Commencal Absolut Max Max Atherton Edition

Some of you may have seen this @ icebike a few weeks ago…these have just hit the UK shores and are ready to ship.

Albert from Madison just beamed us this info over, at £399 for a complete bike it looks like it could be good.

Available in limited numbers featuring Atherton racing inspired graphics, the ethos around the bike hasn’t changed since the introduction of the original MaxMax a few years ago – a tough, affordable and easily upgraded introduction in the world of dirt jumping.

This point is emphasized by the use of the exact same 6061 T6 aluminum frame that is featured on all the higher-spec Absolut 1&2 full bikes. The new frame features arguably the most versatile dropouts on the market, allowing the use of a rear derailleur and pretty much all rear 135mm hub standards on the market (10mm, 12mm, 12mm Maxle or Singlespeed hubs) via the modular hanger/dropout system.

The bike also features Commencal’s new dirt fork which replaces the heavier 5pc fork used in previous year’s models, helping to drop weight.
