Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


Named after the area code of Intense’s Southern California hometown, the 951 line taps into the reason we ride, it’s fun. The Trail is a do-it all mountain bike: shred with friends afterwork, ride weekend singletrack, and race the odd enduro (if you feel so bold). Confidence inspiring geometry and suspension from the wizards at Fox help smooth out the roughest trails. Getting to the top is never the fun part, but with an efficient SRAM 1x12 drivetrain, fire roads and climb trails become more bearable. A light, strong carbon fibre frame, and great components make it a solid choice for riders of all skill levels.

  • Carbon frame is light, strong and stunning
  • Fox Rhythm 36 Float front fork with adjustable FIT Grip damper with compression and rebound adjustments. 36mm stanchions and Boost axle are strong and stiff for extremely responsive handling
  • Fox Float X Performance rear shock is updated for 2022 with robust construction, low-speed compression and rebound adjustments on separate circuits (like the top of the line X2), and a 2-position lockout for climbing. And, there’s a Piggyback reservoir to smooth out big hits
  • JS Tuned rear linkage results in an efficient and balanced ride when climbing or descending
  • Flip chip lets you switch from an upright all-around riding position to a slack, descending-focused position
  • WTB ST i30 Aluminum wheels are tubeless ready and run on Intense hubs
  • 148x12mm spacing in the rear and 110x15mm in the front boosts stiffness
  • Kenda Regolith tires offers good grip and low rolling resistance in a variety of conditions
  • Intense Recon dropper is smooth and responsive (travel: 125mm (S), 150mm (M,L), and 170mm (XL))
  • 1x12 SRAM NX Eagle groupset leverages a massive PG Eagle 11-50 cassette
  • SRAM NX Eagle cranks are paired with a 32T ring to help flatten out the hills
  • TRP Slate T4 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes connected to 180mm rotor control the velocity
  • Tapered head tube shaves grams and improves stiffness
  • Cockpit includes a set of 780mm Recon bars
  • Internal routing prevents cable rattle and keeps them protected
  • Flack guards on the downtube, lower seattube and chainstays protect from rocks and chain slap
  • Light, comfortable Fizik Alpaca X5 saddle
  • 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
