The Cura is a clean, simple, and great riding brake designed to fit all riders and their bikes. The lever, designed for the human factor, is our most ergonomic and intuitive yet. With how capable mountain bikes have become at conquering any trail our caliper is proficient in taming the bike to overcome the trail.
This new era of Formula disc brakes has given us the chance to change our status quo. The Cura is Formula’s first brake to use mineral oil. Our brake performance standards have always been out of the range for the inclusion of mineral oil. We have finally found and use a mineral oil that complements the performance of our brakes.
The Formula Cura has been designed from top to bottom with riders in mind. In our laboratory, and on the race track, we have confirmed that the Cura is an extremely powerful, wide range brake that feels comfortable from weekend warriors and Enduro riders to World Cup Downhill racers. We believe that brakes are one of the most personal and intimate parts of the bike, this is why we have simplicity and efficiency in mind when we design it.

The MixMaster handlebar clamp is an option for all Formula brakes. This simple upgrade allows for the direct attachment of Shimano (I-Spec B only) and SRAM shifters on your Formula brake, giving the bike a clean look. Perfect to help de-clutter handlebars busy with the many clamps today’s bikes employ.
Speed Lock technology allows for the disconnection and connection of the hose multiple times without losing fluid or introducing air into the brake. The Speed Lock hose is the best option for internally routed frames, the traveler who packs their bike, or anyone who is constantly assembling/disassembling their bike.
We are proud to introduce our new disc. After more than three years of development we have arrived at a design that combines the best of all the “must have” features in a disc: extreme lateral stiffness that guarantees impact resistance by protecting the disk from unwanted damage; reduced unwanted noise caused by friction; a special anti-noise design which reduces the risk of resonance and vibrations; reduced pad wear.
Seamless bike socks for maximum comfort and breathability.
Enjoy maximum comfort and breathability, for superior performance.
HG HALLERBOS seamless socks are made from a single thread, making them extremely light and allowing the thickness to vary. This means that the areas most subject to wear, such as heel and toes, can be reinforced and the breathability is increased where it’s needed most – shin, instep, and sole. The medium size is perfect for a range of uses, from Trail to Downhill.

INTENSE 2020 M16 FACTORY FRAME AND SHOCK
THE M16 IS A WORLD-CUP PROVEN DOWNHILL RACING MACHINE. IT IS THE CULMINATION OF DECADES OF R&D THAT BEGAN WITH IT’S FAMOUS PREDECESSOR, THE M1, AND HAS EVOLVED THROUGHOUT THE GENERATIONS OF M.
The M16 was introduced in 2016 and it was the first full-carbon downhill bike introduced INTENSE. With 27.5” wheels, the M16 remains an important race-ready model in the INTENSE line-up for those looking for a quality downhill bike with premium components and featuring the smaller wheel size.
Since the initial M16 model was released, the INTENSE Factory Racing team and INTENSE engineers have worked closely together to retune the kinematics of the bike for improved agility and handling over a variety of terrain. The fixed geometry of the bike compliments the bike’s new metric shock, which is longer than the predecessor for better overall stability and feeling, especially in race conditions. The geometry has been further improved and the bike has a slacker head angle, with a lower BB than the previous model. The M16 now boasts an ‘FRO’ (For Racing Only) bottom link, which works in harmony with the revised kinematics, geometry and metric shock on the bike, offering a premium riding experience thanks to INTENSE’s high-quality engineering. We put a lot of thought into the process of improving this already-impressive downhill model, and thanks to our accessibility to the toughest arenas in the world with some of the leading athletes on the planet, the M16 is a more complete and an even more race defined package for those looking for a 27.5” downhill bike. For 2020 the bike has a new striking look in the high-quality finish expected from INTENSE.
All bikes come pre-built and tuned through INTENSE authorized mechanics and will arrive to you with minimum assembly.
