Go where you want and own every inch of the trail along the way with the Instinct 970 MSL. Stacked with versatility, this 130mm carbon trail machine features Rocky Mountain's Ride-9 system to tailor the suspension and geometry to suit the day's adventure, giving you the ability to rip through miles of buff singletrack and charge down sketchy lines with confidence. Aiding your capabilities are Fox's outstanding 34 Float Performance Elite fork, Float DPS EVOL Factory shock, and dirt-churning Maxxis DHR II tires to keep you deftly chasing in fun's track, and a Shimano XT drivetrain for robust shifting performance. Powerful Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes give you impressive control, and with a RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post, you're always in the best position to absolutely rail mile after mile of singletrack.
