    Intense ACV Foundation 27.5 Plus Mountain Bike 2017 Brown/Gold ,  On

    Let’s be clear here, the ACV is a ground-up Plus specific design. Sure, you can clamp in a pair of 29in wheels if you want, but this bike is specifically optimised around chubby tyres. That means a split-spar swingarm design, which differs from the single-spar configuration found on models like the Tracer, and no provision for a front derailleur.

    What it does share with other bikes in the range, are the counter-rotating links of the VPP suspension design — now rebranded J.S. Tune — and the ability to change the travel. Although designed as a 130mm bike, you can also run the ACV with 115mm by moving the shock on the upper link.

    Only the travel changes, not the geometry, but quite why anyone would use this short travel setting is beyond me, because the ACV is as efficient a pedalling bike as I have ridden in a long time. Even with the Monarch RT3 Debonair shock fully open. Coupled with the longish chainstays — the 440mm measurement grows in the sag position — and the steep seat tube angle and Plus tyres, it delivers serious climbing prowess.

    On rolling singletrack there’s planted cornering, thanks to the ultra-low bottom bracket, and plenty of momentum. But if I’m being picky, the ACV doesn’t feel as sensitive over small bumps as its brother from another mother, the Santa Cruz Hightower. It’s a moot point, however, as the tyres eradicate so much of the trail chatter anyway, and the Intense definitely has a more stable dynamic geometry than the Hightower.

    We like the shape of the ACV too, with the large frame we rode being a smidge longer and slacker than its VPP rival. And the taller head tube puts you in a more commanding position when running smaller diameter Plus tyres. Even so, at 5ft 10in I wouldn’t think twice about upsizing to an XL frame if I could find a way to make a 125mm dropper post work with my max saddle height.

    Tyre-wise, Intense has gone for the 2.8in Maxxis Ikon + front and rear. This is a great rear tyre, but the Maxxis Recon + would have made a much better choice up front, as it allows a far more aggressive riding style without sacrificing rolling speed.

    Then there’s the DT Swiss front hub, which lacks the stiffness-improving Torque Caps to mesh with the oversized flanges on the RockShox Pike fork. And finally, the KS Lev seatpost fitted to our test bike has been upgraded to a Reverb for production.
