First Look: Intense Tracer Palmer Edition 11

Shaun Palmer and Intense Cycles have spent the better part of the past year designing the Palmer Edition Tracer 275. With help from FOX and DT Swiss, custom colors and graphics adorn the bike from head to toe. We stopped by the Intense factory to get a first-hand look at the new bike, which features a full custom spec and a paint job with plenty of Palmer-inspired designs throughout. Now available to the public, the production numbers on this unique bike are limited and unspecified.


  • Carbon monocoque chassis
  • Custom DT Swiss wheelset
  • Custom paint job
  • ISCG-05 compatible
  • Water bottle mount
  • 5-year frame warranty
  • MSRP: $7,499

Black, white and gold. FOX printed custom white fork decals to match the bike, and for the wheels, DT Swiss made custom a custom Palmer signature "P" emblem for the hub paired with white spokes and decals to round out the whole look. Even the saddle matches the bike perfectly.

Recognize those graphics from anywhere? When Intense set out to make a true Palmer Edition bike, they went all the way.
