A downhill inspired XC bike might sound conflicting, but at Intense, it's reality. With more aggressive geometry than traditional XC race rigs, the Sniper lineup provides more stability at speed and down demanding race courses and trail networks. The Sniper is setting the benchmark for lightweight frames that offer confidence inspiring geometry and peak pedal efficiency. The Sniper rewards fitness on long epic rides/races while allowing you to conserve energy on technical terrain or downhills.
The Sniper XC Expert build offers performance level components at an aggressive price point. Key standouts are Fox Performance suspension, a 12-speed NX Drivetrain, and a lightweight Stans Crest wheelset.
All bikes come pre-built and tuned through Intense Cycles authorized mechanics and will arrive to you with minimum assembly.
Included with each complete bike is an Intense Cycles branded torque wrench set and shock pump, precision tools to keep your new bike in peak performance.
