Here’s the news release from Intense:
Expanding our Southern California Roots
6/11/2021 Temecula, CA – With the current global boom in cycling we see that now more than ever there is a need for high quality, more affordable mountain bikes, so we’d like to introduce you to our ‘951 Series’ of complete bikes. They are INTENSE through and through featuring foundational build kits. Confidence-inspiring, the 951 Series is aimed at those that are new to mountain biking or just looking for a quality frame with a great trail-ready component build.
There will be two 29” wheeled models in the range: the 120mm travel 951 XC, and the 140mm travel 951 Trail. These bikes will use the same frame and lightweight carbon construction as our Sniper T and Primer trail bikes, so you will get all the benefits of our 25 years of world-class frame development – that means perfectly honed geometry and quality suspension platform – now with a pared-down and simplified component package.
The 951 Series is named after the Southern California area code where INTENSE was founded and the county that it is still based in today. The Southern California region has always been INTENSE’s home, allowing us to ride year around, and continue to be inspired to build new and innovative product for our riders.
INTENSE was established on the simple idea from our founder, Jeff Steber, to make a bike that will make people better riders. At INTENSE our hope is that these 951 Series bikes encourage more riders to get outside, enjoy nature and the benefits that mountain biking can bring.
