Intense's 951 EVO (Gravity Build) takes the storied history of Intense downhill bikes and combines it with all the advantages of 27.5-inch wheels to create a pure race-ready gravity sled. The aluminum frame features a slack 62.5-degree head angle to fully harness the ludicrous speed afforded by the balanced VPP suspension that keeps you floating above the gnar. That sweet rear end is controlled by a Cane Creek Double Barrel Coil shock with 215mm of plush travel so you can charge any track with confidence. Up front, a Fox 40 Float RC2 fork takes on rocks and roots with 200mm of trail-smoothing travel. You'll notice more speed as a result of the 27.5-inch Stan's wheels that roll over holes, while Maxxis tires bite into corners with uncompromising tenacity. What could make this gravity-focused rig even better? How about a Shimano Zee drivetrain that shifts smoothly even when pinballing through rocks? Speed may be the name of the game, but control is vital too, so Shimano Zee brakes are on the case, modulating your speed. The finer accents all lend themselves to even more strength, like the Thomson Elite seatpost, the Renthal stem, and the wide FSA Gravity Light handlebars. The future is about to go down; be ready with the 951 EVO.
