New Bike: Commencal's 2017 Range and Rocky Mountain Prototype Enduro Bike

Commencal finally releases their new range for 2017, with several new bikes. Not really new, because they are the bikes that already exist before, but Commencal makes them better than before. Like others, Commencal also sell the bikes directly to the customer, that gives more advantages, both for the company and the customers. So, the fans, please welcome the new Commencal bikes for 2017.

This is the bike that already exist few times before, and it makes a comeback for 2017. With new finishing details and also the latest parts. The new Meta SX V3 comes with 160mm rear travel combined 170 mm front travel. The fullbike version offers the combo Rockshox Lyrik Solo Air and Monarch R Plus. It also equipped by SRAM's kit, Level T Brakeset and NX 1x11 drivetrain.

The shorter version of the first bike. It has 130mm rear travel and 140mm front travel. Commencal says that the Meta TR V3 is their entry level, but later they continue with "But that doesn't mean it's low-end!". Same with the higher version, it also equipped by SRAM's kit - Rockshox Sektor 140 mm, Monarch R, SRAM X5 2x10 speed. The brakeset is the exception, with the Tektro brakeset.

One of the most fun hardtail bike out there, the Meta HT TR also gets updates. The brand says "With the Meta HT TR, we’ve concentrated primarily on the frame, then the forks and then finally, the transmission. Equipped with SRAM and RockShox components, the new Meta HT TR is ready for the trails..." For more information about those bikes, keep watching their website.

While Commencal is on their press release, another big brand in mountain bike industry the Rocky Mountain seems also ready to build a new enduro machine as their prototype bike is spotted in La Thuile. There are not many information about the bike, but at the sight it seems that the Maiden DH is the inspiration. This photo taken from a forum in VitalMTB web.
This Rocky Mountain enduro prototype has similar Smoothlink suspension design just like their DH machine. As this prototype comes with carbon material, it maybe needs no long time to see the complete bike of this prototype. Keep watching it, guys.
