“The primer is the perfect combination of effortless climbing and comfortable descending. The geometry, linkage and wheel size make this bike travel well over all sorts of fun terrain. Key word, fun!” – Claire Buchar
“The New Intense Primer 29’r is a perfect choice for anyone looking to have that one bike they can race XC or a light enduro event on. Light, stiff, & efficient, characteristics you’ll noticed when climbing or getting on the power, yet plush, with that perfect geometry, which will bring added confidence to rip the downhills. I just used this new 130mm weapon to race the BC Bike Race and couldn’t have dreamt up a better bike for an event like this. When you’re on your bike for 7 straight days hammering the best single track BC Canada has to offer & there isn’t one thing you can think of that could have made the ride better, you know you’re on a special bike.”
