Show Description

For shred sessions and enduro outings, the Tracer is a competent ride, ready for whatever you deign to throw at it. Pick a line and go – slack geometry and generous travel shrugs off big hits and botched lines with impeccable downhill manners. Intense JS-Tuned suspension allows shorter-than-expected chainstays. Combined with gorgeous E13 LG1 Enduro Alloy wheels, the result is a ride with UFO-like nimbleness and maneuverability. The most sophisticated bike in the world would be a total disaster with junk brakes and components, so the Tracer Pro rectifies with bombproof SRAM 12-speed GX and X01 shifters plus derailleurs, and Shimano disconcertingly powerful XT M8020 brakes.

  • Monocoque unidirectional carbon frame and top link provides a light, stiff and compliant ride.
  • JS Tuned rear linkage results in efficient and balanced ride on climbs or descents.
  • Low standover height improves maneuverability and stability.
  • Suspension link nested directly above the BB allows for a reduction in chainstay length and a shorter wheelbase.
  • Internal routing prevents cable rattle and keeps them protected.
  • FOX Float 36 Factory fork with 160mm can be locked out and tuned.
  • FOX Float X2 Performance rear shock with 165mm of travel and 2-position lever for open and firm settings.
  • FOX Transfer Factory seatpost offers 125mm (S) 150mm (M/L) or 175mm (XL) of travel.
  • Truvativ Descendant crank with pressfit DUB standard and a 32T ring.
  • SRAM Eagle GX shifter and X01 derailleur for a 1x12 drivetrain.
  • Shimano XT M8020 hydraulic disc brakes with a 203mm rotor in the front and 180mm in the rear.
  • 780mm wide Intense Recon carbon handlebars provide a comfortable riding position.
  • Fabric Scoop Radius Elite saddle is ultra comfy.
  • 148x12mm spacing in the rear and 110x15mm in the front boosts stiffness.
  • E13 LG1 Enduro Alloy wheelset with 30mm internal width, XD driver body, and Boost spacing.
  • Maxxis Minion DHF/DHR2 are 2.4in. wide on the rear and 2.5in. wide on the front.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Based in Temecula, California, Intense Cycles have been building aggressive, game-changing and flat-out rad mountain bikes since 1993.
