Commencal Supreme DH 29-
Fastest and best-looking bike in the world ? We sure think so…

We are stoked to be running Hope brakes. You just can’t beat British engineering. As team Ride It Out isn’t a team with two mechanics per rider and a million spares, we need products that are high performing as well as reliable. This is the 2nd season with Hope and they are great. More power than Donald Trump, more reliable than a Toyota Hilux. We bled em once last year, and they took us to many a podium. Same again for 2019!
Ohlins DH & Enduro platforms are mind-blowing. Offering plenty of plushness for grip, while staying upright in harsh compressions. We are super impressed with the new DH38 Fork and the TTX Coil. Combine this with custom J tech Suspension tuning and we reckon this is one of the best set up’s money can buy.
Schwalbe tyres are providing the grip. We love their Addix compounds, Providing a plethora of options for any terrain. We are running Purple super soft on the DH bikes and Orange Soft on Trail bikes. Who else loves a Dirty Dan? For the wet there’s nothing like it, big knobs with small cuts means mud clearance while still gripping on the hardpack/rocky stuff.
The Commencal Supreme Dh 29 has 220mm of rock munch World Cup Winning travel. All the boys are stoked to give ‘er some in the first races coming up.
Burgtec has our backs with this sharp looking seat and killer light carbon seat-post.
Protecting your head is the most important thing you can do in our sport. Kali helmets are at the forefront of helmet technology. Team Ride It Out are ecstatic that we have Kali supporting the team. The boys are wearing the Shiva 2.0 Carbon for DH and Maya for open face enduro and shredding.
Who says big wheels cant scrub? Or tweak at least…
Commencal Meta 29-
The weapon of choice for our Enduro Racing. Stunning eh?
160mm rear travel, 165mmm J tech Suspension Custom tuned Ohlins Coil RFX 36 Forks. Dribbled with Hope components and Burgtec controls.
Drive terrain- we have Hope’s newest cranks. Crank Brother Mallet E pedals, we love the feel of these compared to other clipless pedals, you can hang loose and get that foot clipped back in no problem. Burgtec Thick-Thin chainring coupled with Unite Components guild means that chain ain’t going nowhere apart from across the finish line.
The rig pictured is Emyr’s personal ride. He’s been treated to a set of Crank Brothers Synthesis 11 wheelset. A Stiff rear wheel and a more flexible front make for better grip in the front and better speed out the back.
If Greg Minnaar runs ’em so will we! Burgtec have nailed it with this new grip. Lovely little squidgy bits with a harder core make for a lovely contact point. The team is loving these.
Kingud are keeping our bikes clean as well as keeping the environment alive. I mean think of how many times your bike wash goes into the water system and causes all kinds of damage. Why not save the planet and keep your bike looking sick at the same time?
