Not dissimilar to Bigfoot sightings, we’ve been reading the whispers and viewing the spy photos of the 6 Point 6 for the last year, but hard information has been scarce. We’ve finally received word that it will be ready to ship shortly after Interbike at the end of September.
With the release of the 6 Point 6, Intense has now answered the call for an aggressive all-mountain machine by mating the ride quality of the legendary 5.5 EVP with the burly aggressiveness of the Uzzi.
Understanding the demands that the 6 Point 6 frame is expected to shoulder, Intense employs a 1.5′ headtube reinforced with beautifully crafted gussetting, highlighted by a hydroformed Easton/Intense aluminum top tube, placing the strength where you need it most, while saving weight wherever possible. Intense’s reknowned CNC artistry is prevalent once again, from the rear stays to the headtube.
The disc-specific 6 Point 6 reportedly features 6.75′ of VPP travel, anchored by the new Fox DHX Air shock, allowing the frame to weigh in well under 8 lbs. This, along with the trademark sealed pivot bearings throughout the suspension, provides the lateral stiffness, traction and monster travel we’ve all come to know and love from Intense’s VPP bikes. The 6 Point 6 is ideally mated with a 6′ travel front fork to balance the geometry, a perfect match with a Fox 36!
We expect to take delivery of the 6 Point 6 in the following shipments:
Medium – Middle of October
Large – Middle of November
Small – Beginning of December

The 6 Point 6 will be available in Intense Red, Gloss Black, Satin Black or Titanium Grey. For a $100 upcharge, you can customize your 6 Point 6 in any of the following colors: Sparkle Silver, Old School Yellow, Hot Rod Orange, Midnight Blue, Blue Steel, or Black Bronze. For $200, you can have the frame ball burnished or powdercoated in Baby Blue or Pearl White. It uses a 31.6mm seatpost, and requires a 34.9mm top swing/top pull front derailleur.
