In just two and a half years, Jérôme Clementz has won six rounds of the Enduro World Series, he’s also a two-time winner of the Megavalanche – in short, it’s fair to say Clementz is enduro’s first legend.

Interestingly, Clementz rides with the rebound fully open on his shock because he likes the bike to feel responsive and not get bogged down by small bumps.
Instead of the traditional Lefty fork, Clementz runs a Pike on his Jekyll. He will set this up with one or two bottomless, tokens depending on the race.
The Jekyll is an adjustable geometry bike. Celementz has a control on his bar that allows him to change the head angle and bottom bracket height on the fly. While this may seem gimmicky at first, Clementz actually believes he could change his geometry up to 20 times on a single timed run.
The bike is finished with SRAM wheels, a SRAM drivetrain, a WTB saddle, Michelin tyres and some mystery, prototype pedals that Clementz is helping to develop throughout the season
Clementz finished 15th at the EWS in Scotland and now sits fourth in the overall standings with five rounds still to go in the calendar. He will hope to do especially well at his home race in Samoens this weekend.
