Product Description

Everything mountain bike related has to be long, low, and slack. It is a pervasive phrase that, while helpful, does little to actually describe what a bike feels like on the trail. The Intense Sniper XC Factory Frame might adhere to the long, low, and slack line in the world of XC bikes, but it makes the Sniper a forgiving descender without sacrificing cross country efficiency.

As you’d expect, JS Tuned Suspension is the name of the game with every Intense. Think of JS Tuned suspension as an evolution of VPP kinematics we’ve loved for years on Santa Cruz bikes; as Santa Cruz has evolved, so too has Intense. Using their Trail tune with an upper mount shock, the Sniper provides their best pedaling platform while maintaining the active small bump sensitivity and grip Intense bikes are known for. This is a holistic approach that includes geometry, suspension tune, frame design, and parts spec to make for the best XC bike Intense can make.

The Sniper XC is a unique bike for it's progressive geometry. 100 mm suspension isn’t much, but combined with a 468 mm reach in a size large, 50 mm stem, and 67-degree headtube mean that riders who love riding up climbs can save energy on descents. Its a stable rider with a ton of grip on climbs, allowing riders to comfortably sit and pedal away with efficiency and pace without being mucked up by roots and rocks.
