2017 Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt 790 MSL BC Edition

Satisfy your dreams of owning one bike to rule it all, and get out and crush some serious trail with the Thunderbolt 790 MSL BC Edition. Rocky Mountain amped-up this version for rowdy Britsh Columbia-style action with wider bars, bigger tires, stiffer wheels, and premium suspension so you can rail flowy singletrack and pop lips with ease. Custom tuning options provided by Rocky Mountain's Ride-9 adjustable suspension system gives you composure and efficiency on all types of trails, and a RockShox Pike RCT3 fork paired with a Monarch Debonair RT3 shock lays chunky rock gardens to waste. A Shimano XTR/XT drivetrain puts lightning-fast shifting at your fingertips, and Shimano XT Ice-Tech hydraulic brakes leave nothing to be desired with pinpoint performance. Beefy Maxxis tires and a set of Stan's ZTR Arch wheels keep you rolling fast and instill confidence through high-speed berms. Finally, 800mm-wide Race Face SixC carbon bars help with front-end control, and a RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper seatpost all but disappears so you can get low on hair-raising descents. Straddle this Thunderbolt and become the king of your mountain.
