Bikes from Commencal are all about one thing: shredding the downhill! And the looks of the META POWER SX BOSCH SIGNATURE 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. The Bosch motor takes away the fear of even the steepest ramps. The combination of a very well-rounded riding feeling and a progressive power delivery characterises the Bosch Performance Line CX. This great combination mixed with lots of power, is something only a few other motors at Bosch's level can achieve. The average range can become a problem especially for long mountain bike rides.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the META POWER SX BOSCH SIGNATURE in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (9000) .

The highend Fox chassis absorbs big hits like Chuck Norris and provides a lot of traction and control. The thick 38mm stanchions on the fork provide an extra dose of steering precision and performance. Bad brakes reduce the riding pleasure. Fortunately, this is not the case with the META POWER SX BOSCH SIGNATURE. With their two pistons and large brake rotors the Shimano brake brakes good. Wide tires provide more grip and comfort. Commencal tends to fit narrow tires with its #reifen_inch_breite Commencal tires. For an Enduro, we would prefer wider treads. In the area of shifting and the overall parts, Commencal ist on the money. The superb accessories make sure people will notice this bike, no matter where you rock up with it. The moderate head tube angle provides a good compromise between stability and agility when going downhill. The reach is also right there in the middle ground. The low bottom bracket height will likely be a sticking point for trail riders, as it negatively affects handling. Short chainstays and make the front end light in steep climbs. To keep the front wheel on the ground, you need to consciously lean forward. 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.
