    HIGHLIGHTS

    CF3 main triangle combined with CF5 rear triangle. Full carbon with ‘Nano Matrix’ for additional impact resistance. ‘Smart Entry’ cable routing for rattle free running. Super stiff power transfer and agile handling provided by the tapered head tube, Boost axle standard and asymmetric chainstays.

    Not just race proven by the MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM in their final 2016 season but still competed on by living mountain bike legends like Gunn-Rita Dahle Flesjå and José Antonio Hermida who are looking for lightning fast acceleration, great climbing and descending ability as well as super low weight. 

    Rough trails and increased cornering speeds demand precise steering. Our tapered head tube with 1 1/8" bearings in the top and 1 1/2" at the base, combined with a tapered fork, allow this, giving the rider the confidence to push into the next corner that little bit harder.

    You will find a NINETY-SIX to match your frame material requirements as well as your budget. We have the latest carbon technology with the superlight CF5 frame, a more budget-friendly full carbon CF4 frame, a carbon front triangle with aluminium rear (CFA) through to a triple butted, hydroformed 6066 aluminium frame.

    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.

    Most models offer Boost technology at the front and rear. The shallower axle standard of 110 mm (front) and 148 mm (rear) allows for a wider spoke angle, resulting in a stiffer and stronger wheel, hugely beneficial on these bikes given the impacts they endure. The BIG.TRAIL 200 has 100 mm fork spacing.

    X-TAPER HEADTUBE

    Steering precision is vital to safe and confident handling, and the X-TAPER HEADTUBE allows us to significantly boost this precision. A larger headset diameter at the bottom paired with a smaller one at the top helps to deal with the strains modern riding and equipment can put on the headtube, all without adding unnecessary weight. It allows tapered forks to be fitted with ease and delivers precise and confidence-inspiring steering.

    INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

    On the majority of our frames, we run the gear and brake cables and hoses through the frame. The cables enter and exit the frame through smooth sockets, or we use one of our other systems like SMART ENTRY or WIRE PORT to be routed through. Running the cables inside the frame protects them from the elements, gives a clean and neat look and can offer aerodynamic advantages.

    IMAGE

    DOWN TUBE EXIT

    DOWN TUBE EXIT is a feature seen on some of our frames with internally routed cables. By slightly overlapping the downtube where it connects to the bottom bracket, it leaves a small space that allows cables to exit easily. This means they are easily accessible for routine maintenance or replacement, but it prevents excessive movement and noise that can cause wear and distraction.

    IMAGE

    SMART ENTRY

    Many of our frames offer internal cable routing, where the gear and brake cables are run through the frame for maximum protection and a clean look. Some internally run cables can rattle when riding over uneven surfaces, but our SMART ENTRY system prevents this from happening. Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent noisy cable movement. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with any kind of cable or wire.

    DI2 READY

    Shimano's Di2 electronic shifting system offers fast, smooth and reliable shifting. In particular, in the road world, it has proven itself as the primary choice when top performance is at the top of the agenda. With that in mind, we have a broad selection of performance road frames that are Di2 READY and can accommodate the electrical cable, battery and other little tweaks that the system requires.

    RACE LINK

    A single-pivot rear suspension system optimised for XC riding and 1x drivetrains. A super light (80 g) carbon rocker and linkage system create a light, efficient rear end, totally eliminating pedal-bob.

    NANO MATRIX CARBON

    NANO MATRIX CARBON is a special kind of carbon fibre where we add extremely tiny, nano-scale particles to the resin that binds the individual carbon fibres together. These then work on a molecular level to protect them from damage. It’s so effective that it can actually increase the finished carbon fibre’s impact resistance by up to 40%, allowing us to build stronger and lighter composite frames that result in a faster and tougher bike.

    AWS ANTI WRINKLE SYSTEM

    This is a method we use to manufacture our carbon fibre frames. First, the carbon fibre that makes up the frame is laid around special formers. We then use a bladder to compress the layers against the outside of the frame mould, giving a smooth and wrinkle-free internal finish, removing any voids in between the layers of carbon that can cause potential weak points, resulting in a stronger, lighter frame.
