Over the years, the Intense Tracer has seen its fair share of updates. First there was the Tracer proper, an excellent trail bike that was beloved by many for over a decade. Next, there was the Tracer 2 which slightly increased the travel and adjusted the geometry to accommodate their VPP suspension system. Then the 650b platform was brought to their legendary trail bike in the form of the Tracer 275. The last update was the most evolutionary step in the Tracer’s taxonomy, in the shape of the Tracer T275 Carbon which paired a new, more aggressive geometry with the performance, technology, and beauty of carbon fiber. Now, that very same design and geometry that quickly gave the Tracer T275 Carbon its reputation as the most sought after Trail bike on the market, has been poured into the Tracer T275 Alloy.
The new Tracer T275 Alloy from Intense Cycles integrates the latest in trail bike innovation into the Tracer Full Mountain Alloy frame. Building upon the venerable reputation of several previous variations of the alloy Tracer, the 2016 T275 Alloy propels the Tracer name to new heights. Boasting an aggressive geometry design, 5.5-6 inches of adjustable travel, and the precision of Intense's VPP suspension technology, the Tracer T275 Alloy is poised to devour rock gardens, carve up singletrack, and attack climbs like no other, leaving nothing but a cloud of dust in its wake.
The 27.5" wheel size offers the best of both worlds with its ability to clear obstacles in a way that is reminiscent of the 29er platform, plus an added knack for quick handling and agility that will keep 26" devotees satisfied as well. With modern trail geometry and the VPP suspension, the Tracer T275 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, offering a plush ride with minimal “pedal- bob”.
The Intense Tracer 275A Foundation build is handsomely executed using a X-Fusion Sweep RL2 27.5” fork with 160mm of travel and a Rock Shox Monarch Plus R Debonair rear shock. The Shimano SLX/Deore drivetrain includes a set of Shimano Deore 10 speed trigger shifters, SLX rear derailleur, 10-36T 10 speed cassette, and Deore cranks. These components work hard at driving rider generated power to the Sun Helix wheelset wrapped in Maxxis High Roller rubber front and rear. WTB and Intense components dominate the cockpit making the Intense 275A Foundation one of the most capable mountain bikes on the market.
