The M29 (2019) has a Threaded BB.

This makes me think that the rest of the 2019 lineup will be threaded as well? That would be awesome and I'm sure will win a lot of people over to the Intense side. I know it certainly will for me, that and financing.

Also, any idea of when they usually announce the new years lineup? Interbike?

know this is late. but they normally post them in september. I think they are delayed as to the tariff situation happening rn.
I sell and wrench their bike and have reached out to our reps. They don't have an answer as of yet,,, at least for my ears.

They will likely not switch to threaded as pf is stiffer,((typically)) has a lower q factor, and if installed correctly aids to reduce pressure on the bearings to prolong their life (have been told this by a sram tec).

DH bike normally have threaded as they dont care about drivetrain efficiency. It's more about having a quiet bike for the point of pros demanding them. from my understanding....
