 We are now stocking Intense Mountain Bikes and the first Recluse has just arrived in store. 

Intense Cycles was born in 1991 and have been made in America with pride ever since. Intense Cycles offers a complete line of mountain bikes with an authentic heritage and a compelling brand message.

NZ models and spec can be found on Wide Open




The Recluse is a skillfully crafted all-mountain machine. Featuring 150mm front and 140mm rear travel, and coupled with our proprietary JS Tuned Suspension, the Recluse will ascend with as much efficiency as it descends. If you're looking to push boundaries on the mountain, the Recluse will deliver the experience you've been chasing.
