Instinct in the Monashees

As Eddard Stark would say, “winter is coming” so what better way to deal with the onset of crap weather than to realise it isn’t all bad, with the right gear and clothing every day on the trails can be a fun day! Wade Simmons and Kevin Calhoun demonstrate this perfectly riding the new Rocky Mountain Instinct around the Monashee Mountains in BC.

The plan was to head to the Monashee Mountains near Revelstoke, British Columbia with Wade Simmons and Kevin Calhoun to shoot an autumn alpine video for our new Instinct MSL. We wanted to showcase the bike’s versatility under two very different riders—Kevin is an XC racer on our Factory Team, while Wade’s contributions to freeride mountain biking need no introduction—.

Of course sometimes Mother Nature doesn’t play nice, and an early cold snap provided on-and-off snowfall throughout our adventure.

Despite the challenging weather, we knew we had an opportunity to capture a unique aspect of the changing seasons. From Kevin’s dawn patrol ascent to Wade charging snowy trail features, the rapidly changing conditions ended up being the perfect way to showcase the Instinct’s versatility.

We’d like to thank the crew at the Sol Mountain Lodge for all their help with this project. Their lodge was a great base-camp and their trails were a blast even in the snow. We’ll be back again in warmer weather.

Thanks for watching, Love the Ride!
