  • Our carbon BIG.NINE XT hardtail that's dripping with Shimano's XT components. But the XT is more than just a high-quality drivetrain and powerful brakes. To finish the picture and to make our XT one of the most raced BIG.NINE's in our line-up, we spec our CF3 carbon frameset with a Reba fork, tubeless ready wheels and a hugely compliant carbon S-FLEX seat post.

    Mountain biking is one of the most varied cycling disciplines and probably the most demanding when it comes to equipment. While full suspension bikes offer amazing riding characteristics, the classic hardtail remains one of the purest tools for the job. Our 29er wheel equipped BIG.NINE range comes in carbon and aluminium and features multiple geometry options. The carbon and LITE framed BIG.NINE, with its racing geometry, is an ideal companion on XC and marathon race tracks whilst the more relaxed geometry of the BIG.NINE TFS and SPEED offers a more comfortable, upright riding position. Our classic hardtails are the backbone of our range and showcase the enormous wealth of experience and knowledge we could gain in almost half a century of bike production and manufacturing. The BIG.NINE range symbolises the symbiosis between modern frame technology, attention to detail and craftsmanship 'Made in Taiwan'.

    INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

    Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.

    SMART ENTRY

    Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling when the trails or roads get rough. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.

    DI2 READY

    Bikes/frames with the symbol ‘Di2 Ready’ are prepared for the installation of Di2 technology with battery mounting in the seat post or within the fork steerer.

    NANO MATRIX CARBON

    To protect the integrity of carbon frames, the fibres are bonded together with an epoxy resin with added nano particles, increasing impact resistance by up to 40%.

    When creating the individual carbon elements, an inflatable bladder is used to ensure there are no wrinkles inside the tube as these can add weight and create weakness. This results in a lighter, stiffer and stronger frame.
