Commencal Meta AM 29 Ohlins Suspension BikeBenefitting from the feedback from Commencal sponsored EWS (Enduro World Series) pro riders, the updated Meta AM brings you even better performance than before. Ready to race against the clock at enduro races, this version is equipped with Ohlins suspension to have you floating over the rough stuff. Then when it’s time to get up to speed, the slick shifting Shimano SLX 1×12 speed drivetrain combines with the fast-engaging DT Swiss 350 rear hub for near instant power transfer.29er Mountain Bike with Modern GeometryAesthetically, the frame has evolved in depth. Notably, the sharper lines highlight improved performance. The completely revised Meta AM 29 will therefore delight riders eager for performance and those who like to give it all regardless of the difficulty of the trail before them. Plus, with faster-than-ever speed to deal with, Commencal decided to alter the geometry. Lengthened for stability, it’s equipped with a 40mm stem, a short fork offset (42/44mm) and a slacker head angle. This means handling is not impeded and the bike feels like it has a good sense of direction. The seat angle is straightened, and the offset is reduced for optimised uphill positioning regardless of whether in the saddle or on the pedals.Efficient Full Suspension FrameThe kinematics of the frame has been redesigned to enable a bike that is both more dynamic and more comfortable during suspension travel. This results in less rider-leg fatigue and essentially the ability to ride the bike optimally towards the end of long race stages. Thanks to 170mm travel on the front and 160mm on the back, this Meta AM is an enduro platform that’s designed to go fast for extended periods of time. The stiffness of the frame is also always the subject of much attention. The use of double-row Enduro Bearings on the Commencal Meta AM 29 Ohlins Suspension Bike allows a more homogeneous deformation of the frame without the loss of stiffness via the bearings.Features: Frame: 2021 Meta AM, 160mm rear travel, 6066 alloy, triple butted T4 and T6 tubes; moulded down tube, chainstay and seatstay protectionFork: Öhlins RXF36 M.2, air spring, TTX 18 damper, Ramp Up Chamber, high/low-speed compression adjust, rebound adjust, 44mm offset Rear Shock: Öhlins TTX22M, coil spring, high/low-speed compression adjust, rebound adjust 230×62.5mm, Spring rates: 343lbs (SM), 388lbs (MD), 434lbs (LG), 480lbs (XL) Headset: ACROS, ZS44 upper, ZS56 lower, alloy cups, sealed bearings Stem: Ride Alpha Freeride 40, 31.8mm bar clamp, 40mm length Handlebar: Ride Alpha R27, 7050 alloy, 27mm rise, 780mm width, 31.8mm clamp diameter Grips: Ride Alpha DH, Ultra-soft compound, single clamp, black Shifters: Shimano Deore XT, 12-speed Brakes: Shimano Deore XT, 4-piston, I-SPEC EV clamps, Shimano MT900 203mm CentreLock Ice Technology Freeza rotors Crankset: Shimano Deore XT, 170mm length, 32T chainring with Dynamic Chain Engagement+ Technology Bottom Bracket: Shimano BBMT800, BB92 press-fit Chain: Shimano Deore XT, 12-speed Cassette: Shimano Deore XT, 12-speed, 10-51T Rear Derailleur: Shimano Deore XT, 12-speed ISCG Tabs: Yes, ISCG05 Chainguide: No Rims: DT Swiss EX511, 28 hole, 30mm inner width Front Hub: DT Swiss 350, 28 hole, straight-pull, sealed bearings, CentreLock rotor mount, 15x110mm Boost Rear Hub: DT Swiss 350, 28 hole, straight-pull, sealed bearings, CentreLock rotor mount, 12x148mm Boost rear with Micro Spline driver and 36 tooth Star Ratchet Spokes: DT Swiss Competition, J-bend, 2.0/1.8/2.0 double butted, stainless steel, with Nylok Front Tyre: Schwalbe Magic Mary, Super Trail, Addix Soft, 29×2.4″ Rear Tyre: Schwalbe Big Betty, Super Trail, Addix Soft, 29×2.4″ Saddle: Fabric Scoop Flat Elite, CrMo rails Seat Post: KS Lev Integra dropper 34.9mm, Southpaw alloy remote lever, Drop: 125mm (SM), 150mm (MD), 175mm (LG), 200mm (XL) Seat Post Clamp: Single bolt, 38.5mm Accessories: Down tube protector, Chainstay protector, Seatstay protector Warranty: 5 years main frame; 2 years chainstays, suspension “contact system” and Commencal/RIDE ALPHA components; 6 months paint/decals Weight: 16kg / 35lbs 4.4ozEasy AssemblyWhen you order a bike, one of our trained mechanics will carefully prepare and pack your bike for shipping.
