Intense has released early detail on its 2018 range, which is available to pre-order now through Saddleback and will land with dealers from mid-August.

Here’s a full run-down of all five bikes including the M16, Carbine, Tracer, Primer and ACV:

M16 m16 green

The M16 is a world-class downhill racing machine and the latest evolution from the originator of the full-suspension 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.

These incredible development credentials translate to pure race performance and the M16 has been serving Intense Racing UK team riders Charlie Hatton and Joe Breeden very well indeed.

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

New M16 Sales Channels

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.

FRAMESET – £3,000
EXPERT – £4,500
PRO G – £6,000

 

Carbine carbine

For 2017, the new Carbine offers up a modern trail geometry, with longer reach for a more confidence-inspiring ride. 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. All this makes the new Carbine an uncompromising 29er enduro race machine. The bike also ushers in a new price point from Intense with the Carbine starting from £3,900.

Key Features

29” Tyres // 155mm Rear Travel // 160mm 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

FACTORY RED AND BLUE – £9,000
ELITE ANTHRACITE – £7,200

FOUNDATION ORANGE – £3,900 

Tracer intense tracer

The all-new second-generation Tracer is the latest addition to Intense’s complete line-up of carbon mountain bikes.

Three years in the making, the new Tracer has big shoes to fill with its predecessor being one of the brand’s most acclaimed, best-selling models to date and winner of the Interbike ‘Bike of the Year Award’ in 2014.

For 2018, the new bike offers up a modern trail geometry, with longer reach for a more confidence-inspiring ride. 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 to make the Tracer an uncompromising enduro race machine.

Key Features

Primer intense primer

The Primer delivers all the benefits of a 29er with the responsiveness of a 27.5. With aggressive geometry and the efficient JS Tuned platform, the Primer will completely change your mind on what a 29er is capable of. Equipped with short chain stays, a slack head angle, and a steeper seat tube, the Primer provides a balanced feel on the bike whether pointed up the mountain or back down the other side.

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

PRO IN BLACK – £6200
EXPERT IN BLUE – £3900

ACV intense acv pro

The new ACV (Air Cushioned Vehicle) is a specifically designed 27.5+ bike that was created out of a necessity for adventure. A wider 2.8-inch tyre offers ultimate traction climbing or descending any terrain, while the agile geometry and 130mm adjustable travel deliver supreme ride quality.

Fluctuating the tyre pressure between 12-25 PSI adds another level of ride preference to the ACV. More undamped suspension and sidewall grip at a lower PSI allows riders a smooth ascent through the rockiest of trails.

Key Features

27.5+” Tyres // 115-130mm Adjustable Rear Travel // 150mm Front Travel // Integrated BOOST 148 x 12 Dropouts // Internal Cable Routing // Internal Seat Tube Cable Routing for Dropper Post // Downtube and Chainstay Flack Guard Protection // Water Bottle Fitment
