Video: 2021 Commencal Meta AM 29 Team First Look

by 5

Check out our video first look of the 2021 Commencal Meta AM 29 Team! A bike so rare that even pre-orders are running low on stock!

For 2021 Commencal gave its full-suspension line-up a major overhaul. The Meta TR, Clash and Meta AM all received hugely revised geometry, but it’s the Meta AM which saw the largest increase and this is the bike we currently have on test.

The last time the Meta AM 29 saw an update was back in 2018, and though the 2021 bike retains those Commencal signature design choices, the frame is completely redesigned. Find out just how long, low, narrow, steep and slack this 170mm travel enduro bike is in our first look video below.

    Nice review, Andi. I really like the sound of the latest Commencals. I hope they give their hardtails the same treatment.

    They look great but do they come with a crane to help get them over gates and onto the bike rack

    That is a big bike with 29ers / that much travel / those reach figures / head angle / Zeb etc. Way too much for me or my riding – that needs some serious terrain!

    It is an interesting bike from a spec sheet perspective. Looking forward to hearing how it rides.

    On the subject of double row bearing longevity, I have not found any appreciable difference on my Trek Slash. They wore at just as quick as any other bearings on a FS bike ridden in the Lakes glorious wetness. I did however notice how much more expensive a full set were compared to other bikes – £120 for the Slash compared to £48 for my previous Bird Aeris (both use Enduro bearings).
