The 2020 M29 Elite brings you fast, fierce and fun 29er DH performance fit for World-Cup racing.

An evolution of our legendary M-series, the M29 has been a decade in the making. Leading the charge for 29er DH bikes, the M29 was forged on the DH World Cup circuit, its nimble character honed through a podium-getting Prototype at Fort William before being perfected in collaboration with Cesar Rojo and Cero Design.

As beautiful as it is blisteringly fast, the M29 Elite offers everything you need to go fast over the toughest courses in the world. The top-ed World-Cup level frame is finished to the highest standard and features monocoque uni-directional carbon front and rear triangles plus a carbon top link, internal routing and flak guard armour.

The M29 Elite is specced for racing with carbon Wheels and cranks, Fox Factory suspension and a Renthal cockpit plus Shimano Saint brakes and SRAM DH drivetrain.

Your new M29 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.
