Watch your competition choke with anxiety when you roll up on the wildly fast Intense Carbine. With 155mm of rear travel, 160mm up front, modern trail geometry, and a svelte carbon frame, you'll find yourself steamrolling enduro courses and railing local tracks with speed-boosting confidence. The Foundation build brings a high-caliber bike to the masses with a more pocket-friendly spec. RockShox suspension components include a Yari fork and Deluxe RT3 shock combo, and SRAM's value-packed 11-speed NX Eagle drivetrain offers quick shifting for blasting up, down, and over every type of trail imaginable. 30mm wide Race Face AR wheels create a stable platform for the Maxxis 29 x 2.30 Highroller II tires, while Shimano hydraulic disc brakes paired to 180mm rotors ensure you're in complete control at every turn.
