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
"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."
