Commencal introduces version 3 of its 2011 Commencal Downhill Bike in celebration of 25 years of proven excellence. The company have riders with more than 80 world titles and look forward in acquiring more with the DH Bike which was designed for champions. The 2011 DH Bike was improved upon by giving it a lighter frame and changing the balance of the bike to meet new riding style standards.
The 2011 Commencal DH Bike features internal cable routing which had the cables tucked away from the air tube to the chainstays. New screws, pivots and aluminum axles are used. Commencal chose aluminum over chromoly since it is lighter and stiffer.
The new version also has anodized parts, laser finish on graphics and logo and hydroformed tubing. It uses a single-pivot linkage for its suspension design. It also has a floating shock to redirect the stress which normally affects the middle area of the downtube. This also makes it lighter.
Easier to handle and stable on corners, the bike is lower than the other models. The headtube is 1.5″ to accommodate zero stack headsets. The 2011 Commencal DH Bike will be available early 2011.
