Intense Spider 275 A Expert Bike - Unisex
A fast and flickable alloy rocket engineered for flowy trails and XC precision. The secret to the Spider's eagerness lies in the efficient suspension link system that allows for compact chainstays and a shortened wheelbase. Expect mind-bending acceleration and a stiff, responsive feel when mashing steep climbs. The Expert Build offers a selection Shimano's time tested XT components and buttery smooth suspension: Fox Float 34 fork with 130mm of travel to soak up chuddery sections, and 115–130 adjustable Fox Float rear shock to smooth rowdy descents. The 27.5 wheelset hits the sweet spot between a nimble ride and a fast-rolling pace.
