The new INTENSE M1 has 203mm (linear) / 212mm (progressive) of rear travel and is built around a 6-link, high-pivot, 6061-T6 aluminum frame. The M1 is a race-proven winner. Designed for a 279 wheelset, developed, and perfected by our engineers and the INTENSE Factory Racing team on the World Cup circuit to be the fastest downhill bike.

During the initial development stages, the 6-link high pivot design allowed us to isolate, adjust and customize every element of the M1’s ride characteristics. Our goal was to design a bike that would excel in all DH conditions, on any track, and honor the name and racing pedigree of our original M1 frames that we produced in the 1990s. With the new M1 we’ve created a bike that can smash through the roughest terrain, generate speed, accelerate efficiently when pedaling and stay active under braking.

HIGH PIVOT

High-pivot bikes, especially in downhill applications, have proven to provide amazing performance and muster great race results. The rearward axle path of the M1 moves the rear wheel out of the way of trail obstacles, helping the bike maintain momentum and control. The position of the idler pulley reduces the effects of chain growth, eliminating pedal kickback, and further enhancing suspension and pedaling performance.

ULTIMATE SET-UP

The M1’s 6-Link suspension design comes with two shock mount positions, allowing you to choose between a Linear (203mm travel) or Progressive (212mm travel) setting. The full-size 56/56 headtube, with a 63º head angle, allows you to run a 0-10mm reach adjustment headset. These adjustments mean that you can set the bike up to suit your riding style, personal preferences, and track conditions.

PRECISION SHOCK TUNING

The Fox Float X2 Factory Air Shock combines an ultra-plush, coil-like feel with incredible damping prowess that is optimized for downhill. It offers tuning with adjustability of high/low-speed compression and high/low-speed rebound damping. In addition to precise damping control, the oversized air chamber provides a more linear, planted ride, and a bottom-out bumper ensures end-stroke progression.

EASY TO WORK ON, A MECHANIC’S DREAM

In response to the feedback from our race mechanics, we prioritized ease of maintenance when designing the M1. Notable features include externally routed cables for convenient access and standardized 6mm Hex wrench compatibility for all hardware except one collet bolt. There are three 'captured' washers in the linkage hardware, meaning they stay in place and don't fall to the ground when re-installing that pivot bolt after a muddy rebuild. The M1 uses high-end Enduro bearings in all links and features an easy-to-maintain and durable threaded BB.
