Stable and aggressive, the Instinct is our most versatile trail bike. Whether you’re setting out on an all-day epic or pushing the limits of what’s possible on your local trails, the Instinct’s ride-quality is second to none. The combination of fast-rolling 29" wheels, modern trail geometry, and our RIDE-9 adjustment system means the Instinct is ready for anything you throw at it. - FORM Alloy frame - RockShox Pike Select RC 140mm fork - RockShox Deluxe Select+ RT shock - Shimano XT 12-speed drivetrain - WTB ST Light i30 Rims w/Maxxis Minion 2.4" tires - Race Face Aeffect R dropper post
Born in BC, Rocky Mountain turned the already capable Instinct into an aggressive trail monster. Designed with an optimized single-position link, ultra-aggressive geometry, and a long stroke Fox DPX2 shock that provides 155mm of rear travel, the Instinct BC gives you the performance and confidence to take on big lines and big mountains. Its ultra-stiff, 160mm Fox 36 fork precisely tracks high-amplitude terrain and tempers rutted-out descents. The 2.5/2.4-inch Maxxis Minions surgically carve singletrack while standing up to big rocks and questionable landings, supported by 30mm Race Face AR rims that are happy to huck drops all day long. SRAM both delivers and controls your speed with the huge gear range of a GX/NX Eagle drivetrain and unflinching strength of its 4-piston Guide RE brakes that offer DH power at trail bike-weight. And, with a Race Face Turbine dropper, it smashes all-mountain lines, rails corners, and plows over everything in sight while displaying all the climbing efficiency that makes the Instinct a crowd favorite.
The Thunderbolt is our vision of a perfect XC-trail bike. Quick and nimble, the Thunderbolt is total livewire. Whether it’s powering up technical climbs or popping off every trail feature in sight, its 27.5" wheels and 140mm of rear travel makes this bike ready and capable for when you’re feeling creative with line choice. Our RIDE-9 adjustment system gives you the power to further adjust geometry and ride characteristics to your liking. - FORM Alloy frame - Fox 34 Float Performance 140mm fork - Fox Float DPS EVOL Performance shock - Shimano SLX/XT 12-speed drivetrain - WTB ST Light i30 rims w/Maxxis Minion DHR tires - Race Face Aeffect R dropper post
With the Thunderbolt Alloy 30, Rocky Mountain pushes the rear travel to 130mm, increases stiffness, lowers the rate curve slightly, and gives the frame a host of next-generation features—but keeps its playful geometry and wide-range of RIDE-9 adjustments. The Thunderbolt is at home on technical climbs, powering through rough stuff, and popping off every trail feature you lay eyes on. RockShox helps make sure your tires track the course with a Deluxe RT shock and Sektor fork, both XC veterans built for moving quickly. Speed becomes a natural extension of your body as you crank up the Shimano SLX 1x11-speed drivetrain, which features an 11-46T cassette for impressive climbing prowess while maintaining a fast top-end. Maxxis DHR II tires keep you glued to the trail with race-winning traction, and Shimano hydraulic brakes give you peace of mind that braking is under control so you can focus on carrying speed all the way to the finish line.
