Intense Launch Their M279 HP1 Prototype at Lourdes.

Aaron Gwin was spotted riding a hidden prototype in his last testing video, and here it is in all its glory, the Intense M279 HP1.

Designed around a Horst link 4-bar high pivot, the Intense M279 HP1 is the bike Intense Factory Racing will be taking between the tape this weekend in Lourdes.

High pivot bikes are all the rage these days, but will we see one on the top step this weekend? Aaron Gwin has one two of the three World Cups held there and is coming into this season fresh and fit.
