Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt 710 - 2017

Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt 710


When the trail demands compliance so you can keep your pace, the full-suspension Thunderbolt 710 steps up with the right amount of travel for all of your singletrack adventures. Responsive 27.5-inch aluminum wheels wrapped in Maxxis tires grip and rip, while the RockShox Recon fork and Monarch rear shock keep your tires firmly planted for hammering through rock gardens at speed. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes put the power down for precise control through turns and down techy sections of trail, while the Shimano Deore 2x10-speed drivetrain gives you plenty of gearing and quick shifts on punchy climbs. A solid mix of Rocky Mountain aluminum cockpit components let you know the Thunderbolt takes trail riding seriously, and with Ride-9 adjustable suspension system, you'd better prepare for one electrifying ride.
