As the little brother of the Rocky Mountain Altitude, the Instinct Powerplay Alloy 50 comes with the same features and looks. The numerous adjustment options for geometry and shock suspension appeal primarily to experienced bikers. The display sits well protected in the top tube in case of a fall.
Even nasty steep sections are effortlessly climbed by the motor. The Dyname 4.0 conveys a riding feeling. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the Instinct Powerplay Alloy 50 with only an average range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the Instinct Powerplay Alloy 50 in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (7000) .

Solid endurance qualities are shown by the chassis of medium quality. Especially for heavy riders, the Rocky Mountain brakes could be a problem. With four pistons they only decelerate averagely. The average shifting components and accessories leave some tuning potential open. For most e-bikers, this should be an acceptable point. The moderate head tube angle provides a good compromise between stability and agility when going downhill. The reach is also right there in the middle ground. For additional points in downhill handling, the low bottom bracket integrates the rider well into the bike and pulls the centre of gravity down. Short chainstays and make the front end light in steep climbs. To keep the front wheel on the ground, you need to consciously lean forward. For the good geometry, the developer team of Rocky Mountain definitely deserves props. Such a knack for detail in geometry is rarely seen. We love deep bottom brackets, as long as it's going downhill. Uphill you need to be aware that the crank can sometimes hit the ground.
