The Commencal is a solid performer and feels right at home on the big terrain of the World Cup circuit and North Wales (Atherton HQ).
The geometry and styling is spot on and the linkage actuated rear suspension is up there as one of the best. The frame is a little weightier than some, but with the right componentry can be built into a stealth winning machine; as demonstrated by the Athertons.
The Supreme DH Racing is available as a frame only for £2,199.99 or as featured here, the ‘Factory Frameset’ with a Fox RC4 custom rear shock, Fox 40 RC2 forks, Sunline stem and bar, Thomson seatpost and an e.thirteen LG1+ chainguide. £3,299.99
