    Come alive.

    For 2016, Intense's enraged, all-mountain Tracer 275C Mountain Bike Frame returns with no changes compared to the previous model. That's because today's Tracer represents the culmination of an exhaustive overhaul that added travel, slackened the head tube, and stretched the wheelbase for a longer, more aggressive geometry. It's an enduro beast that's built to come alive at high speeds and under gnarly conditions, but its stiff, lightweight carbon construction means it doesn't lie down in defeat as soon as the trail tilts up.

    While the carbon Tracer is a departure from the brand's made-in-the-USA alloy manufacturing, the domestic production ethos still stands thanks to the fact that all the links and hardware are built in Temecula, CA alongside Intense's aluminum models. This ensures that your bike benefits from the best of modern composite construction while maintaining the soul you'd expect from an Intense.

    As with the Carbine models, the Tracer's two carbon triangles are built as whole pieces rather than glued together from sub-assemblies. This method saves weight and increases structural integrity by allowing the engineers to wrap carbon continuously through and around key junctures. It also reinforces the frame with less material while eliminating the artificial stress points that result from bonded construction methods. Unlike the Carbines, the Tracer features a different blend of materials and a layup designed to drop grams, bringing the frame in under a claimed 5.5lb.

    As with the rest of Intense’s lineup, the Tracer 275C accepts a 31.6mm seatpost and stealth routing, making it compatible with almost any dropper post on the market. A high-direct front derailleur mount gives you multiple gearing options, as well as providing a solid mount for a top-only chainguide if you want added security with a one-by drivetrain.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Well... this was a fun bike to play around on. Fun bike when the terrain points down. You can't expect this to climb well, and I didn't... and well it doesn't. However considering it has 160mm of travel it went up just fine. I took it down the crest and back into park city via Canyons. Jumps made me feel like Evil Knievel. Berms made me feel like I was surfing the gnar and getting pitted. Real fun trail bike.

    Best bike in the Universe

      Intense Tracer 275 is by far the ultimate ride. Quick with those tubeless Vittoria tires. Smooth plush suspension now I got it dailed in. This thing hammers anything I give it.
      Special thanks to Brock Price for great customer service and getting it to me so quick i could have it for Easter weekend.
      Having been in the bicycle industry for many many years myself, it was refreshing to find great people even on internet mailorder. Great bike

      Hey Geoff,

      Glad to hear the bike is working out for you so far. The Tracer is indeed a fast bike.

      Thanks for the review. If there's anything further I can help with in the future feel free to reach out to me directly.

      Hi,
      I am interested in purchasing a new Intense Cycles bike, a current model, but read that Intense is no longer selling bikes through on-line dealers. Is this correct? Is Competitive Cyclist currrently an Intense Cycles authorized dealer with the intension to remain so? I just want to make sure that I'm buying through an authorized source to ensure that I can get after sales support, etc.

      Thank you.
      Rob

      Hi Rob....I havnt heard anything about Intense scaling back online. We are infact an Intense dealer so full warranties, ect would apply. Go direct with me for further questions or if you would like to get a custom bike quote from me.
