The original Tracer was already a proven winner - but as it turns out, there is always room for improvement. Intense has tweaked, tuned, and re-invented the Tracer and the result is the all-new Tracer 2 frame for 2011. It builds on the original Tracer design and adds:
  • a stiffer, asymmetrical rear end
  • improved geometry
  • integrated cable routing for a "dropper" (i.e. Joplin or similar) seatpost

TECH SPECS
  • Adjustable travel 5.75”-6.25” (145mm-160mm), easily set at the upper link
  • Wide range geometry settings for aggressive trail or fast XC riding
  • Fox RP23 rear shock
  • Full 1.5" head tube to accommodate all steerer and headset options available
  • ISCG-05 integrated into fully machined BB shell
  • World Cup, National, and World Championship winning VPP suspension platform
  • NEW Improved bearings with EZ-lock binder-bolt main pivot system
  • NEW Rear dropout mount system accepts 142x12 OR standard 135QR dropouts
  • NEW Threaded, replaceable zerk grease fittings
  • NEW Redesigned yoke & lower link machining for added rigidity and strength
  • NEW Redesigned proprietary hydroformed downtube reduces weight and adds strength
  • NEW 8.5" x 2.5" FOX RP23 shock damper spec
  • NEW Machined ‘boxbrace’ seatstay bridge adds swingarm rigidity for a far more stable ride
  • Handmade at Intenses southern California factory in Temecula
Weight (medium): 7.9 lbs (powdercoated, including shock seat clamp, and axle)

Rear shock issues

Comments about Intense Cycles Intense Tracer 2 Frame:

Rear Fox CTD Kashima shock that came with the 2013 Tracer 2 broke in half at the threads of the canister on 1st ride. Luckily, Fox rushed out a replacement but the replacement also met the same fate. Fox is saying that Intense is stocking the wrong shock (boost value tune 175), no word yet from Intense. No one at the shop seems to be able to figure out the issue either. Find something else until Intense gets they act together.

    Comments about Intense Cycles Intense Tracer 2 Frame:

    Just moved to Vancouver, so I figured I could use a bigger bike than my 130 mm XC bike to ride the Shore and Whistler. So far so good.

    I keep the frame in 160 mm mode for more DH oriented rides. Super plush, precise, very confidence inspiring.

    For general trail riding, I use the 145 mm mode for a firmer feel. Awesome there too, holds traction very well on climbs and descents. Can barely notice the extra weight.

    I can't really compare to other frames in the category, but being on the Tracer, I don't notice anything which would make me want to try another frame. It's the perfect ride for me!

    A very nice and great performing bike but really is oriented towards more aggressive AM rather than the Trail side of AM. Heavy duty and feels unbreakable with truly outstanding suspension performance on high speed technical descents.
