Dirt 100

Dirt 100 2011: Commencal Supreme 6

If you don’t get the whole ‘mini DH’ thing then you’ve obviously never ridden one of these. It might not offer the high speed stability of a full on DH bike, but if you’re not racing we don’t think that’s an issue, especially when the result of that trade–off is more fun than you can shake a stick at and leech like cornering ability. With it’s low bottom bracket and nigh on faultless suspension performance (which we still don’t believe is only 160mm) it’s hard to beat this bike when it comes to grip, but it’s the agility of this bike that makes us love it so much. It keeps you on your toes, but in a good buzz kind of way, which you often won’t find on a DH bike, and basically it just inspires you to be an idiot with a massive grin on your face.
