Product Info

Today, the trend in mountain bike design is towards machines that allow you to pedal the distance and get you back down while havin' a ton of fun. The Intense Cycles Primer 29C Foundation Bike does just that with a build that is perfect for the rider looking for speedy single track but likes the occasional steep technical trails. Intense has refined their 29'er with more aggressive geometry based around JS tuned suspension that yields a ride similar in performance to a 27.5. The full carbon frame noticeably reduces vibration transfer while the RockShox suspension and 29er wheels soak up small and large bumps in stride for a well composed ride. Experience all the benefits of a 29er with the responsiveness of a 27.5 - saddle up the Intense Cycles Primer 29C Foundation Complete Mountain Bike and let 'er buck!

RockShox Pike RC Boost ForkIt is the new-school all-mountain and enduro riders’ weapon of choice. It has received critical acclaim by the global mountain-bike media. It came out of the box and marched its way to an Enduro World Series overall title. And with good reason. PIKE was engineered to provide the plushest, most high-performance ride quality imaginable. Its Charger Damper with Rapid Recovery™ keeps you riding high in the travel, where the feel is plushest, and maintains your bike’s natural geometry. Its stiffness to weight to travel ratios are unbeatable, meaning you get a lot more from a lot less. Better control from fewer and more intuitive rider inputs allow you to charge harder. Which equals time and energy for more laps. If all-mountain riding and enduro racing is how you describe a good day in the saddle, then PIKE should be on your ride.
