Description

Show Description

A premium 29er, and in fact, one of the finest 29ers available anywhere in the world. Detailed and engineered for XC excellence, the Primer's hyperlight carbon frame and well-chosen Expert Build components deliver a ride that's competent, flickable and fully race-ready. At its heart lies the innovative i-BOX Pivot system for climbing efficiency and trail management. The Rockshox Revelation RC suspension combined with the 29er wheels offers a smoother ride than you'd get on a smaller-wheeled bike. For the drivetrain, you get nothing but a cutting-edge SRAM 1x12 groupset to move smoothly from long, steep climbs to fast and flowy descents. A Fox transfer seatpost drops out of the way when things get rowdy and pops back up when you need to start churning.

  • Monocoque unidirectional carbon frame with alloy top link is light, strong and stunning.
  • i-BOX Pivot System allows for compact seatstays and a shortened wheelbase for a remarkably nimble and efficient ride.
  • Angular Contact/Collet Bearing System for easy maintenance.
  • 148x12mm spacing in the rear and 110x15mm in the front boosts stiffness.
  • JS Tuned rear linkage results in an efficient and balanced ride when climbing or descending.
  • Tapered head tube shaves grams and improves stiffness.
  • Flack guard protects the downtube and chainstays from chain slap and rock lift-off.
  • Direct-mount front derailleur tab allows the use of a 2x system.
  • RockShox Revelation RC is tuneable and can be locked out.
  • RockShox Monarch RL rear shock is adjustable between 115 and 130mm.
  • Internal routing prevents cable rattle and keeps them protected.
  • DT Swiss M1900 Spline wheels are tubeless ready.
  • Maxxis Forekaster tires offers good grip and low rolling resistance in a variety of conditions.
  • Fox Transfer seatpost with 150mm of travel.
  • SRAM 1x12 GX Eagle groupset leverages a massive 10-50 cassette.
  • Truvativ Style crank uses 6000-series forged aluminum and is equipped with a 34T ring.
  • Shimano XT M8000 hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors in the front and rear.
  • Intense Recon Elite stem and Renthal Fatbar boost stiffness and specialness.
  • WTB Silverado Race saddle is trail-ready.
  • Bikes are covered by MEC's Rocksolid Guarantee and Bike Service Agreement. You can bring your Intense Bike to any MEC bike shop for free adjustments and minor maintenance for 2 years after purchase.
  • Buy an Intense bike, get 2 years of free top-level bike service that includes: drivetrain tune-ups, wheel truing, 2 brake bleeds, 2 fork and shock services and minor part installs.
  • Includes an Intense gift box with over $150 of free stuff – like a torque wrench set, shock pump, and extra valve stems for going tubeless.
  • Based in Temecula, California, Intense Cycles have been building aggressive, game-changing and flat-out rad mountain bikes since 1993.
