An Enduro bike needs to do two things: eat-up mountainous terrain on the downhills, and climb back up to do it all again. With our new Tracer we believe we have made a bike that can do just that.

Borrowing design inspiration and technology from our M29 downhill bike, utilizing its bottom link driven rear shock and suspension design, we have created a bike with plush travel for the roughest of descents, and a firm pedal platform when needed. We’ve positioned the rear shock low down and centered in the frame, allowing the Tracer to descend and handle terrain impeccably.

The INTENSE Tracer 279 Enduro bike has been completely reengineered for 2022. With 170mm (6.7”) of travel and a staggered wheelset (29” front/ 27.5” rear), we have created a bike that is stable and capable while also fast, fun and agile.
