FAST, RELIABLE AND UNCOMPROMISING
Our classic 29er hardtail ÛÒ available in carbon and aluminium. The BIG.NINE with its racing geometry is an ideal companion on XC and marathon race tracks while the more relaxed geometry of the BIG.NINE TFS and SPEED offers a more comfortable, upright riding position for slightly more relaxed trail adventures.
KEY PERFORMANCE FACTORS:
Û¢ RACELITE 61 ALUMINIUM: We use a minimum of 6061 aluminium. The payback is that itÛªs possible to make lighter and more advanced frames. We use an additional heat treatment and double-butted wall thicknesses to produce light and stiff frames.
Û¢ TFS-TECHNO FORMING SYSTEM: Technoforming is a mechanical forming process, shaping the tubes by using negative moulds, at times combined with an internal metal core.
Û¢ 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.
Û¢ SMOOTH WELDING: Sometimes called Û÷double pass weldingÛª, a second pass over the weld gives a clean organic look to the frame. At first glance, you will be convinced it is carbon.
Û¢ INTERNAL CABLE: 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.
Û¢ DOWN TUBE EXIT: Ensures that internally routed cables and wires can move freely without causing any trouble whilst remaining easily accessible for servicing.
Û¢ C-S POST MOUNT DISC: Post mount disc brake calipers fit directly onto the seat stay for a strong and light connection whilst a chainstay post mount positions the caliper on the chainstay within the rear triangle for extra protection and better distribution of braking forces. Another benefit is that internal cable routing is also easier and neater via the chainstay.
Û¢ F-MOUNT: "F-Mount" equipped bikes have integrated fittings for mudguards (some bikes require model specific mudguards), making fitting fast and simple.
Û¢ K-MOUNT DROP-OUT: Integrated mount on the chainstay to fit a MERIDA kickstand.
Û¢ C-MOUNT: "C-Mount" equipped bikes have the fixing points for a rear rack already integrated (some bikes require model specific rear rack), making fitting fast, simple and reliable.
Û¢ LOCK-OUT: The suspension fork and/or rear shock can be locked, either directly or via a Û÷remote controlÛª lever on the handlebar.
