COMMENCAL META HT

Jack puts on a clinic showcasing what the Meta HT can do. The bike is available in two wheel size options. For size Small and Medium, the bike is equipped with 27.5/29 wheels, where the Large and XL come with a full 29er set up. Thanks to this combination the bike's behaviour is different and adapted with each size. All to deliver maximum fun for every rider. Like with other COMMENCAL platforms, the frame is made from AL 6061Triple Butted Aluminium making the bike extremely robust, and responsive when climbing. Carefully designed tube shapes, welds and tube thickness' of this premium material are put together for pure and simple efficiency.

 After about 20 years of mtbing and whole bunch of bikes I decided to go back to school and bought me a nice hardtail. Boy, I don't know if I'm ever going to search for something more.. My fav riding is steep, tech and raw, ofc it's not the best tool for mindless dropping but it's so fun and so inspiring and actually so capable, I don't feel like 'underbiked'. Good brakes, wheels, decent fork and a there is a whole world of improvement ahead on a ht.

 @rickybobby19: Still super fun and forces you to find a good line and actually move on the bike

 @matheas: whilst I dont fully disagree with you I dont think it forces you to find a "good" line more like a smooth line.

 Lemoine's send on last year Crankworks remains in its own category. Pretty decent sends however

 Can't ride my full suss with half this much steeze. Sold my hardtail as it wasn't capable enough. I can't be the problem.

 I own a Meta AM HT and the bikes are solid. They can handle anything you throw at them. Pretty much the best "everthing" hardtail on the market. Super fun bike.

 I also have a Meta HT (bought a frame) and I am very satisfied with how it rides. The geometry is perfect and also the overall quality seems to be very good.
