This item is currently not available.


The INTENSE Carbine combines up-to-date longer-reach geometry with fast-rolling 29" wheels that give confident handling and help smooth the roughest terrain. The Carbine also boasts our JS Tuned "enduro link" suspension (155mm rear, 160mm front), which has been developed with longer links, as well as a carbon upper link to optimize leverage curve, axle path, and overall performance.

With the Carbine Elite Build, we have carefully selected and tested each component to provide an exceptional ride experience at an aggressive price.

- Carbine 29" Optimized Layup Monocoque UD Carbon Front and Rear Triangle
- Fox Factory Float 36 fork
- Fox Factory Float X2 shock
- SRAM X01 Eagle drivetrain w/Tru-Vativ Descendant carbon cranks
- E*thirteen LG1 Enduro Race Carbon wheels
- Shimano XT M8020 hydraulic disc brakes

A dropper seatpost allows you to quickly lower and raise your seat to give you an ideal riding position. Dropping your seat creates a lower center of gravity for better control and maneuverability on steep descents, while raising it puts you at normal riding height for efficient pedaling.

Construction can include either hydraulic- or cable-actuated systems and the post’s travel can either be infinitely adjustable or stopped at set intervals, depending on the model.

Dropper seatposts come in standard lengths and diameters and vary by the amount of travel.
