Erice van Leuven's Commencal Meta Ht Junior with Manitou Mezzer & Hayes Dominion A4 Brakes

Bike of the Month June 2021

Last month we featured Aussie Masters' racer Dave carving up with his Mezzer.  This month's bike and Mezzer belong to 14 year old kiwi ripper Erice Van Leuven.  Erice has a new Commencal Meta Ht Junior and the Mezzer is one Shockcraft has specially tuned. It's a challenge to get these big forks supple enough and moving fast enough for lighter riders.  But after testing 4 different damper tunes with a custom machined piston I reckon we nailed it.  The whole fork then went on our spring-tester to find air pressures (2 5psi main, 30 psi IRT) that gave the spring-rate and ramp up Erice needs.  She's totally stoked with the results.

Erice's feedback:
The fork is feeling amazing and wayyyy smoother, and it has transformed the hardtail into a new bike!

Watch how it sticks the landing in the video below.
