But most impressive is the ride. Toss a leg over one and see for yourself.

Intense Carbine 29

The Carbine 29 raises the bar on performance, technology and beauty, offering aggressive geometry, patented VPP suspension, all the design benefits of INTENSE 2nd generation INTENSE carbon fiber, and a look only possible from INTENSE.
Designed to allow riders to descend the roughest enduro tracks with confidence, the bike boasts 5.5 inches (140mm) of rear wheel travel, 160mm of travel up front, and a 67 degree head tube angle.
The slacker head angle and 51mm 29-specific fork offset on the Carbine 29 work together to create a bike that delivers added agility and improved handling.
Fast, gnarly rock sections never felt so secure. Cornering was never as quick on a 29er. Let go of the brakes and take the rough line to the bottom. The Carbine 29 will allow you to ride hard, and ride fast.
The bike offers cutting-edge technology like internal cable routing, Reverb Stealth seat post routing and ISCG 05 chain guide tabs. It will be offered as both a complete bike or frame-only.
Frames are fitted with a FOX Float CTD Kashima Coat rear shock. Complete bikes will include the new SRAM 1×11 drive train and a 160mm Rockshox Pike fork.
The new Carbine 29er has proven to be a great Enduro weapon. Raced & tested under wraps for months, the Carbine 29 is already no stranger to the podium.

DRD/Intense Lauren Daney Win Plattekill Gravity Open

Roxbury, New York (May 29, 2012) – DRD Intense’s Lauren Daney captured her second consecutive pro victory by winning the Plattekill Gravity Open in Roxbury, New York.  Plattekill mountain is a legendary east coast mountain bike destination as it offers multitude of steep rocky chutes, high seed sections, berms, jumps and roots though out.

Although Friday’s practice started out slick and wet, conditions steadily improved throughout the weekend and were prime for race day!  The vibe throughout the weekend was filled with excitement, but still maintained a typical east coast relaxed atmosphere.

“I had a blast all weekend long,” exclaimed an ecstatic Lauren Daney.    “The course was awesome and I was hitting all of the jumps.  I knew I had an advantage over the competition, but still knew I had to come out charging on race day!  I had momentum coming from last weekend, & am thrilled I took another win!”

Lauren extends her lead in the 2012 Pro GRT series.  Lauren will be taking a bit of time off to train before joining up with the rest of the DRD INTENSE factory team at the 2nd round of the US Grand Prix of Mountain Biking at Sugarbush Resort in Warren, Vermont on June 17th.
