About this bike
This bike is best suited for:

Ripping around the local trails


Rocky Mountain has been on a bit of a bike updating spree over the last couple of years, and their Thunderbolt is the platform to get a complete makeover. The bike is bumped up in travel from 120 to 130mm on the normal models (and up to 140mm on the BC Edition), and the cross-country-ish trail bike also sports contemporary geo and a tweaked suspension layout. One thing that didn't change, however, is the wheel size: It's rolling on 27.5'' hoops rather than big wheels, with the idea being to keep the baked-in playfulness that the Thunderbolt was originally known for.
