Commencal Meta HT AM Ride Maxxis Hardtail BikeThe ideal hardtail for the fastest, most aggressive enduro trails, Commencal’s fully updated Meta HT AM Ride offers stability, pace and control needed for riding the most challenging terrains. Engineered and equipped to be a true “all-rounder”, it features plus-sized 2.8” tyres, 160mm travel RockShox 35 Gold RL forks and SRAM SX Eagle 1×12-speed groupset. This multi-purpose hardtail mountain bike performs well on everything from urban rides, pump tracks and the hardest trails at the trail park. Modern Hardtail Mountain Bike with Updated GeometryA first-choice bike for many, the Meta HT AM is one of those bikes that quite simply makes you want to ride. To stay ahead of the curve, Commencal looked at the little details that make the difference. On this updated version, the seat tube is lowered, which means it is now possible to install a longer travel seat post. Also, 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. RockShox 35 Gold RL Suspension and SRAM SX Eagle 12-Speed GroupsetThe Meta HT AM Ride has a RockShox 35 Gold RL fork. This fork has many excellent qualities. First of all, it has 160mm travel to provide comfort and grip in all circumstances. The upper tubes measure 35mm and are made from aluminium to reduce the weight and increase dynamism. Numerous adjustment possibilities and the Debonair facility mean that you can quickly and easily change the behaviour of your bike depending on your body shape, riding ability or weather conditions. With SRAM’s SX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain and a 11-50t cassette, this bike can go everywhere with agility and control. It’s also equipped with SRAM Level brakes with 200mm front and 180mm rear disc rotors that significantly increase stopping power in all weather conditions.Compatible with 27.5″ and 29er WheelsA semi-rigid frame allows more pedalling efficiency; a lighter weight and it reduces essential maintenance. The frame on the Meta HT AM Ride facilitates 27.5 and 29-inch wheels. The 27.5” (650b) wheels are recommended for small and medium sized riders or those who prefer increased handling, comfort and grip, 29” wheels are recommended for medium and large sized riders or for those who favour efficiency, precision and performance. Versatile and Trail Optimised Off-Road BikeCommencal’s research shows that this is the most versatile bike across their entire range. Ideal for enduro, off-road trails, urban playgrounds or pump tracks, it’s literally at home everywhere. They believed in this niche several years ago and since then they’ve become real specialists. To stay ahead of the curve, they looked at the little details that make the difference when out on the trails. On this version, the seat tube is lowered to give two advantages: It is now possible to install a longer travel seat post The choice of size is no longer restricted by a seat tube that’s too high It is particularly useful for those who want a longer bikeFor the rest, Commencal renewed their formula: A stiffer frame that provides better pedalling efficiency, is lighter and allows for less maintenance A fork with 150mm or 160mm travel.
