Similar to our XT-EDITION, the SLX-EDITION combines some of Shimano’s most desirable and proven drivetrain components with almost 50 years of MERIDA’s design and production expertise. Our double butted aluminium frameset does is boosted by a super smooth 12 gear setup and also offers well-controlled suspension action from the Manitou Markhor fork and all-weather stopping ability courtesy of Shimano’s hydraulic disc brake setup.
Mountain biking is one of the most varied cycling disciplines and probably the most demanding when it comes to equipment. While full suspension bikes offer amazing riding characteristics, the classic hardtail remains one of the purest tools for the job. Our 29er wheel equipped BIG.NINE range comes in carbon and aluminium and features multiple geometry options. The carbon and LITE framed BIG.NINE, with its racing geometry, is an ideal companion on XC and marathon race tracks whilst the more relaxed geometry of the BIG.NINE TFS and SPEED offers a more comfortable, upright riding position. Our classic hardtails are the backbone of our range and showcase the enormous wealth of experience and knowledge we could gain in almost half a century of bike production and manufacturing. The BIG.NINE range symbolises the symbiosis between modern frame technology, attention to detail and craftsmanship ‘Made in Taiwan’.
