About The ACV
Designed from the ground-up as new 27.5+ platform, the ACV (Air Cushioned Vehicle) was created out of a necessity for adventure. Don't be fooled – this is no blundering steamboat of a fat bike.
The ACV will defy your expectations with its ultimate uphill traction and climbing efficiency while the agile geometry turns the bike into a hooligan on descents, the added grip and sublime handling allowing you to seek out new lines beyond the limit of a 'normal' bike.
The plus-size tyres give you the chance to change the bike's characteristics depending on your ride, fluctuating the between 12-25 PSI to provide most undamped suspension and sidewall grip.
If you want a bike that'll eat up any terrain, reward you for exploring the limits, and leave you with a huge grin on your face, it's got to be the ACV.
All bikes come pre-built and tuned through Intense Cycles authorized mechanics and will arrive to you with minimum assembly.
