Intense Recluse 27.5 Foundation Bike

Intense Recluse 27.5 Foundation Bike

skillfully crafted all mountain machine

Intense was forged from an accidental side project looming in the background of the 1980’s windsurfing scene. Like many early pioneers of cycling, founder Jeff Steber believed modern standards in mountain biking had a lot of room for improvement. Because of his need to create, the mtb community has been blessed with Intense cycling’s seemingly endless innovations for the past couple decades. Overhauling the industry’s outlook on suspension, geometry, and frame materials along the way, Intense has been a household name since the beginning. With classic names like Shaun Palmer representing their brand since the days of yore, it’s hard to deny Intense’s engineering prowess.

The Recluse is Intense’s latest all-mountain machine. Built to be light, nimble, and dependable in rough terrain, it’s hard to find an area of trail the bike doesn’t perform well in. Carbon fiber front and rear triangles utilize their latest suspension platform, the JS system, to provide plush travel and an optimal axle path. Complete with the SRAM GX group, the 1x drivetrain can take you wherever you want to go. A Race Face crank and Intense cockpit provide excellent handling and drivetrain efficiency. The Rockshox fork, shock, and dropper post give you the upper hand on any terrain. The Recluse is a bike you can conquer any trail on.

Features

  • Full carbon construction Features monocoque carbon front triangle
  • Internal cable routing Brakes, shifter, and dropper control all routed internally
  • Tapered head tube Saves weight and increases stiffness
  • Boost dropouts Integrated into fork and frame
  • SRAM 1x 11 speed drivetrain provides ample versatility

Worth every penny!!
Super fun to ride and the quite the conversation starter. The orange pink and blue just make this bike awesome to look at. Riding it is even better. Smooth peddling, nimble down hill, and climbing is almost effortless.
