Intense unveils complete 2018 range

Intense has unveiled its 2018 range, which is available to pre-order now through Saddleback.

M16


The M16 is a downhill racing bike and the latest evolution from DH bike. Specced with 9.5-inches of rear travel and available in a carbon or alloy chassis, the bike’s geometry was developed in conjunction with Intense Factory Racing Team riders Bernat Guardia, Jack Moir and Ferran Jorba, as well as Intense test pilots Chris Kovarik, Shaun Palmer and Claire Buchar.

As well as new colour ways, there is also a new sales strategy for the M16. Consumers can now order through the Intense Cycles website and collect at their preferred local Intense dealer and all at a lower price point.

Key Features

27.5” Tyres // 240mm Rear Travel // 200mm Front Travel // World Cup tested geometry // 157x12mm rear spacing // Custom carbon protectives and bottom bracket frame stays and mud guard // 3-year limited warranty

Carbine


For 2017, the new Carbine offers up a modern trail geometry, with longer reach. The JS Tuned suspension ‘enduro link’ has been developed and refined, offering longer links  –including a carbon upper link ­– to optimise leverage curve, axle path and overall performance. The bike also ushers in a new price point from Intense with the Carbine starting from £3900.

For 2018, the bike offers up a modern trail geometry, with longer reach. The JS Tuned suspension ‘enduro link’ has been developed and refined, offering longer links – including a carbon upper link – to optimise leverage, curve, axle path and overall performance.

Primer

The Primer delivers all the benefits of a 29er with the responsiveness of a 27.5. The bike sports aggressive geometry and the efficient JS Tuned platform, and is equipped with short chain stays, a slack head angle and a steeper seat tube.

Key Features
29” Tyres // 115-130mm Adjustable Rear Travel // 130mm Front Travel // Integrated BOOST 148 x 12 Dropouts // Internal Cable Routing // Internal Seat Tube Cable Routing for Dropper Post // Water Bottle Fitment // Downtube and Chainstay Flack Guard Protection

ACV


The new ACV – or Air Cushioned Vehicle ­– is a specifically designed 27.5+ bike that was created for adventure riding. A wider 2.8-inch tyre offers optimum traction climbing or descending any terrain, while the agile geometry and 130mm adjustable travel deliver improved ride quality. Fluctuating the tyre pressure between 12-25 PSI adds another level of ride preference to the ACV. More un-dampened suspension and sidewall grip at a lower PSI allows riders a smooth ascent through trails.
