The M16 was introduced in 2016 and it was the first full-carbon downhill bike introduced INTENSE. With 27.5” wheels, the M16 remains an important race-ready model in the INTENSE line-up for those looking for a quality downhill bike with premium components and featuring the smaller wheel size.
Since the initial M16 model was released, the INTENSE Factory Racing team and INTENSE engineers have worked closely together to retune the kinematics of the bike for improved agility and handling over a variety of terrain. The fixed geometry of the bike compliments the bike’s new metric shock, which is longer than the predecessor for better overall stability and feeling, especially in race conditions. The geometry has been further improved and the bike has a slacker head angle, with a lower BB than the previous model. The M16 now boasts an ‘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 thanks to INTENSE’s high-quality engineering. We put a lot of thought into the process of improving this already-impressive downhill model, and thanks to our accessibility to the toughest arenas in the world with some of the leading athletes on the planet, the M16 is a more complete and an even more race defined package for those looking for a 27.5” downhill bike. For 2020 the bike has a new striking look in the high-quality finish expected from INTENSE.

All bikes come pre-built and tuned through INTENSE authorized mechanics and will arrive to you with minimum assembly.
