10 years has passed since Commencal was born and in those ten years it's been one hell of a ride!

In 1998 Max Commencal was left with two choices: buy back his own company that he was pushed out of, or wipe the slate clean and start afresh. “I preferred to start from zero. I didn’t want to give money to those guys…” he explains having turned his back on ten years of work at Sunn, leaving him to stare at a blank canvas. He added the first brush strokes in the form of Andorran investment, which led Max away from the south of France and into the principality tucked away in the Pyrenees. 

Commencal remains in Andorra some 20 years later with Max still at the helm of the office, which is within earshot of the World Cup track, although it’s not likely you’ll find any of the close to 60 employees in the office come race day. Racing is an integral part of day-to-day life at Commencal with them enjoying World Cup success with racing royalty like Anne-Caro, the Athertons, and of course the current crop of Commencal Vallnord racers who are a near-permanent fixture on the WC podium.

The company has gained some real momentum in recent years and they’ve expanded into America, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand in quick succession. The prices are lower which is another way in which Commencal has got such a strong foothold in the market at the moment. 

Look through the line-up and there is a distinct absence of carbon in the Commencal portfolio. They did offer the likes of the Skin, Super 4, and Meta in carbon for a few years, but after visiting the manufacturer in China, Max decided to put a stop to it all. “I was so disappointed to see the bad, bad conditions for the workers… young people with the carbon dust, with only a poor paper mask. The owner was saying ‘No, it is like this’… I wasn’t comfortable with that.” That was the end to carbon at Commencal, but it wasn’t just the humanitarian side that leaves the company as aluminium advocates. As Max explains, a carbon mold is expensive and leaves little room to tweak and change the design, something which Commencal are constantly playing with, especially with their race team.

Commencal: Meta AM
29 Origin 2021

The switch to a 29-inch wheeled META from 2019 onwards has enabled a significant improvement in performance.

The kinematics have been redesigned to enable a bike that is both more dynamic and more comfortable during suspension travel. Thanks to 170mm travel on the front and 160mm on the back, this META AM is an enduro platform designed above all, to go fast for extended periods of time. With faster-than-ever speed to deal with we decided to alter the geometry. Lengthened for stability, equipped with a 40mm stem, a short fork offset (42/44mm) and a slacker head angle.

Commencal Meta AM Origin 2021

Commencal: Meta AM
29 Ride 2021

The switch to a 29-inch wheeled META from 2019 onwards has enabled a significant improvement in performance. For 2021, we’re taking advantage of the experience and knowledge of our EWS riders and numerous tests, to make it even more effective against the clock!

The use of double-row Enduro Bearings allows a more homogeneous deformation of the frame without the loss of stiffness via the bearings. Aesthetically, the frame has evolved in depth. Notably, the sharper lines highlight improved performance. The new META AM 29 will therefore delight riders eager for performance and those who like to give it all regardless of the difficulty of the trail before them!

Commencal: FCB 2021

This bike has clearly been designed for urban adventures during the week and off-road trips at the weekend. It features narrow 640mm handlebars so you can sneak between the traffic and disc brakes to stop you in an instant when necessary. WTB Venture tubeless ready 50mm tyres offer incredible grip and comfort for use on the concrete streets, as well as looser gravel surfaces, thanks to their large volume. The SRAM Apex 11-speed transmission means you can adventure everywhere, from alleyways or tow paths to hilly country trails.

Price: £1,200

Commencal FCB 2021

Commencal: Ramones Silver

Our 20-inch wheeled bikes are suitable for children who measure between 115cm and 135cm. At this height/age, your child begins to build some strength and endurance.

The RAMONES 20 has a rigid frame and fork. Beyond the intention of keeping the price of the bike down, the absence of suspension allows for better performance, less weight and easier maintenance. In addition, the stiffness is compensated by 2.6 tyres which can be slightly under-inflated to provide even more comfort and grip. Finally, your child can take advantage of 7 gears without even having to let go of the handlebars thanks to a SHIMANO Revoshift twist shift system. It’s particularly handy for children who are new to shifting gears.
