VERSATILITY

The Primer trail bike is the most versatile model in our range. With 140mm of rear travel and 160mm up front, we have designed a bike that is capable and balanced but also nimble and fun at the same time, giving you confidence on long, all-day rides, jumps, or laps in your local woods.

TRUE TO TRAIL

The frame is the heart and soul of any bike. Our Primers are built around our perfectly designed monocoque carbon frame, with a dual-strut design rear triangle, optimized carbon fiber layup, a carbon top link, and adjustable 'Flip Chip" technology.

FLIP CHIP ADJUSTMENT

The Primer 29 has a 'Flip Chip' feature which allows you to alter your bike's geometry between two positions. The High setting is best in technical terrain, while the Low is more suitable for flow and bike park-style riding.

THE JS TUNED TRAIL LINK

We talk about JS Suspension a lot here at INTENSE. JS stands for Jeff Steber (our founder and CEO); simply put, it is a sophisticated suspension system that uses two counter-rotating links to connect the front and rear triangles of the bike. The links are precisely placed to separate the pedaling and braking forces from the suspension performance. Every model in our range has its own personal and specific JS tune.

ALL FULLY BUILT BIKES COME WITH A COMPLEMENTARY TOOL KIT, SO YOU CAN BUILD AND MAINTAIN YOUR BIKE.

The INTENSE Warranty covers the frame and parts so you don't have to worry about the hassle.
