Our Instinct BC Edition has proven itself as one of the most capable bikes in our lineup. Now imagine what it can do with the assistance of our Dyname™ 3.0 drive system.

Smash down chutes, rail through corners, and then turn it up to “ludicrous” to climb back to the top faster than you ever thought possible. Designed with an optimized single-position link and a long stroke shock that provides 155mm of rear travel, integrated Dyname™ 3.0 drive system, and a component spec meant for charging hard, our BC Edition build has everything you want and more.

We stand behind our products. We’ve increased the warranty on our electrical components from 24 months to 36 months, making it the best in the industry in terms of coverage length. This change is retroactive and will apply to all Powerplay models from their purchase date to present day, and into the future. For more information, visit our Powerplay overview page.

Technologies: Instinct Powerplay Alloy 70 BC Edition

    • Mid-drive slider

      Suspension

      Your Powerplay bike uses a mid-drive slider to control the force of the chain and direct it to the drive pinion. This is a sacrificial wear item and should be cleaned, inspected, and replaced as necessary. Keep the chain clean and lubricated to prolong the life of the slider.

    • Designed in Canada, in collaboration with Propulsion Powercycle, the Dyname™ 3.0 drive system is a sleek, lightweight, and powerful electric assist that pushes the boundaries of electric bikes. Its compact, low-mounted motor allows us to design electric mountain bikes to our suspension and handling standards—with proper geometry and ideal pivot placement. The system provides class-leading torque, instant power response, and super-fast charging.

    • FORM™ alloy

      Frame Construction

      FORM™ tubesets utilize premium materials to meet our strict requirements. Each FORM™ tube that we create is engineered for its specific purpose within the frame, ensuring optimized strength, weight, and ride quality.

    • Smoothlink suspension is efficient yet supple when you’re on the pedals and across a wide range of gears. It features a controlled end-stroke and a rate-curve that feels more capable than the travel would suggest. This four-bar suspension design philosophy is centred on ride characteristics; each bike platform we develop balances variables like anti-squat, axle path, chain growth, rate curve, anti-rise, etc. to achieve the legendary Rocky Mountain ride feel.
