Video: Commencal Muc-Off Announces New Partnerships with Fox and Dharco

Jan 27, 2021

Press Release: Commencal / Muc Off

After a long few weeks, it’s time for Commencal / Muc Off by Riding Addiction to let the cat out of the bag. Huh, wait, the cat isn’t super appropriate there (can you guess who it is yet?). We are thrilled to announce new partnerships with Fox and Dharco.


Riding Fox suspension opens a new chapter in our team’s history. We are incredibly proud to welcome onboard the prestigious and performance-driven Californian brand.

Even in our very first test session, the new products felt incredible – although we can’t wait to haunt Jordi’s nights (and days) with endless setup ideas.

The whole team is extremely stoked about the new suspension; we have great expectations for the benefits it will bring to our racing.


We have always been demanding in our choice of riding kit. Fortunately, things clicked with Dharco as soon as we started talking.

We share the same values: MTB is an amazing lifestyle - while having fun is important, having fun and looking great is even better.

We’re cooking up some real fresh race kits, you guys better watch out.

Other partnerships and news

We’re delighted to extend Thibaut Daprela'ss contract with the team for a further two years. After dominating as a Junior, Thibaut had a stunning first season in the Elite field in 2020. He will join team legends Myriam Nicole and Amaury Pierron in aiming for the top of the podium. Our protégé Tristan Lemire will debut in the Junior category in 2021; we look forward to seeing his progression.

Finally, the Ruffin brothers, Gaëtan and Thibaut, will continue multi-tasking as team owners, managers and riders, determined as always.

This will be our 13th season working with Commencal . It’s incredible to see the brand’s passion for racing and commitment to our success while helping us grow along the way. Let’s make it a lucky 13th.

MUC-OFF remains a recent addition to the team; the shortened 2020 season didn’t quite let us show what we are capable of with the British crew. We have some exciting projects in the pipeline to keep you entertained along the way. Whatever the case, we will always shine brightly (market-leading cleaning product pun intended).

We are also glad to continue partnerships with a range of amazing people and brands including Enve (wheels and cockpits), Schwalbe (tires), Bell (helmets), and Fizik, Oakley, Chris King, Lizard Skins, HT, Lululemon, CN Spoke, Unior, E*Thirteen,Five Ten,Marsh Guard, Feedback, GoPro, Ryno Power, Pro-Bolt, Forbike and Stendec Oils (thoughts to our late friend Dave Garland and his wife Mirka).

Also, we officially welcome braking systems specialist Galfer, as well as, Tubolight, the lightest inner tire insert, Dainese, the legendary protective gears,Race Face cranksets, Burgtec adding their Direct Mount MK3 stems to our DH cockpits, Jagwire, the number-one cable and housing brand. Finally, we will carry our gear in style with DB (previously known as Douchebags).

The upcoming season is just around the corner. We can’t wait to get between the tapes with our new-look bikes and kit!

Don’t forget to follow @commencal_mucoff, @commencalbikes, @muc-off, @ridefoxbike @dharcoclothing to keep track of us throughout the year.

Stay tuned!

 I like the dialled series but I also like how Rockshox don’t scream and shout about their product and still win a lot of races!

If it wasn’t broken why fix it haha

 Yeah, XT brake as the choice...

 Yeah Sram drivetrain and Shimano brakes it looks like from the pics. Surely a team of this size didn't struggle to get a new sponsor?

 @melonhead1145: It's probably because of going with Galfers' pads and rotors. The XT caliper there seems to have its logo removed. Also curious why they didn't go with XTR. Maybe availability.

 @eriv: Best rotors in the game!

 @eriv: I'm sure there are other teams with pad/rotors sponsors who are still sponsored by Sram/Shimano. Although I can't be bothered to look it up to confirm

 Speculation Mode: ON

It was probably SRAM and RockShox who decided not to renew with Commencal / Muc Off, and to build a new team around Vali Höll, in addition to the partnership they already have with the Trek Factory Racing's downhill squad (Reece Wilson, Charlie Harrison, Kade Edwards and Loris Vergier). I guess the RockShox Trek Race Team as a whole is less expensive than a sponsorship with the Commencal / Muc Off Team. Hence the lack of an official partner at this time.

On the XT brakes, all their factory supremes that don't run Rockshox forks have XT's (ones with rockshox run code's).
For drivetrain I believe they are all sram GX

 How does the 2mm thickness 223 rotor work in shimano calipers that are designed to run 1.8 mm thickness? I was interested in @galferusa rotors to run in my saints but figured it would be too tight since the 223 diameter doesn't come in a 1.8 mm thickness

 @Rastis1: We have multiple customers running this combination without issue! May need to reset your pistons and do a quick brake bleed is all.

 @Rastis1: I also ran XT's with the 223 rotors last year. No problems at all

 Holy smokes Batman. Look at that brake adaptor!!!

 What a mess! I guess even the pros are hit by corona. Or maybe just testing, who knows.
Joystick stem in some pictures and burgtec in others??
sram cranks and drivetrain, but they announce race face as cranks sponsor
shimano brakes with galfer rotors
enve rims are supposed to have that rim strip that is magical and prevents flats but they are using the tubolight insert? holy shit those wheels will be massive! Assuming they are using the m9 rims(672g ) plus magic marys(1435g) +tubolight(90g) cking hubs are not the lightest also we are talking about approx 2700 gram for a rear wheel lets say. holy sh1t.
Not hating, just speaking my mind. I love Commencal.

 The factory Commencal team is now not the factory team as Dorval, 100% and 21 all look more factory now and have a more coherent set of sponsors. Strange times, no commencal teams on Rockshox either.

 Looks like a new rear triangle and have gone back to a bolt on dropouts. Supreme v4.5 soon?
  • 1 0
 Yeah so they can go 27 or 29 in the back.

 If the rear end of this bike is as bottomless as everyone says, it definitely needs a larger, more rigid fork than a Boxxer IMO.

 Love the DHaRCO kit, definitely my favourite brand.

 Maybe Loris could borrow Amaury's bike here and there and take it to Jordi for some more wonderful and dialed content.
