NINETY-SIX LITE FRAME
Lightweight triple butted and hydroformed 6066 aluminium with ‘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.
RACE LINK SUSPENSION
A single-pivot rear suspension system optimised for XC riding and 1x drivetrains. The super light (80 g) carbon rocker and linkage system offer a light, efficient rear end, totally eliminating pedal-bob. Perfect for going “full gas” out of the saddle as well as ironing out the rough stuff.
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.
TAPERED HEAD TUBE
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.
CARBON AND ALUMINIUM VERSIONS
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.
