Intense Spider 29 Comp XT Novatec Bike

The Spider 29 Comp is the fourth in Intense’s lineup of carbon fiber mountain bike frames, designed specifically for the cross country and light trail riding. The Spider 29 features some goodies that Intense is known for including adjustable 4.5-5” travel, G1 dropout system, and their patented VPP rear suspension technology. To sweeten the deal, the Spider 29 Comp also features internal cable routing, a tapered head tube, and special internal cable routing for the RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post.

With modern trail geometry and the VPP suspension, the Spider 29 Comp is your do everything bike. VPP suspension balances forces to eliminate unwanted compression. VPP bikes use a patented link configuration and axle path to apply some of the pulling force from the chain to counteract the motion caused by pedaling.VPP suspension is plush and features minimal “pedal- bob.”

This particular XT build is sitting on Novatec Flow Trail 29 wheels which feature a Tubeless Ready profile so you can easily convert to tubeless and never have to worry about pinch flatting again. The wheels come with 15mm thru axle front and a 12x142mm rear axle, and thanks to Novatec’s 4in1 hubs, they can easily be converted from QR, 10mm, 15mm and 20mm by changing out an end cap (end caps not included). The rims feature a sleeved joint, which is stronger than a welded joint, making this a solid and versatile wheelset for a solid and versatile bike.

The Fox suspension and Shimano XT brakes and drivetrain further incentivize this offering. The Intense Spider 29 Comp comes with a Fox 32 CTD Factory Series fork and Fox Factory Float CTD rear shock. CTD (Climb, Trail, and Descend) allows you to micro-adjust your suspension while on the trail. The Kashima coat provides buttery smooth suspension which you’ll notice and appreciate as you speed through bumpy sections.

The Shimano XT drivetrain offers a reliable 3x10 drivetrain featuring a Shadow+ rear derailleur with clutch technology which will help with chain slap on exceptionally rough terrain. Once you’ve reached the peak of your climb, slide your CTD suspension over to Descend mode and fly down the back side, knowing your Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes will bring you to a nice, steady halt.

Independent Reviews

The Spider 29 Comp, like most Intense bikes, has adjustable travel. Even in the longer-travel, 5-inch setting, with the FOX CTD rear shock set wide open in Descend mode, the bike ascended crisply in every chainring. I briefly switched the shock to the stiffer Trail setting, but that only reduced traction—the VPP suspension is so good that it’s best to minimize the shock’s platform damping
