Commencal Introduces the 2022 Clash Kids

'I'm faster than Dad!'

To own a CLASH is to feel like part of a team. Whether it’s the adult version or the Kids model, the CLASH is playful and lively, and made with care by us. With 3 years of good and loyal service, it was important timing to overhaul the CLASH Kids. Everything is new and beautiful - new kinematics perfectly suited to kids, top-of-the-range parts and all with exceptional handling.

Today, the CLASH Kids is now a benchmark for all young DH riders who want to start riding bike park or competing. "I’m Faster than Dad" becomes the rallying cry!

The range is made up of four platforms with different wheel sizes: CLASH 20, CLASH 24, CLASH JR (26 inches) and CLASH XS (27/26).Now based on an all-new chassis, the CLASH Kids uses a virtual pivot point (VPP) kinematic designed to provide liveliness, sensitivity and comfort to the lightest riders. The CLASH 20/24/JR and XS also have a specific series of tubes adapted to the weight of the riders.

The idea is to improve various points:

  • Largely lighter frames with reduced tube profiles.
  • Rigidity and flexibility of the frame balanced better for children's weights.
  • Reduced bearing sizes for more sensitivity.
  • A completely reworked look.

Our data acquisition over the past few years with our many young riders has allowed us to refine our choices regarding kinematics year after year.

This aims to offer more sensitivity at the start of the travel for small riders and the perfect balance between liveliness and comfort through the full suspension stroke.
