Commencal Launches the New 2021 Meta AM 29

The switch to a 29-inch wheeled META from 2019 onwards has enabled a significant improvement in performance. For 2021, we're taking advantage of the experience and knowledge of our EWS riders and numerous tests, to make it even more effective against the clock!

The kinematics have been redesigned to enable a bike that is both more dynamic and more comfortable during suspension travel. This results in less leg fatigue for the rider and essentially the ability to ride the bike optimally towards the end of long race stages.

Thanks to 170mm travel up front and 160mm out back, this META AM is an enduro platform designed above all to go fast for extended periods of time. 

With faster-than-ever speed to deal with we decided to alter the geometry. Lengthened for stability, 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.

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.

The new 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!

Geometry

  • The new META AM 29 is longer: 495mm reach (size large) vs 468mm on the old META AM 29.
  • The seat angle is steeper: 78.6° vs 76.5°.
  • Slacker head angle ("direction angle more lying down" ;-) ): 63.5° vs 65.5°.
  • Short fork offset.
  • Designed to work with a short stem (40mm).
