The 2020 M16 Expert brings you world-class downhill performance from the original downhill brand.
World-Cup proven, the M16 is the culmination of decades of R&D and race pedigree. Since launch, the Intense Factory Racing team and Intense engineers have worked closely to retune the kinematics of the bike for improved agility and handling over a variety of terrain. This is complemented by a new FRO (For Racing Only) bottom link, which works in harmony with the revised kinematics, geometry and metric shock on the bike, offering a premium riding experience.
When it comes to the frame of the M16 Expert, there's no second tier – rest assured you're getting the same full-carbon frame platform as the pros including carbon top link and titanium hardware plus internal routing and flak guard armour. Specced ready to race, the M16 is also the perfect chassis for split-second-saving upgrades down the line.
Your new M16 will be tuned specifically for you by our own Intense Cycles UK mechanics so you can get straight onto your next DH run and ride with confidence.
