The eOne-Sixty is a hard-hitting enduro-ready eBike that has wowed the press worldwide and become the most decorated, tested and awarded bike in our 50-year history. E-Mountainbike gave it the 'BEST IN TEST' 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.

The eOne-Sixty is built around compact Shimano Steps motors, the Shimano design ethos is around natural riding, and the physical design of the motor allows our designers to create very short chainstays which deliver agile and “regular bike” geometry.

To give the e-full suspension bikes precise steering, fantastic ‘rolling over obstacles’ behaviour yet maximum traction, we have combined a 29er front wheel with a 2.5" tyre and a 650B rear wheel, equipped with a slightly wider 2.6" tyre. The perfect combination of precision, playfulness and traction allowing you to feel planted when tackling the most demanding of trails.

The carbon frame incorporates an internal block that prevents the bars turning and damaging the frame in the event of a tumble. The signature "Thermo Gate" vents at the top of the down tube allow heat to dissipate and maintain the temperature of the battery.

Shimano's e-Tube app allows you to tailor power delivery to suit your riding style, and even set two profiles, one for shredding and one for cruising.

Technology

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.

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.

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

NANO MATRIX CARBON

To protect the integrity of carbon frames, the fibres are bonded together with an epoxy resin with added nano particles, increasing impact resistance by up to 40%.

IMAGE

AWS

When creating the individual carbon elements, an inflatable bladder is used to ensure there are no wrinkles inside the tube as these can add weight and create weakness. This results in a lighter, stiffer and stronger frame.

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).

THERMO GATE

Specifically located openings near the head tube which work like a chimney and allow the warm air to dissipate to guarantee the optimum operating temperature of the internal battery. The Thermo Gate enables the battery to perform at its best, in any condition.

ENERGY GUARD

A two-component battery cover, which offers perfect protection for the internal battery. The softer (outer) layer reduces noises, seals the downtube perfectly and absorbs hits from trail debris easily, while the harder (inner) layer ensures that the battery does not get damaged and gives it the structural shape. All critical parts like the rubber strap and o-rings for perfect fitting can be replaced. 

IMAGE

INTERNAL BLOCK

First introduced in our 2015 Ninety-Six, the latest 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 layer of protection, there are added rubber bumpers on the frame to avoid any frame damage from the fork crown.
