Intense’s first hard tail 29er, and it is Carbon Fiber.

Just like all of Intense’s bikes, this bike had to be the best [riding] bike in its category. Designed for the cross country rider that appreciates quality and does not want to be ‘just like everybody else on the trail’. The Hard Eddie is super light, weighing in at a tad over 1kg or 2lb 7oz, and it has the legendary ride quality that Intense’ Carbon Fiber is so well known for.

Hard Eddie comes with 135mm, 142mm and single speed dropout options. The ride quality comes from the refined Intense geometry and quality construction of the frame. Sticking to the successful formula used in the creation of the popular Carbine and Carbine SL, they used the design skills of Jeff Steber, and the Engineering skills of SEED Engineering to create another Carbon Fiber master piece.

Hard Eddie is available in 2 color options, Naked red, and Naked with a matching rigid carbon fork option. With 100mm fork Hard Eddie runs a 70 degree steering angle and 72 degree seat angle. The PF30 and integrated headset offers a great platform for a light rigid frame.
