TRAIL/SUSP

Here we have the Trail/XC category including all models equipped with front and rear suspension. What can we say? Is a ‘Trail’ a small (travel) ‘ALL MOUNTAIN’ bike? Well, sure it is… Our Trail (or TR) is best suited to less mountainous and more rolling terrain. It is less engaged and less committed in the downhill sections than its big brother the All-Mountain (AM). In a nutshell, what makes the difference between these two major categories of modern mountain bikes is the geometry of the frame and the suspension travel, front and rear. The narrower or more closed angles of the TR shifts the emphasis to climbing with the 120 to 140mm suspension travel on a TR instead of 160 or even 170mm on the AM. The rest of the components are almost identical (to the AM) and the prices are more or less the same so it just depends on which reliable and durable bike you think suits you the most… TR or AM? The debate is exciting and competition is strong...
META TR V3
 
The META V3 is what we call a classic! It’s known for its reliability, comfort and performance. It’s simply adored and although a few years old now, this platform is far from out-dated. The good news is that it’s back in the range for 2017, in the Trail version, because it excels on small to medium mountain trails. The geometry of the frame has been entirely redesigned to offer more travel; 130mm on the rear and to accept 140mm forks on the front. In turn, the progressiveness curve was calculated to provide more excitability. Particularly well equipped, the price ratio is up there. Playful and highly-strung, this TR is born!
META TR V4
 
EST. 2015, the META V4 platform (V4, for the fourth version) surprised the best of mountain biking combining in a big way, all that a rider expects for the ultimate mountain biking experience. This version of the V4 TR beat its competitors face-to-face in almost all specialist press reviews! Even though it bares the TR name, it doesn’t take away from its descending excellence and sense of adventure. The high-end aluminium frame is light and robust and the ability to access the suspension has been made easier which has been particularly appreciated. It features all of the kit that’s now become unavoidable (27.5'' wheels, single ring, 11-speed, telescopic seat post *optional with the ride model,* a short stem and wide handlebars) but it’s simply the best.
META TR V4.2
 
The META range is at the epicentre of COMMENCAL. The specific geometry makes this bike, without a doubt, the most versatile in our catalogue.

Elected "TRAIL BIKE OF THE YEAR 2017" by MBR Magazine, the META TR V4.2 has been widely proven since its release.

Our design team explored two different possibilities when creating this model. We liked the idea of a bike with shorter travel, one that would be more fun, lighter and more playful... Drifts, jumps, scrubs, whips; a bike that knows how to do everything!

We love this bike’s "intrepid explorer” personality. The TR is perfect for riding on those trails that go a little further and it brings a much more playful side to this side of the sport. The quality and variable thickness of the aluminium frame is the highlight of this bike. It has 130mm travel at the rear and 140mm at the front. The new kinematics (.2) makes it more efficient for pedalling and as for the progressivity with the Metric standard; you will have all the comfort necessary, even in the most challenging downhill sections.
