    Expirience with the Rocky Mountain Instinct C90 Shimano

    Rocky Mountain Instinct C90 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 C90 for 2024 stays true to the Ride-4 system for geometry and travel adjustments, making the All Mountain highly adaptable to individual riding preferences. If you ride super fast on tricky singletrails, you will love the calm handling of the Rocky Mountain Fully. In the saddle of the in alpine terrain your bum will have a pleasant ride – and your back too. The way to the summit is not one of the strengths of this bike. A shout out to Rocky Mountain – we take our hats off, because a first-class price / performance ratio make the Rocky Mountain Instinct C90 for on demanding trails a benchmark in the price range above 8000 Euro. Rocky Mountain gives 5 years warranty on the bike.
