Instinctiv M9, M97 and M7
When we developed our first line of mountain bikes, we gave them a letter-number combination, based on the letter M. Therefore we called this first model the M-series. Later we added the R9 with coil and X9 as a lighter 130mm travel bike.
In 2022 we switched to giving the bikes animal names. And a bit later we added the rear travel as a number to the bike names.
