We recommend a maximum rider weight of 100 kg, including clothing, backpack, accessories, etc. to take full advantage of the potential and adjustability of the suspension. Heavier riders may experience an increased sag percentage.
The R is long and slack to give you maximum confidence on fast downhill sections in combination with a coil shock and 160 / 150 mm of travel.
The R features a steep seatpost angle together with an increased reach. The 76° seatpost angle allows you to climb comfortably, keeping weight on the front wheel.
All sizes are given in millimeters, unless stated otherwise.
Various coil and air shocks can be used in combination with the R platform. The following combinations have been validated:
Float DHX 185 x 55 Trunnion

“The Instinctiv scores points with its plush suspension and central riding position. The Pinion gearbox ensures a low centre of gravity and is beautifully integrated into the frame.”
“Although the Instinctiv M9 only has 140 millimeters of rear travel, it rides extremely smooth and feels like a downhill bike on the trail. Thanks to the Pinion gearbox and a good chain guide, it doesn’t make any noise and is unusually quiet on the descent.”
