Intense have been at the forefront of mountain bike design and downhill racing since the early 90’s. A smaller brand, Intense are famed for being one of the only brands to still manufacture their frames in house at their California facility. This allows Intense to develop and refine products much faster than competitors, as the manufacturing facilities are at hand. Prototype frames can be created in only one day, producing an ideal breeding ground for new products and rigorous testing that ride better than any before!
Intense’s downhill pedigree has facilitated the creation of some exceptional riding machines in their trail and enduro bike categories, including the Tracer and Carbine. For 2017, the Tracer has undergone some minor changes with a longer reach and modern trail geometry giving the bike downhill performance and impressive climbing capability, creating the ultimate enduro machine.
