Commencal has updated the Commencal Furious for 2020 with some under-the-skin changes and new builds.
The Furious is Commencal’s more affordable and more simple big travel downhill machine. It’s not an all-out race bike like the Supreme, though it is more than happy racing between the tape, but more of a freeride, park and general big huck machine.
Visually the new Furious looks like the outgoing bike, but under-the-skin there have been a number of changes that should improve it. This evolution model promises to be more dynamic and playful while retaining the simplicity that makes the Furious so popular.

The new frame uses 6069 alloy rather than 6061 for longer life expectancy, just the ticket for a bike that will spend most of its life hitting huge gaps and landing to flat on more than one occasion. On top of the material change, the suspension has been tweaked and geometry optimised too.
Kinematics have now been updated so the new Furious can run either an air shock or coil without compromising the suspension. The new bike also boasts a flip-chip that affects the suspension rather than changes the geo. There are 2 settings one for grip and the other for more progression. The new kinematics also allow the new Furious to be ridden with more sag too.
Other updates include a beefed-up construction that will reduce frame flex on aggressive bike park tracks, new smooth welds for improved aesthetics and updated frame protection to keep the new Furious looking good for longer while reducing chain slap and noise.
Commencal is offering the new Furious in a range of builds with choices of either Fox or RockShox suspension with prices starting at just €2999 and rising to €4799 for the flagship Furious Race. For more details head over to the Commencal website.
