The Merida Ninety-Six RC 10k Mountain Bike is the absolute top-of-the-range race-oriented XC dual suspension bike designed with absolute speed and performance in mind, the frame features a fast and aggressive geometry targeted at those wanting to save every second possible. With modern XC racecourses becoming more demanding, Merida has designed this bike with the speed and agility of an XC bike, but with the trail-ability of a trail bike, making it much more downhill-capable. Combining multiple top-of-the-line features such as a 120mm FOX 34 Float SC Factory fork and the FOX Float DPS Factory shock to take whatever you throw at it, Maxxis Rekon Race tyres for the perfect speed/grip combo, lightweight and strong Reynolds Blacklabel carbon wheelset for speed and reduced weight, and a powerful Shimano XTR hydraulic disc brake set so you can ride with confidence knowing you can stop no matter how fast you're flying. The Ninety-Six RC 10K has a progression leverage ratio that is higher at the beginning to increase sensitivity to small impacts while the progression gives awesome support in the mid-travel. The slacker head angle, longer reach, and a lower bottom bracket and standover height on the Ninety-Six RC 10K provide increased stability and maximum room to move for added control when descending, making this XC bike a force to be reckoned with on the downhill trails, giving you those precious extra seconds.
The Ninety-Six RC 10K features a frame made from lightweight CF4 carbon using Merida's Nano Matrix Carbon to improve strength and is combined with a leaf-spring-like frame design. Through this, Merida has eliminated the need for a seat/chainstay pivot point to reduce weight and increase stiffness, making the handling of this bike a dream. The included Fox Transfer SL dropper post allows you to get your seat out of the way with a push of a lever so you have maximum room to move while descending. Adding to the amazing features, the Merida Ninety-Six RC 10K offers a SRAM Eagle 1x12 groupset, featuring a SRAM XG-1299 Eagle 10-52t cassette at the rear to give you good climbing and descending with crisp, shifting you can always depend on, while the front offers the 34t SRAM XX1 Eagle chainwheel with an integrated power meter so you can get those important metrics to make sure you're at the top of your game.
Nano Matrix Carbon
To give you the strongest and best Carbon frames, Merida utilises Nano Matrix technology. The Carbon fibers are bonded together using an epoxy resin with added nano particles which increases the impact resistance by up to 40%!
FoX 34 Float SC Factory Suspension
The Fox 34 Float SC Factory is jam-packed with features and top-end technology, made to exceed the demands of FOX's factory-level riders. Featuring the buttery smooth, ultra-durable Genuine Kashima Coat, and the GRIP2 damper, these forks offer unparalleled ride quality and ultra-precise adjustability. These forks really are the best of the best!
Merida's proprietary P-Flex technology, uses the inherent compliance of the carbon and a leaf-spring-like frame design, to allow the frame to flex near the seat and chainstay junction enough to make the pivot point obsolete, all without impacting durability. This gives you a lighter bike and increased stiffness for a better ride.
