The Merida Ninety Six RC 9000 Mountain Bike is back better than ever in 2021, ready to meet the needs of the modern XC racer who wants to ride at their best. Merida have made big changes to this model this year with a completely new CF5 III Carbon Frame which is sleeker than previous model, built for the ultimate combination of durability and speed. The updated geometry is designed with modern riding preferences in mind, built with a slacker head angle and steeper seat angle to pair with a longer wheelbase and reach.
The FOX Factory 32 Float Fork with 100mm travel is matched with a Fox Factory Float Rear Shock also with 100mm of travel. This is a more progressive suspension setup than previous models, featuring a cable lockout which is hidden from view through the top tube.
The RC 9000 model is equipped with a 1x12 speed Shimano XTR Drivetrain for clean shifting and reliable performance when it counts. The 2 piston Shimano XTR Hydraulic Disc Brakes will give you capable control when you’re rolling on the carbon DT Swiss XR1501 wheels with 29X2.25” Maxxis Rekon Race Tyres, capable of fitting tyres up to 2.3”. It wouldn’t be ready for serious speed without a dropper post and the Fox Transfer Dropper Post ensures this bike comes with everything you need.
The Merida Ninety Six RC 9000 is a high-quality lightweight racing bike that packs a carbon frame 100mm of travel, two piston hydro disc brakes and fast rolling XC tyres for an efficient ride that is ready to tear it up.
