Intense's Primer delivers all the benefits of a twenty-niner with the responsiveness of a two seven five. The Primer's dialed geometry and 115mm-130mm of adjustable travel come together to create a magical ride that's part XC rocket, part aggressive trail bike, and a whole lot of fun ripping across miles of singletrack. Intense founder Jeff Steber tweaked the VPP suspension design for sure-footed stability when it's time to drop the hammer. The Primer adheres to modern rider preference with a longer front center, short chainstays, slack head angle, and steeper seat tube, providing a little more room in the cockpit and tons of control for blasting through rough sections of trail. These slight changes to frame design, combined with Boost axle spacing, allow for the use of wider tires and more lateral stiffness—two improvements that'll help you rail tight turns and clean technical lines like never before. The Primer Factory Build starts off right with Fox Factory suspension components for the ultimate in custom tuning options. The Factory 34 Float fork is stiff and light, and the Factory Float SV EVOL shock has an extra large canister to eliminate stiction and tame big hits. SRAM XX1 Eagle provides premium stop-and-go bits, giving you the extended range you need to set records on every ride and keep overall weight fabulously light.
