Superlight, using the highest quality carbon fibres and an EPS core (frame weight approx. 880 g BIG.NINE - M, including paint) making it one of the lightest frames in the market. Aero profiled down tube, leaf spring profiled chain and seat stays for maximum comfort. Boost axle standard and tapered head tube deliver stiffness and steering precision. ‘Smart Entry’ cable routing prevents rattling. Includes integrated down tube and chainstay protectors for extra frame protection.
All models down to the BIG.NINE LITE frame level feature a 30.9 mm seat post, the enhanced connection area increases the strength around the top tube/seat tube join and allows the option of fitting a dropper seat post. Models down to BIG.NINE LIMITED allow internal cable routing for the dropper post while the remaining models would require external routing.
Our classic hardtails are not just a much-loved trail companion but the international cycling press also value our design and engineering work. De Telegraaf in the Netherlands made the BIG.NINE XT-EDITION their test winner and polish bike magazine bikeBoard rewarded the BIG.NINE 500 with their over-all test winning credentials as well as with the ‘lightest’ and ‘value for money’ accolades.
Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling when the trail gets rough. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.
Our carbon and LITE aluminium models feature a long 422 mm reach, steep 73.5° seat angle, slack 70° head angle and an 80 mm stem (BIG.NINE – M), affording the BIG.NINE next-generation XC geometry. Aggressive agility meets stable calmness; perfect for today’s demanding courses.
