Reworked from their top of the line 27.5″ wheeled downhill mountain bike, the all-new Commencal Supreme DH 29er gets a wheel-size specific frame, suspension and geometry to make the most of the increased roll over. And now that Amaury Pierron’s took it for a successful (and very fast) run at Val Di Sole, it’s ready for its public debut.

The rear brake mount includes a pinch-bolt rear axle retention to keep everything locked into place. It positions the caliper for a 200mm rotor only. The linkage is designed for a progressive finish to prevent harsh bottom outs, with a 10mm main axle on Enduro bearings to keep it stiff and solid while it’s handling said impacts.

The 29er gets 205mm rear wheel travel, down from 220mm on the 27.5″. It keeps the high running chain, letting it roll directly over the main pivot point for the rear triangle.

The frame is hydroformed 6066 alloy with internal cable routing that hides the ports behind the fork’s bump stops on the top tube.

Or get the Race Kit that comes standard with the wheels, fork, shock, cassette and chain guide, then build it up with your own parts or through their custom configurator. Starts at $4,599, which means you may as well just get the complete bike and sell off the bits you don’t want…or keep it as backups, because you know you’re gonna break stuff. Both the frameset and complete bike are available February 1, 2018.

  1. And I remember when a downhill 29er was laughed at and only a glimmer in a few of our minds. Now, how about that 29er fat bike? Come on, you know a 29×6″ bike would give us the float that we want and need…
