Intense Tracer 275C DVO

We're proud to share a special project that Intense Cycles have been working on with DVO Suspension. The Limited Edition Tracer 275C DVO. Available by the last week of April.

The Limited Edition Tracer 275C DVO allows Intense Cycles to offer Interbike's 2014 Bike Of The Year, the Tracer 275C, in a special ride package featuring DVO's race-tuned suspension. With a special design customised to highlight the new DVO Trail suspension system - a Diamond Fork with 160mm of travel and the Jade coil rear shock - this bike gives riders a completely different feel than the standard spec'd air shock.

Riders experience a more supple ride, increased traction and superior big hit performance because with the Jade coil rear shock, the first 50mm of travel - or 'sag' - is much more active than air. The rear coil shock also allows for a more active suspension that keeps the rear tyre in contact with the ground to increase traction. When compared with an air shock, a coil shock provides a more linear feel through the travel. Big hits feel controlled as the bike cycles through its travel, especially when bottomed out. The unique DVO system allows the rider to dial in the suspension feel while on the go for that perfect race tune tailored to each ride.

Like the 951 DVO, the Tracer DVO is not just a simple spec change but a bike designed around this special suspension system. Intense Cycles used the SRAM XO/X1 drivetrain combination with green on the cranksets and derailleurs, Stan's Flow wheels with matching green colour hits, a stunning black and green Tracer carbon frame using high-gloss green paint to match the DVO components. They chose a Renthal cockpit, Maxxis High Roller II tyres, Rock Shox Reverb adjustable post and Shimano XT brakes. This is another example of Intense's commitment to making high-performance bikes with a stunning finish. Intense will build just 250 of these bikes and no more. For more information click here
