META HT AM ESSENTIAL 2021
New META HT AM: Lower profile to get higher!
The META HT AM continues on its own path.
Our research shows that this is the most versatile bike across our entire range.
Enduro, off-road, urban playgrounds or pump track, it's literally at home everywhere.
We believed in this niche several years ago and since then we've become real specialists.
To stay ahead of the curve, we're looking at the little details that make the difference.
On this new version, the seat tube is lowered.
1) It is now possible to install a longer travel seat post.
2) The choice of size is no longer restricted by a seat tube that's too high. Which is particularly useful for those who want a longer bike.
For the rest, we've renewed our formula:
- A stiffer frame that provides better pedalling efficiency, is lighter and allows for less maintenance.
- A fork with 150mm or 160mm travel. More than just your average hardtail, the META HT AM is proficient anywhere with the feel of a real enduro bike thanks to carefully selected front suspension.
- A geometry intentionally designed to be completely capable on the steepest, most technical trails.
The frame facilitates 27.5 and 29-inch wheels.
27.5 for small and medium sized riders. Or simply for those who prefer increased handling, comfort and grip.
29 for medium and large sized riders. Or for those who favour efficiency, precision and performance.
A first-choice bike for some, a second or third choice for others, the META HT AM is one of those bikes that quite simply makes you want to ride.
About the META HT AM ESSENTIAL
This 'Heritage Green' paint is just beautiful. Andreu LACONDEGUY loves it on his FURIOUS!
The META HT AM ESSENTIAL is our top-end 27.5-inch model. Of course, it's designed to be playful, comfortable and grippy. But with this model, we wanted to move the cursor a little more towards performance, especially when going down the hill. So, we added a ROCKSHOX Yari RC with 160mm travel, and a chassis derived from the particularly rigid Lyrik, for more precision on all terrain. It benefits from numerous adjustments and the adjustable Debonair air spring with tokens so you can tweak it 100% to your requirements. It's a real benchmark in the suspension market. Wide 27.5+ 2.8 tyres provide maximum comfort and grip on the most demanding trails and the SRAM Guide T 4-piston brakes have even more stopping power, whatever the gradient. The SRAM SX Eagle 12-speed transmission has a 11-50t cassette combo to make climbing a breeze. And to make everything just that bit more seamless, this META HT AM ESSENTIAL has a KS telescopic seat post.
A real plus. With the META HT AM ESSENTIAL you can really get stuck in from the start!
