The "S" model designation is given to a build/model that pushes the limits of that segment. The new Tracer S model pushes the limits of Enduro/Freeride with a top-spec Ohlins suspension platform, DH casing tires, and powerful Magura MT7 Pro brakeset.
Borrowing design inspiration and technology from our M29 downhill bike, utilizing its bottom link driven rear shock and suspension design, we have created a mountain bike with plush travel for the roughest of descents and a firm pedal platform when needed. We’ve positioned the rear shock low down and centered in the frame, allowing the Tracer to descend and handle terrain impeccably.
The Tracer S has been designed around a staggered wheelset, which we've found an outstanding balance of agility and stability. The tracer is ready when the trails get tight, or you're looking to shave time off of race stages.
The Chad Storage system is an on-bike storage solution that is being introduced on the Tracer. This system is not one individual part but a concept for storage solutions that will continue to evolve. Keep all your on-trail bike maintenance tools in your bike and leave your wallet at home.
The Tracer S has a 'Flip Ship' feature which allows you to alter your bike's geometry between two positions. The High setting is best in technical terrain, while the Low is more suitable for flow and bike park style riding.
We talk about JS Suspension a lot here at INTENSE. JS stands for Jeff Steber (our founder and CEO); simply put, it is a sophisticated suspension system that uses two counter-rotating links to connect the front and rear triangles of the bike. The links are precisely placed to separate the pedaling and braking forces from the suspension performance. Every model in our range has its own personal and specific JS tune.
