Our SUPREME DH platform continues to evolve. Its development centres around three main areas – more performance, more reliability and a global strategy to always move more up-market.
Since 2019, some of our guys and girls have been riding the SUPREME DH with 29/27 wheels. The results of this formula speak for themselves: Myriam Nicole has become World Champion twice (2019-2021) and won several World Cup rounds in 2021. Camille Balanche became World Champion in 2020. Amongst the men, Amaury Pierron and Thibaut Daprela have also won several World Cup rounds on-board this bike. Thibaut Daprela has also climbed onto the overall World Cup series podiums twice in his first two Elite seasons (2020 and 2021)!
It’s clear from the results of our pro teams and all our independent riders that the SUPREME DH has become a top leading DH race bike across the market. Its development this year again allowed many advances in terms of the frame:
– Having different sized wheels maintains the ability to clear things with the confidence offered by a 29-inch wheel on the front, but also to gain grip and manoeuvrability with a 27.5-inch wheel on the back.
– Increased overall stiffness for more precision and less energy loss.
– Position of the main pivot point and kinematics developed for more liveliness when pushing hard.
– A more linear kinematic which makes it possible to ride with less SAG without losing any comfort.
– Position of the jockey wheel is designed to maintain good chain tension, limit its effect on the suspension and increase efficiency when on the pedals.
SUPREME DH RACE
The SUPREME DH 29 RACE returns in 2022 complete with a classy and elegant matte Champagne finish. This new version sees the arrival of FOX and SHIMANO components, known for their reliability:
– The FOX 40 Performance Grip fork has an air spring for a wide range of adjustments and consistently healthy handling.
– The FOX DHX 2 Performance spring shock offers unmatched sensitivity and never overheats, however long the descent is.
– The SHIMANO XT 4-piston brakes are most effective and offer a true and aggressive touch.
Finally, E13 LG1 + DH wheels are a benchmark on the market today in terms of strength.
Quite simply, a bike designed for racing.
