Intense 2018 Spider Pro Bike - Unisex


See available mountain bikes


The ultimate device for fast riding, the Spider Pro is explosively fast and insanely light. The weight of the carbon frame is on par with many road bikes, but the real secret to its eagerness lies in the efficient link system that gives it compact chainstays and a shortened wheelbase. Expect mind-bending acceleration and a stiff, responsive feel when mashing steep climbs. Gorgeous SRAM Eagle GX and X01 components make it that much more, while SRAM Guide RS brakes efficiently scrub speed. To make this beauty good to go, it features a reliable FOX Transfer dropper seatpost and tubeless ready DT Swiss wheels.
