Commencal are to introduce a carbon model into their 2009 line up. Dubbed the 'Skin', this new full carbon race frame borrows greatly from the inconspicuously rapid ‘Flame’ XC bike yet remains typically ‘Commençal’ and aggressive at heart. Expect a standalone VIP frameset and bikes at varying build levels.

According to Albert Stewart of Madison, " Commençal were eager to get the design, quality and ride characteristics right first time round and not to enter the market with a carbon frame that had not seen enough development time and fell short of standards and expectations. Hence over many, many months prototypes came and went, tweaks were made and only the best Taiwanese factory specialising in carbon frame production was awarded the production and manufacture of the ‘Skin’. The result? A frame that should ride every bit as well as it looks."

See the next edition of BikeBiz for an in depth look at the new model.
