PRESS RELEASE: Commencal

Conor MacFarlane has made a name for himself in the freeride MTB world. Accustomed to events such as Red Bull Rampage, Crankworx and The Fest Series, he is known for going big in his own unique style!

Born in Scotland to an Irish mother and a Kiwi father, he quickly returned to Queenstown NZ where he still lives today. It was here, at SkyLine Queenstown, that he learned to ride and progress.

Quickly attracted more towards DH and Dirt, which he considers to be the most fun, our paths could only cross. We are excited to share a new stage in his career with him!

 Commencal doesn't mess around. If it can't be perfect due to constraints then skip it. The last thing they'd want to do is release something eye-rolling like that Agassiz/Dakine video.

 Not really tbh they are not that attractive to me but yeah I’m not denying they’re rippers n fun machines. I just don’t like them as much as other designs @upside:

 Man does he swap brands a lot . Isn't this his third in four years? What's (not) surprising is how great of a rider he is on all three!

 Yup. Two years on Knolly, then went to Intense for what read at the time like a decent payout. But Intense always seemed a weird fit... Hopefully Commencal and Conor are more sympatico!

 Knolly's gone full enduro. Intense went full race. Commencal has a full freeride program. It was just a matter of finding the right fit. YT, Commencal, and Scott are where it's at for high level mountain biking.
