2016 Intense Cycles M16 Palmer Limited Edition

The Intense M16 Palmer is the latest version of Shaun Palmer’s 1996 M1, which Shaun himself refers to as “the world’s most famous 2nd place bike”. After only 18 months in the sport, Shaun finished 2nd at the Cairns, Australia World Championships on his USA-flag painted Intense M1. Now, 20 years later, he has re-joined Intense and created today’s version of the legendary stars-and-stripes bike: a hand-painted, custom-spec’d M16. Intense will produce 60 of these coveted bikes. This king of the downhill circuit is constructed from a hydroformed aluminum frame and has 215-240mm of precision suspension that sucks up everything from braking bumps to high-speed G-outs to gigantic drops with ease. Up front, the Fox Factory 40 Float fork offers 200mm of rock and root-leveling suspension, while the crisp SRAM X01 DH shifting gets you through the pedally sections. Polishing off the build are DT Swiss wheels, E-thirteen carbon cranks, and a quality Renthal cockpit. Intense was the pioneer of downhill racing bikes—and the M16 is the new standard.
