The COMMENCAL Meta TR Essential 29" mountain bike offers fun and dynamic performance on trails with a Shimano SLX 12-speed drivetrain and brakes as well as Fox suspension elements. With the help of the Flip Chip on the shock mount, you can adjust the geometry to the road ahead, your preferences and your riding style in no time at all. and the dropper seatpost makes it easier to switch between uphill and downhill. The playful linkage design makes the Meta TR dynamic, while double-row bearings on the frame prevent the loss of rigidity at the joints. All of this results in a bike that can deliver high performance on any terrain, and won't let you down on difficult passages.

Das "kleine" Enduro

Ich bin das META TR Essential in Gr. M bei 1,81m gefahren.
In 3 Monaten 700km und 27.000HM inkl. Bikepark und zwei Enduro-Rennen (Rabenberg und Klinovec).

Das Bike hat einen guten Job gemacht und dabei vor allem Spaß ohne Ende beschert. Sogar die 150mm Fox 36 Grip, der Fox DPS Dämpfer und der SLX Zweikolben-Bremse haben mich nicht ausgebremst.
Im Gegenteil, ich war verblüfft, wie gut sich das Fahrwerk anfühlte, vor allem das Heck. Der Fox DPS Performance fühlte sich so plush an, keine Ahnung wie das geht.

Wie alle Test bestätigen, ist das Meta TR ein 140mm Baller-Enduro und kein klassisches, leichtes Trailbike.
Vor allem auf der DH Line in Klinovec konnte ich kaum fassen, wie viel Spaß ich auf dem kleinen Rad hatte. Ich war wunschlos glücklich.

Ich kann mir nicht ausmalen, wie sich das Rad mit einem Top-Fahrwerk und Top-Bremsen fahren würde. :D

Pro/Contra:
+ 200mm PNW Dropper (ET 290mm) passt komplett in den Rahmen
+ Ausstattung (Sattel, XT Bremsscheiben, komplette SLX Gruppe ohne Kompromisse, wie bei anderen Herstellern)
+ Lack sieht gut aus
+ Abfahrtsperformance vom anderen Stern ;)
+ keine klappernden Züge
- schwer (Rahmen in Gr. M 4,1kg ohne Dämpfer)
- Pressfit Innenlager (Spezialwerkzeug für Tausch nötig)
- Kettenstreben wachsen nicht mit, bei Größen ab L könnte es zu einer unausgewogenem Balance kommen

Bei den Rennen habe ich mir dann irgendwann gedacht, dass Größe L wahrscheinlich besser gewesen wäre bei 1,81m.
Deswegen habe ich mich vom META TR wieder getrennt.

La géométrie Commençal me plait toujours autant, ils font des vtt pour ce faire plaisir en descente. Il a également un très bon comportement en montée. Les suspensions sont éfficaces, rien a redire. Le groupe de transmission SLX marche bien. Seul gros regret, les freins SLX sont clairement pas adaptés à ce type de VTT, dosage non précis et ne freinent plus le vtt au dessus de 30km.
