What Editors Are Saying
During one arduous trek up a dry creek bed, I kept expecting an untimely meeting of a rock and pedal to send my hips into my handlebars, but it never happened. My image of the Tracer as purely a lightweight sled for short thrashes and enduro races began to fade, and I started to plan reckless all-day exploits at high altitudes.

Intense, in collaboration with Cero Design Studio, has successfully reforged the Tracer from one of the more versatile trail bikes in recent history into a sharp-performing enduro racer that could double as an epic park shredder. Intense says that the 2017 Tracer is an evolutionary step, but I would describe the Tracer's transformation as a metamorphosis.

In the corners, we had no trouble feeling at home on the Tracer. Mid-stroke support felt spot-on and the bike provided a steady, supportive chassis to push into, allowing us to grab as much traction as available.
