Details

Rocky's Thunderbolt 710 is like an XC bike that spent the off season in the gym. It retains the agility and quickness that you want in an all-day bike, yet has the muscle when the trail turns nasty. The aluminum frame is designed with confident geometry, so going up or down, the terrain isn't calling the shots, you are. With 120mm of Manitou travel front and rear, the 710 doesn't back down from gnar. Neither do the specs; you're equipped with 3x10 Shimano gearing with FSA cranks, wide bars, 27.5-inch wheels and Shimano hydraulic discs. Looks like that off-season training really does pay off.

Rocky Mountain's Smoothlink suspension places the rear chainstay pivot above the rear axle, keeping the chain torque line parallel to the linkage. The benefit? The rear suspension is always active, bob-free, and delivers a wonderful bottomless feel, no matter what gear you're in.  

Rocky Mountain's FORM tubing pushes the limits of tube and frame design to create their unique riding feel. Every detail of the FORM frame-tube design has a purpose, from the outer shape and profile, to the wall thickness, tapers, flares and bends. This attention to detail, paired with premium materials and manufacturing processes, allows Rocky Mountain to push the boundaries of bicycle design.
