Intense 2017 Tracer Pro Bike - Unisex
For your shred rituals and formal Enduro outings, the Tracer is a competent ride, ready to send whatever you deign to throw at it. Pick a line and go – slack geometry and generous travel shrugs off big hits and botched lines with impeccable downhill manners. Intense JS-Tuned suspension allows shorter-than-expected chainstays. Combined with gorgeous 27.5 e*thirteen wheels, the result is a ride with UFO-like nimbleness and maneuverability. The most sophisticated bike in the world would be a total disaster with junk brakes and components, so the Tracer Pro rectifies with bombproof SRAM X1 and X01 shifters plus derailleurs, and SRAM disconcertingly powerful Guide RS brakes.
- Ultra-lightweight carbon SL frame with carbon top link is a stiff and strong knockout.
- Low standover height improve the bike's manoeuvrability.
- JS Enduro Tuned rear linkage results in efficient climbing and descending performance.
- Suspension link rests directly above the bottom bracket for a shorter wheelbase and chainstay length.
- 148x12mm spacing in the rear and 110x15mm in the front boosts stiffness.
- Flack guard protects the downtube, chainstay and seatstay from chain slap and rock lift-off.
- Internal routing prevents cable rattle and keeps them protected.
- FOX Float 36 Performance fork with 160mm can be locked out and tuned.
- FOX Float X2 Performance rear shock with 165mm of travel and 2-position lever for open and firm settings.
- RockShox Reverb Stealth seatpost with 150mm of travel.
- e*thirteen TRS+ wheelset with 28mm internal width, XD driver body, and Boost spacing.
- e*thirteen TRS+ tires with dual compound and aggressive tread pattern.
- Race Face Next carbon fibre crank with 34T ring.

How to measure
- Standover (J)
- Distance from the ground surface to the top of the top tube. Measured at the mid-point of the top tube, or where the rider would be standing when straddling the bike. This measurement should be 2-3cm shorter than your inseam.
