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.
In September 2020, Pinkbike journalist Mike Kazimer described the META TR 29 as, ''One of the most fun bikes that I've ridden this year".
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 SRAM
With this timeless Sand colour-way the META TR 29 RIDE is understated and classy.
Here you have everything you need to go on an adventure whether that's just for a few hours or several days. The SRAM SX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain will really help you climb the toughest ups. Downhill, the SRAM Guide T brakes and their 200mm G2 rotors will bring confidence thanks to their true touch and reliability. The Revelation RC fork with 35mm stanchions provides the right mix of stiffness and precision, they are efficient and easily adjustable too. The Deluxe Select+ shock means you can easily and quickly set the bike up to be exactly in line with your body shape, skill level and the riding you do. The big advantage of this RIDE model compared to the ORIGIN is that it features a KS telescopic seat post. A real plus! Finally, the new MAXXIS Dissector tyres are perfectly matched with this META TR 29 as they bring an excellent compromise between lateral grip and roll.
