Intense ACV Foundation Build 27.5+ Mountain Bike - 2017
The new ACV (AIR CUSHIONED VEHICLE) is a specifically designed 27.5+ bike that was created out of a necessity for adventure. a wider 2.8” tire offers ultimate traction climbing or descending any terrain, while the agile geometry and 130mm adjustable travel deliver supreme ride quality. Fluctuating the tire pressure between 12-25 PSI adds another level of ride preference to the ACV. More undampened suspension and sidewall grip at lower PSI allows riders a smooth ascent through the rockiest of trails.
