The Rocky Mountain Instinct Powerplay is a range of electric mountain bikes designed for all-day trail riding. The 29" wheel and 140mm dual suspension combination on Rocky Mountain's incredibly versatile and high performing Instinct platform is a popular choice for the rider who want trail versatility.
With an incredibly powerful 108Nm put out by the Rocky Mountain-developed Dyname mid-drive system and the 672Wh battery you will be riding higher and further than you ever thought possible. The A50 model is a mid-range model in the range with Sram GX Eagle gearing, dropper seatpost and alloy frame.
The Instinct Powerplay is a new addition to Rocky Mountain's much lauded Powerplay electric mountain bike range. The Instinct eMTB's are aimed primarily at the trail rider and tourer looking for an eMTB that can cross over to all-mountain on occasion. An ebike for adventure and one that offers exceptional handling. See Nick's review of the Instinct A50 and why they perform so well.
Rocky Mountain designed their own drive system, the Dyname 3.0, so they could retain the geometry and great handling characteristics of their non-motorized models rather than having to design a frame around an off-the-shelf drive system. According to the MTB press, they nailed it! The riding position is pleasantly centre and upright rather than aggressively sporty and it climbs and descends beautifully. Intuitive, agile and nimble and also still feels controlled at high speeds. Plus you have the added bonus of the Rocky Mountain RIDE-9 adjustment system which allows riders to quickly fine tune their geometry and suspension.
The Rocky Mountain Instinct Powerplay Alloy 50 model comes well equipped with Sram GX gearing, 140mm dual suspension via RockShox Pike Select forks and RockShox Deluxe Select rear shock and a Race Face dropper seatpost. The 29er wheels are fast rolling and smooth and, combined with the ultra powerful and responsive motor, will let you climb anywhere you want. See an overview of the full range available in Australia, including a summary of the key differences between models, in this article.
With a bespoke motor Rocky Mountain are able to design their e-mountain bikes to reflect the ride quality of their highly evolved non-motorized bikes. The Dyname 3.0 drive system is different from other motors in many ways and the ride is sensational.
First up you have to mention the torque. 108Nm! The most powerful climbing motor on offer on Australia. It's not just a headline number though. The motor offers instant pickup and smooth delivery thanks to its inline torque sensor and climbs like a mountain goat. Thanks to the higher capacity 672Wh battery you can climb higher and faster than on any other ebike and, but for the sound of the chain feeding through the guides, its quietness and seamless integration make it hard to distinguish as an ebike.
An iWoc Trio handlebar mounted remote controls the motor with just three buttons and all information can be accessed through an app on your phone. Riders can select from three assist levels plus a walk assist mode.
With a three-year warranty (two for the battery) and a design that allows for quick and easy servicing you have peace of mind on reliability and serviceability as well.
