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-9 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.
"The most versatile bike I have ridden"
"Whether it is a new trail that people keep saying is "so gnarly!" or a distant point on the map that makes for an ambitious objective for a ride, the Instinct handles it beautifully and makes it all just so fun!"
"The Instinct is an ideal weapon for riders who like long rides and prefer to pedal deep into a trail system with challenging climbs, yet it still more than holds its own when pointed downhill."
"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."
