Intense Tracer 275C Pro Build Enduro Carbon Full Suspension Mountain Bike 2016
Intense Tracer 275C Pro Build Enduro Suspension MTB
The Tracer 275C is our 27.5 wheel-size, 160mm rear travel bike for trail and enduro riding The Intense Tracer 275C 27.5 Mountain Bike 2016 is a truly top tier enduro machine, the light-weight build comes armed with an aggressive geometry that's at home on demanding downhill descents, without having to compromise on it's climbing capability for the ride back up. The light-weight carbon monocoque chassis of the full suspension mountain bike is remarkably stiff and strong for its weight class, incorporating a lower bottom bracket height and shortened chainstays for snappier handling through more technical corners. It's smooth suspension performance is what truly separates the Intense Tracer 275C from the competition, producing a consistent movement throughout its entire speed range, with no dramatic rate changes at either end of its stroke. A slacker, more aggessive geometry keeps things agile and responsive without compromising its ability to power through big obstacles. A RockShox Pike RC fork with 160mm of travel leads the attack, while a RockShox Monarch Plus custom tuned shock keeps things tidy at the rear.

About Merlin Cycles
This cycling deal was found at Merlin Cycles, one of the UK's most famous bike shops, located up North!
Merlin Cycles started life in 1993, founded by John Moss as a mail order Mountain Bike business ran directly from his spare bedroom in Chorley. Due to early growth, shortly afterwards he opened his first outlet in Ormskirk, and a few years later in 1998, the company grew into larger premises, moving to Leyland.
In the 1990's and early 2000's, Merlin were known for their ranges of mountain bike hardtails, released under the Rock Lobster and Merlin "Malt" brands. These steel and aluminium hardtails were designed in house, available as framesets or complete bikes, representing excellent value for money. The company was also well known for their handbuilt MTB wheels, which in my experience lasted for years without needing truing!
Merlin have always been competitive on pricing, particularly on suspension forks, brakes, wheels and groupsets, which continues to this day. Nowadays they have introduced road cycling equipment and clothing into their product ranges, due to the increase in popularity in this field, thus catering for a broader range of cyclists.
