Show Description

A firecracker for the trail. This enduro rig loves a trail roller coaster as much as you do. Unique 279 geometry combines a 29er wheel on the front, keeping you ready to launch over bumps or jumps, and a 27.5 rear wheel for maneuverability and reliable traction. It's light enough to almost make climbing fun. And on the descent, it unleashes its agressive side so you can drive down confidently. From hairpins to jaw clenching jumps, this bike delivers the goods across technical terrain.

  • Full carbon frame scales down the weight while keeping your ride feel nimble and agile.
  • Agressive enduro/trail geometry gives a 65.1 degree headtube angle.
  • Reach: Small (420 mm); Medium (450 mm); and Large (475 mm).
  • Internal cable routing keeps shifter, seatpost and brake cables tidy.
  • Fox Performance 36 fork absorbs shock with 150mm of travel.
  • Fox Performance DPX2 (3-pos) handles well on small or big bumps.
  • SRAM NX Eagle crankset gives you lively power on hills, bumps or loose sections.
  • Shimano M500/M520 hydraulic disc brakes provide powerful all-conditions braking.
  • SRAM NX Eagle shifters give rapid response gearing.
  • SRAM NX Eagle rear derailleur provides quick gear changes.
  • SRAM NX Eagle chain for durable drive power.
  • Dropper seat post.
  • Front tire: Maxxis Minion DHR II 29 x 2.6.
  • Rear tire: Maxxis Rekon+ 27.5 x 2.8.
  • 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 1 year after purchase.
