Quick and capable on technical singletrack. The Merida Big Nine 500 is a cross country hardtail mountain bike with nimble handling 27.5” wheels and an efficient component spec.
With its modern 650b XC geometry, the lightweight Techno Formed aluminium alloy frame features a longer top tube with a shorter stem and slacker head angle. This combines to offer a familiar cross country riding position but with improved stability on the descents and assured climbing efficiency. The 27.5” (650b) wheels offer the ideal compromise between rapid rolling efficiency and nimble handling characteristics. Up front 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 gives you reliable shifting over a wide gear range that is much easier to use than a traditional triple ring setup. The Shimano hydraulic disc brakes deliver confident all-condition stopping power when gravity takes over.
Ride further and faster on the Merida Big Seven 500.
