THE MOST VERSATILE 29ER IN THE INDUSTRY
The Primer delivers all the benefits of a twenty-niner with the responsiveness of a two seven five. With aggressive geometry and the efficient JS Tuned platform, the Primer will completely change your mind on what a twenty-niner is capable of.

IN THE STUDIO WITH THE PRIMER
What Editors Are Saying
Having already spent some quality trail time on Intense’s recently revamped Spider 29c —which on paper bears a strikingly strong resemblance to this new Primer 29c—I wondered whether I would notice substantial differences in the two 29ers. But once I’d settled into this new Primer, I felt like I’d finally stumbled onto that elusive book that hadn’t been returned to its proper place on the library shelf.

We would soon discover, that there is a beast lurking beneath the Primer's mild-mannered profile. The Primer 29 may in fact, be the best performing trail bike that Intense has ever made.

Along with its looks, gorgeous colour scheme and fantastic ‘new skool’ geometry, there was a bit of an undercurrent of excitement within the MTB press about the performance of this new bike. During testing many journalists claimed to be leaving their big hitting 650b enduro bikes in the shed, favouring this new Primer 29 model for any ride; could it really be that good?
