How do you deliver next-level enduro performance without busting your wallet? The ONE-SIXTY 6000 is how. Merida pair the radical geometry of their new all-carbon frame to components that get the job done without shouting about it. A RockShox Zeb fork and Super Deluxe shock paired to our new FAST kinematic suspension deliver a ride that wants to eat up rocks so fast you’ll be worried about its waistline, while proven Shimano drivetrain and brakes deliver control in any situation.
Evolution or revolution? How about both? The 2022 ONE-SIXTY is a radical, all-new design that pushes our hard-hitting enduro platform to new heights. Just as well, because once it’s there it’s ready to rip the longest, toughest descents too. Their new suspension system uses a flexstay design with an adjustable rocker, so whether you choose to run it as a full 29er (162 mm travel) or mixed 29/27.5” setup (171 mm travel), the geometry is preserved. There’s a radically steep 79° seat tube angle for goat-like climbing and slack 64° head angle plus 170 mm fork to deal with downhill trail chaos. New sizing allows riders to run a longer or shorter reach frame independently of their height, while suspension becomes more progressive as you size up, all with long-travel dropper posts. Merida's WIRE PORT cable routing, reliable threaded bottom bracket plus on-board tool storage round out the package, while carbon frames also offer FidLock magnetic bottle cages.
