OUR CLASSIC HARDTAIL – FAST, LIGHT, VERSATILE
The BIG.NINE/SEVEN range is the backbone of the MERIDA mountain bike line-up and one of the most technical products in our offering. At the top of our hardtail range stands the BIG.NINE TEAM, decorated with World Cup victories, European and World Championships and benefitting from the experience and knowledge of our racers, the BIG.NINE embodies modern hardtail mountain biking. Our top level CF5 frame weighs just 900 g, dropping below its predecessor’s weight while also improving on stiffness. Many of the latest technologies are incorporated to improve the BIG.NINE/SEVEN in other areas. Boost-Standard provides greater wheel stiffness. An aerodynamic downtube profile provides the potential for more speed. Super slim chain stays with an even lower profile and carefully shaped seat stays improve comfort. ‘Smart Entry’ technology keeps cables and hoses neat and rattle free.
But our BIG.NINE/SEVEN range consists of much more than our top level carbon race bikes. For 2018 the entry level BIG.NINE/SEVEN TFS frame gets a complete makeover.
The introduction of slim tube shapes creates a new look for the BIG.NINE/SEVEN TFS. A more relaxed geometry, achieved through a longer top tube and a higher head tube, offers a more upright riding position and enhanced trail visibility. The new frame also comes equipped with kickstand and fender mounts.
The new TFS frame has a lower stand-over-height and a long head tube. It also features a slack head angle and steeper seat angle for more control as well as a more ‘sitting within the bike’ riding position. The updated geometry also features longer reach for the perfect combination with short modern stems.
The new TFS frame is aimed at the beginner to advanced rider who prefers less demanding trails and forest roads. The bike invites the rider to also use it on the daily commute which will make the fixing points for a rear rack, mudguards and a kickstand a real plus.
