Intense Primer Pro-Build 29er Mountain Bike 2017 - Sram X01 Eagle 12 Speed
The Primer delivers all the benefits of a twenty-niner with the responsiveness of a two seven five. With aggressive geometry and the efficient JS Tuned platform, the Primer will completely change your mind on what a twenty-niner is capable of. Equipped with short chain stays, slack head angle, and a steeper seat tube the Primer provides a balanced feel on the bike whether pointed up the mountain or back down the other side.
