Intense added a new all-mountain bike to its fold, the Recluse. It has everything you would expect of a modern trail ripper: 150 mm front / 140 mm rear travel; 27.5 wheels with Boost dropouts; internal cable routing on a high-modulus carbon frame; fancy titanium hardware. It has the ability to run a front derailleur and still sneaks in one bottle cage mount.
The Recluse is available in five build kits from very nice to sell-your-extra-kidney nice. The base level “Foundation Build” still sports a carbon frame, a RockShox Pike fork, a dropper post and comes in the super-rad orange/pink frame color (as well as stealth black); not bad. If you want one, hope you have some extra coin. High-zoot Factory Build: $9,500; Foundation Build: $4,600. Everything else is in between. Sizes are small-XL with recommended rider heights ranging from 5’0” to 6’6”. Geometry charts below:
