Meta TR 29 Origin Sand
The best of both worlds!
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.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 ORIGINIn terms of components, this META TR 29 puts reliability and simplicity first. The new SHIMANO Deore 11-speed transmission which has a large 11-51t range and is as reliable as it is efficient. The MT501 brakes are also from SHIMANO and have 203mm discs to facilitate hard braking over extended periods of time. In terms of suspension, legendary brand ROCKSHOX is in control. A strong and precise 35 Silver fork, as well as a Deluxe Select shock which offers easy adjustment, ensure comfort and grip both up and down. All the details have been updated.
