Trust your Instinct. Stable and aggressive, the Instinct is our most versatile trail bike.

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.
