    New intense model coming, any guesses as to what?

    Intense Continues Forward Momentum, Announces New CEO and CFO - Press Releases - Vital MTB

    "...we will have a historic high level of inventory of our new bike which will be released in a couple of months from now."

    My guess is a longer travel "enduro" bike, like a 650b CF uzzi.

    Looking at their product lineup, they now list the Carbine, and the Carbine 275 under their bikes section of the website. While you can still backdoor to the Carbine SL, it's no longer a link under "The Bikes" menu. My personal hope would be something along the lines of the Santa Cruz 5010, which for Intense would be a 275 Carbine SL with adjustable travel in Carbon and aluminum options - aluminum would be the Spider 275?. Something like that would seem to jive with the quote about "historic high level of inventory of our new bike", as that would be a trail bike with a broader market appeal. But then that would be two bikes, right?

    Would also be cool to see an M9, with a carbon front triangle while we're talking wishlists.

    What's on your wish list for a new Intense bike? A departure from VPP?

    Intense has been behind the market as far as carbon bikes go.... most of the brand name companies already have full carbon DH bikes in their lineup. It's definitely time for a full carbon M9!

    Can you please explain to me why there is need for a carbon M9?
    It will be max. 2 pounds lighter but probably significantly more expensive. After a crash you won't be able to check yourself if you have damaged the structure. And because of all those 200 pound people that NEED to have a bike that is 100 grams lighter they can't really make it superlight, FRO light!

    Just FYI: GT went back to aluminum for their DH bike which didn't hurt the Athertons....I would rather say the opposite.

    I pretty sure its a SOLO/5010 125mm 650B, Fills the 650B hole nicley and 125mm to 150mm 650B trailbikes are the big sellers now. 150 is covered, anything bigger like 170+mm is a small market.

    I already leaked the new bike in another forum recently, but I'll say it again.

    Full suspension electric 650b fatbike. Get ready.

    We also changed materials and are now using aerospace-grade bamboo

    My vote is for a 650b SL replacement, longer top tube, internal routing, WiFi etc with aftermarket rear end for current SL signatories.

    M9 Carbon 275 - that is my bet. I would also like a 275 Uzzi. Aluminum is fine

    More carbon. Maybe a departure of vpp? That was the very first thing l thought of. I bet more off shore production. Its probably too expensive to keep it here which is a shame. Hopefully they get a better website that has lots of useful tech on things. And hopefully better customer service.

    According to the article on Bikeradar it is a carbon downhill bike with 27.5 wheels.

    Inside: Intense Cycles' California frame factory - BikeRadar

    "Steber promises a rash of new products moving forward, including a carbon downhill bike (that will likely be designed around 27.5in wheels). Intense will officially unveil the first fruit of that labor on March 17. We're unfortunately sworn to secrecy until then but from the looks of things, Intense fans will like where the company is headed."

    Departure from VPP might be possible. With the FSR patent expiring, I'm seeing a lot of new bikes becoming available with similar suspension setups (at least they look similar to me). I think they're happy with VPP though, and I believe that it also provides them with a beneficial relationship and bond to Santa Cruz. I read an article a while back about how Santa Cruz would send over new and prototype bikes for Intense to preview. Is that still the case Sam?

    You see all of the Euro bikes coming into the USA that are Horst Link (still can't call it FSR since they just bought the patent) so it is definitely open season for that suspension design now. Not sure Intense will go away from VPP, but the required long rear end on the Carbine 29 definitely shows some limitations. I think you will see several models from them including a carbon M9, Carbine 275 refresh with an outside shot at a 5010 like bike as well.

    As long as the frames are still US made. I live in Canada but nonetheless, everything under the sun being made overseas hurts both countries.

    I currently have no issues getting parts or service between my two favorite Intense dealers: Dunbar Cycles in Vancouver and Fanatic Fanatik Bike in upstate WA.

    Built in the U.S.A. With traditional Intense race color choice of red with yellow graphics. Offered in carbon and aluminum would be ideal.

    I'm going to put it out there and go with a carbon 'M' DH bike probably with 27.5" wheels, a WC level bike. But what I'd really like to see is a US made alloy trail bike, nice and light and whippy like the original FSR Tracers, can't see that happening to be fair...

    Other possibilities could be an Uzzi 275 with 160-180mm travel, that would be pretty unique and niche at the moment.

    An alloy 29" and 275 hard tail would be nice too, kind of like the new Yeti ARC in that they adjust the wheelsize according to the size of the frame/rider...

    I think it is gonna be a 120mm 27.5 bike and 100mm 29 bike both carbon offerings. They have been seeing some pressure because Santa Cruz has been moving super fast in releasing numerous frames over the last year.

    no one wants a 27.5 carbon 951. it would be way lighter then the m9. i think if they do come out with a carbon DH bike it wont be called an m9. it will be a total redesign from the ground up to rival the weight of the santa cruz v10. there is really no point in producing a dh bike thats heavy like the m9. i know many diehard m9 fans that have swapped to the v10 because the shave so much weight just from swapping frames.

    i can also see intense moving carbon production into a new us factory. i remember jeff saying a few years ago before the carbine came out that it was just to expensive to produce it in the USA. i think they can see some benefit now in trying to set up a full USA production line of carbon bikes. it would allow them that quick and rapid prototyping that they have always been famus for and it would keep them a US company.

    i can hope but we will have to see. i love intense and i am really hoping this keeps them at the forfront of the highend MTB industry

    Carbon 4x hardtail, in 26", in red (white/yellow highlights) or black pretty please.

