2014 Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt

2014 Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt 770 and 730Get ready for some major fun out there on the trails. Customers have been waiting for this new arrival.

The 2014 Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt combines 120mm of travel, alloy frame, 68.5 degree head angle, and 27.5” wheels to deliver a great mix of intuitive XC capabilities and pure playful trail fun.

Rocky Mountain has developed a geometry that lends a more playful feeling to riding cross-country. They designed a short 426mm rear end on the Thunderbolt, tucking the 27.5” wheel in close to the rider for lots of maneuverability and agility. Also, the top tube has been lengthened from traditional Rocky Mountain designs to accommodate for today's shorter stems and wider bars. This is a super fun bike for balancing both XC and trail riding styles.

With four different models and build specs in the lineup, there's a Thunderbolt for every budget.
