The age of the traditional e-MTB is over - which kind of e-MTBer are you?

Is long-range your priority, or will you sacrifice battery capacity for high-performance handling? Do you need to sacrifice the support of a full power drive unit in the search for reduced weight? Trying to satisfy all these requirements in one bike means making some serious compromises.
With this in mind, Merida have developed two new bikes sharing the same core attributes on a completely new platform. Both benefit from the development time and testing that went into the award winning regular One-Sixty range, bringing innovation in suspension, sizing and geometry to the forefront. Each has a different focus.

Two Options - No Compromises
The new eOne-Sixty CF has a lightweight full carbon frame with an integrated 600WH battery to deliver a full-power e-bike with minimal mass and uncompromising handling. If you’re a race head looking to maximise agility and handling fun, this is your perfect team mate.

The suspension platform shared by both models is derived from the FAST kinematics first seen on the One-Sixty and One-Forty models but it’s been fine tuned to the needs of eMTBs. It offers size specific kinematics and progression, matching the frame size not only to the rider’s height but also to their riding style. Merida's new geometry has been heavily influenced by the success of the original eOne-Sixty and the award winning regular One-Sixty, combining incredible climbing power with impressive trail capability. It's progressive for high performance and it's been tweaked to better suit e-bikes. horter reaches and higher front ends have been introduced to improve agility.

Compared to the previous eOne-Sixty, the stack has been reduced, creating a more aggressive riding position with a lower front end. As with the regular One-Sixty, we believe it’s better to have the option to raise the stack with spacers or a higher rise bar than to be stuck with a high head tube and a bar you can’t lower. The geometry of the new carbon eOne-Sixty CF and the aluminium Lite is identical; it’s been modernised but retains the highly acclaimed handling characteristics of the previous eOne-Sixty.

A 30-230 mm travel adjustable dropper post (excluding the eOne-Sixty 675), combined with a low stand-over height allows riders to select a bike size based on their preferences rather than their height. Short, Mid and Long sizing reflects the proven Agilometer sizing system, accommodating all needs from long-reach stability to shorter-reach manoeuvrability or more upright riding comfort.

Merida Team TR II Dropper Post
Travel is adjustable from 30-230 mm via a simple-to-use seat post collar tightening mechanism, integral to the flexibility of the Agilometer sizing and comfort concept. The 34.9 mm size reduces stresses on the dropper post internals and the frame, further improving durability.

Class Leading Performance and Refined Features
Shimano STePS power systems are a market leader in the world of e-bikes, offering smooth, reliable and highly effective pedal support power delivery, with the ability to pair various battery and control elements to create the perfect e-bike drivetrain.
The lightweight EP801 motor unit sits at the top of the STePS motor hierarchy, aimed at performance-orientated mountain bikers. Delivering a maximum torque of 85 Nm with peak power of 600W and a finely tuned motor set-up, it perfectly complements the eOne-Sixty frame, providing support in demanding riding situations. A 360WH range extender is available separately.
