With 130mm of SmoothLink rear travel and RIDE-9 adjustable geometry, the Instinct caters to all-day epic riders wanting a more capable bike when things get rough. With RIDE-9, the rider can tune the ride to suit anything from pure cross-country riding to heavy-duty trail riding. Making a longer travel 29er that mows down trails is one thing, but it has to pedal and climb well too. That’s why we carefully selected the suspension and parts packages to favour efficiency and light weight. Add that to the pedal neutral SmoothLink suspension and incredibly stiff ABC pivots, and the Instinct is no one trick pony.
