The Intense Tracer 27. 5 Carbon Expert Complete Mountain Bike represents much of what sets the modern generation of trail bikes above those that came before. The beautiful carbon fiber frame takes full advantage of Intense's pedigree, with aggressive geometry and finely tuned VPP suspension. It's a fitting foundation for the Shimano XT build kit and Stan's NoTubes wheelset, which, much like the frame, are incredibly tough, despite their light weight.
