The Sniper Trail Pro gives you a top-spec fast trail riding experience that'll keep your honing your speed run after run from dawn til dusk. With a pro-level spec, confident handling and a lightweight platform, the Sniper Pro is perfect for riders who love to hit technical climbs as much as exhilarating descents.
The SL frame of the Sniper Trail Pro is the lightest version we make and features full uni-directional carbon monocoque front and rear triangles, a carbon top link and a magnesium lower link. and an alloy top link. The whole bike weighs in at less than 25lbs in size medium.
The spec has been carefully chosen for lightweight performance, helping you eke out those small gains as you blast up and down the trails all day long. With FOX Factory suspension, SRAM GX/X01 Eagle 12-speed drivetrain, DT Swiss M1700 Spline wheels, Shimano XT brakes and carbon dropper and bars, you've got a no-upgrades-needed scenario.
The Fox Factory 34 Kashima fork and Fox Factory DPS shock will be tuned specifically for you by our own Intense mechanics so you can get straight onto the trails and ride with confidence.

About The Sniper
Available in trail and XC flavours, the Sniper is designed for riders who prefer to skip the uplift and take on climbs, but still want the descending confidence of a longer-travel rig. This is no twitchy XC bike – the 29" wheels and progressive geometry make for a stable ride that goes where you point it.
With a longer front-centre per size and specced with a short 50mm stem, the Sniper offers a comfortable fit with precise steering while the long wheelbase provides stability and traction while riding fast and rough terrain. An ideal BB height of 330mm on the Sniper XC and 338mm on the Sniper Trail keeps your pedals out of the dirt and while maintaining a low centre of gravity.
The slack head tube angle coupled with the 44mm offset fork on the 100mm XC Sniper, and 51mm offset on the 120mm Sniper Trail, give the forgiving and confidence-inspiring ride of a big travel bike with the responsiveness of a short travel trail ripper.
If going fast over varied terrain and having as much fun uphill as down gets your juices flowing, this dedicated hard-pedalling machine is the Intense for you.
