This is a really fast and precise bike—one of the most efficient pedalers in our 2016 test. It would make a great, all-day shred machine.
If we had to narrow our stable down to just one bike to do it all, the new Spider would be at the top of a very short list. It's not often a brand pulls off a bike that can climb as well as it descends, but Intense have found the sweet-spot with the Spider 275C

If you commissioned a rock star, a sniper, and madman to design a bike, you’d get the Spider 275 Carbon. It’s light, agile, and precise, but with aggressive, long and low geometry, it’s ready to throw-down and party on any descent.
The all new Intense Spider is a bike that will have you smiling no matter if you're going up, or down the hill. It can hang on an XC ride with its efficient pedaling while still having the Intense pedigree to descend like a bike in the 150-160mm category.
A fun, playful and light bike that possesses inherent qualities that make it more than the sum of it’s individual parts.
Light enough to be raced cross-country, yet capable enough to tackle seriously technical trails. Intense just popped out the proverbial unicorn.
