Sniper

The Sniper is a ground-up, dedicated, hard peddling XC speed machine – available in two different travel models.

The Sniper XC features 100mm front and rear suspension while the Sniper Trail boasts 120mm. Short travel rigs should descend like their long-travel siblings and that’s what Intense has done. This is no twitchy XC bike: with the 29” wheels and progressive XC/Trail geometry, you get a stable ride that goes where you point it. Offered with a standard hardware package as well as a light weight SL package to shave some grams, the Sniper takes XC race and trail riding to the next level.

PRIMER

The Primer is the most versatile 29er in the world, delivering all the big-wheeled benefits of a 29er with the responsiveness of a 27.5.

The aggressive short-chainstay, slack-head-angle geometry mated with the ultra-efficient JS Tuned suspension platform will completely change your mind on what a 29er is capable of. Don't think 130mm of travel makes this a timid little number – it's as fast, efficient, playful and aggressive as they come – perfect for UK conditions. When you're looking for a machine that you can pedal on all day and hit tough descents without breaking a sweat, reach for the Primer.

ACV

The ACV (Air Cushioned Vehicle) is a specifically designed 27.5+ bike that was created out of a necessity for adventure.

A wider 2.8” tyre offers ultimate traction climbing or descending any terrain, while the agile geometry and 130mm rear, 150mm front travel deliver supreme ride quality. Fluctuating the tire 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 or slickest mud – perfect for UK conditions.

M16C

The Intense M16 is a world-class, downhill racing machine, evolved from the bike that started it all.

With 240mm rear / 200mm front travel and boasting geometry developed in conjunction with Intense Factory Racing Team riders Jack Moir, Dean Lucas, Charlie Harrison and Nik Nestoroff, as well as Intense test pilots Chris Kovarik, Claire Buchar, and Conor Macfarlane, it'a a thoroughbred racer through and through.
