Rocky Mountain has just announced their inaugural entry into the 27.5+ market: the Pipeline. This is an aggressive, carbon trail bike built for aggressive riding, with a 150mm fork up front, and 130mm of rear travel.
According to Rocky, the Pipeline is 1x-specific and can fit up to 27×3.25″ tires. Of course, everything is Boost-spaced.
The Pipeline will be available in May in two builds: the 770 MSL for $4,799 and the 750 MSL for $3,999.
The 770 will come stock with Maxxis Rekon 2.8″ tubeless-ready tires mounted on Alex XM35 tubeless-ready rims. Other key bits include a 1×11 Shimano XT drivetrain, Shimano XT brakes, and a Fox 34 Float Factory fork.
The 750 sports the same tires and wheels and drivetrain, but saves money with some more affordable bits like Shimano M506 brakes and a RockShox Yari RC fork.
