Instinctiv are a new and innovative manufacturer of high-end MTBs based out of the Netherlands – you can see more here.

Covid restrictions have meant that it’s been difficult for Instinctiv staff to deliver bikes in person to test riders and press reviewers – hence they commissioned Buxumbox to make a box long enough to swallow the largest version of their M9 bike in order to ship test bikes around the world.

The exclusive use of Pinion gearboxes on all their bikes enables the frame to sit lower in the box – custom mounting brackets enable this and help keep the overall height of the box to a minimum. Additional bracing helps to protect against the rigours of courier transport.

This is another good example of how UK manufacturing can react quickly and flexibly to custom requirements.

Best wishes to Instinctiv for the 2021 season and many trouble-free miles!
