Intense Cycles

Cross Country / Trail

Speed and agility combined. Unmatched pedal efficiency for those long climbs to the top and the agility and light on your feet ride quality you’re looking for on the descents.


A full line to conquer it all. Whether you’re looking for a long travel Enduro race bike or just a do everything no questions asked bike, we’ve got you covered.

Downhill / Gravity

The heritage of Intense Cycles is rooted in downhill racing and culture. Since our inception, we have designed and manufactured some the most capable and race-proven downhill mountain bikes available. Beginning with the world-renowned M1 frame to the current M16C, Intense has led the charge in the progression of not only the downhill bike itself, but the sport of downhill racing.

Mountain Trail Paddle Board and Bikes is proud to be an authorized Intense Cycles dealer. We know you have the option of buying several different brands of bikes, and many other bike shops are located near us so why choose to shop with us?

First of all, we believe that Intense makes the best bikes and we actually ride them ourselves. We can explain what bike works best for your style of riding. We also make it a point to test out different bikes on the same trails so we can understand each bike’s riding characteristics to help you select the best bike for you.

Our goal is to find the perfect bike for you. Not to force you onto a bike because it’s what we have on the sales floor.

Intense does not require us to stock a lot of their bikes. What this means for you is that we can have you try out a few demo bikes or floor models and figure out what works best for you. We will then be able to order the exact bike and build that you want, at the best price available.

To us, there is no better way to explore the mountains and fields of VT than by bicycle. Our goal is to help you get out and enjoy riding your bike in VT’s beautiful backyard.

We are a small shop run by one person, and a helper. We prefer people to call ahead so we can have any bikes you’d like to try ready to go. Also, since we are a small shop we aren’t always there- we still love riding and will go any chance we get 🙂 We don’t stock many parts and accessories at the shop since we are set up mostly for sales of new bikes. We can help you upgrade your ride, but to keep our parts and accessories inventory low which keeps our overhead low (this means better pricing for you) we order what you need, when you need it. This also helps us order the exact part you want. Need a non-boost hub set up on Enve 630 wheels with a red decal? We can order it for you. It would be just about impossible to keep all the different parts on hand with all the different specs now a days. We also don’t make a living doing service which is most shops bread and butter. If you have an issue with something you bought from us we will take care of it, but we are not set up to do normal everyday repairs. We can recommend some shops for you if you need it. Looking to upgrade your bike to a Push Industries ElevenSix or want a new Push Industries ACS3 installed? We’ve got you covered.

We also have relationships with some of the very best aftermarket bike product companies such as: Push Industries, DVO, Ohlins, Fox, Rock Shox, Sram, Shimano, Enve, Mavic, EThirteen, Pearl Izumi, among many, many others. As mentioned, we don’t stock much, but we can order just about anything you’ll need to updgrade your ride…from suspension, to wheels and everything in between.

We hope to see you soon!
