2016 Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt 790 MSL BC Edition

Rocky Mountain's Thunderbolt 790 MSL BC Edition has the head of an XC bike with the heart and soul of a go-fast, boost off everything, trail shredder. Set up the British Columbia way: wide bars, big tires, stiff wheels, and premium suspension, this rig is ready to crush it all. The Smoothwall carbon frame is quick, agile, and lightweight, and is more than ready to charge hard on singletrack, as it's paired with a RockShox Monarch shock and a nearly perfect Pike fork delivering 120/130mm respectively. Short chainstays combined with a long top tube and slack head angle balance the bike's agility with just enough playfulness and aggression. The innovative Ride-9 adjustable geometry lets you optimize the bike's set up to your riding style, and the pro parts package seals the deal. SRAM's X01 1x11 drivetrain, Shimano's superb XT brakes, and tubeless-ready Stan's wheels with beefy Maxxis treads ensure you've got more than enough bike for getting zesty. Add a Race Face handlebar and a Reverb dropper post, and it's easy to understand the BC style of riding.
