META POWER SX – Self Shuttle Mode
Since it arrived in 2020 the META POWER SX has given many riders the chance to (re)discover e-bikes in a very different light. It’s a 27-inch model with long travel that extenuates pure riding with the best trajectory, so there are no more excuses on hardest, steepest sections! For 2021, this platform has improved in many areas and all are proving to be even more effective!
This META POWER SX is now equipped with the new SHIMANO EP8 engine. With a torque of 85 N.m, the power output curve has been improved to result in a bike that’s smoother and more responsive to pedal strokes. The positioning of the motor is such to enable the lowest battery position possible, meaning much better weight distribution. A new engine mount combined with a new generation engine guard, both optimise space and reduce the risks of catching the ground. Finally, a new 630Wh battery increases the capacity a lot! This pushes the META POWER SX into the realms of being more of a ‘shuttle bike’ – it climbs without a fuss for as many descents as your arms can cope with!
The new 2021 version also sees an increase in travel to 180mm at the front and 165mm on the back. With 27.5 wheels the bike feels at ease through short steep chutes where a lot of downforces is applied. The geometry has been designed accordingly with a long front and a slacker steerer angle. Everything is held with a 40mm stem to provide excellent downhill positioning, where this bike is completely at home. Longer in length, it also gains in stability on all types of terrain.
The new sharper and more defined lines of this META POWER SX equal improved performance.
META POWER SX RACE
The META POWER SX RACE is explosive! Not least thanks to its ‘Matte Graphite’ paint and full stealth black components.
It features the best ROCKSHOX suspension currently available for enduro. Upfront, the new ZEB Ultimate fork with 38mm uppers offer all the necessary adjustments, both hydraulically and with its completely redesigned Debonair air spring. On the back the Super Deluxe Ultimate shock. All for maximum grip and performance on the most demanding trails and terrain. The SRAM GX Eagle 12-speed drivetrain features a 10-52t wide gear set. An example of reliability and precision that allows you to tackle climbs in peace and with panache! The SRAM Code R brakes provide power, a true-touch-feel and reliability. Finally, e-bike specific E13 wheels are designed to withstand the harshest knocks and shocks. And that’s ideal because this bike is made for that!
