The M9 is the legacy of our brand.
It exemplifies our company and represents our heritage. It shows us who we are and how far we’ve come.
It’s early predecessor, the M-1, was ridden to silver medal victory at the World Championships in 1996 by Shaun Palmer at one of his first competitive events on a bicycle, making history for both Palmer & Intense.The dynamic combination of Palmer and the M1 set the stage for Intense Cycles and changed the face of DH forever.
Since then, the M-series downhill chassis has achieved iconic standing as the choice of the world’s fastest racers.
The M-9 is the latest edition in the series and is the culmination of over 15 years of racer feedback, R&D and evolution in technology. The M9 has held true to its original DNA in being the first downhill specific race frame that can be tweaked and tuned to tame any track, it will make you a faster, smoother, more confident rider. Period.
The bike that has defined our brand for so many years just keeps getting better.
