Intense Bikes are a bicycle brand based out of Temecula, California. The brand started in 1994. Intense started in downhill with their first bicycle framed called the M-1. Over the lifetime of the brand, they have been able to redefine their suspension to make their M series one of the most desired downhill bicycles on the world. With Shawn Palmer on their team, they were able to win multiple races and get the brand out as a solid name in the big hit and enduro world. Intense is one of the few brands that still produces their aluminum frames here in the US.
“There are dozens of MTB brands on the market but only a handful of authentic MTB brands, Intense is one of them. We have a heritage of race history and from the beginning we have pushed boundaries, whether on the track or off. We design and build bikes that evoke an emotional response and we curate a community of fans that are Intense For Life.” – Andrew Van Zuygen – Intense Regional Sales Manager
