eOne-Sixty

Aluminium

VIEW ALL BIKES

The award winning 'original' eOne-Sixty was better received than any other bike in our history, renowned for its innovation, quality and outstanding performance. 2019 saw the launch of the new carbon eOne-Sixty with its integrated battery. The cutting edge design plus our renowned attention to detail, made the eOne-Sixty an immediate hit the world over. Now we bring you the all aluminium version of the popular eOne-Sixty. Staying true to the carbon eOne-Sixty we have kept many of the same features.

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).

PURPOSE

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. 

KEY COMPONENTS

Smart Entry

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

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.

Rear Triangle

Both the aluminium and carbon eOne-Sixty share the same rear triangle made from aluminium. It is also one of the strongest rear ends Merida has ever made, and we know that it has fantastic durability and stiffness characteristics.

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. 

Merida Custom On/Off Switch

The Merida Custom On/Off Switch is located on the lower part of the downtube. Here the switch can be easily reached to turn the system on or off while being out of harm’s way.

Satellite Charging Port & Switch

The on/off switch as well as the battery charger port are positioned for easy accessibility. The on/off switch is set into the top tube just behind the head tube, allowing the rider to activate the system with ease (available on all models except 500 and 300 S). The satellite charging port can be found above the motor at the down tube/seat tube junction, perfectly protected yet super easy to get to. 

Merida Mini Toolbox

Connected to the saddle’s faceplate is the Merida mini toolbox. The included mini tool features 2/2.5/3/8 mm Allen keys, a flathead and Phillips head screwdriver and 10/25/30 Torx keys. Perfect for fixing most issues trailside.

Shimano Battery

Powerful internal lithium-ion battery that offers 630 Wh (except the eONE-SIXTY 300 S model which features the 504 Wh internal battery), 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, added water bottle fixing points and plenty of top tube clearance. It has a waterproof design and is impact and vibration resistant. 

Chainstay Protector

It was important to us that our eOne-Sixty is as quiet as possible, and that it stays that way even after long term use. Besides the battery cover that reduces noise and protects the battery, we have also put a lot development into the chainstay protector. The dragon inspired protector is much bigger and is covering almost the complete chainstay, helping to reduce noise from a moving chain or trail debris hitting the frame. 

Lezyne Front and USB Rear Lights

The 2021 eOne-Sixty features the new Lezyne Power Pro front and USB rechargeable rear light. The front light attached securely to our stem clamp plate, keeping the light perfectly fixed to the bike without cluttering the cockpit area. It draws its 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 perfectly capable of withstanding even the wettest of outings. Both lights offer excellent visibility during the day as well as evening and dawn rides.

Hidden Kick-Stand Mounting Points

The new eOne-Sixty frames offer hidden attachment points for a kick-stand underneath the chain stay.

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 clutter free look. The new eTRII stem also features secure attachment points for the Lezyne front light via its unique clamping plate. As all our e-bike specific parts, the eTR cockpit is tested for a 140 kg system weight. 

RIDE THE REVOLUTION

SHIMANO EP8 DRIVE UNIT

For 2021, the entire all-aluminium eONE-SIXTY range (except the eONE-SIXTY 300 S model) will be powered by the new EP8 motor from Shimano. The new power unit brings a long list of upgrades and changes to the table that will elevate our eONE-SIXTY to the next level. The EP8 delivers a maximum power output of 85 Nm, which is an increase of 15 Nm from the E8000 unit. This will improve the performance on extreme terrain as well as lift up the other support levels, making them universally more cable and more fun to use. Paired with the new 630 Wh battery, the new EP8 system delivers a huge range extension, making it easier to cruise for longer or do more runs. 

Further to that, the new power unit has lost approx. 300 g in weight, has further improved its heat-resistance, allowing the rider to go harder for longer, has become quieter and smaller and has managed to achieve a 36% reduction in drag, making cruising about the cut-out speed even easier. All this helps to deliver smooth, direct power to ensure that the rider is always in complete control while experiencing a natural ride feel.
