The ONE-SIXTY 700 gets all the cutting edge enduro performance of our radical new design but with a high-value and fully featured all-aluminium frame. That means hard-hitting modern geometry with our new FAST kinematic suspension that delivers a chaos taming ride alongside quality Marzocchi and Fox suspension. Shimano’s proven 12-speed Deore drivetrain means reliable shifts time after time, while four-piston brakes make short work of keeping everything under control.

Evolution or revolution? How about both? The 2022 ONE-SIXTY is a radical, all-new design that pushes our hard-hitting enduro platform to new heights. Just as well, because once it’s there it’s ready to rip the longest, toughest descents too. Our new suspension system uses a flexstay design with an adjustable rocker, so whether you choose to run it as a full 29er (162 mm travel) or mixed 29/27.5” setup (171 mm travel), the geometry is preserved. There’s a radically steep 79° seat tube angle for goat-like climbing and slack 64° head angle plus 170 mm fork to deal with downhill trail chaos. New sizing allows riders to run a longer or shorter reach frame independently of their height, while suspension becomes more progressive as you size up, all with long-travel dropper posts. Our WIRE PORT cable routing, reliable threaded bottom bracket plus on-board tool storage round out the package, while carbon frames also offer FidLock magnetic bottle cages.

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

IMAGE

PROLITE 66 TRIPLE BUTTED ALUMINUM

Our proven high-end aluminium (6066) is extremely light and durable. Using triple butted wall thicknesses and hydroforming technology, we can tune the aluminium tubes to give the best possible stiffness to weight ratio.

IMAGE

HFS - HYDRO FORMING SYSTEM

Tubes are inserted into negative moulds and a hot emulsion of water and oil is forced through at pressure, enabling them to be formed into complex shapes.

IMAGE

X-TAPER HEADTUBE

Our X-Tapered headtube offers the space for a tapered fork to be fitted. Tapered forks offer superb stiffness and precise and deliver confidence-inspiring steering.

X-TAPER HEADTUBE

SMOOTH WELDING

Sometimes called ‘double pass welding’, a second pass over the weld gives a clean organic look to the frame. At first glance, you will be convinced it is carbon.

IMAGE

INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.

IMAGE

NON-SLIP TIGHTENING

Selected bolts can be tightened just one side, without running the risk that the opposite side slips or turns, allowing faster and more straightforward tightening of important hardware components.

IMAGE

WIRE PORT

MERIDA designed headsets that allow all control cables to enter the frame through the headset, creating a clean and uncluttered look, without making structural changes to the frame. Depending on the model, the cables are run completely internally (including bar and stem) or semi-integrated where the cables enter the frame underneath the stem. 

IMAGE

FAST KINEMATIC

Flexstay rear suspension platform that has a specific suspension kinematic for each size, with longer reach models having increased progression to better suit harder and/or heavier riders. Adjustable chip to run full 29er or mixed wheels while preserving geometry. Flexstay-Adjustable-Size-Tuned kinematic: FAST, because it is.

IMAGE

LONG FENDER

The ONE-FORTY and ONE-SIXTY can run a sleekly integrated and removable full length rear fender which provides the rider excellent protection from dirt and water spray from the rear wheel. That's in addition to the standard fit short fender, which helps to protect the main pivot and cables, extending their lifespan.
