Commencal Reveals World Champs Bikes for Myriam Nicole, Thibaut Daprela, Greg Williamson, & More

Oct 7, 2020
by COMMENCAL bicycles  
Every year we like to work on special artwork for the frames of our riders selected to race the DH World Champs.
For Leogang 2020, we have gone with understated and classy designs.

For this ‘special' year we also wanted to add a message.
A message of tolerance and unity.
COVID 19 has sowed doubt in many minds, distanced us from each other and with far more profound consequences than we imagine.

Now is the time to be more united, solid, closer and caring.
We wanted to pass on this message, more utopian than political, because it represents us and what's on our minds.
In addition, it embodies the values of our sport.
And that's a way to get the message out again, as widely as possible.
Let’s never stop having this conversation!


-Yannick Commencal.


Myriam NICOLE









Greg WILLIAMSON








Thibaut DAPRELA










Camille BALANCHE







Monika HRASTNIK







Benoit COULANGES

 Commencal should have given everyone a pair of skis instead with this forecast.

 I love the message on the bikes. Best paint job ever.

 Beautiful paint jobs and happy to see brands like this put their statement on things out there. Looks like they ran out of creativity when they got to Gregs bike though.

 Greg's looks the best to me, must just be me? I'd rather be understated myself.

 @Trail6: For personal use, yes I agree... but in terms of overall appeal, I think Myriam Nicole's bike is a masterpiece. Every piece is elegant. I want to hang it on my wall!!!

 @Trail6: if the fork lowers would've been the same colour as the frame, that would've been ever better IMO

 Can I get that top tube wrap for my Meta?! Love the message. Peace and love!!!

 Commencal do so much right. From video edits, to team bikes, to the model range & team riders. Looking forward to seeing these covered in mud at 100mph.

 Does SRAM have some new rotors coming out or what? Myriam has a different one up front than in the back and Daprela has them front and rear. They need to come up with something better and i hope this could be it

 they just look like the old Avid G2 rotors which is interesting

 @qman11: yeah they look similar, but not exact.
@gnarcissistictendency: Good eye!!

 Those look like regular 203mm Avid G2CS rotors to me.

 Hey, new Enve DH rims, lower profile, external nipples

 Thibraut's high polished looks so good. I wish more aluminium frame makers offered it.

 Greg Williamson got a bum deal.

 In contrast to Myriams, which has way too much going on, its a nice contrast. Simple, and shows off the curves of the bike. I think its rad.

 Is that a modified xx1 cassette on the back of Myriam Nicole's bike?
  • 1 0
 It looks like the one the norco guys were running last year but in gold now
  • 1 0
 @Bikerdude137: It looks like the teeth have the same profile of xx1
  • 2 1
 I wonder why some of the bikes have a chain keeper and some don't?

 PomPom's bike is very dope.
  • 10 10
 I need to put some French political stuff all over my bike that I have zero clue about.
  • 6 3
 Yes, you definitely should. That will really show them! Please show us pictures afterwards. You could do a youtube video about it also, title it something like "PB comment section chad DESTROYS French SJW bike company". Strong statement my dude, go for it.

 @Rusettipasta: Why you sooo upset lady. The truth butthurt you.
  • 5 2
 @ReeferSouthrland: Just a bit amused that you're whingeing about Commencal's stickers in half a dozen comments. But go on.
  • 3 1
 You could probably find a shit-ton of similar causes in France. Slightly more difficult for Andorra, that other country that Commencal comes from, though ????

 @warpcow: France is beatiful, and the food!!!! been all over for decades skiing mostly and biking. I lost a job once because I took too much PTO there.

 Balfa 2 step dh is looking better than Commencal supreme v4 as for me

 Did any one notice how disgusting those Intense prototypes looked.

 Yah but they are not doing it now. Someone needs to fly the metal, rearward wheel path, plow sled flag, and Commencal are doing a fine job.
  • 3 0
 They did not. I believe Balfa did it first with the BB7.
  • 1 1
 Literally dozens and probably hundreds of bike makers did high pivots before the canfield bros picked up a torch.

 BLM Bike srsly?

 Hell Yes.

Do you have problem with that?
