Key Features
  • Lightweight CF4 full carbon frame with 100 mm of travel and P-FLEX suspension technology
  • Shimano's proven 12-speed XT drivetrain
  • Modern aggressive geometry with dropper seatpost
  • Fox Performance 32SC fork and Float suspension 
  • Fast rolling Maxxis tyres

This XC bike delivers top-level performance without blowing the budget, just like the privateer cross-country racers it's aimed at. The sweet spot between outright speed and excess spending? You got it. Delivering top-level performance but without top-level resources. That's where the Merida Ninety-Six RC XT Full Suspension XC Bike comes in with a race-ready package of a lightweight CF4 carbon frame married to components that hit that sweet spot between performance and cost. Shimano's benchmark 12-speed XT drivetrain needs no introduction, while Fox' proven 32SC fork and float shock with efficient dual remote-actuated lockout serve up their 100 mm of travel, providing comfort and control, lap after lap. The carbon fibre frame platform and P-FLEX suspension on the Merida Ninety-Six RC XT Full Suspension XC Bike are the perfect base for a fun-packed, fast, and trail-loving short-travel full suspension machine that helps define what a modern cross-country race bike should be. It's able to take on rougher than ever world-class race tracks as well as the trail riders who want hyper-speed climbing with the ability to descend like never before. For those that want a cross-country bike for race duties and high-performance training, the Ninety-Six RC XT delivers in spades.
