PRESS RELEASE: Commencal Bicycles
It seemed inconceivable for us to have one without the other. The META POWER range is composed of two new platforms: The 29 and the SX (in 27.5).
The META POWER 29 is pure performance. A beast on technical climbs with a disconcerting downhill ability. It’s an ally to the person who climbs for their descents. It will help the rider through difficult rough sections which makes it easier to find flow in places there shouldn’t be any!
The META POWER SX is the fiery POWER of the range. The SX name refers to the legendary COMMENCAL platform which has always been known for its downhill capabilities. A bike made to make maximum laps on-board, smash berms, jump high and shred the steep parts of any track!
For MY20, the META POWER goes internal on the battery front, but this is not the only evolution. Far from it in fact. Thanks to the introduction of an internal Shimano battery with compact dimensions, we were able to work on a highly redesigned platform that conserves what makes the META POWER’s DNA. This POWER is above all a META! The BM-E8035 (the model code for this new Shimano battery) allows us to maintain a satisfactory weight distribution, a key point in relation to keeping a bike dynamic and easy to manoeuvre in any circumstances.
Because of the battery’s low position in the down tube, we use a long shock with a large stroke to vary the progressiveness of our suspension system. In concrete terms, the META POWER has a controlled progressivity.
This results in two main major characteristics: The bike is dynamic, it’s easy to move and provides a very good feeling of tyre-to-ground contact. The bike is comfortable throughout the travel. There is no stiff point, the movement happens naturally without consuming too much travel.
Easy battery assembly/disassembly (quarter turn screw)
CHANGING THE BATTERY IS ALWAYS EASY.
Charging port on the side of the seat tube, no need to disassemble the battery to charge it.
POWER BUTTON EASILY ACCESSIBLE ON THE DOWN TUBE SIDE
Cable routing revised for easy installation.
INTEGRATED SENSOR IN HANGER, MAGNET ASSEMBLED ON THE DISK FOR MORE RELIABILITY.
IMPROVEMENTS ON THE FINISH
Dual density injected plastic battery protection; soft part in contact with the frame to fit perfectly, hard plastic for effective protection.
Motor protector: Solid fixation, a protective ‘slider’ under the engine for where there is less clearance on the track.
Additional plastic housing for a better engine fit/mount
• Improved cable routing
• Loads of small parts to guide, protect, etc.
• More linear ; better feeling of contact between tyre and ground
• More comfortable during travel
• More dynamic
STIFFER TO BETTER ASSOCIATE WITH THE WEIGHT OF EBIKES
Oversized bearings for increased durability. We use Enduro Bearings throughout the range.
META POWER 29
The length of the chain stays is contained and the relatively linear suspension gives a playful character to the META POWER 29. It is easy to influence the distribution of weight on the front and back. The direction of passage at the back of the bike is simplified, we remain masters of the bike, we ride it! With the POWER 29, we talk about efficiency. Everything becomes easier, climbs and descents. An impressive potential and a heightened experience!
META POWER SX
With its 27.5'' wheels and generous travel, the META POWER SX is able to go fast, very fast. The geometry was designed accordingly with a long front and an open head angle. It’s all coupled with a 40mm stem to maintain an optimal downhill riding position, the SX’s favourite terrain!
