Introducing the Commencal Supreme SX

In a world where performance and competition often take over, at COMMENCAL we still believe in fun! We love climbing on our bikes but what we really want is to send it big on the way down. We’re not talking about race lines here, we’re talking about big lines, the ones that require "balls" as we like to say!

For those who want to ride harder and also for those who think that having fun is more important than a fast time, the SUPREME SX is for you, it is for us!️ - Yoann Barelli

Our first prototypes with a high pivot point (HPP) were developed on an enduro platform with 160mm of travel. There are numerous advantages to such a system - optimised wheel path, reduced kickback and anti-squat for better pedalling. Let’s start with wheel path. When the bike is not moving it’s difficult to differentiate how the HPP will affect the suspension but in action, it’s a different story. The rear wheel moves backwards and what better tool to absorb hits?

This rearward axle path extends the chainstay length, bringing more stability and grip. It’s simple and effective. To counter the influence of the chain, there is an idler positioned near the main pivot, which eliminates harmful kickback. The suspension is then not affected by the chain at all.

  • Based on the SUPREME DH V4.2 Contact System: Optimum anti-squat mixed with very low kickback.
  • Designed around a metric shock (230*65).
  • Rocker/Shock connected with bearings providing ultimate shock sensitivity.
  • 180mm rear travel, designed to fit 170/180mm travel forks.
  • Steep seat tube angle for a good pedalling position.
  • Boost standard to match market requirements.
  • Minimum kickback and controlled anti-squat.
  • Postmount 180mm hanger compatible with META V4 series.
  • Down tube protector and optimised cable routing.
  • Chainstay protector and optimised chain routing for minimum noise.
