META POWER SX ESSENTIAL
Like the META SX, the new META POWER SX is designed for performance and commitment, no matter how difficult the trails are that you encounter. An electric-enduro made to have fun, ride fast and keep going for miles and miles (with lots of smiles)!
It features different sized wheels, 29-inch on the front and 27.5 on the back. We are determined to continuously improve all our bikes. In order to continue to move more up-market, we use our previous platforms to determine specific points of improvement. After two years of loyal service, a redesign of the META POWER 29 and SX was called for. They are now one!
To do this, the geometry of the bike was completely reworked, and the kinematics too. It's thanks to this experience that we are now able to present the most successful version of our META POWER ever made, the META POWER SX! Equipping this META POWER SX with 29/27 wheels is not the result of a trend that we're following. It's because this way, the bike has much more balanced grip at the front and the back. The larger 29-inch wheel on the front gives more confidence and clearance whilst the 27.5-inch rear wheel offers more manoeuvrability and responsiveness. The result is a bike that is more agile and easier on steeper slopes and is more efficient under braking and livelier when pushing.
Once again, our choice to work with Aluminium has allowed us to accompany this change in wheel size with an adjustment of the geometry. A shorter reach, a straightened steerer angle and longer chain stays allow the rider to be repositioned in the centre of the bike, which in turn will provide more tolerance and precision.
One of the points that has changed the most is undoubtedly the way the suspension works. Apart from the kinematics which have been revised to provide more dynamism, we have made sure to grant the stiffness of the rear triangle to the overall dynamic of the bike. Through new double row Enduro Bearings, eliminating any deformation, the new META SX offers perfect deformation/rigidity management to provide grip, comfort and performance.
In addition to all this in-depth work, as on our META POWER TR, META TR and CLASH models, we now offer a "Flip Chip" on the shock extension in order to be able to better adjust the geometry, and therefore fit with your style! This system also means you can adapt the height of the bottom bracket as well as the steerer and saddle angles within seconds. Depending on your preferences, you can have the choice between a dynamic bike that's perfect for big pedalling trips, or a more progressive version which is ideal for days in the bike park or on more committed trails.
As an EMTB and Gravity brand, we know that it is essential to collaborate with recognised component specialists. Equipping the META POWER SX with the SHIMANO EP8 engine was therefore an obvious choice. Why?
It has a high torque (85N.m) whilst power curves are optimised.
- The result is a softer bike for better grip control and more responsiveness to each pedal stroke.
- The 630Wh battery increases capacity tenfold, perfect for long days.
- A new engine mount, combined with a new-gen engine guard, improves the size and reduces the risk of impact with the ground.
Finally, we have worked on a detail that makes the difference, the finished look.
The welds have been the subject of meticulous work to reduce them as much as possible without affecting the solidity of the frame. The cable routing is neat for easier maintenance, the cables being easily accessible in the down tube, while grommets are placed at the ends to give perfect support and prevent penetration of water and mud. Installing a bottle cage has also been made easy.
About the META POWER SX ESSENTIAL
With a shiny Keswick Green finish this META POWER SX ESSENTIAL is unstated e-class.
FOX and SHIMNAO are at the controls of this META POWER SX ESSENTIAL because they are simply the best.
FOX takes care of the suspension:
- The 38 Performance EMTB fork with 38mm uppers provides stiffness and precision when the going gets tough.
- The FOX Float X Performance shock provides rock-solid grip and reactivity.
There is also the SHIMANO SLX groupset which is renowned for reliability and is easy to maintain:
- The 12-speed transmission and 10-51t gears are perfect for rides with a lot of vertical.
- The 4-piston brakes and their 220 mm discs offer good feel and power, for quiet and consistent braking whatever the conditions.
- The SHIMANO EP8 engine and 630WH battery means you can just go and keep going.

BATTERY RECYCLING: In partnership with SHIMANO, COMMENCAL supports a voluntary battery recycling program for ebike batteries. For each META POWER sold COMMENCAL will contribute 7EUR to fundraising organisation COREPILE. This sum is paid through SHIMANO France. When your battery reaches the end of its life, it would be great if you could send it back to us for recycling. Contact us for more info on the procedure.
