eOne-Sixty

Design Meets Heritage

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. 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).

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

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.

RIDE THE REVOLUTION

SHIMANO EP8 DRIVE UNIT

For 2021, the entire eONE-SIXTY carbon range 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.
