Watch your competition choke with anxiety when you roll up on the wildly fast Intense Carbine. With 155mm of rear travel,160mm up front, modern trail geometry, and a svelte carbon frame, you'll find yourself steamrolling enduro courses and railing local tracks with speed-boosting confidence. The Elite build gets you top-level components for the best blend of performance and value. Suspension components include the beastly RockShox Lyrik fork and Super Deluxe RC3 shock combo, and SRAM's XO1 Eagle/TruVativ Descendant Carbon drivetrain offers a huge gear range for blasting up, down, and over every type of trail imaginable. 30mm-wide Intense wheels laced to DT 350 hubs create a stable platform for the Maxxis 29 x 2.40 Minion DHR II tires, while SRAM Guide RS hydraulic disc brakes paired to 180mm rotors ensure you're in complete control at every turn.
