We made our first 29" wheeled downhill bike way back in 2009, but it wasnt until 2017, as 29" downhill specific componenets began to appear, that things got serious. That year INTENSE team riders Jack Moir Lucas both scored exceptional second place World Cup finishes on prototype M29s... it was on. Since then the new M29 has been raced by our INTENSE Factory Racing (IFR) team on the toughest tracks in the world. IFR Junior team rider Seth Sherlock took first place at the 2019 Lenzerheide World Cup in Switzerland, as well as claiming the Canadian National Championships title. Neko Mulally also won National Championships title, this time in the US, and Aaron Gwin took the M29 to the World Cup podium. The team continues to work closely with us here at INTENSE on the ongoing development of our bikes and exciting future projects.
