Details

From all-day epics to technical singletrack, we’ve got you covered.

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.

What sets the Instinct apart

Total trail precision

Razor sharp handling and a buttery but efficient suspension setup means satisfying small bump compliance and addictive flickability. Hitting the sweet spot between big hit confidence and surgical levels of precision, it rewards the rider ready to ride more of everything, faster.

An Instinct for every rider

Embiggening or shrinking a frame isn’t enough. That’s why the Instinct comes in six distinctly sized frames with specific suspension kinematics and two wheel-size options. It’s the only way to ensure every element of the Instinct’s character gets fully realized for every rider.

The right setup for any trail

Total precision is yours on any trail with our RIDE-4 adjustment system and 2-position rear axle that allows for chainstay length adjustment. It’s everything you need to quickly arrive on the best setup for the trail ahead.

FORM tubesets utilize premium materials to meet our strict requirements. Each FORM tube that we create is engineered for its specific purpose within the frame, ensuring optimized strength, weight, and ride quality.

Dropper posts

A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.

Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.

Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.

• Long = high speed stability

• Short = playfulness

• Dedicated Rocky Mountain 180mm brake mount supplies, no extra parts needed

• New Rocky Mountain hanger

• SRAM UDH compatible in Long mode

• The RIDE-9 adjustment system allows riders to quickly fine-tune their geometry and suspension with a pair of Allen keys. Nine configurations are possible thanks to two interlocking chips

• Full guided internally for easy cable and hose management

• Moto style compatible

• Secured for a rattle-free setup

  • Downtube protection, noise canceling chainstay protection“Canadian Shield” yoke protection, and downtube shuttle guard
  •  New Rocky Mountain “Canadarm” mount with OneUp Components V2 Top Guide

Smoothlink suspension is efficient yet supple when you’re on the pedals and across a wide range of gears. It features a controlled end-stroke and a rate-curve that feels more capable than the travel would suggest. This four-bar suspension design philosophy is centred on ride characteristics; each bike platform we develop balances variables like anti-squat, axle path, chain growth, rate curve, anti-rise, etc. to achieve the legendary Rocky Mountain ride feel.
