New META HT AM: Lower profile to get higher!
The META HT AM continues on its own path.
Our research shows that this is the most versatile bike across our entire range.
Enduro, off-road, urban playgrounds or pump track, it’s literally at home everywhere.
We believed in this niche several years ago and since then we’ve become real specialists.
To stay ahead of the curve, we’re looking at the little details that make the difference.
On this new version, the seat tube is lowered.
1) It is now possible to install a longer travel seat post.
2) The choice of size is no longer restricted by a seat tube that’s too high. Which is particularly useful for those who want a longer bike.
For the rest, we’ve tweaked our formula.
A semi-rigid frame allows more pedalling efficiency, a lighter weight and it reduces essential maintenance.
A 150mm or 160mm fork provides comfort and/or safety depending on what you’re riding.
The frame facilitates 27.5 and 29-inch wheels.
27.5 for small and medium sized riders. Or simply for those who prefer increased handling, comfort and grip.
29 for medium and large sized riders. Or for those who favour efficiency, precision and performance.
A first-choice bike for some, a second or third choice for others, the META HT AM is one of those bikes that quite simply makes you want to ride.
About the META HT AM ESSENTIAL
This ‘Gun Metal’ paint is just beautiful. And it’s one of our favourites at HQ!
The META HT AM ESSENTIAL is our top-end 27.5” model. Of course, it’s designed to be playful, comfortable and grippy. But with this model, we wanted to move the cursor a little more towards performance, especially when going down the hill. So, we added a ROCKSHOX Yari RC with 160 mm travel, and a chassis derived from the particularly rigid Lyrik, for more precision on all terrain. It benefits from numerous adjustments and the adjustable Debonair air spring with tokens so you can tweak it 100% to your requirements. It’s a real benchmark in the suspension market. Wide 27.5+ 2.8 tyres provide maximum comfort and grip on the most demanding trails and the SRAM Guide T 4-piston brakes have even more stopping power, whatever the gradient. The SRAM SX Eagle 12-speed transmission has a 11-51t cassette combo to make climbing a breeze. And to make everything just that bit more seamless, this META HT AM ESSENTIAL has a KS telescopic seat post. A real plus.
With the META HT AM ESSENTIAL you can really get stuck in from the start!
