 It's an awesome bike but I'm not a huge fan of an advertisement getting the VOD. Welp there's always tomorrow!
  • + 7
 I dont mind, the way i see it every vod is an advert for whatever bike and sponsors the rider uses. Props to intense for funding such a sick video to advertise what looks like a fun bike.

 probably shouldn't put down the business side of biking. If we didn't support the industry, we might not be where we are today. Plus it was still a great vid!
  • + 7
 Who cares, there's still some sick riding in the video

 was gonna pos prop Erik, but then noticed he was at 69....

 I was interested actually to hear a little more about the geometry, I think it's awesome that the BB sits below the axles.. I'm an engineer so maybe nobody else cares, but I'd love to try something like this and in some ways I have to say that a VOD like this for truly groundbreaking new technology is worth being highlighted today! There was great riding, videography and information, the research and development team for this machine deserve a day of recognition!

 the shot at 1:16 isn't even a 951 evo looks like an M9
  • + 3
 It's an m9 by the looks of it , pretty wierd , unless it's the 27.5 prototype
  • + 5
 Yea looks like an M9 but it can't be a prototype because its got boxxers on it and boxxers don't do 27.5 yet.
  • + 2
 so stoked to see the dorados on the bike though!
  • + 5
 If its from the article a fews days ago they had a standard m9 to compare it with. Someone must have got shots mixed up or thought no one would notice.

 i saw only dorado's sorry just seen the boxxer. that is weird.

 "No disadvantages so far".....I wonder why there is a 26 doing the cornering in this vid
  • + 1
 They did a 29er m9. That bike isn't it but they just have a 26" bike next to a 650b just to give a visual comparison between the two. Bigger wheels are the future.
  • + 1
 They had a 951 29er too that looked amazing !
  • + 1
 yes but they also had a 26 M9 that has always been amazing!
  • + 2
 literally the audio talks about they don't want the bike feeling heavy in corners as they show an M9 roosting a corner!
  • + 2
 You have to realize that hey, it may say M9, but it may actually be a 650B bike. Companies label their prototypes that they ride out in public with current labelling all the time, because they may not have new decals designed, or they want to keep it under wraps if they can. "because it's got boxxers on it and boxxers don't do 27.5 yet" - Industry guys have access to things long before consumers, that may be a 27.5 boxxer for all we know.

 Yet you need to realize hey, the video is called "Intense 951 Evo" therefore why would you place a shot of a different bike in the edit? It shows a lack of care and professionalism in the edit to actually make sure that the video follows through with what it was intended to deliver.

 @Coralcorn Are you sure? looks like a Trek Session...



hahahaha sorry i had to. and I swear its the first and only time I'll use that "joke".

 Adverts as VOD are not cool. I stopped watching when he said 'there really are no negatives', because that's clearly horseshit. It's engineering and physics, these things are compromises one way or the other, you cannot find a singular wheelsize that is objectively 'better' in every way, it is moronic to suggest so, unless apparently you're part of the marketing circlejerk.
  • + 2
 So you're suggesting that 26" is better than 27.5" strictly because it was around first?
  • - 2
 Terrafire, 27.5" wheels have always existed, they are called 650B and are used on touring and randonneuring bikes since before mountain biking became popular. In light of your comment, are you then suggesting '27.5"' wheels are better because they are a newer product? They both have advantages and disadvantages (maneuverability & strength vs speed), saying one size has no negatives is just daft. A more fitting description of 27.5" would be 'jack of all trades, master of none'.
  • - 2
 Terrafire you have completely missed what I was saying, go troll somewhere else.
  • + 8
 Ok, make an ad if you have to- but having a homepage dominated by advertising is bad enough- now VOD too? Besides, I think most people wanted one of these bikes before they saw the ad- it's as pointless as a Ferrari advert half way through Coronation Street. A few nice shots, but give VOD to the vids that get us amped to ride- not just part with our cash.
  • + 2
 Most of the time when these ads are vod there's more biking than advertisement, but this one was way more advertisement than riding, and the riding wasn't even good. If I wanted to watch commercials I'd watch tv.

 There's nothing wrong with 26" so why bover making loads more sizes 27.5 29er what's the point 26" does the job 26" all the way.

anyone with me?
  • + 2
 K honestly wheel size does not make you faster the rider makes the bike faster look at Aaron gwin at sea otter he one on 29" but I have my bets on that if he was riding 27.5" or 26" he still would have won .
  • + 1
 At the first round of the sda, the local boys who ride for intense, pitched up on their 650Bs and got smoked by a non local on 26" wheels! 4.6 and 8.4s off the pace.
The track was open, fast and super fun, so should have suited the bigger wheels.

Intense say no disadvantage.... it was expected that the local boy would win!

Think 2013 will be interesting, who does what, on what and if they still win on bigger wheels, is it the same margin as previous years etc.
  • + 1
 There's so little difference that only a troll would care and only a geek would swear by it. Nino Schurter won WChamps on 650b against a field of 29ers, which should be impossible according to realistic, logical people knowing true facts who tried both for a fact. It was a good moment to shut the hell up all the increased contact patch, angle of attack people. It didn't... they still roll the same ball. People will never learn that it all depends... cuz they heard it so many times and still talk crap
  • + 2
 26ers are probably going to stay for the sda, although it would be interesting if gwin decides to ride his 29er enduro at this years fort bill WC, lol
  • + 1
 Intense don't understand that a video of a bike being ridden well is its own advert. Do a closeup of the frame/wheels in a turn if you're THAT desperate to flog your new wheel size. We aren't idiots, we can read. We aren't blind, we can see the components.

Also in your voice over the sales/marketing guy says "we don't want to have it feel slow out of corners" and the rider comes into a corner and litterally almost stops.

 Learn from the past.....why in the late' s 70s road bikes stop using 27 inch wheels and choose a smaller option like 700c? In was hurt the performance riders...I took a much more energy to start moving them and on big tours like giro d Italy, grand tour of Austria where you climb for 300km and more it took even more...the athletes start suffering and their competitive live get shorter. Put this on mtb, it should be faster when going down...but the long spokes will have to be stronger in order to resist the bumpy tracks. In case they bent , will hurt! On a enduro, a bigger wheel will compromise the athletes strength and resistance...that's equal to more hurts! This is the beginning of a commercial battle... what is better to us? enjoy ride, friends and earth...if you feel faster on big wheels go ahead!! I want to ride my 26 until I get 99 years old( im 41 so no that much....)
  • + 2
