With the current men’s overall World Cup downhill champion Amaury Pierron and junior champion Thibaut Daprela on the roster, COMMENCAL/Vallnord is poised to repeat as the winningest team on the circuit, and ENVE will be right there with them. This season, Commencal/Vallnord will be racing the World Cup circuit on COMMENCAL SUPREME DH V4.3 bikes outfitted with M930 rims and M9 cockpits.
“As a product driven company, professional team sponsorship is primarily about product development. Much of ENVE’s success in the broader mountain bike market can be attributed to the product development that has transpired over nearly a decade of World Cup downhill partnerships. Having the winningest team in downhill, riding the sport’s best product is compelling, but it’s the products that will result from this partnership that really get me excited because these products will result in a better ride experience for ENVE and COMMENCAL’s customers around the world,” said ENVE’s VP of Product and Consumer Experience, Jake Pantone.
Coming off the team’s most successful season in its 10-year history, the pressure is on for the same success in 2019, and the ENVE partnership is the first step in making that a reality.
“To give our riders the most competitive bike out there, we’ve listened to what their expectations are for this year. Their wish to switch to carbon wheels was clear. The opportunity then came to partner with the best carbon fiber components brand in the world. We are delighted to announce our partnership with ENVE! The M930 wheels, M9 cockpits, and seatposts have already taken over our SUPREME DH bikes,” said COMMENCAL/Vallnord team manager Thibaut Ruffin.
