    Element with new XTR, 2019?

    My next replacement for my 2013 Element BC is definitely going to be a new Element with XTR 12 speed.
    Any idea when this will be available? 2019?

    And Rocky: please provide a one colour dark frame option, preferably black.

    I'm betting more information will be popping up in the next few months, I'm excited to see what RM will offer in the Element line, hoping to see the option for Shimano or Sram..

    It sounds like 1x12 XTR won't begin shipping until the post Interbike/Eurobike time period, so that likely means delivery in OEM quantity for new bikes that will be shipping in early 2019.

    Ask your Rocky dealer to see the new catalog for next year. I believe only the C90 comes stocked with XTR 12 speed, but I did see it on there!

    Any way to see the catalog online? Curious to see which frame colours they will offer for the xtr.

    (frankly don't like the bright yellow or two colour red canadian options previously available for the top models.. )

    I don't know about black, but I remember the C90(I think) colors being half fox racing orange, and half gray. Looked pretty darn good to me, also came stocked with Maxxis skinwall tires if I recall correctly. Might have a chance to look at the catalog again tomorrow.
    Don't think its online yet at my LBS only recieved the catalog last week

    The Orange looks nice. No Carbon 99 full bike this year? Or not posted until final spec confirmed?
    2018 RMB Element Carbon (custom)
    2017 RMB Element 950 MSL
    1997 RMB Equipe

    Disappointed:

    Carbon models only with ugly two-colour red or orange options. No one colour frames.

    XCO 90 model- with XTR- only 100 mm fork.

    Will try to get the dark 2018 Element Carbon 70- if possible- or change brand.

    Super bummed that they added just a really lackluster Orange. I love SRAM so Iím happy there but was holding out for something eye catching as far as color like the higher travel models
