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.
