Overall, both Intense bmx race bikes are created with quality and affordability in mind. However, the Sonic which is the Intense higher race bike line has some added race quality features that you won't find on the Code.
The bottomline, if price is an issue and you want to get on the track and look good with a name brand you can trust, go with the Intense Code.
If you are a serious racer looking for every competitive edge and you have the extra cash to bumb up, definately go with Intenses' hot Sonic. Sonic was made for racing.
