Rocky Mountain Bicycles has been designing, developing, and perfecting mountain bikes in and around North Vancouver, BC since 1981. The diverse playground of the North Shore has offered us the ideal proving grounds for all kinds of riding.

As riders ourselves, we obsess over material quality, frame geometry, and suspension optimization to live up to the legendary ride quality we’re famous for. We strive to create bikes with the perfect balance of all the variables.

Our engineers work closely with our athletes in a rapid, agile feedback loop. If you ride the legendary trails near our North Vancouver development centre, it’s not uncommon to run into pros like Thomas Vanderham and Jesse Melamed out for a rip with our designers—data acquisition sensors strapped to their bikes and notepads stuffed into their packs. From the moment you throw a leg over one of our bikes it’s clear that they’re made for people who Love the Ride.
