MADE IN THE USA
Intense Aluminum frames are still proudly made in their factory in Temecula, California by skilled craftsmen, machinists and welders. Intense Carbon Fiber frames are designed and assembled in California. Why is Intense one of the very few-remaining US bicycle manufacturers? When all others have flown the coop, why stay put? Why do they bother to keep manufacturing in the US? It’s harder, more expensive, puts a heavier burden on resources and is the cause of many sleepless nights for many people – so why deal with the extra hassle? The reason is as simple as it is complicated, but in short – it’s their way of keeping the American Dream alive.
CARBON FIBER FRAMES
Lighter. Stronger. Better. Carbon fiber is the frame material of choice for the most discerning, most competitive riders and racers. Intense's German-engineered carbon combines optimum stiffness and damping with minimum weight for a superior and responsive ride.
INTENSE SINCE 1990

It is his personal mission to design and refine each model to achieve the highest possible level of performance and craftsmanship. Steber has spent over 20 years developing this art.
