Thrive on Whatever Trails You Throw at It The Instinct has been the go-to bike for riders looking for a bike that does it all, and their most recent design takes that philosophy to the next level. The desire to ride faster and harder than ever is universal amongst riders, and the changes Rocky Mountain have made to their Instinct take that to heart while maintaining peak efficiency. Updated geometry and frame features mean that the Instinct is versatile and can adapt to meet any demands that you or the trail may have. Technologies of the Instinct Carbon 90 Size Specific Tune Suspension Size Specific Tune ensures that riders of all sizes get the right balance of small-bump compliance, mid-stroke support, and end-stroke progressiveness. Rocky Mountain’s design team does custom shock tunes based on real world field testing, and adjusts each tune for specific frame sizes. RIDE-9 adjustment system Geometry 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. Adjust your RIDE-9 position for geometry before considering suspension effects, or variables like air pressure and shock compression. Make gradual, incremental changes, take notes, and be methodical. Don’t adjust in a hurry before a big ride. Take your time and enjoy the process. Smoothlink Suspension 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. Smoothwall Carbon Frame Construction Smoothwall carbon uses one of the world’s most sophisticated carbon processes to deliver industry leading stiffness-to-weight, ride quality, and durability. Rocky Mountain have eliminated excess resin and fibers by using rigid internal molds instead of traditional air bladders. Rocky Mountain then utilize different types of carbon in specific frame areas to maximize stiffness and impact resistance while minimizing overall weight.
Pushys go to great lengths to get bikes to their customers as fully built as possible. Due to shipping restrictions there is one part of the build that Pushys mechanics cannot complete, which is fully mounting the handlebars onto the stem. We strongly recommend that a qualified bicycle mechanic undertakes the final fixing of the handlebars before riding. Failure to do so could cause a bicycle malfunction and result in serious injury for which will not be held liable. Any assembly undertaken without professional assistance is at the customer's risk and any damage resulting from faulty assembly will not be covered by the warranty.
