MR. BIG / CROSS COUNTRY
MTB / MR. BIG
GRAND MASTER OF SPEED
Home trail or race track – it makes no difference to you. Speed is your lifeblood. When narrowing your eyes to focus on the trail and when the forest is rushing past, you’re right in your element. You don’t compromise – neither on the material, nor on riding qualities or performance. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, that’s why you care so much about details. The MR. BIG is exactly your bike. An excellent carbon frame forms the basis; despite a featherweight of about 1200 grams, it is very stiff and robust. What’s more, it's finishing and design are in a class of their own. Your riding pos- ition is sporty and stretched, a short head tube and a long reach allow for the ideal racing position. Top-level components guarantee precision, 29” wheels push your speed while also providing grip and outstanding roll-over behaviour. You’re waiting for the race. You’re ready. You’re at the starting line. You’re MR. BIG.
MR. BIG – a passionate speeder
It is uncompromising, simple and feels at home on the race tracks of the world: the MR. BIG 1. With its 29” wheels, it rolls on as fast as lighting and is just waiting to ride off. The Rock Shox Reba RL Solo Air seems to be tailor-made for this potent race bike: It features a 15 mm thru axle, sophisticated technology and a robust and lightweight design. With a travel of 100 mm, it is perfectly suitable for fast trails and it also offers diverse adjustment options. You can set up and adjust the air pressure, rebound and compression damping (up to a complete lockout), which allows you to individually adapt it to your requirements. This makes the fork a precise and reliable tool for demanding tracks. Besides, the MR. BIG 1 features some excellent tyres. Schwalbe’s Racing Ralph Evo tyres in the Snakeskin version are especially resistant to punctures and offer a lot of grip and comfort thanks to a width of 2,25 inches! The MountainBIKE magazine gives the bike a “VERY GOOD” and writes in the issue 03/2015: “Verdict: "Are you looking for a 29er hardtail, which boosts sporting ambitions and promises a safe ride, too? No problem, here comes ROSE's Mr. Big.“
It is one of the fastest and most powerful bikes ROSE has to offer: the MR. BIG 2. The frame: lightweight, made of carbon and of high quality. The components: reliable, durable and with top features. At the front, the DT Swiss OPM ODL suspension fork cuts a fine figure. Apart from the eponymous, lightweight and yet torsion-resistant lower fork tubes made of cast magnesium (One Piece Mag), the fork features the Open Lock damping system. The suspension element can be adjusted to the desired sensitivity with a flick of the wrist – ranging from ultra-sensitive through to rock-hard. The proven and excellent XT series is responsible for best acceleration. The rear derailleur features the Shadow Plus technology where the cage plate hides behind the frame. In this way, it is well protected and its owner can fully enjoy the crisp and precise shifting processes for a long time! Reliable Shimano XT brakes with 180 mm and 160 mm discs make sure you can also slow down safely.
