Intense Cycles  offers the best linkages in the industry.  The JTT.  It seems to us that the approach of many other brands is to copy the JTT as closely as possible, but avoid getting sued, failing epically at the expense of the rider!  Intense offers many carbon, aluminum and premium carbon models that cover a wide section of market needs.  B

Their website is chock-full of great info and media, so be sure to check it out.  Below you will see our presentation on the models we stock most often.  

Intense Cycles has been around for almost a quarter century, with its early history solidly embedding the brand’s importance in the mountain bike world. These were the early days of mountain bike racing, where bike design moved forward in leaps and bounds.

Intense was an important part of the early innovation of suspension bicycles and, over the past 20 years, the company has retained much of its race-bred roots. Manufacturing all of their aluminum frames and the vast majority of the small parts that go along with them, Intense is one of few brands that can still lay claim to the truly American-made mountain bike.

Now with a line of carbon frames alongside the US-made aluminum models, Intense Cycles sits atop the micro-sized group of “truly authentic, unique, beautiful, focused brands...".   As the designer of JTT technology,
Intense pushes the performance of the acknowledged, inarguable best linkage designs in the business.
