The 2020 Carbine balances 29er speed with impeccable Trail manners thanks to an Enduro-focused geometry and 155mm travel that Provide lively, playful handling and big-hit capability. Proven with multiple EWS wins, the Carbine is most at home on rough, fast Trails where you'll get the biggest benefit from the 29" Wheels and maximum fun out of the longer travel.
The 2020 Carbine Expert offers a great balance of Enduro-ready performance and value with carefully selected components to give you an edge in your next Enduro.
When it comes to the frame, there's no second tier – the Carbine Expert uses our top-end frameset. That means full carbon uni-directional monocoque front and rear triangles as well as a full carbon top link, ti hardware, internal cabling and flack guards.
Your new Carbine will be tuned specifically for you by our own Intense Cycles UK mechanics so you can get straight onto the Trails and ride with confidence.
