"A downhill bike that knows how to climb."

Commencal has released an updated Meta, a downhill-oriented all-mountain/enduro bike designed around 160/170 mm forks and Boost spacing. The top tube length, seat tube angle and reach are the same as version 4, but the head angle is half a degree slacker (65.5 degrees) and the wheelbase a tad longer. A new, two-piece top tube is compatible with all rear shocks—the design promises more progressive suspension. There’s also now more clearance for large rear brake calipers.

The new Meta gets improved internal dropper post routing, a new downtube protector and more space inside the triangle for a water bottle (yep, there are mounts tucked in there). Finally, all Metas will come stock with nice-n-wide rims (25-30 mm inner width) to give you more tire contact on the trail.

Available in sizes small through XL, the bike is now available for pre-order. Six models are available (all with 170 mm front and 160 mm rear travel). Prices start at $2,200 for a SRAM NX1 1×11 build, SRAM Level brakes, RockShox Deluxe RT shock and a RockShox Yari RC up front (yellow bike pictured above). At the top of the line, you’ll get a shiny silver aluminum frame, RockShox Lyric fork, Reverb dropper post and SRAM XO1 Eagle 12-speed build for $4,600 ($100 less for a black frame).
