Intense Bikes

Many consider the mid-’90s to be the era that kicked off American mountain bike racing, and Intense Bikes paved the way with their legendary M1 downhill race bike. 


With the creation of the M1, legendary athletes such as Shaun palmer, Leigh Donovan, and Michael Ronning podiumed so many times that other brands started running the same frame but with different decals. With so many large bike brands running the M1, it had to mean Intense found the winning formula. Today, Intense Bikes still creates and designs some of the best mountain bikes on the market, with a stacked World Cup team leading the way. Intense's deeply rooted history in bike racing means all Intense bikes are created with a passion and dedication to evolving the way we ride. So check our Intense bikes for sale today!

The 20mm less suspension over the Trail version is optimal for pedaling performance to out-climb the competition.
