Intense Carbine 29 Foundation Bike 2015

Intense Carbine 29 Foundation Bike 2015

Built for a life spent conquering diverse terrain, the Intense Carbine 29 is a phenomenal long-travel 29er geared up for all-out trail domination. Intense put every effort into crafting a bike that is strong, agile, responsive, and lightweight, resulting in an Enduro King bent on ruling whatever the trail throws it's way. Rocks? More like, pebbles. Climbs? Piece of cake. Drops? Don't sweat it. Corners? Like a champ.

The Carbine 29 raises the bar on performance, technology, and beauty. The Carbine 29 offers aggressive geometry, patented VPP suspension, all the design benefits of Intense 2nd generation INTENSE carbon fiber, and the sleek, modern look Intense is known for. Designed to allow riders to descend the roughest enduro tracks with confidence, the bike boasts 5.5 inches (140mm) of rear wheel travel via the X-Fusion 02 RL Air shock, and 160mm of travel up front courtesy of the RockShox Pike RC 29" 160mm fork. The slacker head angle (67 degrees) and 51mm 29er-specific fork offset on the Carbine 29 work together to create a bike that delivers exceptional agility and improved handling. Fast, gnarly rock sections never felt so secure. Cornering was never as quick on a 29er. Let go of the brakes and take the rough line to the bottom. The Carbine 29 will allow you to ride hard, and ride fast.

Keeping even the smallest details in mind, Intense decked out the Carbine 29 Foundation 2015 with a serious compliment of cutting-edge technology. A full Shimano SLX 2x10 speed drivetrain delivers top notch pedaling performance that will keep you speeding down the trail with plenty of control and responsiveness. Powerful Shimano BLM506 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 Sun Ringle featuring Sun Inferno 27 tubeless ready rims laced to Intense Tuned alloy hubs for a ride that is bombproof and versatile. Intense chose to outfit the cockpit of the Carbine 29 Foundation with a WTB Volt Sport saddle, alloy Intense stem and Recon handlebar, and an Intense alloy seatpost, for a lightweight package centered on leverage and excellent control.

Nice Bike
Had the Bike for half a month and about 100miles on it.
VPP suspension works nice, with very high pedal efficiency.
Pike fork is the shining point of it, but for some people 160mm might be a little bit too long.
I do not like the X-Fusion rear shock, but for a carbon 29er Enduro race bike at such an attractive price you cannot ask for more.

Packaging and service is Amazing
Bike was so well packaged that it arrived without a single scratch! Perfect condition and only took about 30 mins to put together and the brakes and shifting was completely dialed in!

So happy with the purchase!

This is an awesome trail machine that will hold on to the trail even when you take the wrong line. The TR wheels and tires made it super simple to convert to tubeless in less than 30 minutes.
Love my new Intense Carbine, been tearing up the trails with my new get a way bike.
