Intense M16 Bike 2016
We've all heard the saying, "Learn from your mistakes!" But what about learning from your successes? Looking at the history of Intense's M series, you'd be quick to notice it's decorated past and proven progression of elite level downhill race machines. Ultimately, you'd be able to see that the M16 is the latest result of Intense learning from its M series success of yesteryear.
Designed with an insistent geometry, plenty of travel, and the perfect 27.5" wheel size, the M16's talent lay in today's World Cup race scene. Sculpted to trim milliseconds, the M16 features VPP (Virtual Pivot Point) suspension to rid the rig of unnecessary compression without compromising bump absorption. The finished product gushes plush travel for more control, which therein equates to more speed.
Without any shortage of adjustability, the M16 allows you dial in the bike depending on what the run is looking like for the day. With 8.5 to 9.5 inches (215mm €“ 240mm) of travel via Can Creek Double Barrel Coil rear shock, and its gravity-tuned geometry, technical descents will become your playground in a hurry.
To provide the required muscle for taking on rock gardens and massive roots, Hydroformed Alloy is the frame material of choice, meaning its constructed right here in the USA.
