    HIGHLIGHTS

    For the same price it’s better to have a good hardtail than a bad full-suspension bike. There, we said it! 

    This META HT AM ESSENTIAL is a true enduro bike with 650b wheels. It must be understood that this is a bike with which we prioritized the ability to descend and the ability to withstand large shocks even in its semi-rigid form. 

    The COMMENCAL DNA is still present. Think of this as a modern, engaging and playful bike, a different hardtail conception.

    Click on the Specs tab above for all of the specific info you may need! 

    The MARZOCCHI is a spring fork with 160mm of travel so it is sensitive to small shocks and the rebound settings can be adjusted on-the-go depending on rider preference etc. Already equipped with tubeless ready wheels (interesting to ride with, with lower pressure for better grip), a telescopic seatpost and a RIDE ALPHA cockpit, it sets the highest standards. 

    This META HT AM ESSENTIAL has virtually no competition.
