Designed for the rugged riding that surrounds our North Vancouver office, the Rocky Mountain Instinct is a versatile, long travel 29er. No stranger to pushing the limits of what trail bikes are capable of, Wade Simmons sampled the Instinct and came away with a verdict: it’s a contender on a variety of terrain and a ton of fun.

Key features:
Ride-9 adjustable geometry & suspension chip
Stealth dropper post & internal cable routing
130mm of Smoothlink travel
RTC-29 Geometry: HA 67.7°-69.3°, BBD 40mm-21mm, CS 452mm
ISCG05 Tabs
ABC Pivots

    Was hoping for more riding but that was still a super fun video 🙂

  • Buster Bluth

    The only thing that would have made that video better was a scene with a Rocky Mountain pickup truck being driven erratically. Oh yeah, and more riding. PS. Nice bike!
