Reply to Intense M16c sizing help. 9/23/2016 1:10 AM

I'm 6'1 (185cm) and rode the large M16 and didn't feel cramped at all. I could have gotten away with riding an XL but I don't race or anything and the large was a good balance of playful yet roomy enough to still be comfortable opening it up.

Looks like Gwin was on a custom rear end on his YT Tues for finals. Alloy seat stays, a switch to IS-mount with two mounting positions for long and short, and key'd in "Gambler" style rear dropouts with two positions to play with chainstay length. Interesting.

Who do you guys think is gonna take it this year? Gwin's been chasing the title every year but always seems to have bad luck or just not throw a winning one down for Worlds. Will this be his year? Hart is on a streak currently and we know he's capable ... more »

Looks like we're on a red, white and blue roll right now with Worlds bikes. Intense just posted this teaser of Nik Nestoroff's M16C for Jrs. We may have been working in something really cool for our riders for Worlds, or maybe not.

Depends on what you're intending to use them for. For trail riding, they'd likely be okay as they're a pretty minimal and lightweight padding. But, for downhill and freeride, you might want to look for something a bit more robust. Check out our product section for reviews and articles ... more »

Years ago we started building a new spot not too far from my house. We built a road-gap, probably 15ft down and maybe 25ft out and a small warm-up jump which the lip was only 8 or so feet from the landing, and the landing was a good 30ft long so you ... more »
