With 29" wheels and 155/160mm of travel, our Carbine 29 is very much the epitome of a big-wheeled long travel Enduro bike. With great handling characteristics, the Carbine loves high speeds and is right at home on endless gnarly challenging trails, laps in the bike park, or Enduro race stages. Just point and go.

For a long travel, big-wheeled bike the Carbine is super responsive, and with its modern long and slack geometry, it's aggressive but balanced, giving IT great stability and confidence, but also the maneuverability needed on tight and twisty trails. The carbon frame is composed, poised, and light in weight, giving great all-out speed and keeping a lively, playful feel. The Carbine will allow you to pick and choose your lines: it's nimble and controllable even on the steepest descents.

At home on rough and challenging trails, the Carbine can also climb any technical or longer drawn-out ascents with ease. The climbing position on the bike is perfect, and when things get technical, the suspension remains active all the time to provide excellent traction and great pedaling efficiency. The Carbine is fast everywhere.

The Carbine has competed at the highest level and has a pure race pedigree. In 2019 INTENSE team rider Isabeau Courdurier piloted her Carbine to overall victory at the Enduro World Series (EWS). Not only that, but she also won every single round on the way.
