Expert Review

Intense bikes are widely regarded as the muscle car of the fat tire world, and the 951 EVO is testament to that reputation. In these days of hyper-adjustable bikes, Intense delivers the 951 with none. This pick is set up for its purpose (charging full steam ahead) from the start so why muddle a good thing with further tweaking, right? Built with a DH-inspired aluminum frame, the 951 absorbs minor trail chatter and big hits with a DVO suspension combo, 200mm Emerald fork and Jade coil shock in back. Its low slung layout gives the bike an instant leap forward with the first pedal stroke and riders can drive hard into whatever lies ahead; the 951 takes it all in and begs for more.

The Intense 951 EVO DVO is also decked out with top tier components from bow to stern. A SRAM drivetrain delivers consistently reliable and precise shifting, Shimano Saint brakes offer speeding locomotive stopping power, while riders perch on a legendarily awesome Thomson post and roam the earth on Maxxis High Rollers. Sure, you could buy a decent used car for less, but the 951 is way more fun.Rating: 5/5
