The Merida Big Nine XT is a race-proven hardtail mountain bike designed to be on the podium every time. It's a real hard hitter thanks to its CF3 carbon frame which absorbs vibrations for a smoother, more comfortable ride and its lightweight, stiff frame ensures compliance as you race around the track. While the modern racing geometry of the Big Nine XT is agressive so you can chase the best line on varied terrain first time, every time! Featuring a long reach, steep 73.5 seat angle and slack 70 head angle for aggressive agility with a good dose of stability this is a bike you can power up climbs on and through twisty technical sections with ease and then descend through through loose aggressive terrain with issue. With the bulletproof 1x12 Speed Shimano XT Drivetrain equipped as standard, you'll be more than capable of crunching through hard climbs thanks to its smooth efficiency and clean gear changes, while the wide range ensures you can shred down the mountain. Naturally, Merida has selected the 'Gold Standard' single chainring setup for minimum hassle and maintenance when you're properly in the zone.
The Big Nine XT comes equipped with the latest RockShox Reba Fork (51mm offset) with remote lockout and 100mm of travel for a smooth and agile ride. With such a clean cockpit you've got enough room to add a dropper post to the Merida Big Nine XT Mountain bike thanks to the frame coming equipped with dropper post ready internal cable mounting options. Of course, it wouldn't be the Big Nine without agile 29" Merida Expert CC Wheels and Maxxis Ikon 2.2" Tyres all round for the ultimate cross-country experience. While you can ride with confidence, hitting every descent or turn hard thanks to the upgraded and reliable 2 Piston Shimano XT Hydraulic Disc Brakes and big 180mm Shimano RT54 rotor up front which give you unparalleled control in all conditions. The Merida Big Nine XT Mountain Bike is a lightweight and compliant hardtail racer offering cross-country versatility for endless fun!
