Rocky traditionally releases bikes around what would be crankworx time if they don't launch them in May as a mid year release. So if they have anything coming I'd assume were going to see it soon.

A brief Insta story on his profile appeared where you saw the rig quite well. But the story got deleted... it seemed like an Instinct frame but longer and sleaker.

He seemed happy and ready to race at an EWS on the slayer though. Instinct will only have like 15mm less travel

It's on the front page. In the background of the other bikes lol.


It's pretty clearly not a slayer.

Vaea is hiding something. I was wondering if it was time for an updated Altitude and/or instinct

I think it only looks like a mullet because the front wheel is propped up in the stand. Frame looks pretty similar so I wonder if this is just a slightly updated geo? Or a Altitude/Instinct that can be run either 27.5 or 29 similar to what they did originally with the Instinct that could also take 27.5+ tyres?

To me it doesnt look like it's mulleted. But following the latest trend it's likely RM has that tweak on it too. It's just a screenshot but it looks pretty long to me and the seat tube is fashionably steep.

I think its not a mullet. if you go to the "What Bikes Do DH Racers Ride For An Enduro Race?" Video to 8:29 and set the quality of the video up, you can read the 650B on the front tire.

Jesse's Instagram story shows the rim and tyre and it is a 27.5 2.5 WT. So, it looks like the new Altitude?

It's even more versatile I guess. I think he switches from 29 to 27.5 on the front. Dunno who needs that though
