Totally planted, thoroughly sorted and outrageously capable. The all-new ONE-SIXTY 8000 delivers top-level performance with a lightweight, carbon fibre frame with radical geometry and sizing plus the ability to run 29er or mixed 29”/27.5” wheels. Our new FAST kinematic is paired to a high-end RockShox 170 mm Zeb fork and Super Deluxe shock, while the SRAM GX wireless transmission gives clean, precise shifts every time.
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. Merida's 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.
