A trail is only as good as the amount of shredding you do on it, and with Intense's Hard Eddie (Foundation Build), you're about to open up a whole new world of shredded trail. With a carbon monocoque frame as its spine, you know it's light, responsive, and stiff for anything the dirt throw your way. The Hard Eddie leads the way with an X-Fusion Trace RL fork up front, giving you 100mm of plush travel. Big 29-inch Sun Inferno wheels make rocks and roots mere afterthoughts, while grippy Maxxis Ikon tires ensure you bite into corners and rip up the steeps. The powerhouse of this ripper is the ever-reliable SRAM X7 drivetrain that gives you a wide range of gears for the climbs, the descents, and the bar-to-bar sprints. You'll be going so fast you might blow right by the podium, so slow it all down with Avid Elixir DB3 discs. On top of that, the Hard Eddie has only the toughest stuff out there, like an Intense handlebar, stem, and post topped with a WTB saddle.
