Confident XC adventures. The Merida Big Seven 800 is a hardtail mountain bike, with nimble handling 27.5” (650B) wheels, for cross country riding and racing.
With its modern 650b XC geometry, the lightweight, double butted and heat treated, 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. The lightweight Manitou Marvel Comp fork offers 100mm of smooth suspension travel to soak up the hits on the trail and features a lockout for efficient riding on smoother tracks.
Offering a very wide range of gears is the slick shifting Shimano SLX 2×11 speed drivetrain which allows you to take on all the varied terrain on your route with maximum efficiency. The Shimano SLX hydraulic disc brakes offer confident all-weather stopping power.
