    "The eONE-SIXTY has seamlessly followed in the footsteps of the 'original' eONE-SIXTY in becoming the most decorated, tested and awarded bike in MERIDA's history. This highly anticipated bike managed to collect a vast amount of amazing test results and wins, as well as a few more industry awards to its tally. E-Mountainbike gave it the 'BEST IN TEST' approval in their 'Best of 2021' eMTB group test, World of MTB also gave it their 'Best of 2021' award and FREERIDE gave the 9000 the almost perfect score of 9.5 out of ten, just to mention a few. For 2022, our all-aluminium e-enduro bike will be equipped with the proven EP8 motor from Shimano as well as with the range extending 630 Wh or 750 Wh (model specific) internal battery. A perfectly tuned MTB geometry, paired with a tough all-aluminium frame, seamlessly integrated battery and a 29er/27.5"" wheel combo that delivers poise and confidence on the toughest trails, the eONE-SIXTY is ready for anything you can throw at it."

    To reduce production and delivery times, we are sometimes forced to make last-minute specification changes. Please be aware that those changes might not be reflected on these product pages and images.

    Technologies

    IMAGE

    HFS - HYDRO FORMING SYSTEM

    Tubes are inserted into negative moulds and a hot emulsion of water and oil is forced through at pressure, enabling them to be formed into complex shapes.

    IMAGE

    X-TAPER HEADTUBE

    Our X-Tapered headtube offers the space for a tapered fork to be fitted. Tapered forks offer superb stiffness and precise and deliver confidence-inspiring steering.

    SMOOTH WELDING

    Sometimes called ‘double pass welding’, a second pass over the weld gives a clean organic look to the frame. At first glance, you will be convinced it is carbon.

    IMAGE

    INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

    Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.

    IMAGE

    SMART ENTRY

    Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling when the trails or roads get rough. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.

    IMAGE

    DI2 READY

    Bikes/frames with the symbol ‘Di2 Ready’ are prepared for the installation of Di2 technology with battery mounting in the seat post or within the fork steerer.

    IMAGE

    RACELITE 61 ALUMINIUM

    We use a minimum of 6061 aluminium. The pay back is that it’s possible to make lighter and more advanced frames. We use an additional heat treatment and double-butted wall thicknesses to produce light and stiff frames.

    K-MOUNT

    Integrated mount on the chainstay to fit a MERIDA kickstand (or any commercial kickstand).

    K-MOUNT
    IMAGE

    CASTING MOTOR BRACKET

    Sophisticated shape only possible due to casting technology, creating an integrated appearance as well as an extremely strong connection between the E-bike motor and frame for improved performance and reliability.

    IMAGE

    INTERNAL BLOCK

    First introduced in our 2015 NINETY-SIX, the new version of the 'Internal Block' is incorporated directly in the frame and prevents the fork crown from hitting the frame in case of a crash or an extreme steering angle. As an extra protection, there are additional rubber bumpers on the frame to avoid any frame damage from the fork crown.

    IMAGE

    ENERGY GUARD TWIST

    Twist lock mechanism that is located at the top end of the 'Energy Guard' battery cover, for easy locking and unlocking of the protective internal battery cover.
