New META TR 29: The best of both worlds!
Whilst collecting a number of awards in the press ('Best Trail Bike under $3,000' from Pinkbike and 'Trail Bike of the Year' from MBUK), the META TR 29 is now taking things a step further.
How do you make a high-performance-uphill bike whilst keeping the COMMENCAL DNA when it's time to go down the hill?
This is the challenge that we set our engineers. And the results are amazing!
Thanks to 29-inch wheels, kinematics that make the bike even more dynamic and a straighter seat tube angle with reduced offset, the META TR 29 is formidable through any pedalling sections.
As soon as you get to the top and you've hurried to take that inevitable selfie, you'll be ready to take on the most daunting trails.
The 140mm rear travel and 150mm or 160mm fork up front will give you that extra confidence which will make all the difference when things get tough.
The stiffness of the frame is always the subject of much attention.
The use of double-row Enduro Bearings allows a more homogeneous deformation of the frame without the loss of stiffness via the bearings.
Aesthetically, the frame has evolved in depth. It's very simple, everything is new!
Notably, the sharper lines highlight improved performance.
Equipped with super tyres and brakes, the new META TR 29 is certainly not just a more comfortable XC bike but rather clearly, a 'mini-enduro' which pushes the standards of agility and dynamism even further.
About the META TR 29 RIDE
Finished off with our timeless 'Sand' paint job, the META TR 29 RIDE is modern and classy.
With this model there's everything you need to go on an adventure for a few hours or for several days. The SRAM SX Eagle 12-speed transmission will help you overcome the most daunting of obstacles. On the way down you might find the reliability of the Shimano Deore brakes even promote confidence. Insurance is also provided via RockShox suspension. The Revelation RC fork with its 35mm stanchions, provide stiffness and precision and they're easy to adjust. The Deluxe Select+ shock means you can easily and quickly change the behaviour of your bike depending on your body shape, your level and what the day of riding may have in store. A big advantage of this META TR 29 RIDE compared to the ORIGIN model, is that it's equipped with a KS telescopic seat post. A real plus! Finally, the new Maxxis Dissector tyres correspond perfectly to the META TR 29 with an excellent ratio between lateral grip and contact with the ground.
