Rocky Mountain has just introduced a very special mountain bike. The Instinct Carbon 99 not only features a top of the line build, but you’ll also find a limited edition paint job – if you can find one. The model is limited to just 20 bikes world wide, so if you want one, you’ll have to be quick.Advertisements
Built on their Instinct platform, the Rocky has 29″ wheels with 150mm travel up front and 140mm travel out back. A carbon frame with their RIDE-9 adjustable geometry and suspension rate is then covered in a gorgeous chameleon paint job with minimal branding.
No halo bike would be complete without a spectacular build, so the Instinct gets their ’99’ level parts kit with a complete SRAM XX1 Eagle AXS wireless drivetrain, RockShox Reverb AXS wireless dropper, SRAM G2 Ultimate brakes, a RockShox Pike Ultimate RC2 150mm fork and Super Deluxe Ultimate RCT shock, and a Race Face Next R carbon wheels and handlebar. Complete weight is said to be 12.9 kg (28.4 lb), for a size medium.
Of course, such a special bike isn’t without an especially high price tag. The Instinct Carbon 99 is priced at $9,999. Though to be fair that’s in line with other companies’ AXS equipped wonder bikes – that aren’t limited editions.
The bikes will be available in the U.S. and Canada starting today.
