It's right for you if...

You love to ride, but struggle to find the time and energy you need to make those rides worthwhile.

Form Alloy Frame Construction

Smoothwall™ carbon uses one of the world’s most sophisticated carbon processes to deliver industry-leading stiffness-to-weight, ride quality, and durability. We eliminate excess resin and fibres by using rigid internal moulds instead of traditional air bladders. We then utilize different types of carbon in specific frame areas to maximize stiffness and impact resistance while minimizing overall weight.

Smoothlink Suspension

Smoothlink™ suspension is efficient yet supple when you’re on the pedals and across a wide range of gears. It features a controlled end-stroke and a rate-curve that feels more capable than the travel would suggest. This four-bar suspension design philosophy is centred on ride characteristics; each bike platform we develop balances variables like anti-squat, axle path, chain growth, rate curve, anti-rise, etc. to achieve the legendary Rocky Mountain ride feel.

Dyname 3.0 Drive

Designed in Canada, in collaboration with Propulsion Powercycle, the Dyname™ 3.0 drive system is a sleek, lightweight, and powerful electric assist that pushes the boundaries of electric bikes. Its compact, low-mounted motor allows us to design electric mountain bikes to our suspension and handling standards—with proper geometry and ideal pivot placement. The system provides class-leading torque, instant power response, and super-fast charging.

Ride-9 Adjustment System

The RIDE-9™ adjustment system allows riders to quickly fine-tune their geometry and suspension with a pair of Allen keys. Nine configurations are possible thanks to two interlocking chips. Suspension and geometry setup are complex art forms with huge variations in rider style, preference, terrain, and ability. We do recommend the use of professional services, but we also believe that learning to dial in your own bike is the best way to fully understand its performance. Adjust your RIDE-9™ position for geometry before considering suspension effects, or variables like air pressure and shock compression. Make gradual, incremental changes, take notes and be methodical. Don’t adjust in a hurry before a big ride. Take your time and enjoy the process.

Why you'll love it

  • Stunning Colourway. The stealthy black mixes well with the hot red of the logos
  • Dropper Post. A must have if you are taking the bike through anything higher than a grade 3 trail, lower your centre of gravity and go faster
  • 2.6" Tyres. A big set of tyres improve your comfort when riding and increase grip for fast cornering
  • Wide Cassette. You'll forget you're riding a 1x bike with a wide range of gears available in the rear (11-46t)

The final word

The Instinct Powerplay will take you to the places you never thought possible. When it comes time to head out the door for that epic ride into the alpine, you’ll be riding further and faster than ever before on what is our most versatile e-MTB yet.
