Description

Show Description

Your ticket to shred. 160mm of front travel, slack geometry and a carbon fibre frame make it a certified enduro weapon. Point the Tracer downhill and expect it to handle everything from big hits to mind-bending rock gardens. The JS-Tuned suspension soaks up drops and chuddery sections of trail with powerful, burly elegance. The Foundation model kicks off the Tracer build series with rock-solid, no-nonsense parts. Trail-ready RockShox components handle all of your suspension needs. The 1x12 SRAM Eagle NX leverages a mega 11-50t cassette and an NX derailleur and shifter for consistent, rapid-fire performance. Get rowdy and go hard, because the Shimano brakes have you covered with 180mm rotors in the front and rear.

  • Lightweight carbon frame with alloy top link.
  • Low standover height improves manoeuverability.
  • JS-Tuned enduro rear linkage results in efficient climbing and descending performance.
  • Nested suspension link directly above the bottom bracket offers short chainstays and a shorter wheelbase.
  • 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 protects cables and keeps them from rattling.
  • RockShox Yari RC solo-air fork provides 160mm of travel, and can be locked out and tuned.
  • RockShox Monarch RL rear shock with 165mm of travel.
  • Intense Recon dropper seatpost with 150mm of travel.
  • SRAM NX Eagle 12-speed shifter and rear derailleur.
  • SRAM NX 11-50 cassette.
  • Race Face AR30 rims with 30mm internal width laced to Intense Tuned hubs.
  • Maxxis Minion DHR2 tires are 2.4in.
  • SRAM NX crankset uses SRAM DUB axle and is equipped with a 32T chainring.
  • Shimano M500 hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors.
  • WTB Silverado Sport saddle.
  • Intense Recon handlebars with 20mm of rise and 780mm width.
  • Grease zerks at pivot points, extra-large bearing diameters, and internal cable sleeves for easy maintenance.
  • 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.
