Highlights

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 trails and roads get rough. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.

‘Boost’ standard front & rear. The extra 6 mm rear hub and 10 mm front hub spacing in comparison with conventional hubs brings the width up to 148 mm / 110 mm and allows for a shallower spoke angle for an even stiffer and stronger wheel. On top of that, the chain line moves outwards – an important requirement for short chainstays.

Technologies

IMAGE

PROLITE 66 TRIPLE BUTTED ALUMINUM

Our proven high-end aluminium (6066) is extremely light and durable. Using triple butted wall thicknesses and hydroforming technology, we can tune the aluminium tubes to give the best possible stiffness to weight ratio.

IMAGE

HFS - HYDRO FORMING SYSTEM

Tubes are inserted into negative moulds and a hot emulsion of water and oil is forced through at pressure, enabling them to be formed into complex shapes.

IMAGE

X-TAPER HEADTUBE

Using a tapered head tube with 1 1/8" bearings in the top and 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" in the bottom creates superb stiffness and precise, confidence inspiring steering.

IMAGE

SMOOTH WELDING

Sometimes called ‘double pass welding’, a second pass over the weld gives a clean organic look to the frame. At first glance, you will be convinced it is carbon.

IMAGE

INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.

IMAGE

DOWN TUBE EXIT

Ensures that internally routed cables and wires can’t move freely and remain easily accessible for servicing.

IMAGE

SMART ENTRY

Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling when the trails or roads get rough. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.

IMAGE

DI2 READY

Bikes/frames with the symbol ‘Di2 Ready’ are prepared for the installation of Di2 technology with battery mounting in the seat post or within the fork steerer.

IMAGE

CHAINSTAY POST MOUNT DISC

In-board brake mounts are positioned within the rear triangle to protect them. The caliper supported by the stronger chainstay is able to distribute braking forces better. Internal cable routing is also easier and neater via the chainstay.

IMAGE

12-148 BOOST STANDARD THROUGH AXLE

Boost standard – wider axle widths; the by 6 mm increased now 148 mm wide rear through axle (12mm axle diameter) allows a shallower spoke angle for stiffer wheels, especially beneficial in 29ers or for MTB wheels that are used in very demanding conditions. The Boost standard also offers greater tyre clearance in the frame.

IMAGE

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.

IMAGE

NANO MATRIX CARBON

To protect the integrity of carbon frames, the fibres are bonded together with an epoxy resin with added nano particles, increasing impact resistance by up to 40%.

IMAGE

AWS

When creating the individual carbon elements, an inflatable bladder is used to ensure there are no wrinkles inside the tube as these can add weight and create weakness. This results in a lighter, stiffer and stronger frame.

IMAGE

REMOTE LOCKOUT

The suspension fork and/or rear shock can be locked out via a ‘remote control’ lever on the handlebar.

IMAGE

15-110 BOOST STANDARD THROUGH AXLE

Boost standard – wider axle widths; the by 10 mm increased now 110 mm wide front through axle (15mm axle diameter) allows a shallower spoke angle for stiffer wheels, especially beneficial in 29ers or for MTB wheels that are used in very demanding conditions. The Boost standard also offers greater tyre clearance in the fork.
