Totally planted, thoroughly sorted, and outrageously capable. The Merida 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 a mullet setup. Merida's new FAST kinematic is paired with 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 design that pushes the hard-hitting One-Sixty enduro platform to new heights. Just as well, because once it's there it's ready to rip the longest, toughest descents too. The suspension system uses a flex stay 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-degree seat tube angle for goat-like climbing and a slack 64-degree head angle plus a 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. WIRE PORT cable routing plus a reliable threaded bottom bracket round out the package, while the ingenious carbon frame offers onboard tool storage and a FidLock magnetic bottle cage.
Tapered Head Tube
This design is stiffer than a conventional straight head tube and yields a more secure ride feel even in difficult terrain. Minimal flex at the front of the frame means the greatest possible steering precision. With the larger steerer, the forks become more rigid and the weight is saved due to the absence of bearing shells as the lower bearing is fully integrated into the head tube.
Merida's proprietary P-Flex technology, uses the inherent compliance of the carbon and a leaf-spring-like frame design, to allow the frame to flex near the seat and chainstay junction enough to make the pivot point obsolete, all without impacting durability. This gives you a lighter bike and increased stiffness for a better ride.
Nano Matrix Carbon
To give you the strongest and best Carbon frames, Merida utilises Nano Matrix technology. The Carbon fibres are bonded together using an epoxy resin with added nano particles which increases the impact resistance by up to 40%!
