Offroad.cc to check out the NINETY-SIX 8000
After testing its 'cross country' brother, the NINETY-SX RC 9000 a few weeks ago (check out the story here) and calling it 'a rapid ride both uphill and downhill' it was now time for the more trial biased NINETY-SIX 8000 to be put under the microscope.
Tester Justin pointed out the well-sorted kinematic, the well thought through tyre and wheel combo, the functional component choice and the hugely capable geometry that gives the bike fantastic climbing and descending abilities.
HIS FINAL VERDICT:
'I could see this NinetySix 8000 in my life long-term (with some minor spec tweaks), well done Merida.'
OVERALL: 4 out of 5 stars
QUALITY: 4 out of 5 stars
PERFORMANCE: 4 out of 5 stars
VALUE: 4 out of 5 stars
