THE RECLUSE IN ACTION
What Editors Are Saying
Long before we tested the Pro build in Northwest Arkansas, I'd spent weeks on an Elite build, rallying it on some of the steepest descents in Whistler, British Columbia, and tackling some of Southern California's toughest climbs. And when all the loam and dust had settled, I'd found it to be one of the most capable, versatile bikes that Intense has ever made.

Once gravity started to take over, the Recluse breezed through switchbacks with more grace than I deserved, with the short chainstays allowing you to push hard through the corners via the back wheel.
At face value, the concept behind the new Intense Recluse seems clear, obvious even, though I can’t think of many bikes that succeed so well in combining a quick and nimble trail bike chassis with such assertive all-mountain/enduro geometry and robust build kit options. Picking up a Recluse is like purchasing a 450 HP Ford F-150 Raptor over a stock pickup, only much cooler, really.