    A lot of privateers used to use M3/6/9s but the widespread use of carbon in top dollar frames I believe has meant a move by some to the likes of SC/Devinci etc.

    Yeh, they're damn expensive, but that's half the appeal for some I think.

    edit:
    Not that I'm after a carbon dh bike myself or would be interested in one in the immediate future, but it's something that I've thought has been missing from their stable as a premium bike manufacturer.

    I agree this would be awesome, but I predict the new executives they hired will accelerate the shift to Asian-produced composite frames. They fly off the shelves at huge profit margins--that's what those types focus on.

    I think that the new Intense's beauty will be an enduro carbon frame like the Uzzi, with 650b size rim and more agressive geometry than Carbine and Tracer 275!

    I bet its going to be a higher end dedicated 27.5" carbon all mountain trail bike. The Carbine remember started life as a 26er. This new design will be more dialed and lighter!

    dont think so. the Carbine is pretty much the whole reason the company is where it is right now. that bikes not going anywhere. maybe a carbon 27.5 Uzzi type bike. my money is on a 27.5 Dh bike and maybe something like the 5010

    not a carbon dh bike. and the 951 and the m9 have both been out for 4 plus years now with little to no changes. i am talking about a complete redesign not just a swing arm change. Carbon frame, updated geo and something tht can be competitive on a world cup level track

    The new bike will replace current Carbine 275 and Tracer275, ie. it will be available in both carbon and alu version (as with most of SC bikes).

    The reason for the quite heavily marketed and aggressively priced Foundation builds of both current models is the launch of this new model (typical 'trick' from car industry when new model is coming...) You ditch the remaining stock just before the launch. with an attractive deal.

    Makes sense. I've seen a lot of those ads... There's one on the page as I type. I wonder what innovation a new model will bring? Tracer has always been on the money for a do-it-all bike. New suspension design?

    Well, I hope it's the Uzzi that get's the update.

    If not, I hope they at least update the website... still showing "new for 2012" for the Uzzi.

    They are already en-route to stores so the official release will be well timed with product availability. This is great news for smaller companies like Intense, it will help them stay competitive in an increasingly crowded market place.

    Got to be an Uzzi, it just makes so much sense, the world is waiting for a 650B long travel VPP bike...

    Possibly a shorter travel trail bike too, but I think I've already said this before?...

    Definitely cool that product release and availability will not be mutually exclusive moving forward.

    I'm thinking it will be a more mass appeal bike - that hits squarely in the "enduro" and 650b marketing craze - uzzi and DH are just a bit to niche for the larger market appeal - just my opinion of course - and if Intense is truly a new intense, with aspirations of global growth - something that builds upon their Tracer 275 or Carbine 275 lines would make the most sense...

    Altho - a well rounded 140mm option wouldnt be bad either...

    New intense model coming, any guesses as to what?

    So Intense are about to release a new model and Brian Lopes splits from Ibis. Hmmmm this could be interesting?!?...

    The new bikes didn't show up as expected. It looks like it could still be a wait...

    I'll say this though, the new paint job on the carbine is very nice. That yellow is pretty sweet!

    I get the feeling intense isn't going to be happy about their new frame being on display before the announcement on Monday..... I'm happy though!

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking. The Canadian distributor has a gag order on this frame until the 17th... My dealer can't even get any details.

    Hmmm.. just checked out the specs on Fanatik's website... 66.5 HA, 13.5 BB, internal cable routing... 150-160mm travel. A bit disappointed. I was hoping for a bit more of a Tracer/Uzzi mix with maybe 160-170mm travel, 65.5-66 HA rendered in carbon. I'm sure this frame is stellar but there's a lot of overlap in Intense's Trail/Enduro segment but nothing really stands out from each other?

    Well folks, looks like a few of you got lucky and benefited from a glitch on our website. Apologies to Intense, it was not our intent for that page to be live today. It has been fixed, and will not show again until Monday. That said, it is a fantastic bike and we can't wait to officially unveil it on Monday!

    For what it's worth

    Nailed it - geo tweaks look spot on, front and rear are beauty but man - that price is a bit proud??? Sorry - but gonna be hard pill to swallow when a really good alu tracer can be bought as a full bike for that - give or take a few shekels. But still. That would be my dream bike build!!

    Did anyone get a screen cap they can post here? What's the aesthetic difference between it and the Carbine?

    Essentially it looks like a beefier Carbine in raw/silver or raw/red, it has 150-160mm travel compared to the 140-150mm alloy version. It's lovely but I'd still rather have my hand made alloy one.

    It should have different geometry compared to the aluminum Tracer 275. Frame is looking fine but what about Intense Carbon build quality compared to Santa Cruz and Pivot?
    And how about the Monarch plus? I think the CCDBA CS is a bit too DH for a modern Trail bike, isn't it? So the Monarch may be the safer bet to go with.

    What a formidable bike, I like a lot.

    Glad to see Intense finally got a carbon 275 out there, well done.

    Love the promo video. Props to Intense.
