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 rides... It 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 manoeuvrable 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 strong option for smaller people.

6 - Top Tube Length
7 - Chainstay Length
8 - BB Height
9 - Fork Length
10 - Reach
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°
Direction angle more lying down: 64° vs 65°
Shorter fork offset
Designed to allow shorter stems (30/40mm)
More linear kinematic
More comfort / More precision
Better ground feel and more comfortable on steeper terrain
Adjustable two position kinematic setting: Sensitive/Dynamic
180mm on the front
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)
