eONE-SIXTY 975

 

Combine our award-winning frame design, world-beating handling and an all-aluminium frame and you get high-value, high-quality and huge range, thanks to the EP8 drive and 750 Wh battery.

It’s in the genes. By combining our award-winning handling and mixed wheel size setup with a tough but sleek all-aluminium frame, the eONE-SIXTY 975 delivers stunning value and stunning performance. The refined Shimano EP8 drive unit is powered by a huge 750 Wh battery that’s neatly integrated into the frame. Add in the proven performance of RockShox suspension and the mega-durable Shimano LinkGlide transmission and you’re ready to rock.

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 all-aluminium e-enduro bike will be equipped with the proven EP8 motor from Shimano as well as with the range extending 630 Wh or 750 Wh (model specific) internal battery. A perfectly tuned MTB geometry, paired with a tough all-aluminium frame, seamlessly integrated battery and a 29er/27.5" wheel combo that delivers poise and confidence on the toughest trails, the eONE-SIXTY is ready for anything you can throw at it.

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

SMART ENTRY

Many of our frames offer internal cable routing, where the gear and brake cables are run through the frame for maximum protection and a clean look. Some internally run cables can rattle when riding over uneven surfaces, but our SMART ENTRY system prevents this from happening. Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent noisy cable movement. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with any kind of cable or wire.

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.

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.

CASTED MOTOR BRACKET

The e-bike motor mount has a sophisticated shape that is only possible to create with casting technology. Casting this piece allows us to create a complex yet lightweight shape that gives an extremely strong connection between the motor and the frame for improved performance and reliability. It also gives the bike and motor a smooth and cleanly integrated appearance.

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.

ENERGY GUARD TWIST

A two-component battery cover fitted to bikes with an internally mounted battery. It protects the battery from dirt and moisture, with a softer outer layer that absorbs impacts. An easy-to-use twist lock mechanism secures the cover in place without the need for tools with a simple and light action that makes it easy to access the battery for off-bike charging, but prevents the cover from falling off, even when riding on the roughest terrain.
