How about an XC bike that doesn't back down when you drop into some gnar? Rocky's Thunderbolt 750 delivers XC lightness with a hydroformed aluminum frame, then, things get interesting. Add a relatively slack head angle, 27.5-inch wheels, and 120mm of travel front and rear courtesy of Fox, and technical sections just got a lot easier. Go ahead, charge it — you're fully equipped to take the hard line with Shimano SLX/XT 2x10 gearing and brakes. Race Face is British Columbia-born and bred the same as Rocky Mountain, so of course the cranks, post and wide Evolve bars are exceptionally capable. Forget about backing down, get on with it.

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.
