Rocksolid guarantee

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. Whether you dream of singletrack, love riding your hometown trails, or are looking to get competitive in the local cross-country scene, the 951 XC is ready to roll. Stable geometry, similar to that used on the winning Sniper line, keeps the XC nimble in the corners, stiff on the climbs, and planted on the descents. An efficient SRAM 1x12 drivetrain delivers your power to the trail, while suspension from Fox keeps the ride smooth. Based on a light and strong carbon fibre frame, and outfitted with great components, this bike is a solid choice for riders of all skill levels.

  • Carbon frame is light, strong and stunning
  • Fox Rhythm 34 Float front fork equipped with the adjustable FIT Grip damper with both compression and rebound adjustments
  • Fox Float Performance rear shock has rebound adjustment and a 3-postion compression adjustment: open – for the rough stuff, trail – for your average trail riding, and lock-out – for climbing and speed on flats
  • JS Tuned rear linkage results in an efficient and balanced ride when climbing or descending
  • WTB ST i27 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 keep the velocity right where you want it
  • Tapered head tube shaves grams and improves stiffness
  • Intense cockpit includes a set of 760mm Recon bars
  • Internal routing prevents cable rattle and keeps them protected
  • Flack guards on the downtube and chainstay protects from rocks and chain slap
  • Fizik Alpaca X5 saddle is low on weight and high on comfort
  • 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
