Commencal tweaks the Meta HT hardtail for 2021

by 8

Commencal’s tweaked Meta HT hardtail released with 2021 build and a couple of frame updates.

Think Commencal and you will probably picture downhill race runs, enduro wins, and aggressive full-suspension bikes, but full-bounce isn’t all they do. The Commencal Meta HT has been a regular in the range for a couple of years already and remains popular among a variety of different riders today.

Compared to the full-suspension bikes, the geometry of the Meta HT is aimed at playing around and having fun, rather than podiums and all-out race speed, and the 2021 version of the bike drops standover to take the play to a new level.

The 2021 Meta HT follows its roots with a shortish reach, the ability to run 27.5 or 29in wheels and options for either 150mm or 160mm forks. The tweaked frame does now have a shorter seat tube length so that riders who do want more reach can opt for a larger bike and also take advantage of modern, long-travel, dropper posts.
