The new Merida Big Nine 80 builds on the Big Nine 60 and adds the new Shimano Deore 12-speed groupset creating a capable 29er with a sophisticated TFS frame, Rock Shox Judy fork and complete Shimano drivetrain, hubs and powerful hydraulic brakes.
This model is also a UK exclusive, one of the best things about Merida is that despite being one of the biggest bike manufacturers on the planet they're agile and listen to market feedback.
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.
INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING
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.
DOWN TUBE EXIT
Ensures that internally routed cables and wires can’t move freely and remain easily accessible for servicing.
TFS - TECHNO FORMING SYSTEM
Technoforming is a mechanical forming process, shaping the tubes by using negative moulds, at times combined with internal metalcore.
RACE LITE 61 ALUMINIUM
Merida uses a minimum of 6061 aluminium. The payback is that it’s possible to make lighter and more advanced frames by using additional heat treatment and double-butted wall thicknesses to produce light and stiff frames.
