Quick and capable on sweeping singletrack. The Merida Big Nine 500 is an XC hardtail mountain bike with rapid rolling 29” wheels and an efficient component spec.
The lightweight Techno Formed aluminium alloy frame features modern 29er XC geometry, with a longer top tube shorter stem and slacker head angle, that offers improved downhill stability while maintaining climbing prowess. The 29” wheels offer fast rolling performance over single track and rough terrain. The RockShox fork offers 100mm of smooth suspension travel to soak up the hits on the trail and features a lockout for efficiency on smoother surfaces.
The Shimano Deore 2×10 speed drivetrain offers reliable shifting with a wide gear range that is much easier to use than traditional triple chainset systems. The Shimano hydraulic disc brakes deliver confident, all-condition stopping power when the trail points downhill.
