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 ÖHLINS EDITION
The META AM 29 ÖHLINS EDITION is the biggest new edition to our enduro range! For this very special build we chose ‘Heritage Green/Dark Green’ paint which goes perfectly with the ÖHLINS suspension colours.
This bike is intended for those more physical and committed riders. It’s a real competition bike. We have the best enduro suspension from the Swedish brand. On the back, a TTX22 shock will delight spring suspension fans thanks to the sensitivity to small impacts and its excellent contact-to-ground feel. On the front, the RXF36 fork is also the best for competition, especially thanks to the high precision and excellent grip on steeper slopes. And what better way to stop this machine than with SHIMANO XT 4 piston brakes and their RT-MT900 discs, which offer excellent heat management! To finish in style, we have DT SWISS custom wheels designed specifically for our bikes. They have one of the best enduro rims on the market today the EX 511, as well as 350 hubs which are reliable and solid.
Stand out with this brand new frame and exceptional complete build!
