New META AM 29: Much more than just a facelift!

The switch to a 29-inch wheeled META from 2019 onwards has enabled a significant improvement in performance.
For 2021, we're taking advantage of the experience and knowledge of our EWS riders and numerous tests, to make it even more effective against the clock!

The kinematics have been redesigned to enable a bike that is both more dynamic and more comfortable during suspension travel.
This results in less rider-leg fatigue and essentially the ability to ride the bike optimally towards the end of long race stages.
Thanks to 170mm travel on the front and 160mm on the back, this META AM is an enduro platform designed above all, to go fast for extended periods of time.

With faster-than-ever speed to deal with we decided to alter the geometry.
Lengthened for stability, equipped with a 40mm stem, a short fork offset (42/44mm) and a slacker head angle.
This means handling is not impeded and the bike feels like it has a good sense of direction.
The seat angle is straightened and the offset is reduced for optimised uphill positioning regardless of whether in the saddle or on the pedals.

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. It's very simple, everything is new!
Notably, the sharper lines highlight improved performance.

The new META AM 29 will therefore delight riders eager for performance and those who like to give it all regardless of the difficulty of the trail before them!

About the META AM 29 ORIGIN

In terms of components we focused on reliability and easy use. The new SHIMANO Deore 11-speed transmission with a big 11-51t block is as reliable as it is efficient. The MT501 brakes, also from SHIMANO, are fitted with 203mm discs so you can brake harder for longer. The famous manufacturer ROCKSHOX is in control of the suspension. On the front, a Yari RC fork, rigid and precise thanks to its 35mm uppers. On the back, a Deluxe Select shock that offers easy adjustment. With front and rear suspension like this, comfort and grip are guaranteed, both uphill and downhill. All the details have been considered with care.
