XC / MARATHON
XC & MARATHON FOCUS
Our race proven cross country and marathon full suspension bike. 100 mm of fully active yet totally bob free rear end travel for ‘full gas’ riding and racing. A versatile super lightweight race machine fully capable of participating in fast trail riding when the opportunity arises. Single chain ring, optimised suspension and dropper post ready.
RACE READY MEETS TRAIL PERFORMANCE
Closely related to our race, test and award-winning ONE-TWENTY, but with subtle differences that sets it apart from the big brother. The super-stiff chassis, the explosive acceleration, the proven and hugely efficient 'Float Link' rear suspension setup and the sporty, yet comfortable seating position of the 120 mm ONE-TWENTY inspired us to create a bike that has similar character trades but an extra dose of the racing gene – the ONE-TWENTY RC – the ideal bike for riders who want a more comfortable seating position and more trail panache than the NINETY-SIX, but don't need the extra travel of the 'original' ONE-TWENTY.
THE GREAT ALL–ROUNDER – RACE AND TEST PROVEN
Completely redesigned for the 2019 season, our 'do it all' bike, the ONE-TWENTY has taken the international cycling press by storm and also managed to add the Design & Innovation award to its trophy cabinet. Riders and the press alike appreciated the versatility of our mid travel bike, the hugely efficient rear suspension configuration and the sheer unstoppable trail munching capabilities. While very much a trail bike at heart, the modern, yet balanced, trail bike geometry, paired with fantastic frame stiffness created a mid-travel bike that is super capable on rough trails but also carries speed perfectly on less technically demanding tracks.
ALL MOUNTAIN AND TRAIL FUN
Introduced in 2018 and an instant winner with trail riders and the international cycling press alike. Our 140mm trail machine was called a bike ‘with great pedalling efficiency, brilliant suspension and top fun handling’ (MBR), a ‘bloody hoot to ride’ (FLOW), a bike that ‘eagerly surges forward’ (IMB) and ‘one of the best mid-travel bikes we have ridden’ (MBUK). The super supple and active suspension system paired with great pedalling efficiency makes the ONE-FORTY the perfect trail bike for long demanding days in the saddle as well as technical trail sessions.
Our test winning enduro bike combines a lightweight frame design with an aggressive geometry. The race and trail proven frame is available in a carbon or aluminium front triangle version and a multitude of spec levels, allowing the seasoned as well as the 'greenhorn' enduro rider to find the perfect bike for their budget. The capable 'Float Link' suspension setup offers almost bottomless travel when heading downhill but doesn’t lag behind on the way back up to the trailhead.
XC / MARATHON
FAST, RELIABLE AND UNCOMPROMISING
Our classic 29er hardtail – available in carbon and aluminium. The BIG.NINE with its racing geometry is an ideal companion on XC and marathon race tracks while the more relaxed geometry of the BIG.NINE TFS and SPEED offers a more comfortable, upright riding position for slightly more relaxed trail adventures.
SPORT & LEISURE
ALL ROUND TRAIL FUN
The alternative to our BIG.NINE 29er hardtails for riders who prefer the smaller 650B wheels. The latest aluminium frame generation of our BIG.SEVEN TFS and SPEED mountain bikes featuring slim tube shapes create a new look and a more relaxed geometry. A shorter top tube and a higher head tube offering a more upright riding position and enhanced trail visibility.
COMFORTABLE, FUN AND VERSATILE
MATTS stands for 'Merida Aluminium TIG-welding Technology System' and is one of the longest running bike categories in our history. This classic mountain bike offers quality aluminium frames, solid spec packages and reliable performance at a fantastic price. Our comfort inspiring MATTS geometry, paired with 650B (or 26" – depending on size and model) wheels and double or tripper drivetrains deliver the perfect entry into the world of mountain biking.
