Lightweight, fast and capable. The Merida Big Nine 4000 is a carbon XC hardtail mountain bike for rapid cross country riding and racing.
The lightweight carbon composite frame offers compliance, for a smooth ride, alongside stiffness for efficient power transfer and confident handling. The modern 29er 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. 29” wheels offer fast rolling performance over single track and rough terrain.
The RockShox Recon Silver RL fork offers 100mm of plush suspension travel to tame the trail. The Shimano SLX 2×11 speed drivetrain offers slick shifting over a very wide range of gears so you can take on all the varied terrain on your route with maximum speed and efficiency. The Shimano SLX hydraulic disc brakes offer confident all-weather stopping power.
