reviews

“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.”

“This gearbox mountain bike is surely the most successful machine that we have been able to test with this type of transmission. It is totally consistent with its program, whether in terms of the suspension quality, the geometry, mass distribution or the finish.”

“Downhill the M97 turns on and purrs smoothly through the terrain.The rear end works first class, responds well and reliably levels even rough passages. There is enough pop available for jumps and sufficient progression for hard landings. As a result, the potent rear end feels like more than 150 mm of travel.”

“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.”
