with Rock Shox Boxxer RC front suspension, Vivid R2 rear shock, SRAM X7 drivetrain, SRAM X9 shifting and DT Swiss E540 Tubeless compatible rims. Available in blue/white/yellow, MSRP is $3,599.
