About The Sniper
Intense 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.
