For all of you who hide behind your screens watching bike videos on YouTube, Intense Cycles went ahead and built you the Recluse Expert, with 140mm of trail taming RockShox Monarch Plus RC3 suspension, tough 27.5-inch DT Swiss wheels, and a playful 66-degree head angle. Now what could you do with this rad carbon bike? Well, first, you could ride it like you stole it, charging through chunder like a boss as you whip your way down flowing, twisting singletrack. Another option would be to set up a shuttle ride with some friends so you can take full advantage of the Recluse's optimized geometry, and shred downhill lines with supreme confidence thanks to the 150mm RockShox Pike RC fork, Reverb Stealth dropper post, roomy cockpit, and short chainstays. Or instead of hiding behind a screen, you could saddle up this all-mountain pony — with its dependable 11-speed drivetrain from Shimano and Race Face — to hide in the backcountry, knowing you have a bike that can take on anything an all-day epic can throw at you. So suit up, jump on, and get out there, kid. Your days of hiding away indoors are over.
