With 29" wheels and a wide range of RIDE-9™ adjustments, the all-new Instinct is available in both carbon and alloy models. The re-designed frame pushes the rear travel to 140mm, increasing stiffness and tweaking the suspension kinematics. Despite the increase in travel, the new frame has noticeably more efficient pedalling, with better small-bump sensitivity and a host of next-generation features.
Born in BC, we've turned the Instinct into an aggressive trail monster.
Designed with an optimized single-position link, ultra-aggressive geometry, and a long stroke shock that provides 155mm of rear travel, we’ve kitted out the Instinct BC with wide bars, big tires, ultra-stiff wheels, and more capable suspension. It smashes all mountain lines, rails corners, and ploughs over everything in sight while displaying all the climbing efficiency that makes the Instinct a crowd favourite.
