Fantastic review and test win for Big Trail 500 in MBUK

The Big Trail 500 got included in the latest trail hardtail test in the June issue of MBUK and walked away with a fantastic 4.5 out of 5 stars and a well-deserved test win.

The test team were immensely impressed with the ‘bang on’ geometry which provides 'impressive downhill capability', gives the bike ‘calm handling’ and ‘inspired confidence’ and also makes it a ‘comfortable climber’.  

‘Overall, the Big Trail has to be one of the most capable, fun to ride and impressive bikes for this kind of money…An immensely capable bike across a huge range of trail types for not much cash in the grand scheme of things. On Steeper or gnarlier descents, the Merida rides similarly to a short-travel trail bike...’
