Merida Bikes E160

Merida have long held acclaim for the eONE-SIXTY, one of the first proper e-MTB’s to have sorted geometry and a real enduro feel. It’s won plenty of awards over the years, and rightly so. By today’s standards, it’s perhaps not the longest, lowest or slackest enduro focused e-MTB on the market, but that doesn’t detract from what is an exceedingly…

Striking, that is the word that came to mind on first sight of the Merida Big trail 600. A gorgeous forest green set off with bright red forks and decals. The 2021 model is an equally alluring purple affair that also catches the eye. This is the top of the range Big Trail, with 2 lower models for 2021. Beyond…

It's fair to say Merida’s eONE-SIXTY was a massive success for the brand when it was launched. E-bikes were still finding their way in the world and the bike managed to provide riders with a brilliant ride that rode like a normal bike. Fast-forward to the present day and Merida has introduced both a new eONE-SIXTY and an eONE-FORTY. Based…

Having spent time on the 900e model last year, it was clear that Merida had a particularly strong grasp on the ebike market with a fantastic bike. The major issue for myself was that their sizing only went up to large. Roll into 2019 and low and behold we have an XL eONE-SIXTY, and I really wanted to spend some…

Merida Bikes Mission 8000 CX

Despite my go-to bikes always being long travel 29ers, I find myself endlessly intrigued by drop-bar bikes. Whether it's reminiscing about my early year's mountain biking, or just enjoying something different, my need for a gravel/cross/road-duro bike seems to continue to the point where I find life hard without one in the garage. For mountain bikers, a drop bar bike…

Continuing Merida's overhaul of their full suspension range, the 120 is the latest model to be brought up to speed. Sharing the style and layout of the bigger 160 and 140 models, the 120 aims to be everything the modern trail rider wants from a bike. Merida claim this new bike is the best balance of 'trail oriented riding on…

Merida has certainly reinvented itself in recent years with enduro bikes and hardtails that show a distinct change in direction from their XC heyday. This eOne Sixty is a further move from their traditional roots and has taken the e-bike market by storm. Very quickly this bike has secured itself as potentially one of the best e-bikes out there. This…

Merida isn't a brand that tells you what to think about their bikes. Having undergone a transformation over the past few years, they have quietly released some exceptional bikes into the mountain bike world. Not shy of trying something new, the traditionally Lycra focussed brand now have class-leading ebikes, enduro bikes and even a hardcore hardtail. This meant I wasn't…

Merida has hit the ground running in 2017, they have launched a barrage of bikes into the arena to do battle with the trail, enduro and e-bike establishment. With bikes like the Big Trail, the ONE SIXTY and their electric equivalents, this has been a special year for the brand. But what of the heritage, the kind of bikes Merida…

When Merida announced their 2017 lineup, I thought it would maybe feature a few new models or a colour change here and there. What I wasn't prepared for was an almost complete overhaul of the range, changes to style, geometry, specs and nearly everything else. Hidden amongst this brand new set of machines was the Big Trail, an aluminium hardtail…

The One-Forty range is Merida’s contender for the (you guessed it) 140mm travel 27.5” All Mountain sector, with the top of the line 800 sporting a pair of 150mm RockShox Revelations up front, which gives some indication as to the persona of this solid looking bike. Revelations now share the same chassis at Pikes with 35mm stanchions and are much…
