META POWER 29 – New Engine, New Battery, New Frame
The switch to an integrated battery from the 2020 META POWER 29 range has significantly improved its performance. For 2021, we’re taking full advantage of all the experience we’ve collected from our numerous tests in order to make it even more effective.
Equipped with the all-new SHIMANO EP8 engine, the bike now features a higher torque (85 N.m), whilst the power output curve has been optimised. The result? A softer bike with better control, grip and more responsive to pedal strokes. To top it off, the new 630Wh battery increases capacity significantly, and that’s not all? The positioning of the motor is such to enable the lowest battery position possible, meaning much better weight distribution. Finally, a new engine mount combined with a new generation engine guard optimises space and reduces the risks of it catching the ground.
With 170mm travel at the front and 160mm on the back, the META POWER 29 is a bike designed for riding the most technically demanding trails, both uphill and downhill. With a slacker head angle and an extended wheelbase, it has gained in stability without compromising the handling.
Like the META AM 29, the META POWER 29 will delight riders hungry for performance and who like to commit, regardless of the difficulty of the trails. An electric enduro made to keep going and going, fast.
The look of this new bike has evolved in depth. It’s very simple, everything’s new! The sharper lines clearly underline the improved performance.
META POWER 29 ESSENTIAL
This META POWER 29 ESSENTIAL in ‘Heritage Green’ is fresher than ever.
FOX and SHIMANO dominate this META POWER 29. The new SHIMANO EP8 engine and its 630Wh battery significantly increase the capacity. FOX takes care of the suspension with its new enduro fork, the 38 Performance. As the name suggests, they have 38mm diameter upper tubes for added precision when the going gets rough. As for the shock, we have the FOX Float DPX2 Performance which will provide you with foolproof grip and dynamism. Modern in every way, this model also features the new SHIMANO SLX 12-speed transmission and Deore 4-piston 203mm brakes.
