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 SIGNATUREThe META TR 29 SIGNATURE has been designed and built so that the high-end components stand out. Its paint job comes in the form of classy 'Matte Graphite' and the build option gives pride of place to the suspension, wheels and transmission. All this makes this bike a real collector's item!The META TR 29 SIGNATURE has been designed to highlight the high-end components that adorn it. The paint job is classy and refined and gives pride of place to the suspension, wheels and transmission that make this bike a real collector's item!Beyond its good looks, this top-notch build is made to make the most of its characteristics. Suspension-wise, the FOX 36 Factory fork with Kashima treatment is a must for strength, unequalled liveliness and ease of adjustment. The FOX Float X2 Factory shock is also the best, especially in terms of quality and performance, thanks to its numerous functions and oversized air spring. The high-end suspension combo on this META TR 29 makes it a dream up and down, and this is also thanks to the 160 mm travel! SHIMANO XT takes care of transmission and braking. They lead the way for reliability and consistency. For the wheels, which are another essential component of a high-end bike, DT SWISS XM1700 Spline make an appearance and their excellent weight/dynamism/reliability ratio immediately shouted out to us.
