Commencal Launches the 2021 Clash

New CLASH: The big (r)evolution!

With its 27.5-inch wheels, long travel and completely revised geometry and kinematics, the CLASH cements its place as a do-everything bike. Bike park, enduro, chilled or more technical rides...it always steps up no matter what!

For 2021, the CLASH changes significantly.

GEOMETRY

The geometry has been reviewed in depth. Uphill riding position is enhanced thanks to an elongated top tube and a straighter seat tube angle. Downhill, the longer reach will bring stability when things speed up, whilst the short stem will ensure a maneuverable and playful bike through slower sections.

Even if it's definitely intended for riders of all shapes and sizes (from S to XL), with 27-inch wheels the CLASH is a particularly good option for smaller people.

TECH

Thanks to its new kinematics, the CLASH feels even more at home on the steepest freeride slopes. The icing on the cake, like its big brother the FURIOUS, the CLASH features a kinematic adjustment. This setting gives priority to either sensitivity (Sensitive) or dynamism (Dynamic). No need to make any concessions.

The Sensitive mode is intended for DH/Freeride days when you need that comfort and grip. Dynamic mode is ideal for smoother tracks or jump sessions with friends for example, when you're looking for energy and flow.

Though the CLASH doesn't change aesthetically, we've delivered a whole new frame: its behaviour and level of performance takes a huge step forward. Not surprising for a CLASH after all!
