The Carbine 29 is, simply put, an incredible frame.

Intense Carbine 29 from 2014 Dirt 100.


You may well remember us raving on about an Intense Tracer in the past, one that we’d fitted with a Cane Creek AngleSet, it was an amazing bike. Well, this Carbine 29 is basically a beautiful carbon version of that bike, but without the need for an AngleSet. It is nothing short of insane, and that’s a good insane. It is super light and highly capable, especially when fitted with a coil shock, which we think suits the suspension design better than any air shock. Overall it might not quite be able to match the Specialized Enduro on rougher tracks, but at the same time some riders might find the Enduro too much and prefer the 125 to 140mm of travel that this bike offers. This one is definitely a Dirt favourite.
