THE MBUK test crew included our ONE-SIXTY 8000 in their ‘Super Bike of the Year’ test (MBUK, Summer 2017, page 118) and described it as ‘Outstanding shape, handling balance and suspension…’.

Our top end enduro bike was part of an illustrious line-up of the best MTBs you can buy today and impressed the test crew with its thought-out and well-executed geometry, its overall spec choice and its outstanding descending qualities.

‘The ONE-SIXTY is clearly a gravity-orientated rig though, and while it has 160mm of travel, its capacity to calmly swallow the biggest blocks and drops of battering black runs or off-piste boulder fields without flinching, spiking or getting kicked off line means it feels like a much bigger bike. This means you can push the MERIDA hard on the rowdiest trails with masses more confidence than on most other bikes – even the elite line-up assembled here.’
