durability

Our bikes are high-end and durable. The components we use are top quality and will last very long. And you can always get upgrades or even have your bike repainted in a new color.

top quality

Our bikes are expensive, we know that. But we want to use high-end components as much as we can. Components that are very durable, like the Pinion gearboxes. They will last a lifetime, as goes for our frames as well.

 

Our bikes are tested to their limits by our test riders, for instance in the Enduro World Series 2021 to be absolutely sure that every component performs.

 

Pinion gearboxes are used all over the world, in all conditions no matter how challenging. They have proven their robustness in numerous round-the-world rides. Ice cold temperatures at the Arctic Circle or sweltering desert heat do not present a problem for these transmissions. High altitudes, humid conditions or even the occasional transfer through a river is not a problem either if you occasionally check and make sure the inside of the gear shift box remains well greased.

upgrades

It is quite normal in the bike industry to use model years and market the same bike as something new the next year. We do not do that.

 

We innovate all the time. Those upgrades will be available as well as parts, so you can keep  your bike up to the latest standard if you would want that.

 

And if you would like a new paint job, in a new color or to repair coating damage, then that is also possible.

local

Most of our production steps are done in the EU, we actually add about 55 up to 65 percent of the production value in the European Union. Many high-end components that we use on our bikes are made in the EU as well.

 

We have build a small series of bikes with a percentage of recycled prepreg carbon fibre from the German automotive industry. That worked out well and when we move our production to Europe we will use this on a larger scale.

buy back

If your bike is younger than two years old, in good condition and for some reason you are not able to ride it anymore, we are happy to buy back from you.

 

Send an email to ride@instinctive.bike

to get instructions how we can make you a price.

recycling

If your frame has been damaged beyond repair, we can help you with a crash replacement and recycle your frame in a proper way, so that the carbon from the frame can be re-used in other products, like high quality public transport seats or even bike frames.

 

Write an email to ride@instinctiv.bike so we can help you.

why not aluminium?

We understand that question and it is a hard one. Some bike manufacturers like Pole are doing really interesting things with aluminum frame building.

 

After a lot of research we decided that for us potential counts most. Although carbon fiber is a composite material, which means that inherently it is hard to recycle, we believe the largest opportunities are for carbon.

 

Aluminum has evolved to its pinnacle and offers little room for improvement. New technologies like high quality additive manufacturing in titanium or aluminum could offer new opportunities, but are still extremely expensive to use for bike frame building.

 

Carbon becomes more and more recyclable, and our well-made carbon frames have the potential to maintain their performance and appearance for many years.

 

And they can be repaired and finally recycled into new carbon parts, although until now from a lesser quality.
