Design meets heritage


The award winning 'original' eOne-Sixty was better received than any other bike in our history, renowned for its innovation, quality and outstanding performance. After three years at the top of the e-enduro ranking, we've distilled the essence of the 'old' eOne-Sixty to create an innovative new version. Goodbye and hello eOne-Sixty!

The eOne-Sixty is a high-end, state of the art e-bike. Materials, design and battery integration are cutting edge and Merida's usual attention to detail and quality are apparent, hence our lifetime frame warranty (limited to original owner;  rider and equipment weight up to 140kg).

The new eOne Sixty is perfect for e-enduro riding. Its engine will assist you to the top of the hill and it feels like a normal bike when descending the most demanding of trails.  It's very agile and great fun as a result of its perfectly tuned MTB geometry. 

The benefits of greater travel, bigger tyres and comfortable geometry mean it shines beyond enduro tracks, offering a fast, capable alternative to a regular mountain bike.

If a second battery or charging device is carried, it can be used for all day riding or multi-day excursions. 


Battery Cover

The precision engineered battery cover took twice as long to develop as the eBike itself!

Offering protection for the battery, the softer outer layer reduces noise, perfectly sealing the downtube and absorbing hits from stones whilst the harder inner layer ensures helps maintain its structural shape.

Crucial parts such as the rubber strap and o-rings can be replaced.

Thermo Gate

The Thermo Gate enables the battery to perform at its best, in any condition.

Carefully designed openings near the head tube work like a chimney, allowing warm air to dissipate,  guaranteeing the optimum operating temperature for the internal battery.

Merida Expert TR Axle

Through axle with removable axle lever. When inserted into the axle, the lever enables easy loosening and tightening. Once removed, it works as a 4 mm Alley key, perfect for tightening, the seat clamp or the stem bolt or removing the battery or activating the 'wake up button'. 

Hidden Kick-stand Mounts

The new eOne-Sixty frames have a hidden mounts for a kick-stand underneath the chain stay. 

Shimano Battery

Powerful internal lithium-ion battery that offers 630 Wh, charges up from 0-100% in 6 hours (when EC-E8004 charger is used) and retains at least 60% of its original battery capacity after 1,000 charging cycles.

The aluminium cased battery is extremely compact allowing us to seamlessly integrate it into the downtube for ample space for the rear shock with added water bottle fixing points and plenty of top tube clearance.

Its waterproof design is impact and vibration resistant.

Merida Expert eTR cockpit

The Expert eTR cockpit offers internal cable routing for the e-system cables through the handlebar and stem for a clean and fuss free look. The new eTRII stem also features secure attachment points for the Lezyne front light via its unique clamping plate.

EXPERT TR dropper seat post

The dropper seat post allows the rider to get the saddle out of the way when the gradient gets steeper, offering more space to manoeuvre and greater control over the bike.

Our 150 mm post fits perfectly into the seat tube of an M size frame; the L and XL frame can also accommodate a 170 mm dropper.

As all our e-bike parts, it has been tested and certified for a 140 kg system weight. 

Lezyne Front and Rear Lights

The 2021 eOne-Sixty features the new Lezyne Power Pro front and Femto rear light. The front light attaches securely to our stem clamp plate, keeping the light perfectly secure. It draws power from the main battery and can be easily operated from the Shimano display unit. The rear light is rechargeable (via a mini USP post), and capable of withstanding UK's weather. Both lights offer excellent visibility.

Shimano Shifter-R and Dropper Seat Post Lever

Compact, well-defined assist level shifter that helps to keep the cockpit clean and less cluttered, enabling easy access to the Shimano paddle style dropper seat post lever, fits neatly to the brake lever bracket positioned underneath the handlebars.



The entire eONE-SIXTY and eONE-FORTY range is powered by the latest EP801 or EP6 motors from Shimano. The EP801 unit delivers a maximum power output of 85 Nm, similar to its predecessor, the EP8, but the peak power of EP801 has increased from 500 W to 600 W, giving the motor more grunt in demanding riding situations. 

The EP6, the latest addition to the Shimano motor line-up, offers the same performance figures as the EP801 (85 Nm) but houses them in an aluminium motor housing rather than the magnesium version of the EP801. The peak power of the EP6 is the same as the outgoing EP8 at 500 W. While the output of the two motors is almost identical, the EP6 is approx. 300 g heavier than the top-of-the-line EP801.

Paired with the high-capacity 630 Wh battery from Shimano or Trendpowers 750 Wh power block, the EP801 and EP6 systems deliver an impressive range, making it easy to cruise for longer or do more runs. 

Further to that, both motors have seen upgrades in connectivity, making the unit more future-proof and ready for the latest shifting technology.



Dynamic and design are the primary influences that are the basis of the eONE-SIXTY.


DYNAMIC: In physics, ‘dynamic‘ describes the impact of forces producing motion onto a body. The bike is the body, while the trail is the impact of force that is trying to work against it.

DESIGN: The functional shaping of a body.

We achieved ‘dynamic’ by allocating the motion process of a functional surface in the underlying structure of the frame. A line in the frame that defines dynamic. To put the bike into motion without it actually moving. To radiate power without being confrontational. 

A strong and determined line leads the onlooker from the dropout to the head tube. The eye lingers at the THERMO GATE. A forged aluminium part that has been integrated seamlessly into the carbon frame. The milled rips are the visual highlight in the head tube area and underline the exclusivity of the eONE-SIXTY. On the upper part of the top tube, a switch has been accommodated perfectly, allowing the rider to activate the system with ease. It encourages the rider not to waste another second before setting the bike in motion.

The motor bracket wraps the heart of the frame while not taking up any more space than needed. The rear shock attachment point hovers almost weightlessly above it. To provide the bike with new energy, the well protected and easy to get to charging port is located at the joining point of the down and seat tube.
