Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt 10 2019
Fast as lightning! The Thunderbolt is our vision of a perfect XC-trail bike.
With the Thunderbolt we’ve designed an all-new carbon frame that pushes the rear travel to 130mm, increases stiffness, lowers the rate curve slightly, and gives the frame a host of next-generation features—but keeps its playful geometry and wide range of RIDE-9™ adjustments. The Thunderbolt is at home on technical climbs, powering through rough stuff, and popping off every trail feature you lay eyes on.
Born in BC, this is how we do trail bikes.
With a long stroke shock that provides 140mm of rear travel, we’ve kitted out the Thunderbolt BC Edition with wide bars, big tires, ultra-stiff wheels, and more capable suspension. With a wide range of RIDE-9™ adjustments for whatever terrain you want to tackle, its more aggressive nature is perfect for all-day trail adventures
