Meet the Carbine SL.

Introducing the Carbine SL: the newest addition to Intense Cycles' exciting line of carbon fiber frames. Weighing in around the 5 lb. mark and offering cool features like titanium bolts and a carbon fiber shock link, The Carbine SL delivers an exceptional ride for racers and enthusiasts alike.

"I have personally had the pleasure of riding this bike for 3 months now, and loved every minute of it”, says Intense Marketing Manager, Scott Sharples. “The SL gives me the ability to charge up steep, technical hills and then bomb the downhill."

Intense designer, Jeff Steber, chose higher modulus carbon fiber to save weight and retain strength. He also added dedicated 135 QR dropouts and adjustable 4.75 - 5.25 inches of plush efficient VPP suspension.The SL hits the aggressive XC/Lite Trail segment with 68 degree head angle, low stance and light weight. Once again they joined forces with German design & engineering specialists SEED Engineering to create another Carbon Fiber master piece.
