Instinct vs. Altitude

March 22, 2021
While the all-new Instinct shares many of the same technologies and frame details as our redesigned Altitude, the bikes are starkly different in their intended use and ride characteristics. The Instinct is meant for long days in the saddle and efficiently tackling all types of trails, while the Altitude was designed for aggressive riding and enduro racing.
The Instinct is for the rider who’s looking to embrace the challenge of a technical climb, maintain a steady cadence on flowing singletrack, and push it on the descents.
