With a pedigree of success on the most aggressive Enduro World Series tracks, the all-carbon Slayer’s descending aptitude and uncanny ability to hold speed in rugged terrain are matched with surprising pedaling efficiency. Predictable and capable, its rate curve provides good support at sag and a moderate ramp towards the end-stroke—perfect for sending bike park laps and big mountain lines.
With 29" wheels and a wide range of RIDE-9™ adjustments, the all-new Instinct is available in both carbon and alloy models. The re-designed frame pushes the rear travel to 140mm, increasing stiffness and tweaking the suspension kinematics. Despite the increase in travel, the new frame has noticeably more efficient pedaling, with better small-bump sensitivity and a host of next-generation features.
