"Suppleness, stability, sportiness and the perfect amount of travel".
"A dialed and capable bike that puts the "all" in all-mountain."
"The Instinct is an ideal weapon for riders who like long tides and prefer to pedal deep into a trail system with challenging climbs, yet it still more than holds its own when pointed downhill."
-----FREEHUB MTB MAGAZINE
"It makes the Instinct capable of covering a wide breadth of riding that falls under the trail category. From fast, flowing cross country to the steeper, more technical trails that the B.C. brand calls home."
-----CANADIAN Cycling MAGAZINE
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.
