With the Thunderbolt Alloy 30, Rocky Mountain pushes the rear travel to 130mm, increases stiffness, lowers the rate curve slightly, and gives the frame a host of next-generation features—but keeps its playful geometry and wide-range of RIDE-9 adjustments. The Thunderbolt is at home on technical climbs, powering through rough stuff, and popping off every trail feature you lay eyes on. RockShox helps make sure your tires track the course with a Deluxe RT shock and Sektor fork, both XC veterans built for moving quickly.
Speed becomes a natural extension of your body as you crank up the Shimano SLX 1x11-speed drivetrain, which features an 11-46T cassette for impressive climbing prowess while maintaining a fast top-end. Maxxis DHR II tires keep you glued to the trail with race-winning traction, and Shimano hydraulic brakes give you peace of mind that braking is under control so you can focus on carrying speed all the way to the finish line.
