For those who do not yet know the details of the SUPREME DH V4, we suggest you check them out on our website! The creation process of our new winning machine was interesting! For the lazy ones, here’s a short version…

First of all, let’s talk about the trajectory of the rear wheel. When the bike’s sat still there seems to be no logic in the HPP suspension system but it’s once it’s in action that makes it stand out from the crowd. The rear wheel moves backwards and allows better shock absorption. The high pivot point requires a specific chain passage to eliminate the adverse effects of kickback and to allow the suspension to run completely freely.
That's not all; with the positioning of the mini-idler, the anti-squat is ideal for recovery, a real plus for efficient pedaling.

The SUPREME DH V4 must not be defined by physics and the passage of the chain alone. Above all it’s a racing machine with, for example, a headset system that alters the top tube length +/- 1cm and also the chainstay length adjustment (425mm/430mm).
