MERIDA 247’5 PLUS
When we begin to raise the Big Trail project, we knew that our main objective should be to create a rigid bike with a very strong component of fun. This is the reason why its geometry and specifications are so different from a conventional rigid. The 130mm fork and geometry give a more enduro approach to the BIG posesionando. TRAIL closer to full suspension bikes than traditional XC. Another advantage of this new family in MERIDA is its simplicity and therefore reliability and durability, which is very evident in the design of the box. It brings fun geometry, combined with the specifications of each model will be of particular interest to all those looking for a bike with little maintenance and able to perform at their best on all paths. The idea of reintroducing a more focused rigid to decreases was something that haunted the head of all the R & D for years and now with the introduction of new PLUS believe it was time. More traction and more security are sufficient reasons to develop new BIG.TRAIL on the new standard PLUS, which ends up closer to the BIG.TRAIL more to her sisters double the XC suspension.
PURPOSE The purpose of our BIG.TRAIL is obvious. Enjoy the trails. It will be able to keep pace with the doubles and will take advantage of its geometry and its lighter frame in any double.
Of all bike trail a picture is expected very low to allow move freely. To achieve this configuration is hydroformed top tube.
GUIDED INTERNAL CABLES
+ Samrt Entry
+ Technology Down Tube Exit (same system used on full-suspension bikes)
STANDARD BOOST 12X148 on the rear wheel
30.9 mm diameter seat post, more reliable and compatible with telescopic seatposts.
BB92 bottom bracket
Rear Brake Post Mount / 180 mm rotor
Maximum wheel size: 27’5X2,8 ”
GEOMETRY: Our BIG.TRAIL is characterized as more like a full suspension bike that rigid. The steering angle is 67’5º, a very aggressive configuration taking into account the size of the wheels PLUS. As for the pods, we have achieved an extremely short length of only 427’5mm and to improve control of the bike all models and sizes mounted 35mm powers, following the trend of modern geometry.
