It only takes a quick glance to see that Intense's Carbine 29 (Expert Build) has the guts of a champion. Sit astride the full carbon monocoque frame with VPP suspension and 125-140mm of adjustable travel courtesy of the RockShox Monarch shock and you'll start to understand what makes this trail shredder so pinned. Up front, the legend in suspension, RockShox's Pike RCT3, soaks up the big hits and small chatter with equal ease thanks to its 160mm of plush travel. All that squish comes in handy when you're rolling on Stan's NoTubes 29-inch wheels with properly wide High Roller tires that annihilate rocks and roots. To add to the speed, Shimano's got you covered with an XT drivetrain that glides smoothly into the right gear for the climbs, the flats, and the descents. Speaking of descents, make sure you're in the perfect body position to get extra zesty with Kind Shock's LEV Integra dropper post. Like we said, it just takes a quick glance.
