Agile, playful, capable. This sums up the Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt 730 perfectly. It's the bike you want when you want the low weight and acceleration of an XC bike, with the point-n-go confidence of a trail bike. It starts with a hydroformed aluminum chassis and steps it up with a relatively slack head angle, 120mm of travel on both ends, plus Rocky's Smoothlink suspension action. Uphill, it rockets past your crew, and downhill? Well, make sure you have the keys to the car, you'll be waiting for them for a while. The specs are legit: Fox shock, X-Fusion fork, XT Shadow rear derailleur, Race Face controls, and 27.5-inch wheels wrapped in Maxxis rubber.

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.

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.
