DESIGNED FOR YOUR NEXT ADVENTURE
The ACV (Air Cushioned Vehicle) is a specifically designed 27.5+ bike that was created out of a necessity for adventure. a wider 2.8” tire offers ultimate traction climbing or descending any terrain, while the agile geometry and 130mm adjustable travel deliver supreme ride quality. Fluctuating the tire pressure between 12-25 PSI adds another level of ride preference to the ACV. More undampened suspension and sidewall grip at lower PSI allows riders a smooth ascent through the rockiest of trails.

THE ACV IN ACTION
What Editors Are Saying
Intense really do seem to have made some excellent revisions to the earlier generation carbon frames in looks, detail and rear stiffness. This is one hell of a great looking bike and one of the most fun bikes we have ever ridden. Looking closely at the design and shape of the tubing plus the quality of the paint’s finish it is evident that Intense are well and truly back in the game with this model!
Jim Buchanan, Enduro MTB
Get settled on the right tire pressures (I ran 16psi up front, 18psi in the rear) and rattle into rough, rooty, rock strewn trails and you’ll be surprised with what you can get away when it comes to line choice. The big tires do a great job of smoothing out nadgery, speed-sapping bumps and chunder, offering impressive traction, especially on looser, dry trails or on really technical climbs.
Rob Weaver, BikeRadar
Nothing about the ACV felt cumbersome or sluggish. It’s a palyful bike that drives you to seek out alternate lines and punch through rocks and roots without hesitation.
