*This Intense Carbine 29C Foundation frame has been previously built as a showroom display bike, will have slight cosmetic markings from where components have previously been fitted.
No shock included.
Using the NM frame with full uni-directional carbon monocoque front and rear triangles and an alloy top link, the Carbine Foundation benefits from Intense's superior frame quality and boasts full internal cabling and flack guard armour.
About The Carbine
Once considered an impossible feat, the Carbine effortlessly combines 29er speed with impeccable trail manners. Add in the long 155mm rear travel with 160mm up front and the Carbine can take big hits in its stride while maintaining its lively, playful handling.
This latest Carbine model has been completely redesigned from the ground up to create a truly enduro-focused trail geometry with longer reach, slacker head angle and increased wheelbase. Like the 27.5" Tracer, the Carbine takes advantage of our redeveloped and JS Tuned-suspension 'Enduro Link', which has been refined to deliver optimised leverage curve and axle path.
All this means the Carbine is most at home on rough, fast trails where you'll get the biggest benefit from the speed of the 29" wheels and the most fun out of the longer travel.
The Carbine is the go-to enduro race bike for our team riders, so if you're looking for flat-out speed on every stage, look no further than the Carbine.
