 DH LEGACY

The META SX V5 is driven before its ridden.
Bike park laps or secret trails, this is the bike that will be up for any scenario.
Ready to be pinned and with monstrous grip, the META SX V5 is the ideal tool for riders looking for a mountain bike that feels like a mini-downhill rig; a strong characteristic now associated with our VCS kinematics.

UNCOMPROMISING KINEMATICS

The META SX V5 offers maximum support whatever the track.

As with the META V5, the VIRTUAL CONTACT SYSTEM (VCS) kinematics are designed to combine liveliness and adaptability to the terrain.

On our META SX V5 we have pushed the progressiveness slider. Combined with more generous travel this bike offers excellent impact management.

Thanks to the VCS there is no compromise made between downhill prowess and climbing capability.

ALL FOR SPEED

The META SX V5 is made to go fast!

A 29-inch wheel at the front provides confidence and grip plus increased clearance.

The 27.5-inch rear wheel offers more responsiveness for a bike that is easier on the slope, more efficient when braking and more dynamic. The smaller back wheel also makes it easier to move the bike in the air, perfect for whips and scrubs.

WHEEL SIZE

The mullet geometry is inspired by our downhill bike with long chain stays to balance the grip between the front and rear wheel axles of the META SX V5.

REAR TRIANGLE

The rear triangle has been made stiffer by the addition of an expander between the seat stays, for greater precision and load-bearing capacity.

Chain stay lengths vary depending on the size of the bike.

RELIABILITY & MAINTENANCE

The META SX V5 pivots are equipped axles which have expanders that prevent loosening.

The half-shell dust covers facilitate assembly of the rear arm and protect the bearings from mud and dust. The contact surface between all elements is optimised.

The bearings are oversized and have grease and seals designed to increase their lifespan.

EFBE TRI-TEST® CERTIFIED

The reliability of our products has always been our priority. In addition to our specific tests, we decided to put the META SX V5 to the test at EFBE. An independent laboratory which offers tests superior to the ISO 4210 standard.
The META SX V5 frame is therefore certified EFBE 5.
Specific to gravity and e-bike practices, this is the highest possible classification in terms of reliability and resistance that it is possible to obtain for a mountain bike.


ALUMINIUM

A PREMIUM MATERIAL

Aluminium is an advanced material. The exceptional mechanical characteristics of AL6066 and its recyclability make it a first-choice alloy to use for our META SX V5. Welds, tube shapes and thicknesses are designed for an efficient bike.

Together with the manual production processes, the result is a guarantee remarkable quality.
There have been more than 328 production steps to achieve this META SX V5 for an unparalleled result on the trails.

Finally, aluminum is recyclable and infinitely valuable. This allows us to offer the highest quality, with responsibility, ethics and respect for the people who work with us.

CHOOSE YOUR CABLE ROUTING

As on all our standard bikes, the META SX V5’s cables and Durit® are fully guided inside the frame. Maintenance is now child’s play!

You also have the option of passing the cables through the head tube.

IMPROVED FRAME PROTECTORS

The META SX V5 frame has protection on the underside the downtube.

To avoid extraneous noise, it showcases a specific chain stay and seat stay protector.

The Virtual Contact System […] manages to combine excellent small bump sensitivity, mid stroke and end stroke support. For full runs, the META V5 SX is right up there being the out and out most comfortable bikes of test. META V5 SX is actually a remarkably solid all allrounder when it comes to descending. […] It would be good at everything from bike park to enduro racing.

FUN IS FAST

The META SX has always been a super engaging bike. Inspired by our downhill bikes, this fifth generation loves it when it’s time to get stuck into the slope.

Big enduro, freeride, mini-DH: the META SX V5 is your best ally.
