See available mountain bikes


Many years in the making, the Sniper is ready to take the top step at XC races and hit local trails. In true Intense fashion, it's long and low, but don’t be fooled: this bike is fast on technical climbs, smooth rolling terrain and tricky descents. JS Tuned suspension offers a super-smooth, bob-free climbing experience while providing a plush ride when the trail gets rowdy. Like you'd expect from a top-level XC racer, the 29in. wheels paired with finely tuned geometry make it roll fast and feel stable. With 120mm of travel in the front and rear, you can expect pedalling efficiency, plus enough travel to hit rough trails with confidence. With Fox top-of-the-line Factory fork and shocks, industry-leading DT Swiss wheels, and a gram-shaving carbon dropper post, the Sniper Trail Pro has the tech for years of next-level riding.
