XC race ready. The Merida Big Nine XT is carbon framed hardtail mountain bike for rapid single track adventures and cross-country racing.
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.
Offering 100mm of plush suspension control is the Fox 32 Float Performance fork which features adjustable compression and rebound damping so you can adapt the performance to the trail. The Shimano XT 2×11 speed drivetrain offers slick shifting performance over a very wide range of gears so you can take on challenging terrain. The XT brakes deliver confident stopping control.
