2021 Rocky Mountain Instinct Description

We’re happy to have the new 2021 Rocky Mountain Instinct all-mountain trail bike in our rental fleet. The Instinct has long been an important part of our mountain bike demo lineup because it’s so comfortable and versatile. Basically, it’s a fun ride for nearly any rider on almost every trail. The new Instinct is more than just a warmed up version, too. The geometry is all new with more adjustment than ever, wheel diameter that’s size-specific and the fork length has been increased from 140mm to 150mm. With DNA inherited from its predecessor and the 2021 Altitude enduro bike, the 2021 Instinct is everything the old bike was and then some.
