  • Featuring a 100 mm air suspension fork and fast-rolling 29er wheels, the BIG.NINE 100 allows you to cover ground quickly and comfortably. The slightly more minimalistic double chainring setup provides a broad range of gears, perfect for long off-road sessions and fast blasts through the urban jungle. The slightly more upright riding position puts less strain on the lower back and also improves the visibility of what lies ahead.

    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'.

    X-TAPER HEADTUBE

    Our X-Tapered headtube offers the space for a tapered fork to be fitted. Tapered forks offer superb stiffness and precise and deliver confidence-inspiring steering.

    SMOOTH WELDING

    Sometimes called ‘double pass welding’, a second pass over the weld gives a clean organic look to the frame. At first glance, you will be convinced it is carbon.

    IMAGE

    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.

    IMAGE

    DOWN TUBE EXIT

    Ensures that internally routed cables and wires can’t move freely and remain easily accessible for servicing.

    RACELITE 61 ALUMINIUM

    We use a minimum of 6061 aluminium. The pay back is that it’s possible to make lighter and more advanced frames. We use an additional heat treatment and double-butted wall thicknesses to produce light and stiff frames.

    TFS - TECHNO FORMING SYSTEM

    Technoforming is a mechanical forming process, shaping the tubes by using negative moulds, at times combined with an internal metal core.

    F-MOUNT

    ‘F-Mount’ equipped bikes have integrated fittings for mud guards (some bikes require model specific mud guards), making fitting fast and simple.

    K-MOUNT

    Integrated mount on the chainstay to fit a MERIDA kickstand (or any commercial kickstand).

    C-MOUNT

    ‘C-Mount’ equipped bikes have the fixing points for a rear rack already integrated (some bikes require model specific rear rack), making fitting fast, simple and reliable.
