Intense Tracer 275 Foundation Bike

The Intense Tracer has been around for years, first in the form of the Tracer and then the Tracer 2. It just so happens that when it came time for another iteration of the legendary Tracer that 27.5” wheels were taking over the mountain bike scene – making it the perfect platform to introduce the new Tracer. This “Made in the USA” trail machine features Intense’s patented VPP suspension technology bringing smooth, reliable suspension to the all new Tracer 275. The 5 ½- 6” of adjustable travel allows this bike to adapt to your local trails – this bike is made to ride up, down, sideways, and everything in between. As with all Intense bikes, the Tracer 275 was designed with replaceable G1 dropouts to stay versatile with wheel options. The Intense Tracer 275 was built to eat up rocks and ruts, yet is nimble enough to safely navigate the twists and turns of the trail.

The Foundation build of the Tracer 275 aims to widen the reach of the Intense family. A more budget-conscious build kit, the Foundation keeps costs down while still maintaining a high standard of performance and durability. A SRAM S1000 triple crankset, SRAM PC-1031 10 speed chain, and Shimano HG62-10 cassette form the bones of the drivetrain and a combination of SRAM X7 and X9 components keeps shifting performance smooth and reliable. Avid DB-3 hydraulic disc brakes provide all the braking power needed to stop at a moment's notice. Sun Ringle Inferno 27 rims laced to Speed Tuned hubs keep you rolling fast and Kenda Negeval 2.35" tires offer substantial grip when cornering and climbing. An Intense branded, alloy cockpit puts the finishing touches on this stellar build for a ride that's ready to push the limits all day long.

              Comments about Intense Cycles Intense Tracer 275 Foundation Bike:

              I have only about 100 miles on my Tracer 275 thus far, but so far I am in love. On my scales it tipped in at just over 31 lbs which is not bad. The bike is stout, good looking, has a made in the USA frame and comes with solid components. The Xfusion fork and shock caught me off guard how good they are, the Sweep fork is very smooth through it's travel and soaks up things that would tie up my old Specialized Hardtail. The 275 really seems to love speed and is admittedly, better than I am at the moment. Avid brakes are strong, however mine have a bit more lever travel than I like, which I still need to adjust. Overall, I am super pleased!

                    The choice was clear when Intense came out with this
                    build.The 650b version of the Tracer does not disappoint.If you think 31lbs. is a weight penalty for climbing, think again. Climbs great,descends even better. Just a nimble as a 26er but perhaps more compliant in the rough stuff.The terrain that used to send me over the bars I can now glide over.
                    This hand made gem is also nice to look at.
