Merida Big Trail 700

  • Lightweight Alloy Frame
  • 12 Speed Shimano SLX Drivetrain with Clutch
  • Shimano SLX Hydraulic Disc Brakes
  • FOX 34 Float Performance Air Fork - 140mm Travel


"Merida has pitched the Big.Trail with the tagline 'Trail Fun Simplified' and it has done a great job of creating a package that maximises ride time and a broad range of users. The frame rides really well on technical rocky singletrack but has the fixtures you need for extended adventures or daily driver commuting."
- Gut Kesteven

Bike Perfect

The Merida Big.Trail 700 is the ultimate All-Mountain Hardtail with an impressive specs list only matched by its hardcore performance. This is an all-new beast when compared to the Big.Trail 600 thanks to the uprated components Merida have utilised! The Big.Trail 700 has taken the simplicity of a hardtail mountain bike with the excitement of a long travel fork to the next level - this is an All Mountain Bike that's at home on steep, technical descents and big jumps. The Big.Trail offers modern trail geometry, big 29" wheels and long travel for a grippy, yet comfortable ride. Merida has designed the Big.Trail 700 to get the most out of a hardtail that is comfortable, easy to set up and maintain. With the Big.Trail 700, you get an All Mountain Hardtail offering unparalleled performance and is destined to replace your desire for a Dual Suspension Mountain Bike.

The Big.Trail 700s lightweight alloy frame has a clean and simple look thanks to the internally routed cables and is perfectly paired with the aggressive FOX 34 Float Performance Air Fork. You're offered a lightweight fork with 140mm travel, an easy-to-use adjuster, improved sensitivity and more consistent feedback. Not only does this mean that the Big.Trail 700 is more accurate, you'll find yourself more in tune with your ride, helping you to push your boundaries further than ever before! With the included Merida-branded long travel dropper post, standover height and this your centre of gravity can be reduced allowing you to manoeuvre more easily as the trail gets more technical. While the modern trail geometry ensures that you can maintain control even when pushing your limit and yet still climb with ease thanks to the central seating position over the bottom bracket.

Merida has taken the liberty of upgrading the Big.Trail 700 to a 12 speed Shimano SLX drivetrain with remote actuated clutch, saving a significant amount of weight when compared to the Deore offering on the Big.Trail 600, as well as offering serious efficiency improvements. Although the Big.Trail 700 is the lightest offering in the Big.Trail range, Merida recognised that the serious performance on offer would require greater tempering. As a result, the Big.Trail 700 features Shimano SLX Hydraulic Disc brakes with 4-Piston calipers for marked increases in braking power and modulation, while the inclusion of ICE technology means your brakes will remain cooler resulting in consistent performance. Finally, the neat inclusion of multiple mounting points for bottles and hidden rack, fender and kickstand mounts means the Big.Trail 700 is just as capable out on the trails, as it is bike-packing or commuting.

The Big.Trail 700 is a serious performance bike, and the perfect addition for experienced riders wanting to perfect their technical prowess. Indeed, the Big.Trail 700 is a lightweight All Mountain Hardtail offering, designed for extreme speed through gnarly sections, and for being sent off huge jumps. While the accuracy it can offer through technical sections, regardless of terrain, thanks to the FOX Float 34 Performance Fork means the Big.Trail 700's performance is practically unparalleled. Welcome to the world of All Mountain Hardtails. Welcome to the Merida Big.Trail 700 Mountain Bike. 

Modern Trail Geometry

The long reach, slack 65.5° head angle and steep seat angle place you directly over the bottom bracket. This results in a lower centre of gravity and ensures the BIG.TRAIL does exactly what you ask when you descend even when the trail is gnarly! Equally, this ensures that it maintains its impressive climbing ability.


FOX Float 34 Performance Air Fork offers an aggressive ride, designed to accurately navigate technical sections and soak up the terrain. The Big.Trail 700 is pure performance without skimping on comfort.

Merida Dropper Post

Merida long travel dropper posts allow for a low standover height when you're full send - keep your centre of gravity low and bomb down the trail.
