Claire Buchar - Bike Check

Aug 20, 2008
by Tyler Maine  
Claire Buchar is a staple on the Canadian DH scene and has made a name for herself amongst the international field as well. This year has been looking really good for her with some new major sponsors coming on board and even more great support from long term sponsors.

She has her own program and his running it well, so take a moment and check out her new Intense M6 and her video interview inside:Intense delivered Claire a brand new custom fitted M6 a few weeks back and she's been tearing the trails up. Shortly after that, RockShox gave her the only 10.5" eye to eye Vivid in existence. Yep she's hit the big leagues now!

Long time supporters like SRAM, Chromag and Sombrio make sure her bikes are running well and that she's looking good while playing in the dirt. This bike is ready for anything you can throw at it and looks amazing.
