Show Description

A maverick on the trails. You've got places to go and trails to see, and this technical 29er can tackle the ridges above and the terrain below. Its enduro geometry puts you in an aggressive position, ready for the ebbs and flows of the trail. And its full carbon frame is sweet on the ascent, with bomber shocks that dampen in full flavour on the descent. For the fast and furious, this mountain machine smashes the glass ceiling on trail riding expectations.

  • Full carbon frame scales down the weight while keeping your ride feel nimble and agile.
  • Aggressive enduro/trail geometry gives a 65.3 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 34 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 High Roller II 29 x 2.5.
  • Rear tire: Maxxis Agressor 29 x 2.3.
  • 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.
