Description

If you can’t podium on this thing, then it’s time you found a new sport.

Intense built the M6 FRO with one purpose: to soak up bumps and rip through race-course chunder at warp speed. The M6’s VPP suspension, low bottom bracket, and slack head angle create a super-stable ride whether you’re pinning it through rock gardens or railing through corners. How fast, you ask? Well, World Cup Downhill racers Chris Kovarik and Matti Lehikoien trust the M6 when they cut loose on their race runs, and this frame also holds the 130.7 mph world speed record.

  • FRO designation means significant weight reduction for race conditions
  • Custom Easton EA-6X tubing for optimal stiffness-to-weight ratio
  • Fully-active Virtual Pivot Point suspension eliminates power loss
  • Shock mounts off of lower link for low center of gravity
  • Internally and externally welded frame handmade in the USA
  • 150x12 rear spacing; 135x10, 135x12 dropouts available separately
  • Frame and rear shock only, requires assembly by a certified bike mechanic
  • We cannot be held liable for injuries you cause to yourself or others through the use (or misuse) of this product.

Can i put a marzocchic super monster in a intense m6

Of course you can.. does not mean you do ! :) It will ruin you geometry and make it feel like it has an achor in the front. On a FRO frame does not seem like a good idea !

Hello, my name...

Write your question here...
Hello, my name is Tony and have the oppertunity to purchase an Intense M3. I can't find any info on the frame online that is recent. Is this an old bike, replaced in the production line by the M6? Will it be impossible for me to get any parts if the frame cracks? It's an unbelievable oppertunity to buy the bike, but I cant justify the money if its gonna be impossible to get parts. Thanks for your time, and any feedback would be great!

The M6 is the replacement for the M3. Your frame will not have a warranty and Intense is not the best at providing parts for previous model bikes. If you break a swingarm, you would essentially be up the creek as you would have a hard time locating a triangle. I would recommend getting the M6

Best Answer Responded on

Ok just to clear things up, saying Intense is not the best at providing parts for old frames is not true. It may take time but they can make you just about anything for your old frame. I got a swingarm for a 2001 Uzzi SL last year for a customer no prob. With that said I do much prefer the M6 over the M3. The M3 feels very short in the coqpit, BB feels tall, and no matter what it just doesn't seem to absorb bumps like the M6. If all you can afford is the M3 thats cool you'll like it, but if you can cough up the cash for the M6, do it! you'll LOVE it!!

Intense M6 Downhill Frame

After countless years of downhill racing I have to say this is my favorite bike to date. It holds it's line on off-camber terrain better than my Iron Horse Sunday did. The VPP technology absolutely eliminates all the pedal bob I experienced on older single/or modified single pivot "four bar" bikes. Center of gravity was extremely low and makes you want to charge into corners like a world cup pro. Everything about this frame was awesome and made in the US to boot!

Yuichiro is asking about setting up his sag, which is critical for proper suspension action. If you don't know about setting sag for different rider weights and riding styles, you shouldn't be slanging Intense frames. The M6 is one of the most specialized frames in the industry!

Best Answer Responded on

In general the sag on th M6 is very comparable to the Iron Horse Sunday or Santa Cruz V10, in which the ballpark sag is approximately 35%. The stock spring that comes on the M6 is best suited for riders 140-175lbs. Anyone weighing less than or more than those weights should ride the bike and then decide if they feel as though they should swap out. Just an FYI: if you are going to swap springs there is a titanium version available!

Wikipedia would be a place to start.And google.com is always your friend.If you can, watch any of the "Earthed" videos. They are all about downhill mountain biking. "Downhill Speed" is also really good at showcasing what it's like to race DH.

Compiling options for this bike.
It'll be just a moment...
