We spotted the prototypes at the World Cups earlier in the season, and now the production version has landed: meet the all-new Intense M16C. Featuring a monocoque UD carbon front and rear triangle and rolling on 27.5” wheels, the M16C pumps out between 215 -240 mm travel via the "JS Tuned" virtual pivot point suspension linkage.

The new M16C makes use of Intense's suspension layout, to deliver between 8 and 9 inches of travel. The frame comes in 2 colorways, the rad red shown here, and a stealthy all-black version.
Internal cable routing keeps everything clean.

Intense also presented a special edition Shaun Palmer model of the alloy M16, produced in very limited quantities. This is how happy the man himself was to see it:
