2021 Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt – Jesse Munden’s custom build

2021 Rocky Mountain Thunderbolt – Jesse Munden’s custom build

Quick and nimble, the Thunderbolt is all about being playful out there on the trail. What says that better than a kid who can nose bonk, spin, and jump just about anything. Jesse Munden is from Kamloops, British Columbia and at 14-years old is already making noise. He’s been on Rocky Mountain for the past few years and rides everything from a Slayer in the bike park to an Altitude Powerplay on the local trails – but the Thunderbolt is his favourite. The kid loves to jump, spin, and play – so we let him.
