Description

Named after its lightning quick agility, the 2015 Thunderbolt balances XC efficiency and trail capability. It is equally at home on long, technical climbs as it is flowy singletrack descents.

Short 422mm chainstays combined with a longer top tube and a relaxed head tube angle provide both responsiveness and control.

The new SMOOTHWALL™ carbon frame on Thunderbolt MSL models represents a major milestone for Rocky Mountain: by using their new PIPELOCK™ main pivot they have removed all traditional bearings from the frame. Combined with grease ports in key pivot locations, PIPELOCK™ results in a stiffer, lighter, and lower-maintenance bike.

FEATURES:

  • SMOOTHWALL™ CARBON: SMOOTHWALL™ carbon delivers industry leading stiffness-to-weight, ride quality, and durability.
  • RTC™ DESIGN: Every riding style demands a different set of design principles.
  • SMOOTHLINK™ SUSPENSION: SMOOTHLINK™ suspension reduces both pedal-bob and bottom-outs while allowing Rocky Mountain to fine tune for a wide range of intended uses.
  • RIDE-9™ SYSTEM: RIDE-9™ enables riders to choose one of 9 different geometry and suspension configurations to suit their riding style, terrain, and weight.
  • ABC™ PIVOTS: ABC™ Pivots are lighter, stiffer, and require less maintenance than conventional bearing pivots.
  • FORM™ ALLOY: Not all aluminum tubing is created equal. FORM™ provides the superior ride quality Rocky Mountain is known for.
  • PIPELOCK™ COLLET: Rocky Mountain's patent-pending PIPELOCK™ pivot uses a hard-anodized collet that expands radially to create the widest and most rigid pivot stance possible.
  • BC2™ PIVOTS: Bushing Concept 2 (BC2™) Pivots are the oversized next generation of Rocky Mountian's groundbreaking ABC™ system.
