2010 Commencal products sneak peak

Commencal bikes have stepped things up by redesigning the furious for 2010. The 2010 Meta 5 and Super 4 have had a seen list of improvements. From total frame redesign to carbon fiber frames.
These are some sneak peak products of 2010 by Commencal !Commencal has drastically changed the look of the new furious. The new concentric BB pivot, a new 1-1/8" top headset and a 1.5" bottom one, this system is currently being used by trek also known as E2. Less travel for the new furious which will now be rocking 5" of travel.

The new furious

The frame design, linkage and geo have been entirely redesigned. As you can see, the bike is equipped with single speed. The bike has a more slope style and dirt jump geometry compared to the 09 furious which was a Free ride killer.
Details have been very limited since these pictures have been leaked on the internet with few details concerning the bikes.


Meta 5 carbon


Meta 5 carbon

The 2010 Meta 5's front triangle will be made entirely of carbon while as the rear triangle will be made from aluminum.
They design has remained the same.


Super 4

The new 2010 super 4 is the same as the Meta 5, front triangle is made of carbon and rear triangle is made of aluminum.
No major changes.

Both the Meta 5 carbon and super 4 carbon use the contact system single pivot swing arm and rocker linkage used during previous years, but in 2010 decided to change and use carbon.
The use of carbon in the front triangle will drastically stiffen up the front triangle and strengthen. From rumors we have heard commencal will, more than likely creat a carbon swingarm. Using a carbon swingarm will stiffen up the back as well as strengthening it.

The furious on the other hand had a total makeover, new frame design, linkage, pivot and geometry makes it very similar to the bottlerocket from transition bikes. One of the key elements that distinguish the two is that transition uses single pivot, while as for commencal used the concentric BB pivot. The amount of travel also differs from transition since the bottlerocket has 5.5" of travel and the 2010 furious have only 5".
