2014 Intense Tracer T275 Carbon

If you’re considering an upgrade this year for an all-mountain/trail bike, then you’ll find yourself very spoilt for choice, as new bikes become available from many manufacturers and designers, already Specialized have announced new Stumpjumpers with 27.5"… er sorry Specialized, I forgot… 650b wheels to join bikes already available from Giant and Trek.

However, if you are looking for something a little different… here is the 2014 Intense Tracer T275 Carbon.

Intense have licensed the Santa Cruz VPP2 suspension design, which continues to gather a lot of accolades, so you know they are serious about the performance of the Tracer T275. For 2014 they suspension has gained an extra 10mm of travel to 160mm, though it can be set to 145mm. There is internal cable routing on the carbon frame and comes with a Rock Shox Stealth Reverb adjustable seat post and it’s now 27.5” dedicated, unlike previous models, where it was optional between 27.5" and 26”.

Intense will be offering complete builds or frame only options.

Intense rider Chris Kovarik has been putting the Tracer T275 Carbon through it’s paces in Australia before he begins his 2014 racing campaign, I understand he’ll be attending as many Enduro World Series races as possible though his primary focus will be the UCI World Cup Downhill events.
