    Summary

    Expirience with the Rocky Mountain Instinct A50 Shimano

    Rocky Mountain Instinct A50 Shimano Review What would the world be without Rocky Mountain? It would keep spinning, but it would be short a few awesome rigs. The newly revamped Instinct A50 for 2024 stays true to the Ride-4 system for geometry and travel adjustments, making the All Mountain highly adaptable to individual riding preferences. No matter how rowdy the ride gets: when shredding the Rocky Mountain Instinct A50, the 63,5 degree head tube angle and the long wheelbase ensure a pretty chilled handling. Anyone who has no special preferences for the seating position can´t go wrong with the All Mountain von Rocky Mountain. Because the saddle takes the balanced approach. Especially for light riders under 70 kilos, the weight of this bike is enormous. With 15,81 kg, the ratio of rider to bike weight could be lighter. Trail lovers should nevertheless be convinced by this argument: in the downhill, the coherent geometry ensures you´ll have a wide smile in your face. With 5 years warranty, nothing stands in the way of a long-term relationship.
