Big Nine 15 Description

Merida's heartland has always been bombproof aluminium hardtails and their entry-level 29er is no exception, it uses a sophisticated TFS frame with the latest technology, full internal cable routing, tapered headtube and inboard disc brake mounts.

There's no point making a bombproof frame and then hanging poor components on it. Despite the entry price point, Merida has loaded the Big Nine 15 with as much Shimano componentry as they can due to its reliability.


Sometimes called ‘double pass welding’, a second pass over the weld gives a clean organic look to the frame. At first glance, you will be convinced it is carbon.


Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.


Merida's X-Tapered headtube offers the space for a tapered fork to be fitted. Tapered forks offer superb stiffness and precise and deliver confidence-inspiring steering.


Ensures that internally routed cables and wires can’t move freely and remain easily accessible for servicing.


Technoforming is a mechanical forming process, shaping the tubes by using negative moulds, at times combined with internal metalcore.


Merida uses a minimum of 6061 aluminium. The payback is that it’s possible to make lighter and more advanced frames buy using additional heat treatment and double-butted wall thicknesses to produce light and stiff frames.
