    Rocky Mountain Altitude Alloy 50

    So I'm looking at getting the 2018 Rocky Mountain Altitude Alloy 50, as the title suggests. Anyone have one (or a similar model) who can give a review? Online reviews don't give me the details i want, so not so much on the spec list (i know the 36ers and the XT drivechain and shit are good) but more on the frame. I would most likely ride in the slackest position, anyone taken them down big jumps or rooty gnarly trails?

    Thanks!

    Heaps of people hit jumps and rough stuff on Altitudes. i.e. WINNING BIKE - Jesse Melamed's Rocky Mountain Altitude - Mountain Bikes Feature Stories - Vital MTB

    I doubt the 2018 model is any worse.

    My friends and I have sent our 2013-2017 altitudes down some of the gnarliest terrain I can think of. The 2018 model is even better equipped for such things with quite a bit more wheelbase and head angle. If in doubt keep in mind that you can long shock the new altitude for almost 170mm rear travel. I have ridden a coil equipped long shocked 2018 model 90 carbon and it was super plush and still agile. The only gripe some people have had is the lower spec models with the duroc rims having dented the rims as they're reportedly a bit soft.
