Commencal META HT AM Essential

Commencal has long been of the belief that “it’s better to have a good hardtail than a bad full suspension bike.” The Commencal META HT has very similar numbers to the full bounce version and even sports a similarly aggressive looking silhouette. As hardtails go, this one looked from the off like it was going to be fun. The AM...

The Commencal Meta range has a pedigree that seems to go back to the dawn of time almost, it’s been a hugely popular bike for the brand. In the early days it was defining All Mountain and these days is synonymous with enduro. Available in various guises we were big fans of the new Meta 4 when it was launched...

Hardtails are still very much commonplace around the world, but there are only a few countries in the world that produce the type of bike we have here. The UK, Canada, they've been at it for years, but the Andorran brand have also been on the same page for some time. What I'm referring to is the idea of a hardtail,...

Andorra based Commencal have already created an impressive Meta V4 line up, and not ones to rest on their laurels have added two new limited edition versions to the mix. The ‘Race Brushed’ model sports higher spec, and, of course, price tag. The ‘Ride’ edition we have here, still comes dressed in some fine attire though! It features the same...

Everyone needs a hardtail in their life, fact. Not only do they teach you how to ride properly, but they also provide endless amounts of fun and excitement, at any speed. With the recent, frenzied developments in full suspension bikes, an opportunity has risen for bike manufacturers to take a seat back at the drawing board and create a modern...

Commencal Supreme DH V4

The standout feature of the new Commencal Supreme DH V4 is the obvious deviation from the established norm in suspension design. There’s method in their madness, though, which has created one of the most exciting and fun downhill bikes in recent years. The foundation to their idea is simple: short bikes are fun and great to ride on technical terrain,...

Commencal Meta AM V4

One bike to do it all! I wonder if the Hobbits were as sceptical when they heard a similar phrase! For years my stable of bikes has increased, with each individual bike having a very specific and narrowed use, a downhill bike, a trail bike, an XC bike, a jump bike, and so the list goes on. Try and throw...

Commencal Meta Trail Race 650

The Meta V4 Trail Race from Commencal is a 120mm travel bike designed to be fast and nimble on a wide variety of terrain. It utilises the same Contact System suspension set-up as its bigger brother that we reviewed a few issues ago. The system has been fine-tuned for the type of terrain this bike is aimed for and the...

The Meta V4 line up is an impressive one; it features four levels of bike, the Origin, Essential, Race Plus and the World Cup. All of the models feature the same 6066 Aluminium Triple Butted hydroformed frame based around the new Contact System suspension platform. The new design mounts the shock on the top tube and uses a simple two-stage...

Commencal Meta AM 3

Commencal have always had a logical approach to designing and building mountain bikes and that is set to continue. Rather than come down heavily on one side or another in the great wheel size debate they have released the Meta in all three. Pick the one that best suits the way you ride and the trails you ride. Simple. On...

Commencal Meta AM Girly 27.5

Intro I must admit to being slightly adverse to anything with names such as ‘Flower/Bliss/ Diva’ when it comes to female specific products in the extreme sports world, so when it came to the women’s Commencal Meta AM Girly you can imagine my scrunched-up nose response. However, I confess I have eaten humble pie in a BIG way this time....

Commencal are a brand that have done things very much their own way and have built a great reputation for bomber bikes that are an out and out joy to ride gravity assisted. The Meta SL has been developed to fill the gap in their range at the 120mm trail bike spot. Our Meta SL 4 sported the same lovely...
