COMMENCAL META HT AM RACE 29 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 29 RACE
The 'Matte Graphite' paint job immediately excited us and that sets the tone for this 29er model!
As the name suggests this is a performance focused model. With 29-inch SPANK wheels and 2.4 MAXXIS tyres, it oozes precision and efficiency, whatever the terrain. Equipped with a FOX 36 Performance 150mm fork, this precision is guaranteed, in particular thanks to the 36mm upper tubes. It also features the 3-position grip cartridge and pneumatic Float Evol spring that means adjusting the stiffness is a breeze. The SHIMANO Deore brakes are particularly powerful and durable, in fact, they're famous for their bite. The KS seat post is added to link up pedalling and DH sections seamlessly. As for the 12-speed SHIMANO Deore transmission, we have a 10-51t cassette and makes this model a formidable pedaler.
That full-suspension bike had better watch out!
