Description Technical Specs
Intense Sniper FRO Mountain Bike: The Sniper FRO has one purpose – to race. Built on the progressive Sniper XC frame we've set out to build one of the lightest production full-suspension XC bikes on the market. Featuring the new Rockshox Sid SL Ultimate Fork, Sid Luxe Ultimate RL shock and a full Sram AXS XX1 drivetrain, the Sniper FRO is ready to leave it all out on the race course.

It’s all about the geometry. Long, low and slack is no longer just for the downhill crowd, it’s the ‘new normal’ for XC trail bikes too… it’s real a game changer. We believe that short travel bikes should descend like their long-travel siblings, so with the Sniper T we've created an XC trail bike with an aggressive DH spirit. It loves going uphill, but it always has one eye on the descents. A longer top tube, shorter stem, wider bars, lower bottom bracket and slacker head angle all make for an exciting yet balanced bike. It is a complete system that is designed to work as one.

The Sniper XC’s numbers are progressive, with geometry and design that’s normally only seen on trail or enduro bikes… but it works. With sharp and crisp handling, and responsive pedaling, it is confident and efficient on the climbs – stable, controlled and direct on the descents. Add into that mix dropper posts and 1x12 gearing and you have what we believe to be the ultimate XC bike for the modern age.

We know that riding the Sniper will fill you with confidence. At 4lbs 8oz for a size medium it is one of the lightest full suspension XC frames on the market, easily holding its own amongst its competitors. Climbing, descending or cruising along… it does it all with a powerful yet efficient ease. The way the Sniper covers the ground so quickly and effortlessly is inspiring and it is nothing short of a revelation on the descents.

The Sniper XC is our cross-country thrasher, but don't be fooled, it's got the INTENSE spirit through and through. We know that you won’t be disappointed. It’s everything you could want in a modern day XC bike.
