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 always steps up no matter what!

For 2021, the CLASH changes significantly.



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.



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!





  • The new CLASH is longer: 490mm reach (size large) vs 467mm on the old CLASH
  • The seat angle is straighter: 77,2° vs 75.5°
  • Slacker head angle: 64° vs 65°
  • Shorter fork offset
  • Designed to allow shorter stems (30/40mm)

More linear kinematics

  • More comfort / More precision
  • Better ground feel and more comfortable on steeper terrain
  • Adjustable two position kinematic setting: Sensitive/Dynamic


  • 170mm rear
  • 180mm on the front

Finishing touches

  • The rocker construction has been completely revised to provide an excellent finish
  • Easier assembly/disassembly of the contact system.
  • Lower seat tube
  • Improved to allow a longer travel telescopic seat post (34.9mm diameter)
  • Longer maximum insertion length.
  • Completely renewed look!

Why did commencal ditch the "split pivot" the had with the older generation clash and revert to the same system as the meta?

New fork with 38mm stanchions like the Fox 38 (pretty much the direct competitor). Some photos have been "leaked", but might have been taken down since ... Bit of a boxy looking arch, rest is just black and looks like a lyrik, just fatter. No idea when they plan on releasing the fork
