Since the 1st generation Tracer was introduced in 1999, the bike has been positioned as our most aggressive trail/all mountain bike in the line – agile on climbs and destroys the descents. The Tracer has long been a leader in the evolution of trail bikes. In 2014, it was named “Interbike’s Bike of the Year”. In 2017, Pink Bike called it a “playful, ready-for-anything trail bike” and Enduro Mag said was an “ irrefutably great bike”. But don’t take their word for it – experience it for yourself.
An enduro specialist designed for those that like to push the limits of what a bike designed to both climb and descend can do. Equal parts nimble and monster truck, a reliable partner for trips to big mountains, bike parks and trail centres.
Lovers of more technical and challenging terrain, those who enjoy time in the alps in the summer but want to be able to use the same bike back home in the UK.
The Tracer likes it rough! It thrives in big mountain terrain.
The Press On The Tracer
It's very rare to be able to perform basic set up, jump on a bike and instantly be able to ride at 9/10ths, but the Tracer allows you to do that. Sticky rubber and superb shocks help, but it's neutral in the best way possible and gives a blank canvas for you to work with - whether you want to go Jackson Pollock or Leonardo da Vinci on it. It simply devours rock gardens with very little loss of momentum and dives into the gnarliest of steep sections with abandon.The back end is brilliant too, refusing to get hung up on rocks or feed back unnecessary chatter to the pedals and offering excellent support both when cornering and simply hucking it to flat.

Intense, in collaboration with Cero Design Studio, has successfully reforged the Tracer from one of the more versatile trail bikes in recent history into a sharp-performing enduro racer that could double as an epic park shredder. Intense says that the 2017 Tracer is an evolutionary step, but I would describe the Tracer's transformation as a metamorphosis.

It's fast. Everywhere. It's built light and the geometry is right for up, down and along quickly… The overall feel is that of composure. It's poised, can be pushed hard, goes fast and faster…you've just got to keep up… It's very much at home blasting rough trails. Whatever lies ahead you have confidence in the bike's solid feel and sublime suspension to get you through at speed, look up and hold fast! This is one bike that really trucks on when it gets messy…The new Tracer is a rough terrain charger that's flat-out fast down the hill and punchy up. It's a lightweight enduro heavyweight. It really does do a lot of things well, it's versatile enough to use as an all-rounder for most everything and it absolutely carries a big stick.
