It is going downhill with MERIDA – and you will love it!
Completely new for 2017 - our full suspension ONE-SIXTY is the best Enduro bike we have ever made. Our engineers had a clear goal – to create the perfect Enduro machine for today’s toughest tracks. It is a bike that inspires confidence and delivers unparalleled stability at speed, while maintaining a playful character and all that in a sexy package, utilising the latest materials and suspension components. The end result: our new ONE-SIXTY Enduro weapon. It is based on a weight optimised carbon fibre front triangle, combined with a super lightweight 6013 aluminium back end (complete frame comes in at just over 2,500g!), delivering 170mm front and 160mm ‘Float Link’ super controlled rear wheel travel. The super short 430mm chain stays, long reach (445mm in size M) and slack head angle of 65.3° make it an uncompromising ‘full gas’ Enduro machine. Our ONE-SIXTY is not just a demon when you point it down the track but shows uphill pedal efficiency you would not expect from a bike with this amount of travel. The latest RockShox ‘Metric Shock’ technology delivers unprecedented performance and longevity.
Superlite 16 Rear triangle
Due to our new ‘Superlite 16 Alloy’ aluminium grade the super strong rear triangle of our ONE-SIXTY comes in at a mere 1300g – with all the advantages aluminium brings to the table when used at the constantly bombarded rear end of our Enduro bike.
New shock unit generation
Thanks to the ‘Trunnion Mount’, our designers simply have more freedom when designing the top tube. Its shorter eye-to-eye measurement while maintaining the shock travel opens the door for the full suspension bikes of the future.
Boost 148 rear hub
No doubt: Our ONE-SIXTY, which feels right at home on the proper rough stuff, comes equipped with Boost wheels. Improved stiffness and shorter chain stays for improved agility underline the playful side of our new Enduro bike.
Pure Enduro geometry
With a 74,5° steep seat angle in size M our new ONE-SIXTY is a real demon when it comes to climbing and acceleration. And once at speed the 65,3° slack head angle keeps things calm and controlled.
Carbon fibre main frame
Our very first carbon Enduro bike impresses with a front triangle weight of around 1000g (size M, without shock) – a top weight for maximum Enduro fun and not just on the downs.
With either 11 or 12 gears in the rear, ‘1x only’ drivetrains offer a broad range on this light Enduro bike. And you can leave your front derailleur worries at home.
