We’re very excited to see a new Tracer from Intense, after having a ton of fun on their Spider trail bike in both 27.5″ and 29″ iterations last year. Hopefully we’ll be able to get our hands on one soon, the geometry and suspension tweaks sound like real winners on paper. Read on for the official word from Intense.
Three years in the making, the new Tracer has big shoes to fill. Its predecessor was one of the brand’s most acclaimed, best-selling models to date and won the “Interbike Bike of the Year Award” in 2014.
For 2017, the new bike offers up a modern trail geometry, with longer reach and a full extra inch of wheelbase, for a more stable ride.
The JS Tuned suspension platform has been refined and offers an updated carbon top link, providing a stiffer package and more efficient pedaling platform.
The Tracer is available in five builds, and is also offered as a frame-only.
