The Instinct is a natural fit for all-day backcountry adventures and punishing marathon stage races. Our RIDE-9™ system makes it easy to tune the geometry and suspension to whatever terrain you want to tackle, while its 130mm of SMOOTHLINK™ suspension travel provides the perfect balance of supple control and efficient pedaling.

On bikes featuring our patented RIDE-9™ System, riders and mechanics are able to adjust the geometry and suspension rate to specific riding styles, terrain, and rider weights. Nine different geometry and suspension rate configurations are possible thanks to two interlocking chip inserts that move on separate axes:

SMOOTHWALL™ carbon uses one of the world’s most sophisticated carbon processes to deliver industry leading stiffness-to-weight, ride quality, and durability. We eliminate excess resin and fibers by using rigid internal molds instead of traditional air bladders. We then utilize different types of carbon in specific frame areas to maximize stiffness and impact resistance while minimizing overall weight.
