PURE SPEED MACHINE.
With the Sniper T we have created a pure full-suspension cross-country trail bike with a true INTENSE spirit. With the same soul as its sibling the Sniper XC, it features a super lightweight full carbon frame, rolling on 29” wheels, with progressive XC trail geometry but this time with 120mm of travel. The extra 20mm of suspension means that the Sniper T is still all about off-road speed… both up and down, but that you get a slightly plusher ride. It is fast, fiery and fun, a truly innovative XC trail bike… INTENSE style.

MODERN DAY XC.
It’s all about the geometry. Long, low and slack is no longer just for the downhill crowd, it’s the ‘new normal’ for XC trail bikes too… it’s real a game changer. We believe that short travel bikes should descend like their long-travel siblings, so with the Sniper T we've created an XC trail bike with an aggressive DH spirit. It loves going uphill, but it always has one eye on the descents. A longer toptube, shorter stem, wider bars, lower bottom bracket and slacker headangle all make for an exciting yet balanced bike. It is a complete system that is designed to work as one.
The Sniper T’s numbers are progressive, with geometry and design that’s normally only seen on trail or enduro bikes… but it works. With sharp and crisp handling, and responsive pedaling, it is confident and efficient on the climbs – and with its extra travel it is now even more stable, controlled and direct on the descents. Add into that mix dropper posts and 1x12 gearing and you have what we believe to be the ultimate cross-country trail bike.
LIGHT, FAST, AGILE, AND FUN.
We know that riding the Sniper T will fill you with confidence. Climbing, descending or cruising along… it does it all with a powerful yet efficient ease. The way the Sniper covers the ground so quickly and effortlessly is inspiring and it is nothing short of a revelation on the descents.
The Sniper T is our trail bike thrasher, and it's got the INTENSE spirit through and through. Sitting in the middle ground between a full-on XC bike (Sniper XC) and a slightly longer travel trail bike (Primer) the Sniper T offers the best of both worlds. You won’t be disappointed. It’s everything you could want in a modern day cross-country trail bike.
THE JS TUNED XC (CROSS COUNTRY) LINK.
We talk about JS Suspension a lot here at INTENSE. JS stands for Jeff Steber (our founder and CEO) and simply put it is a refined suspension system that uses two counter-rotating links to connect the front and rear triangles of the bike. The links are specifically placed to allow for separation between the pedaling and braking forces from the suspension performance. Every model in our range has its own personal and specific JS tune.
For the Sniper T our engineering team put the focus on optimized pedaling performance, tweaking the shock tune to suit typical trail riding terrain. The suspension for the Sniper was designed for supple sensitivity on small bumps, mid-support for a hard pedaling efficiency in and out of the saddle, and a good progression through the end of the stroke, and of course with the Sniper T you get the luxury of a bit more travel.

Amazing bike on the trail. Like small and light enduro. Compared with my HT Trek Procaliber, the ascent up the hill is bit slower. But who cares?
No complaints. It meets my expectations
