Introducing a fully integrated, electric-assist mountain bike that takes the Altitude’s legendary handling and ride quality and adds a compact, powerful drive system.
The new Powerplay drive system was designed in parallel with the frame, delivering ultra-short chainstays, optimized suspension kinematics, a super-low center of gravity, and class-leading torque.
The result is an e-MTB that actually rides like a proper mountain bike—perfect for everything from self-shuttling all mountain trails, finding flow between the descents, and squeezing in power lunch rides. The Carbon 70 build soaks up heavy terrain with a Fox 36 fork and Fox DPS EVOL shock, while Race Face AR 35 rims and Maxxis WT tires dig into that terrain with tenacious grip and strength. Shimano’s XT derailleur teams up with a Race Face Turbine Crank to blend your strength and that of the Powerplay assist system, taking you further with precise shifting and a considerable gear range. And, 4-piston Shimano XT Trail brakes with 203mm rotors easily handle the big descents you’re going to start racking up with the Altitude Powerplay.
Just as trail-ready as the other Altitude models, the Powerplay Carbon 70 includes a Race Face dropper post and burly Rocky Mountain cockpit hardware to complete this bike’s all-mountain capabilities.
