Rocky Mountain updates its in-house designed motor and bolts it to the new Instinct & Altitude Powerplay


Four years ago, Rocky Mountain unveiled its first e-Bike, the Altitude Powerplay, and followed up a year later with the Instinct Powerplay and Growler Powerplay. Instead of building a bike around an off the shelf e-Bike system, the Canadian brand developed its own. Given the role the motor itself plays in the ride characteristics of an e-MTB, this was a bold move.

Relying on an electro-mechanical torque sensor to measure chain tension, the motor was quick to react when you got on the pedals and has impressive figures when it comes to peak torque and assistance. In our experience aboard the previous version, you had to pedal a little harder than a Bosh or Shimano e-Bike suite, but there was plenty of support on offer.

For 2022, Rocky Mountain has updated the Dyname drive system and the Altitude and Instinct frames built around it.

Rocky Mountain Altitude
Rocky Mountain took a totally different route into the e-MTB arena with its Dyname drive system.

The new 2022 Altitude Powerplay

Serving as the brand’s enduro platform, the Altitude sees 150mm of rear travel, and a 160mm fork. The beauty of the Dyname e-Bike system is it uses a standard bottom bracket and crankset, and because of this doesn’t require as many compromises to the geometry. When the Altitude Powerplay was launched, the geometry chart was just about a mirror image of the unassisted version of the bike, and offered the full-blown Ride-9 geometry adjustment system. The new frames have had an update, but it’s more of a refinement than a ground-up rebuild.

This is most noticeable in chainstays, which measure 437mm — with the chainstay flip-chip in the short position. The Polygon Mt Bromo and Canyon Spectral:ON are both a hair shorter at 435mm, but use non-traditional chainstays or a mullet wheel to achieve a compact rear end. Rocky has pulled this feat off with no tomfoolery and clearance for a 29×2.6in tyre.

For 2022, the new Altitude has ditched the size-specific wheels and gone full 29-er across the range, and swapped Ride-9 for the simpler four-position Ride-4 flip-chip. In the neutral position, the head angle is 0.4-degrees slacker, the seat tube is .5-degrees steeper, and the reach of a size medium frame has jumped up by 6mm.

Rocky Mountain Altitude

Available in both Carbon and Alloy frames, Rocky claims the Altitude Powerplay Carbon 70 weighs 23.53kg in a size large. Rocky is offering the frame in sizes SM-XL.

The new 2022 Instinct Powerplay

The Instinct Power Play is Rocky’s Trail/All Mountain platform with 140mm of rear travel, paired with a 150mm fork. Like the longer travel Altitude, it gets the new motor and Ride-4 chip.

Rocky Mountain Instinct
Is it an Altitude or an Instinct? The front shock mount is the main difference between the two frames.

The analogue Instinct and Altitude are based around the exact same frame, but thanks to the replaceable front shock mount, the rear travel can be changed — and by proxy the geometry. Rocky Mountain has confirmed this is also the case with the carbon Powerplay models, simply swap out the shock mount, bolt in a longer shock, and viola, you have yourself and Altitude. The alloy frames too are based around the same platform but don’t receive the modular shock mount.

Rocky Monuntain Instinct

Compared to its predecessor, the head angle is 0.4-degrees slacker, the seat tube is 0.6-degrees steeper, and the reach of a size medium frame increased by 7mm. Same as the Altitude, the Instinct Powerplay rolls exclusively on 29in wheels and is available in alloy and carbon versions.

Rocky doesn’t list a claimed weight for the 2022 Instinct, but we’d venture a guess that it’s pretty darn close to the 23.53kg figure quoted above. The Instinct Powerplay will be available in sizes from SM-XL.

Dyname 4.0

One of the main selling points of the Dyname system was that it used a standard crankset and bottom bracket, and all the wear components are parts that could be found in any bike shop.

The updated version has the same power output and 108Nm peak torque, but now comes in a smaller package, claimed to be 18.5-per cent lighter. Rocky also tells us that Dyname 4.0 is quieter, with the upper chain slider removed to reduce mechanical noise. The motor also spins at a lower RPM to reduce the trademark e-Bike whine.

New for 2022 is the Jumbotron top tube display and a smaller, more ergonomic bar-mounted remote. The Jumbotron will present key information like speed, battery life, boost mode, and optimal cadence to get the best performance out of the motor.

Rocky Mountain Instinct Powerplay & Altitude Powerplay
The top tube mounted Jumbotron display is more or less the brains of the operation and is controlled by a bar-mounted remote.

Together, these new features can be used to tune the four assist modes and customise the boost level — which adjusts the torque-sensitivity, and how the bike reacts to pedalling input — and the output power — or the percentage of the available motor output power.

Rocky Mountain has also added a bigger 720Wh battery, that is now removable and can be charged off the bike. The brand claims its new 4A charger can take the battery from flat to full in 3hours and 55min, while the 2A charger needs 7hours and 35min for a full charge.

If 720Wh isn’t enough for your big backcountry epics, Rocky Mountain also has an add-on 350Wh battery called the Overtime pack that mounts to the bottle cage bolts.

Interestingly, the Canadian outfit makes no claims about range or ride time.

Suspension kinematics and wheel path

With the new motor taking up less space in the frame, Rocky has rejigged the pivot layout on the Altitude and Instinct Powerplay. The new bikes use a mid-high main pivot layout which allows for a more rearward axle path, and the kinematics have been tuned to provide more pedalling support.

Rocky Mountain Instinct suspension kinematics
The Altitude has a slightly less progressive suspension rate (40.5%) than the Instinct shown here, and slightly more anti-squat.

The carbon models of the new Powerplay come with a modular front shock mount that will allow riders to tailor the amount of rear-wheel travel.

Rocky also does custom shock tunes based on frame size to ensure riders of all sizes get the most out of their suspension.

Rocky Mountain Ride-4
The Ride-4 chip allows riders to customise their ride and suspension characteristics, but this isn’t the only adjustment available.

Ride-4 adjustment

Before we dive into the nitty-gritty of these new frames, let’s take a look at Rocky Mountain’s flip-chip arrangement. Both the Altitude and Instinct get the Ride-4 adjustment system, which allows riders to fine-tune geometry and suspension kinematics with a rotating, four-position square chip at the shock bolt. The previous Powerplays see the Ride-9 adjustment system, which uses dual interlocking chips to adjust the geometry and kinematics. With double the available chip positions, it can be a bit intimidating to mess with, Ride-4 is a bit simpler and more streamlined.

Each bike also gets Rocky Mountain’s dual position axle at the back, which allows riders to customise chainstay length by 10mm to further tailor handling characteristics.

2022 Rocky Mountain Altitude Powerplay & Instinct Powerplay prices and specs

The local Rocky Mountain distributor GFL Group has confirmed we will be getting five models of the Altitude Powerplay and four of the Instinct Powerplay here in Australia, with prices starting at $8,400 AUD and topping out at $18,499 AUD.

We don’t have a concrete date as to when the new Rocky Mountain e-MTBs will land here in Aus, but they are projected to hit our shores before the end of the year.

Rocky Mountain Instinct
The new Rocky Mountain Powerplay bikes should find their way to dealers before the end of the year.
