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…

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…

With Merida giving their range a massive overhaul this year, there has been a lot of excitement around a certain all-mountain/enduro bike they were releasing - the One-Sixty! The model is available in three builds with this bike we have on test, the One-Sixty 7000, sitting in the middle of the range. Merida are from Taiwan, the home of bike…

The Merida 120 sits in that middle ground of bikes that have become collectively known as “trail”, which covers seemingly everything from around 110mm-150mm of travel in a wide variety of combinations and indeed wheel sizes. Being neither cross-country nor enduro machines, they are realistically intended to do the sort of riding most people do, most of the time. Like…

Expect nothing less than the ultimate ride from your favorite bicycle brand – engineered in Germany, tested by pros, built in Taiwan. MERIDA. MORE BIKE. MERIDA’s company founder Ike Tseng (1932–2012) was a very honourable person and a real visionary. During a trip through the USA at the beginning of the 1970s, he discovered a note at the door of a bike shop stating that not any bikes from Taiwan were accepted for repair due to bad quality. This annoyed Ike Tseng – and already shortly afterwards in September 1972, the first production plant of his company Merida Industry Co., Ltd. was opened in Yuanlin (Taiwan). The man whose life motto was “move with passion and courage” chose the name “Merida” intentionally: The rough translation of the three syllables “Me-Ri-Da” means that the company’s intention is to manufacture only beautiful and high-quality products enabling anyone to reach her or his destination as pleasantly as possible. But Ike Tseng wouldn’t have been himself if he had been satisfied with the successful realization of his plan to be able to offer high-quality bikes “Made in Taiwan”. So in 1988, he took the second big step by launching the independent brand MERIDA: In accordance with the corporate philosophy, the frames of a complete range of sophisticated and internationally recognized bikes should be graced deservedly by the three syllables “Me-Ri-Da”. In 2013, MERIDA celebrates its 25th anniversary – and justifiably so, we are very proud to live up to the expectations of our founder. By combining an experienced German R&D centre with excellent Taiwanese production competence, MERIDA is able to satisfy demanding bikers with everything imaginable – models for children, e-bikes or high-end racing machines. We are especially proud of the fact that MERIDA lives up to its ultimate athletic ambition every year by equipping elite pilots like the MTB riders of the MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM or the pro road racers of the TEAM LAMPRE-MERIDA with top-level “working tools” scoring highest athletic honours very regularly. On the occasion of this successful quarter of a century, we are also proud to present our customers a new appearance of the brand MERIDA with Model Year 2014: MORE BIKE. Because a MERIDA always offers the essential “more” which gives you the pleasant feeling of having chosen the right bike. Mr. William Jeng Senior Vice President Merida Industry Co., Ltd. Merida Industry Co., Ltd. is located in Yuanlin, Taiwan. The company was founded in 1972 by Ike Tseng (1932-2012) and started to produce its first bikes on July 10th, 1973. By now Merida is well known for its German engineered high quality bikes both off- and on-road as well as in terms of leisure and urban biking. There are two more production locations in Shenzhen and Shandong (PRC). This is the offcial company fanpage, guided by the marketing department located in Germany.
