 Best video I've seen in a while. The "it broke" and walking out dragging the bike had me cracking up so bad

 that was intense

 Apparently the guy landed this bad already multiple times before it broke. Other brand's frames might have suffered the same. And Intense replaced it for him quickly. ... thats what the same post on Instagram says.

 Yes and yes.

 Good on Intense, 'cuz that whole thing calls into question the superior strength argument for carbon far I's concerned. Head tube's gotta be tough. Can't be skimpin' on a head tube.

 That is a huge design flaw that Intense should look into.

 Really? Casing a jump like that? Haha I'm not surprised it broke.

 The big ol' "No!" right after take off absolutely kills me. I know that feeling.

 Amazed he suffered little if any injury. Also, I like this dudes sense of humor. Most would probably freak out after seeing an expensive bike break.

Props to Intense for replacing his frame~ I'm not sure what model Intense but if it's classified as an enduro/AM rig then I'd say they need to beef up the headtube a bit. If it's a XC/trail bike then it definitely isn't made for big hits like that.

 He was fine and riding a loaner bike the next day! Intense had him back up and running in a week. Cant be mad about the service or product.... no bike would of survived the multiple attempts.

 @NorthcountyAM: thanks for giving a little more insight into the events leading up to the break. I give props to the rider for giving it his all and not quitting as well as having a great sense of humor about it all. He proves to me he's a rider who's all about having fun~

 Intense might not be so happy to see this in the Fail of the Month. I've seen and hit things a lot harder than this myself and never seen the head tube fail like this.

 Must be why all those Intense frames are always on sale

 Pedal! Laughed my ass off, still don't trust a frame you bake in an oven, think I might regress to 4130.

 I bet they don't announce a winner this month. I would bet intense will take good care of this fella!

 That gorilla tape is good haha not even a crack in his frame take a closer look ! Looks like tape flying of as he hits the floor his bars are still on his forks so how did he do that without damaging the front of his bike haha.
  • + 2
 If you look closely the frame tube area (red) where it holds the fork looks like it has crack. The carbon just took its form back. I guess
  • + 10
 Best way to describe it: it unzipped. And yes the carbon took its shape after the fork left.

 That was the headtube badge I think.

 @jpshore: it was the badge
