    Looks like a replacement for the Socom. Awesome looking bike. If I hadn't just bought an M6...

    Press Release

    Intense Cycles Launches New Downhill Race Frame

    The New Intense 951

    Fast Just Found A New Area Code!

    It has been an amazing year of design and development for Jeff Steber and his team at Intense Cycles. It was at Sea Otter 2008 where the Tracer VP trailbike was first introduced. In terms of sales and awards, it has gone on to become Intense’s most successful model ever. Since then, Intense has released the new Uzzi VP, the Spider 2 and the Tazer FRO VP. Now exactly one year later, Intense launches the 951 Downhill Race model. Featuring Intense’s famous World Cup winning geometry, Next Generation VPP suspension with adjustable travel from 8 to 8.5 inches, an 83mm bb and ISCG 05 mount, the 951 represents the evolution of Downhill racing. The first production will be the FRO model with monocoque downtube and G3 dropouts, allowing the rider to change wheelbase, head angle and bottom bracket height depending on the track. Later a less expensive standard model with a traditional downtube and fixed dropouts will be produced. Both will be available in 3 sizes and multiple colors. MSRP is $2760 for the FRO with Fox RC4 shock, $2420 for the standard version with Fox RC2 shock Contact your local Intense dealer for more info or to get yours on order.

    Yeah, Crankbrothers displayed them at Interbike last year. Bladed spokes.

    That green is sick!

    Edit: just noticed the cable routing. Hard to tell from the pic but looks like an afterthought.

    It's similar to what they've got on the Socom, Slopestyle and M6. If I had a choice, I would prefer the cables on top of the downtube.

    frame looks good, but I'm gonna have to agree that the decals are pretty fugly. same with the cables. should be on top of the DT, but guess not. was noticing this with mfogas slopestyle too...

    any word on geometry? I'd be down to throw a leg over one sometime.

    if it rides like an M6, It'll definitely be on my short list...

    The Sunday Green is so Sexxy !

    I think both Intense and Foe's use the same cable routing engineer, Rock'n Bikes with funky cable routing.

    That's a sweet looking rig. I actually read somewhere that it isn't the Socom replacement and that we will be seeing a Socom 2 later in the year.
