The development of the Tazer took us right back to the first Intense bikes ever built. In the early ’90s, when founder Jeff Steber first rode an MTB, he immediately had dozens of ideas about changes and tweaks he could make to improve its performance. He incorporated these improvements into a totally new MTB design and Intense was born.
Over 25 years later, Jeff has taken what he’s learned from riding E-bikes and applied his own tweaks and innovations. His goal was to make an E-bike that doesn’t feel cumbersome, has a seamless pedal-to-power transition and delivers a true mountain bike ride experience on a par with the rest of the Intense collection.
That bike is the Tazer – more than an E-bike, it’s an Intense that just happens to have E-assist.
