Intense 2020 Tracer 27.5 Pro Bike - Unisex


See available mountain bikes


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.
