About The Tracer
Three years in the making, the Tracer offers modern, aggressive trail geometry with a longer reach for a confidence-inspiring ride that eats up the toughest enduro stages.
When it came to redesigning the Tracer and bringing the bike up to date with the needs of the growing enduro scene, Intense founder Jeff Steber worked with legendary bike engineer Cesar Rojo on the geometry and JS Tuned enduro link suspension. The result is a bike that’s efficient and agile on the climbs and a monster on the descents.
The Tracer 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.
So, whether you’re taking the Tracer for a blast around your local woods, a weekend in Wales or even a trip to the Alps, you’ll be grinning from ear to ear from the moment you throw a leg over it.
