Intense Podium XLT Pro 2012 Frame
The new 2012 Podium frames feature the same race-proven geometry and ride as the Race and Stinger frames, but with a lower weight,10/20mm axle compatibility, smooth double-pass welds and new paint and graphics.
The weight loss comes from new butting profiles in the tube sets. Each tube was meticulously engineered to be lighter weight, yet retain strength and rigidity where needed. A Pro XL Limited frame weighs in at only 3.53 pounds, a weight loss of a half a pound. Each Limited frame includes two sets of chain tensioner Blocks for the proprietary rear dropouts. The forged and precision CNC-machined Blocks work with either standard 10-millimeter axle hubs or the stiffer Sinz Elite 20-millimeter through-axle iHubs. Use the 10-millimeter blocks and run any standard wheel set or, for better gate snaps, a more powerful and efficient pull down the first straight and better handling, use the 20-millimeter blocks with the Sinz Elite 20-millimeter iHub wheels.
Double-pass welds give each joint a smooth finish while boosting weld strength. This is the frame used by Kelvin Batey and the UK Intense team - the no.1 race team in the UK.
