Product Details

2015 Rocky Mountain Instinct 970 MSL

Designed to take cross country riding up a notch, Rocky Mountain's Instinct 970 MSL is an extremely nimble, playful ride. Built from Smoothwall carbon around Rocky's Ride-9 adjustable geometry, the Instinct is tunable to your riding style. With that adjustability, you find lines that make old trails new with the 130mm of Smoothlink rear suspension and a Fox 32 Float CTD fork. A wide-range Shimano/SRAM 2x10 drivetrain bolsters your climbing legs and wide Race Face bars give you plenty of leverage to muscle through techy sections. With the tubeless-ready Stan's 29er wheels, proper Maxxis tires, and big 180mm XT discs reining it all in, welcome to the new XC.
