2023 Commencal Meta SX

2023 Commencal Meta SX

Equipping this META SX with different sized 29/27-inch wheels is not the result of a trend that we're following. Quite simply, this way the bike is much more balanced, specifically relating to grip on the front and back - the large 29-inch wheel on the front allows more confidence and rolling capacity whilst the 27.5-inch rear wheel offers more manoeuvrability and responsiveness.

The result is a bike that is more agile and easier in the steeps, more efficient under braking and more dynamic when pushing hard.
