The Intend Hero is built to fit into modern trail bikes. It is designed to be as light as possible without making compromises in performance since it is utilizing the same airspring and damping as our more gravity oriented models. No matter which type of trails you prefer, the Hero will happily have it for breakfast.
Our DH-ready damping and airspring provides an unmatched subtleness and a natural, predictable feel. In case you wish for more progression: A volume spacer which can be installed in 2 positions is included.
Our forks are especially easy to service and special tools are not required. Changing travel is also easily possible, no extra airshaft needed! Just open the fork with your regular toolset of choice and adjust travel spacers. For more information about service and travel adjustment check out the Tech section.
Lightweight and capable is the bottom line of the Intend Hero - For all the trail heroes out there.
