Show Description

Take a long ride on the wild side. Built for efficiency over untamed terrain, this cross country trail machine ignores gravity without sacrificing trail handling. Its ultralight carbon frame puts you in position for powerful pedalling, covering distances that previously seemed daunting. Lighter shocks still dampen your ride nicely, but without burdening your trail beast with unnecessary grams. A carbon dropper seatpost means you don't suffer through different riding positions, so you can leave your worries at the trailhead and stay on track all day.

  • Full carbon frame scales down the weight for an efficient and stiffer ride.
  • Efficient XC geometry gives a 66.5 degree headtube angle.
  • Reach: Small (421 mm); Medium (445 mm); and Large (468 mm).
  • Internal cable routing keeps shifter, seatpost and brake cables tidy.
  • Fox Factory 34SC fork is light and absorbs shock with 120mm of travel.
  • Fox Performance DPS handles well on the bumps but keeps your ride efficient.
  • SRAM Stylo Carbon Eagle crankset balances power transmission with ultralight construction.
  • Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes provide responsive all-conditions braking.
  • SRAM GX Eagle shifters give rapid response gearing.
  • SRAM XX1 Eagle rear derailleur provides quick gear changes.
  • SRAM GX Eagle chain for durable drive power.
  • Dropper seat post.
  • Maxxis Forekaster 29 x 2.35 reduces friction and provides effective traction.
  • 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 have been building aggressive, game-changing and flat-out rad mountain bikes since 1993.
