Press Release

Intense Cycles Launches New Downhill Race Frame

The New Intense 951

Fast Just Found A New Area Code!

It has been an amazing year of design and development for Jeff Steber and his team at Intense Cycles. It was at Sea Otter 2008 where the Tracer VP trailbike was first introduced. In terms of sales and awards, it has gone on to become Intense's most successful model ever. Since then, Intense has released the new Uzzi VP, the Spider 2 and the Tazer FRO VP. Now exactly one year later, Intense launches the 951 Downhill Race model. Featuring Intense's famous World Cup winning geometry, Next Generation VPP suspension with adjustable travel from 8 to 8.5 inches, an 83mm bb and ISCG 05 mount, the 951 represents the evolution of Downhill racing. The first production will be the FRO model with monocoque downtube and G3 dropouts, allowing the rider to change wheelbase, head angle and bottom bracket height depending on the track. Later a less expensive standard model with a traditional downtube and fixed dropouts will be produced. Both will be available in 3 sizes and multiple colors. MSRP is $2760 for the FRO with Fox RC4 shock, $2420 for the standard version with Fox RC2 shock Contact your local Intense dealer for more info or to get yours on order.

More images and videos of this exciting new model are available on the Intense website.

The rest sounds sweet, but I hate 83 mm BBs. Sucks that all the manufacturers force everybody to use heavy cranksets with a f*d up Q-factor and heavy wheels. :madman:
Guess I have to stick with the Socom and then see what brand still has 73 mm BB DH frames.

Would it have 135mm dropout option?
Bummer on 83mm BB tho, I was planning to buy new Saint cranks to run on Socom.
