The eONE-SIXTY is the most decorated, tested and awarded bike in Merida’s history and has shaped what Merida is known for today: innovation, quality and outstanding performance. However, after three years at the top of the e-enduro ranking, it was time to distil the essence of the 'old' eONE-SIXTY and incorporate the very latest trends and standards.
The new eONE-SIXTY once again embodies e-enduro bikes, on downhills it still feels like a normal bike, agile and playful due to its perfectly tuned MTB geometry. A stiff and lightweight frame seamlessly integrates the battery into the lower part of the downtube, while the casting motor bracket creates an integrated appearance of the motor as well as an extremely strong connection with the frame. The modern 29er up front and 27.5 at the rear wheel setup gives the eONE-SIXTY precise steering, maximum traction and fantastic behaviour when rolling over obstacles.
Geometry, travel and specification all make this bike perfect for demanding trail riding. It doesn’t matter if it’s a playful easy trail or a hardcore enduro track. The new eONE-SIXTY loves it all. But besides its enduro and trail riding abilities, the eONE-SIXTY is also a hugely capable and enjoyable ‘SUV' bike. Because of the travel, the comfortable and upright riding position the eONE-SIXTY gives a lot of confidence and offers a real alternative to a ‘normal’ mountain bike. If a 2nd battery or charging device is carried, it can also be used for all day riding or multi-day excursions.
