    Summary

    Expirience with the Rocky Mountain Instinct C70 Shimano

    Rocky Mountain Instinct C70 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 C70 for 2024 stays true to the Ride-4 system for geometry and travel adjustments, making the All Mountain highly adaptable to individual riding preferences. With a flat 63,5 degree head tube angle and a long reach, the geometry corresponds to the current trend. Anyone who has no special preferences for the seating position can´t go wrong with the Rocky Mountain Instinct C70. Because the saddle takes the balanced approach. A shout out to Rocky Mountain – we take our hats off, because a first-class price / performance ratio make the Instinct C70 for in alpine terrain a benchmark in the price range under 8000 Euro. A nice warranty promises sustainability. With 5 years warranty Rocky Mountain sets the bar high!
