SPECS

The M-Series of downhill bikes have unrivaled history and race heritage. It is an unbroken chain of evolution, from the original M1 back in 1994 right through to our current offering, the M29. This latest incarnation is the culmination of over 25 years of development, testing, tweaking, honing, and perfecting. The M-Series has moved with the times, and we can confidently say that the M29 is the best downhill bike we have ever made. The 2019-2022 INTENSE M29 frame is not compatible with the 2021-2022 Fox DHX2 Coil and Fox Float X2 rear shock due to space constraints within the frame and the new shock shape. The M29 takes its place amongst the greatest bikes we have ever made. It is the perfect continuation of the M-Series, and it’s a bike that will carve its own niche in the history of downhill mountain biking. Whether racing or just riding, when you drop in on the M29, you’ll be in for one hell of a ride.

 

DEVELOPED ON THE WORLD CUP CIRCUIT

We made our first 29” wheeled downhill bike way back in 2009, but it wasn’t until 2017, as 29” downhill specific components began to appear, that things got serious. That year INTENSE team riders Jack Moir and Dean Lucas both scored exceptional second place World Cup finishes on prototype M29s… it was on.

DESIGNED FOR THE MOST DEMANDING

Big 29” wheels help to carry vast amounts of speed and momentum and flatten terrain, so it was an easy choice for us. But, of course, the beating heart of any bike is the frame. The M29 uses a specific carbon lay-up to create a structure that is stiff and strong but has give in all the right places. Meaning you get a bike that allows you to take razor-sharp lines on the track without getting beaten up or having a harsh ride, which is hugely important for a downhill bike.

PROGRESSIVE LEVERAGE RATIO

The shock orientation gives off a supple and sensitive ride that initially absorbs small bumps, then seamlessly moves into a supportive mid-stroke platform (which helps to maintain ride height) and finally into a controlled ramp-up towards bottom-out. All this translates into a predictable ride that offers plenty of support, can tackle anything, and gives an endless grip in all situations.

THE JS TUNED DOWNHILL LINK

We talk about JS Suspension a lot here at INTENSE. JS stands for Jeff Steber (our founder and CEO); simply put, it is a sophisticated suspension system that uses two counter-rotating links to connect the front and rear triangles of the bike. The links are precisely placed to separate the pedaling and braking forces from the suspension performance. Every model in our range has its own personal and specific JS tune.
