Rocky Mountain Instinct Carbon 30 Mountain Bike

$4,529.99

Crushing rough terrain. Grippy tires and loads of travel will help keep you connected to the ground while soaking up most of the bumps. The Shimano Deore drivetrain is a solid performer and offers a wide range of gearing to help get you up hills. The geometry will help provide confidence at high speeds and on steep descents.

Carbon trail bike with the Pike fork, considered the best fork for pure trail riding. Really nice Shimano components, great tires, and the modern trail geometry.
