More Eurobike madness today – this time with Intense unveiling the Intense Cycles M16 Carbon DH bike.

Intense Cycles M16 Carbon

Intense Cycles threw a bit of a party to celebrate the incredible looking M16 Carbon. Whilst others quaffed the canapes and bubbly, we enjoyed the view.

With the help of ex-World Cup racer Shaun Palmer, Intense Cycles creator Jeff Steber has bought new life to the iconic brand – along with some seriously exciting models of bike.

Most recently we saw the brand new M16 downhill bike, and the custom Shaun Palmer edition of it much to the delight of the MTB world – especially those familiar with Palmer from the first time round. Even though the alloy model has blown previous downhill frames out the water on both performance and weight, people have been screaming for the carbon fibre model that would surely follow the rest of the awesome new line up.

We’ll have full details to follow, but for now check out some of the stunning lines of what is without a doubt one of the best looking down hill bikes ever made…

From every angle, the M16 Carbon just looks right. Lovely flowing lines and a great use of colour.

You know it’s a good looking bike when a random cropped image looks this good. Awesome looking design.

Oh, so there’s a murdered out black version too? That’s going to make a few credit cards smoulder…

What do you think of the new Intense Cycles M16 Carbon? Is it up there with the Santa Cruz V10 carbon, or is this beast in it’s own level?
