Com­men­cal Meta TR V4.2 Es­sen­tial

Cycling Plus (Malaysia) - - BIKE OF THE YEAR 2018 -

Com­men­cal’s trail-fo­cused Meta is a whole bag of fun that’s most suited to flat-out fast rid­ers look­ing for a lit­tle bike to chuck around. It feels like a 4X bike of old, lov­ing to get air­time and slap its way around tight corners in the woods. The low front end and bal­anced front-to-rear feel mean you can re­ally load the front wheel to get the 27.5x2.3in Maxxis Min­ion tyre dig­ging into the dirt, while the Spank Oozy wheels are stiff and di­rect without be­ing harsh. It’s not quite as com­posed as some of the 29ers here when the trail gets lumpy, or as rapid at cov­er­ing ground, but it’s still a se­ri­ous amount of fun and per­fect for mess­ing about on a Satur­day af­ter­noon.
