The Spider 29 Carbon Foundation Bike is the fourth installment in Intense’s lineup of carbon fiber mountain bike frames. Designed specifically for cross country and trail riding, the Spider 29 boasts an array of excellent features, including: adjustable 4.5-5” travel, G1 dropout system, and Intense’s patented VPP rear suspension technology. To sweeten the deal, the Spider 29 Carbon also features internal cable routing, a tapered head tube, and special internal cable routing for dropper seat post (if you choose to upgrade). In many ways, the Spider 29 Carbon is the Swiss Army Knife of Intense’s lineup and is a great choice for riders who are looking for a bike that can tackle a wide range of terrain.
With modern trail geometry and the VPP suspension, the Spider 29 Carbon is your do everything bike. VPP suspension balances forces to eliminate unwanted compression. VPP bikes use a patented link configuration and axle path to apply some of the pulling force from the chain to counteract the motion caused by pedaling.VPP suspension is plush and features minimal “pedal- bob.” With the Spider 29 Carbon’s VPP suspension you get the best of both worlds: efficient climbing and plush downhill domination.

For the Foundation build of the Spider 29 Carbon, Intense selected a workhorse 2×10 Shimano SLX drivetrain package. The full SLX drivetrain complement is endlessly efficient and will keep you speeding down the trail without a hitch. A suspension pair from X-Fusion handles harsh terrain duties, with a X-Fusion Trace RL 130mm in the front, and a X-Fusion 02 RL Air taming the rear. Reliable Shimano BL 506 hydraulic brakes give you all the stopping power you need to push the limits and back off when things getting a little too extreme. Dependable Maxxis Ardent rubber rests on a set of Sun Inferno rims for a ride quality that isn’t just fast, but durable against all the obstacles the train might throw your way. Intense finishes off the command center of the Spider 29 Carbon Foundation with an array of Intense alloy components, so you’re always dialed in and ready for hours in the saddle.
