Lightning fast, the Thunderbolt is Rocky Mountain's vision of a perfect XC trail bike. With short, playful chainstays and a wide range of adjustments, it’s at home on technical climbs, powering through the rough stuff, and popping off every trail feature you lay eyes on.

Grease ports in key pivot locations make for a stiffer, lighter, and lower-maintenance bike.

NEW FOR 2016: the ultra-stiff alloy frame now features our RIDE-9 adjustment system.
