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.

The FOX 36 Performance Grip fork is ultra-efficient. Plus, the FOX Float DPS LV shock puts emphasis on liveliness and performance. The 12-speed transmission and brakes are provided by SHIMANO with the SLX model which is known for its reliability, power and low maintenance qualities. In the spirit of reliability, the DT SWISS M502 rims are also an ideal match here.All these components make this META TR 29 a formidable trail, all-mountain and enduro weapon.
