“The new Spider 29 is finally shipping and I must say that this is one of the best rides we have developed. I personally am considering making one of these my go-to rig. The new Spider 29 handles anything I throw at it with style and I seem to have a new edge of confidence when tackling the tough stuff. The short 17.5″ chainstays give it mountain goat climbing abilities and the 4.2 – 4.7″ travel help the big wheels smooth out the terrain even better.The Spider 29 is in a bit of a league of its own in this travel range and at 6.8 – 7lb, is still reasonable in the weight range. The G1 replaceable drop out system allows all the popular axle fitment (currently 135 QR, Shimano 142 QR12, Syntace X12 and DT Swiss) and in the future or if your riding style changes so can your frame.We are very proud that this is another fine Intense frame made here in So Cal in our factory in good old U.S.A.”
