Product Description

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.

I currently have a 2011 950 Element (aluminum) and it has been the best riding trial bike that I have ever owned. I know it is cons ... Read More »

2012 Element 970 or 2013 Instinct 950

I've norrowed my search down to 2 bikes - 2012 Element 970 and 2013 Instinct 950. I can get them both for about the same price. Has anyone ridden both?
