Bikes from Commencal are all about one thing: shredding the downhill! And the looks of the META POWER SX BOSCH ESSENTIAL already hint that this beast, with its plush 170 mm, is no exception to the rule.
The Performance Line CX from Bosch shows impressively that they shouldn't be limited to DIY and household products. No matter how steep or technical the climb is: the Bosch motor makes it conquerable! At the same time, the drive provides a very well-rounded feeling while riding with a dynamic power delivery. This great combination mixed with lots of power, is something only a few other motors at Bosch's level can achieve. Fans of XXL tours are greatly restricted by the META POWER SX BOSCH ESSENTIAL with only an average range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the META POWER SX BOSCH ESSENTIAL in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (7000) .

The good Fox chassis absorbs even larger roots with the calmness of a Buddhist monk. The thick 38mm stanchions on the fork provide an extra dose of steering precision and performance. At the brakes, Commencal instals upper class brakes with two pistons and large brake rotors from Shimano. The average shifting components and accessories leave some tuning potential open. For most e-bikers, this should be an acceptable point. The handling of the bike is pleasantly balanced due to the moderate geometry. This allows you to intuitively control the bike over the trails. The low bottom bracket height is a party pooper for the handling on the trail. On other bikes, you are more centrally located behind the handlebar. Due to the short chainstays , when climbing steep sections, it requires active weight shifting to prevent the front wheel from lifting. It's no use beating around the bush: the geometry of Commencal doesn't suit our taste. Competitors are closer to the cutting edge here.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Commencal META POWER SX BOSCH ESSENTIAL

The META POWER SX BOSCH ESSENTIAL isnt`t a specialist on the trail. Despite an average groupset and a mediocre range, it remains thanks to a good motor, a good chassis and a good brake system a solid all-rounder with a wide range of use.
