Intense Carbine 275 X01 Bike

With legions of riders singing the praises of the 27.5" wheel platform, the Intense Carbine 275 is destined to draw in the multitudes with its exceptional design and functionality. The 27.5" whee lsize offers the best of both worlds with its ability to clear obstacles in a way that is reminiscent of the 29er platform, plus an added knack for quick handling and agility that will keep 26" devotees satisfied as well.

The production of the Carbine frame is a result of a collaboration between Intense and German engineering firm, SEED. Intense sought out SEED to tap into their expansive expertise in carbon fiber manufacturing, for a bike that Intense designer, Jeff Steber, considers the best of two worlds: American design and German Engineering. The result of this collaboration is a bicycle that is exceptionally precise, dialed, and beautiful yet packed with all the snarl, shred, and attitude Intense is known for.

When Intense decided to venture into 27.5" territory, designer Jeff Steber figured out that with a simple dropout change Intense could morph their incredibly popular Carbine 26" in a 27.5" frame. This transformation is made possible by Intense's G1 replaceable dropout system. The G1 is featured on all of Intense frames and offers flexible future compatibility and accommodation of different axle choices. After an initial test run with the swapped dropouts, Intense continued to refine the Carbine 275, leading to a bike that is far more than a conversion, but a full-blown dedicated 27.5" frame with proper travel and aggressive 27.5" geometry.

The Carbine 27.5 boasts aggressive geometry, patented VPP suspension, all the design benefits of Intense 2nd generation INTENSE carbon fiber, and a sleek, modern look that screams Intense. Designed to allow riders to descend the roughest enduro tracks with confidence, the bike boasts 5.5 inches (adjustable to 6") of rear wheel travel via the Fox Float CTD (with Kashima Coat) shock, and 160mm of travel up front courtesy of the RockShox Pike Solo Air fork.

Keeping even the smallest details in mind, Intense outfitted the Carbine 27.5 with a serious compliment of cutting-edge technology like internal cable routing, Reverb Stealth seat post routing, and ISCG 05 chain guide tabs. A full SRAM X01 1x11 speed drivetrain delivers top notch pedaling performance that will keep you speeding down the trail with plenty of control and responsiveness. Though this complete build comes set up with a 1x11 drivetrain, the Carbine features a direct mount front derailleur mount that can accommodate a range of drivetrain expansion options. Powerful Avid Elixir Trail 9 hydraulic brakes give you the goods to stop on a dime when needed and offer nuanced control for modulating speed on technical descents. The Carbine rolls easy on a rock-solid set of wheels by Novatec featuring Diablo 27.5 tubeless ready rims laced to a D881SB hub in the front and a D882SB in the rear for a ride that is bombproof and versatile. A RockShox Reverb Stealth seat post provides simple and convenient control of seatpost height for adjusting saddle position on-the-fly as terrain changes. Intense chose to round out the cockpit of the Carbine 27.5 with an Intense branded saddle, Thompson Elite X4 stem, and FSA SL-K Carbon handlebar for a lightweight package centered on leverage and excellent control. This exceptional build from Intense all weighs in at 28lbs 5 oz (Medium), straight out of the box.

        Comments about Intense Cycles Intense Carbine 275 Pro X01 Bike 2014:

        Very capable bike, for long climbing I have to use all my effort to complete, but a friend told me the tires are so heavy and the tread is so aggressive for the kind of trails I use to ride in Puerto Rico. I will make some adjustments, changing tires and maybe a new set of wheelset.
