Brendan Howey Video - Commencal Supreme FR

Jun 30, 2012 at 22:39
by Aaron LaRocque  
The Commencal Supreme FR might be the perfect 'Brendan Howey' bike - it's flickable, twistable, and playful on trails; it's a downhill bike you can x-up. It's a lighter, freeride version of a World Championship winning downhill platform. It's as capable in the bike park as it is in the back country. You can jump it on Saturday and race it on Sunday. In Howey's hands it's the ultimate weapon.

Just riding bikes is all
  Clean lines and dialed geometry, it's a thing of beauty
Just riding bikes is all
  Howey sees things differently than most
Just riding bikes is all
  Howey hucks the creek gap... too bad the creek was dry
Just riding bikes
  Howey dug most of the features in this video solo. Ride what you dig.

 I agree the bike is gorgeous. I'm a huge fan of simple lines and this one ties it all together. Looked like a hardtail at first glance! Bet it would be a fun bike for sure. And that trail looks awesome as well!

 That bike if f*cking GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was in love with the Meta SX and now this??? I'm loving nearly every bike in their catalog, now I'd just like to see more (or any???) US dealers cause I've never seen one anywhere in the states (in a shop) and I'd absolutely LOVE to check this guy out in person aye.

 I saw this bike in the line up at Whistler last week and was trying to figure out if i'd missed an announcement, I wonder if it was Howey behind the helmet. One of these and a Meta AM would be a very nice stable of bikes for the North Shore/Squamish/Whistler/Pemberton rider.
