Faster cross country riding. The Merida Big Seven 7000 is a race ready carbon hardtail mountain bike for confident riding on challenging XC terrain.
The lightweight carbon composite frame offers compliance, for a smooth ride, alongside stiffness for efficient power transfer and confident handling. The modern 650b (27.5”) XC MTB geometry features a longer top tube with shorter stem and slacker head angle. This offers improved confidence on technical terrain, especially on the descents, while still offering capable and efficient climbing performance. The 27.5” (650b) wheels offer the ideal compromise between rapid rolling efficiency and nimble handling characteristics.
The winningest fork in XC MTB history, the RockShox SID offers 100mm of plush suspension control in a lightweight package. The full Shimano XT groupset delivers slick shifting and confident braking control so you can focus on the ride.
