THE PLAYFUL ENDURO BIKE WITH BUILT IN SHUTTLE SERVICE
Enduro riders normally don’t shy away from a shuttle or an uplift at the bikepark. Enduro bikes however first and foremost are fun bikes that climb fairly but have lots of reserves for when the going gets rough downhill. In 2017 our clever engineers have taken the ONE-SIXTY and added a built in shuttle service to create the award and test winning eONE-SIXTY! This 160/160 mm enduro full suspension e-bike with its all-aluminium frame delivers all the latest features like complete internal cable routing with ‘Smart Entry’ cable access. Due to 650b+ tyres, Boost Standard wheels, Shimano E8000 STePS motor and fun focussed agile and playful geometry (reach for a M frame is 440 mm) our eONE-SIXTY is a thoroughbred enduro and scores as highly as the non-powered ONE-SIXTY when it comes to trail fun. From now on, pedalling to the top and ordering a shuttle service will be the same.
Our eONE-SIXTY is one of the most decorated bikes in MERIDA’s history with a sheer endless list of awards and test wins in its trophy cabinet: ‘Best in Test’ and ‘Best Value’ from E-Mountainbike Magazine, Design & Innovation Award 2017, test winner in the German MOUNTAINBIKE magazine and quotes like ‘the highest scoring e-bike that we’ve ever ridden’ from DIRT…just to mention a few.
PLAYFUL IN EVERY FIBRE
The geometry of our performance bike says it all: 440 mm reach (Size M), 439 mm chain short stays, 75° seat and 66.5° head angle – you simply can’t squeeze more fun into an e-full suspension.
The eONE-SIXTY is a pure enduro bike. Period. Naturally, it comes with a fit for purpose chain guard which ensures you can shred with confidence.
New ‘Metric Shocks’ from RockShox with their ‘Trunnion Mount’ offer more space in the front triangle. Advantage: more space for an even more sloping top tube due to the reduced height of the shock unit while offering the same travel.
Our enduro bikes have a tougher life than any other category. Therefore it is clear that cables and hoses have no business being run outside the frame. Thanks to our super smart ‘Smart Entry’ technology, even when the going gets rough, everything – including the hose for the remote dropper post - stays where it belongs without rattling all the way down the track.
BOOST THAT RIDE
‘Boost’ standard front & rear – the extra 6 mm rear hub spacing in comparison with conventional hubs brings the width up to 148 mm and gives the eONE-SIXTY wheels noticeably more stiffness and strength.
Plus-wide tyres offer loads and loads of up-hill traction, corner grip, puncture resistance and cushioning. In short: plus equals fun! No surprise that a primarily fun-orientated bike like the eONE-SIXTY rolls on this tyre format.
