  • Entry-level 29er hardtail built around our double butted aluminium frame with a more comfort inspired geometry. The 29er wheels help you cover ground quickly and impress with their outstanding 'roll over' ability. The Suntour fork help to improve the comfort even further, and the broad gear range of the triple chainring Shimano drivetrain let you conquer even the steepest hills with ease.

    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'.

    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.

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