Commencal has been working on 29/27 Mullet bikes for 3 years now with their different DH teams. This work has allowed Commencal to understand that to transform a regular bike with the same sized wheels into a bike with different sized wheels, it isn't effective to just throw a 27-inch wheel on the back. The geometry and kinematics of the bike must be completely reworked and it is thanks to this experience that we are now able to present the most successful version of the META V4 we've ever produced, the META SX!

Equipping this META SX with different sized 29/27-inch wheels is not the result of a trend that Commencal is following. Quite simply, this way the bike is much more balanced, specifically relating to grip on the front and back - the large 29-inch wheel on the front allows more confidence and rolling capacity whilst the 27.5-inch rear wheel offers more manoeuvrability and responsiveness.

The result is a bike that is more agile and easier in the steeps, more efficient under braking and more dynamic when pushing hard.

Once again, the choice to work with Aluminium has allowed Commencal to accompany this change in wheel size with an adjustment of the geometry. A shorter 10mm reach, a straightened steerer angle and extended (10mm) chain stays mean that the rider is naturally repositioned in the centre of the bike and will therefore have the ability to be more precise and agile in their technique.

Undoubtedly, one of the points that has changed the most is the way the suspension works. Apart from the kinematics which have been reworked to provide more liveliness, Commencal made a point of managing the stiffness of the rear triangle. Through new double row Enduro Bearings, eliminating any deformation, the new META SX offers perfect deformation/rigidity management to provide grip, comfort and performance.

In addition to all this in-depth work, as on the META POWER TR and META TR models, Commencal now offers a Flip Chip on the shock extension in order to be able to better adjust the geometry, and therefore fit with your style! This system also means you can adapt the height of the bottom bracket as well as the steerer and saddle angles within seconds. Depending on your preferences, you can have the choice between a dynamic bike that's perfect for big pedalling trips, or a more progressive version which is ideal for days in the bike park or on more committed trails.

Finally, Commencal have worked on a detail that makes the difference; the finished look. The welds have been the subject of meticulous work to reduce them as much as possible without affecting the solidity of the frame. The cable routing is neat for easier maintenance, the cables being easily accessible in the down tube, while grommets are placed at the ends to give perfect support and prevent penetration of water and mud.

Installing a bottle cage has also been made easy.

About the META SX Origin: 

he META SX V4 is made to engage and go fast. It features a generous wheelbase, reworked frame and kinematics for its 29/27.5-inch wheels, and perfectly combines stability with liveliness. This is the mountain bike we all need for riding the steepest, most technical terrain and holding lines like no other. Enduro trails or motorway sections in the bike park; it can do it all!

The META SX ORIGIN is modern and classy when offered in this matte Heritage Green finish, don't you think? With the components on this model, we've prioritised reliability. SRAM can help with that:

  • The SRAM SX 12-speed drivetrain features a wide 11-50t cassette and is as reliable as it is efficient.
  • The SRAM Guide T 4-piston brakes are equipped with 200mm discs to be able to brake hard and over extended periods of time.

For suspension we have put ROCKSHOX in charge:

  • A Domain R fork on the front which is rigid and precise thanks to the 38mm stanchions.
  • On the back, a Deluxe Select shock which is very easy to adjust.

Comfort and grip are guaranteed with this combo both uphill and downhill. All the details.
