    HIGHLIGHTS

    6061 series double butted and technoformed aluminium. Redesigner in 2019 using a new tube set with a more modern design. Comes equipped with inboard disc mounts, as well as F, C and K-mounts. 

    Dependent on frame size we offer 650B or 29er versions on our TFS and SPEED frame level. The requirements of smaller riders (reduced standover height, preferred lower cockpit) are best met by 650B on S and M frame sizes whilst at the other side of the spectrum, L and XL only come with 29er wheels. Size M is available in either 650B or 29er. 

    Following in the footsteps of the TFS frame which was introduced in 2018, the SPEED frame is now in line to get a makeover for 2019. The introduction of slim tube shapes creates a new look and a more relaxed geometry, through a shorter top tube and a higher head tube, resulting in a more upright riding position and enhanced trail visibility. The new frame also comes with IS brake mounts that are positioned within the rear triangle as well as with kickstand and fender mounts.

    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.

    Technologies

    RACELITE 61 ALUMINIUM

    We use a minimum of 6061 grade aluminium on all our bikes. It’s particularly well suited to being shaped with our hydroforming and technoforming processes, which allow us to vary the wall thickness to create double-butted tubing and complex frame shapes. It’s also an alloy that welds easily, and once it has been carefully heat treated to maximise strength, it means we can create strong and lightweight bicycle frames for you to enjoy.

    TFS - TECHNO FORMING SYSTEM

    Manipulating the tube shape and thickness greatly impacts the appearance, weight and functionality of our aluminium frames. One technology that allows us to do that is TECHNO FORMING, where plain aluminium tubes get mechanically formed by using an external form and an internal metal core. The result, beautifully shaped tubes with varying wall thickness, ready to be used to create our technoformed aluminium frames.

    F-MOUNT

    Being able to turn your bike into an all-weather commuter that has mudguards and other fittings can be a real plus, in particular when riding on wet and perhaps muddy roads and tracks on a regular basis. To make fitting easy, some of our bikes are F-MOUNT equipped. These integrated fittings mounts make adding mudguards fast and simple. Please note that some bikes require model-specific mudguards.

    K-MOUNT

    When using your bike in an urban environment, where you might not always have the option to use a specific bike stand, a kickstand is an ideal solution to park your bike safely. Some of our bikes come with a neatly integrated K-MOUNT, which makes fitting a MERIDA kickstand (or any commercial kickstand) easy. And if you don’t want to have a kickstand and prefer the clean appearance of your frame, the K-MOUNT is neatly tucked away underneath your chainstay, difficult to spot if you don’t know it is there.

    C-MOUNT

    Similar to our F-MOUNT, where various fixing points for mudguards are part of the frame offering, the C-MOUNT equipped bikes have the fixing points for a rear rack already integrated, making fitting fast, simple and reliable. The C-MOUNTS are an additional feature that improves the day-to-day versatility by adding loading capacity to your bike, ideal for commuting and shopping trips. Please note that some bikes require model-specific rear racks.
