Intense Cycles has just taken the wraps off its new full carbon Spider 275C. Offering 115-130mm adjustable rear travel, Boost spacing at the rear and a frame design that gives a massively dropped top tube, it seems to have all the modern ‘must-have’ touches.
It’s two years since the launch of the 27.5in Carbon Tracer and the carbonification of the Intense line continues. We’ll bring you more news from the Sea Otter in a couple of weeks’ time.
Here’s the spec list for the Pro build – which’ll cost £5400 in the UK when they’re out in May.
A frame-only will be £2899
