Freeride legend, Wade Simmons, “sampled” the new 130mm Rocky Mountain Instinct trailbike in the shop, on the trails and in the studio. Studio? Well, we’ll just let you check out the sample video for yourself.

With the growing crop of 29er trailbikes, the new Instinct will undoubtedly perform with classic Rocky Mountain panache — gobbling technical terrain with ease. It’s predecessor, the Altitude 29, was a blast on the downhill, but needed some refinement. With three years of experience, it sounds like the new Instinct will be a lot of fun.
