They say it’s the quiet ones you need to watch. That’s definitely the case with the eONE-SIXTY 9000. It doesn’t need to shout to prove it can walk the walk, with kit that serves up the perfect blend of top-level performance tempered with value. Fox’s Performance suspension with 38 fork and DPX2 shock make light work of anything the trail can throw at you. The new Shimano LinkGlide drivetrain is a durability benchmark. Add in the powerful Shimano EP8 motor and high-capacity 630 Wh battery and you’ll be ready to shred over and over - and over - again.

The eONE-SIXTY has seamlessly followed in the footsteps of the 'original' eONE-SIXTY in becoming the most decorated, tested and awarded bike in MERIDA's history. This highly anticipated bike managed to collect a vast amount of amazing test results and wins, as well as a few more industry awards to its tally. E-Mountainbike gave it the 'BEST IN TEST' approval 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. For 2022, our carbon e-enduro bike will be equipped with the proven EP8 motor from Shimano as well as with the range extending 630 Wh internal battery. A perfectly tuned MTB geometry, paired with a stiff and lightweight carbon front triangle and tough aluminium rear, seamlessly integrated battery and a mixed wheel size combo that delivers poise and confidence on the toughest trails, the eONE-SIXTY is ready for anything you can throw at it.

To reduce production and delivery times, we are sometimes forced to make last-minute specification changes. Please be aware that those changes might not be reflected on these product pages and images.

Technologies

HFS - HYDRO FORMING SYSTEM

To get the most out of an aluminium tube in terms of shape or varying wall thickness, we apply various forms of manipulation. The most complex but also the most effective is hydroforming, where an aluminium tube is inserted into a negative mould, and a hot emulsion of water and oil is forced through at pressure. The end result is a perfectly shaped aluminium tube that enables us to create beautifully crafted and lightweight aluminium frames.

IMAGE

X-TAPER HEADTUBE

Steering precision is vital to safe and confident handling, and the X-TAPER HEADTUBE allows us to significantly boost this precision. A larger headset diameter at the bottom paired with a smaller one at the top helps to deal with the strains modern riding and equipment can put on the headtube, all without adding unnecessary weight. It allows tapered forks to be fitted with ease and delivers precise and confidence-inspiring steering.

IMAGE

SMOOTH WELDING

This is a process we use to give a nice flat finish to our welds instead of the scaled, 'stack of coins' effect TIG welded joints often have. The welder uses the welding torch to go over the joint twice, helping to smooth out the filler material. It takes a lot of skill to do this, but it delivers strong and smart-looking frames that have the appearance of a carbon fibre frame at first look.

IMAGE

INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

On the majority of our frames, we run the gear and brake cables and hoses through the frame. The cables enter and exit the frame through smooth sockets, or we use one of our other systems like SMART ENTRY or WIRE PORT to be routed through. Running the cables inside the frame protects them from the elements, gives a clean and neat look and can offer aerodynamic advantages.

IMAGE

DI2 READY

Shimano's Di2 electronic shifting system offers fast, smooth and reliable shifting. In particular, in the road world, it has proven itself as the primary choice when top performance is at the top of the agenda. With that in mind, we have a broad selection of performance road frames that are Di2 READY and can accommodate the electrical cable, battery and other little tweaks that the system requires.

IMAGE

NANO MATRIX CARBON

NANO MATRIX CARBON is a special kind of carbon fibre where we add extremely tiny, nano-scale particles to the resin that binds the individual carbon fibres together. These then work on a molecular level to protect them from damage. It’s so effective that it can actually increase the finished carbon fibre’s impact resistance by up to 40%, allowing us to build stronger and lighter composite frames that result in a faster and tougher bike.

IMAGE

AWS ANTI WRINKLE SYSTEM

This is a method we use to manufacture our carbon fibre frames. First, the carbon fibre that makes up the frame is laid around special formers. We then use a bladder to compress the layers against the outside of the frame mould, giving a smooth and wrinkle-free internal finish, removing any voids in between the layers of carbon that can cause potential weak points, resulting in a stronger, lighter frame.

IMAGE

RACELITE 61 ALUMINIUM

We use a minimum of 6061 grade aluminium on all our bikes. It’s particularly well suited to being shaped with our hydroforming and technoforming processes, which allow us to vary the wall thickness to create double-butted tubing and complex frame shapes. It’s also an alloy that welds easily, and once it has been carefully heat treated to maximise strength, it means we can create strong and lightweight bicycle frames for you to enjoy.

IMAGE

K-MOUNT

When using your bike in an urban environment, where you might not always have the option to use a specific bike stand, a kickstand is an ideal solution to park your bike safely. Some of our bikes come with a neatly integrated K-MOUNT, which makes fitting a MERIDA kickstand (or any commercial kickstand) easy. And if you don’t want to have a kickstand and prefer the clean appearance of your frame, the K-MOUNT is neatly tucked away underneath your chainstay, difficult to spot if you don’t know it is there.

IMAGE

THERMO GATE

Heat is generated by your e-bike battery when it is being used, but too much heat can reduce the efficiency and lifespan of the battery cells. THERMO GATE is a feature seen on our carbon fibre framed e-mountain bike ranges and while it looks like an air intake, it's designed to work like a chimney, allowing hot air to escape as it rises upwards, keeping your battery cooler and working at its best for longer. This is not needed on aluminium frames as the frame material helps to dissipate the heat.

IMAGE

ENERGY GUARD

A two-component battery cover, which offers excellent protection for the internal battery. The softer (outer) layer reduces noises, seals the downtube to keep out dirt and water 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, such as the rubber strap and o-rings, can be replaced as needed.

IMAGE

INTERNAL BLOCK

The INTERNAL BLOCK SYSTEM limits the amount of steering lock that can be applied in either direction, preventing the fork crown from hitting the frame downtube and causing damage in a crash. It does this by having a tab mounted in the frame that, along with a special adaptor on the fork, limits the steering lock in either direction. This is backed up by rubber bumpers on the frame itself, keeping both frame and fork safe.
