Thunderbolt

Lightning fast, the Thunderbolt is our vision of a perfect XC-trail bike.

Thunderbolt

Travel: 130mm (F) / 120mm (R)

Wheel Size: 27.5"

Intended Use: XC Trail

Lightning fast, the Thunderbolt is our vision of a perfect XC-trail bike. With short, playful chainstays and a wide range of adjustments, it’s at home on technical climbs, powering through the rough stuff, and popping off every trail feature you lay eyes on.

Grease ports in key pivot locations make for a stiffer, lighter, and lower-maintenance bike, and the Smoothwall carbon frame on Thunderbolt 790 MSL is a trim 2350g.
