Show Description

Your ticket to shred. 160mm of front travel, slack geometry and a carbon fibre frame make it a certified enduro weapon. Point the Tracer downhill and expect it to handle everything from big hits to mind-bending rock gardens. The JS-Tuned suspension soaks up drops and chuddery sections of trail with powerful, burly elegance. The Elite model is the pinnacle of the Tracer build series with hyperlight, no-nonsense parts. Trail-ready FOX components handle all of your suspension needs. A carbon wheelset rolls in the absence of gravity. The 1x12 SRAM Eagle X01 with carbon crankset leverages a mega 10-50t cassette and an X01 derailleur and shifter for consistent, rapid-fire performance. Get rowdy and go hard, because the Shimano brakes have you covered with 180mm rotors in the front and rear.

  • 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 Performance Float 36 fork provides 160mm of travel, and can be locked out and tuned.
  • FOX Performance Float X2 rear shock with 165mm of travel.
  • FOX Transfer Factory seatpost offers 125mm (S) 150mm (M/L) or 175mm (XL) of travel.
  • SRAM X01 Eagle 12-speed shifter and rear derailleur leverages a massive 10-50 cassette.
  • Truvativ Descendent carbon crankset uses pressfit DUB standard with a 32T chainring.
  • Shimano XT M8020 hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors.
  • 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 Endura Race carbon rims with 30mm internal width laced to E13 LG1 hubs.
  • Maxxis Minion DHF/DHR2 are 2.4in. wide on the rear and 2.5in. wide on the front.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Based in Temecula, California, Intense Cycles has been building aggressive, game-changing and flat-out rad mountain bikes since 1993.
