Details

If you're looking for one bike that does it all, look no further than the Instinct. We've designed a bike that's capable of tackling technical trail riding but still allows you to push the pedals hard on the climbs. We've updated the geometry, frame features, and suspension kinematics to make sure you feel confident on the up's, down's, and everything in between. Trust your Instinct.
