Intense Carbine 29 XT Jenson Bike 2015

Intense Carbine 29" Jenson XT Bike

A true all-mountain machine. 29er style.

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. It 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 of rear wheel travel and 160mm of travel up front. The slacker head angle (67 degrees) and 51mm 29er-specific fork offset on the 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.


  • Intense Carbine 29 Full Mountain Carbon with VPP suspension technology, internal derailleur, brake & dropper post routing.
  • 160mm Rockshox Pike RCT3 designed with the new-school trail bombers in mind.
  • Shimano XT M8000 drivetrain and brakes deliver the best in performance, reliability and value.
  • Race Face Turbine 29” Wheels are tubeless compatible, and a hard working no-nonsense set of hoops.

Buy This Bike!
Uphill, downhill, flat, rolly, technical, you name it. Bike is sooo fast. I'm a retired pro dh racer from the golden days and have owned somewhere in the range of 25 bikes over the past 25 years.
Stepped up to the carbine from a 2015 Specialized Carbon EVO Expert 650B and thought I would trip on the 29"feel. So I did the ultimate test (to me) the other day and rode some super steep technical drops and it handled like a champ. Which reminds me how much I like the dropper post on this build. WAY better having 4" of variable adjustment in lieu of 3 settings like the Specialized post.

All the bike most mtb'ers will ever need

Everything I expected and more
Excellent service from JensonUSA. I paid for the full assembly and the bike arrived quickly with very minimal final assembly left. Everything was torqued to spec and greased. After 10 minutes of assembly and adjustments (seat and handlebars) I was able to take it out.

All around excellent bike for Moab or about anywhere else!!!
I bought my Carbine 29 XT Jenson 2 months ago and I've put more than 400 miles on it from granite slabs, technical reds and black, flowy single track, dirt roads, etc. . I just added another 70 Moab miles last weekend including the Whole Enchilada. So far the bike has performed amazingly and I have no regrets in buying it.

Fast rolling - like unbelievably fast - even with the 2.4" tires it rolls faster than my friend's carbon XC Cannondale HT
Climbs decently
Good geometry increases confidence on steep technical downhills
Nimble in turns and getting over technical sections
XT build includes great brakes with good lever feel
Lots of travel with great Pike and Monarch shocks
Strong wheel set
Nice dropper
Good tires (although the nobs on my rear tire are about toast)
Quiet ride - no squeaks or rattles to speak of makes the ride more enjoyable (other riders and animals probably won't hear you coming)
Orange paint job and proper logo badge are sweet
Wheels converted to tubeless easily
Protective rubber section on bottom bracket is good
Good amount of bottom bracket and crank clearance off the ground
Internal cable routing
Carbon frame

No lockout on rear shock
Can't pedal backwards more than 1/2 turn in biggest cog
Dropper cable is routed down the downtube and then goes in to the frame even though there's a place for internal routing
Grips could be better
If you like to spin on climbs the 32T chainring might be too much (will make you stronger though)
No bottle cage bolts
XT 6800 shifter adjust screw is sensitive and hard to get dialed in on the trail if you need to adjust on the fly
