Turn Slapping & Dirt Loving with the Commencal 100% Team - Video

There's a fresh new look for the Commencal 100% Team in what promises to be an exciting 2018 DH season!

Having just returned from the team camp in Lousa, Portugal, the new multi-national team got together to give the 29er a comprehensive once-over, instantly bonded with both bike and each other


Who's Who? - A Quick Look:

Thomas Estaque - is back! He took a break at the end of last season after badly injuring his wrist in Leogang.




Bruce Klein - Strengthening the Commencal USA squad, Bruce has already been on podiums this year, including a win in the first US Southridge DH Series.




Reece Wilson - Adds a British element to the team roster. We can’t wait to go to Fort Bill with him and better his 11th place there last year.




Pierre-Charles Georges will continue to manage the riders and is, of course, a true professional at all times.

The Bikes - A Quick Look:



SUPREME 29. Is that all we need to say?
It’s already been on the top step of a National series podium, that’s a good start.

Reece says, "My favourite part about the bike is how well the guys at COMMENCAL have combined playful and race! It’s 100% designed to race yet its one of the most playful bikes I’ve ridden."

Here’s to Croatia!

New sponsors include e*thirteen, Afton Shoes, TRP Cycling for brakes, CushCore and Jagwire and the team will continue to work closely with Maxxis, HT, FOX, RIDE ALPHA and Slicy amongst others.

 I really like what e*13 have done with their dh wheels, you can get symmetrical spokes and a wide flange without having to have super duper mega boost (250mm) so supper strong wheels and no need to throw your new bike into the ocean every 3 months!!

Also those e*13 hubs sound incredible, not sure if they would get annoying though and don't mention replacing the cassette...

 These trails are begging me to ride them. Perhaps at only half the speed and probably more time spend upright...

 Looking forward to watching them this season! And to seeing how Bruce Klein does with a well supported team.

 Sponsored by Dakine, but Dakine doesn't sell pants, only shorts. So what pants are they riding in?

 Jersey and Race Pants are 100%

 Also guessing they'd happily make pants for their team riders, they do have the technology after all

 Yeah I went back and read and it looks like the video says "Commencal Media Dept. sponsored by Dakine" so maybe camera bags.
