29er wheels offer fantastic ‘roll over’ ability and keep their speed well, so they are perfect for your next mountain bike outing. We pair our double butted aluminium frame with Manitou’s Markhor air suspension fork and a 2 by 11-speed Shimano drivetrain for the perfect combination of comfort, control and versatility. The slightly more upright riding position in comparison to our more racy models puts less strain on the lower back and also improves the visibility of what lies ahead.
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’.
