Product Details

2017 Intense Cycles Primer Foundation

Intense's Primer delivers all the benefits of a twenty-niner with the responsiveness of a two seven five. The Primer's dialed geometry and 115mm-130mm of adjustable travel come together to create a magical ride that's part XC rocket, part aggressive trail bike, and a whole lot of fun ripping across miles of singletrack. Intense founder Jeff Steber tweaked the VPP suspension design to ensure sure-footed stability when it's time to drop the hammer. The Primer adheres to modern rider preference with a longer front center, short chainstays, slack head angle, and steeper seat tube, providing a little more room in the cockpit and tons of control for blasting through rough sections of trail. These slight changes to frame design, combined with Boost axle spacing, allow for the use of wider tires and more lateral stiffness—two improvements that'll help you rail tight turns and clean technical lines like never before. The Primer Foundation Build makes jumping into the world of carbon-framed trail bikes a little less intimidating with a smart mix of parts and components. The SRAM NX/GX 1x drivetrain paired with the solid-performing Race Face Aeffect crankset provide efficient power transmission, and the lauded RockShox Pike RC fork and Monarch R Debonair shock combo offer performance capabilities you'll love.
