Distributors Madison are releasing a special UK-specific version of the Commencal Meta 5.5.

The limited edition Meta 5.5 UK features Fox suspension and a mix of Shimano XT and SLX running gear, and is black with green and white decals.

Its release follows the success of the 2008 Meta 5.5 XT, a limited edition, UK-only collaboration with Shimano celebrating the 25th anniversary of the XT groupset.

The frame features the same upgrades as the standard 2009 Meta 5.5 - a stiffer linkage, refined hydroformed top tube offering increased standover height, stiffer swingarm, slacker head tube angle and integrated headset.

The bikes will be available from mid-December priced at £2,153.18. The first batch will have white fork lowers while later models will have black lowers. For your local dealer, see www.commencal.co.uk.
