by COMMENCAL bicycles  


We’re very happy to announce the signing of Ángel Suárez to the Commencal family for the next two years!

In recent seasons his talent, motivation and achievements have impressed. Ángel Suárez is one of the best DH riders of his generation, at home in Spain where he won the National Championships, and in World Cup competition where he finished in the top 10 twice and secured 7th place in the overall in 2020!

Ángel Suárez joins the Commencal 21 Team alongside Team Manager Charlie Julia as well as Junior teammate, Pau Menoyo. With the arrival of Ángel Suárez the team takes on a whole new dimension!

First and foremost racing a very busy schedule, Ángel Suárez will also visit our office in Andorra regularly to help us develop our race and production bikes. He'll also be involved in several video projects throughout the year.

¡Bienvenido Ángel!

 no wonder the prices of commy bikes have be going up, they have hundreds of sponsored riders.

 @slayerdegnar: I thought that a couple of weeks ago when looking at the Commie website. There isn't anything cheap on there except the bottom spec these days. They had a rep as a value brand, but they aren't really anymore.

 You also have a team with Pierron little brother Antoine and Matteo Ininguez (he won in junior in Vallnord in 2019) and x1 racing with Dylan Levesque, so you have at least 6 teams able to put a rider inside the top 20!

 @jaame: What other bike brand has a bad ass enduro bike with full Shimano XT, Fox Factory 38 and Fox Factory Float X2 for $4,999.

 Some of the best I've seen for a "welcome, new rider" spread. Lighting, colors, framing, editing, everything was done right.

 Such amazing work by Léon Perrin on the video. His ability to entice you into the video and set a mood and a vibe that goes so well with the riding is amazing.

 Didn’t he put in some solid results last season? He seemed to be definitely trending in the right direction.

 Just nice to see him healthy finally. So many injuries for him up until now. Good luck in 2021 Angel!

 @ruggedman: I bet he's gonna be faster on a Commencal.

 That was the most pleasant bike video I've seen in a while. No weird bro-ey beat music, and no spastic zooming/panning to make things look faster. The tires and freewheels still heard over the music and if it looks fast, it means he's going fast.

 Well, this is how you do a new rider introduction. Compared to this Danny Hart's, also from today, looks kinda poor: www.pinkbike.com/news/danny-hart-signs-with-cube-factory-team.html

 Today Danny got what he deserves: www.pinkbike.com/news/video-danny-hart-charging-hard-on-his-new-cub-downhill-bike.html

I don't understand why they did this short/basic press release yesterday at first and the video today...

 I want Leon and Gaetan as videographers if I'm getting married. Or buried. Or whatever else I do, like pooping. It will be just beautiful.

 Ha! Great news!

Never thought i’d hear one of my favourite songs in a ... mountainbike video. If you got a good stereo or pair of headphones turn it up and listen to Agnes Obel, Fuel to Fire.

 The Commencal is still such a good looking DH bike!

 Is it is fair to say it's a better bike but a weaker team? Looking forward to seeing how Angel does.

 No really, but congrats to Angel!

 Commencal it's been killing it in the DHWC, have they not? at least better than YT IMO

 @Narro2: Yes they have - how quickly people forget about Amaury Pierron!!!
  • 3 0
 @Narro2: commencal 21 is a different team to commencal riding addiction and commencal 100%. So, it is a weaker team.

 @riish: oh, ok fair enogh

 So I think some people got where I was coming from, it’s not the full factory Commencal team, that would be a no brained. Definitely trading what’s got to be one of the most successful team managers in Martin Whitely for a bike that’s had massive success in the last few years.
So what’s more important, the bike or the team?

 I am so happy to see riders getting sponsorship in these times that have greatly changed how marketing budgets are being applied across different industries. Very well deserved. God bless you, Angel!

 Commencal make the coolest bikes. Love their style. Aluminum bikes are so punk rock. Seeing the welds on the frame make me think bad ass.
