Merida 2020 eONE SIXTY 8000 Glossy – Purple Rainbow/Matt Black
The ‘original’ eONE-SIXTY is the most decorated, tested and awarded bike in MERIDA’s history and has shaped what MERIDA is known for today: innovation, quality and outstanding performance. However, after three years at the top of the e-enduro ranking, it was time to distil the essence of the ‘old’ eONE-SIXTY, incorporate the latest trends and standards, and create the new version: goodbye and hello eONE-SIXTY – the new MERIDA benchmark for dynamic and design.
The new eONE-SIXTY once again embodies e-enduro bikes, instead of the normally needed shuttle to session your favourite tracks, you have your own built-in engine to assist you to the top. On downhills, it still feels like a normal bike, agile due to its perfectly tuned MTB geometry, but more planted because of the higher weight. All in all, it’s a super fun bike with a clear focus on trail riding. But the last few years have shown that our eONE-SIXTY is also often used as a kind of 'SUV' bike. Because of the advantages of more travel, bigger tyres and comfortable geometry, it also shines away from the enduro tracks and offers a super fun, comfortable and capable alternative to a ‘normal’ mountain bike.
The eONE-SIXTY is positioned as a high-end state of the art e-bike. Material, design and integration are cutting edge. Nothing less could be expected after the super successful first generation eONE-SIXTY which influenced a whole generation of e-bikes.

MERIDA MINI FENDER The new eONE-SIXTY comes with specific finder fenders that attach to the fork arch as well as seat bridge. The rear mini fender protects the dropper seat post and ensures longer durability, while the front fender helps to keep mud and spray water out to the rider’s eyes.
ENERGY GUARD Two-component battery cover, which offers perfect protection for the battery. The softer (outer) layer reduces noises, seals the downtube perfectly and absorbs hits from stones easily, while the harder (inner) layer ensures that the battery does not get damaged and gives it the structural shape. All crucial parts like the rubber strap and o-rings for perfect fitting can be replaced.
THERMO GATE Specifically located openings near the head tube which work like a chimney and allow the warm air to dissipate to guarantee the optimum operating temperature of the internal battery. The THERMO GATE enables the battery to perform at its best, in any condition.
MERIDA EXPERT TR AXLE Through axle with removable axle lever. The leaver (when inserted into the axle) allows easy loosening and tightening of the axle. When removed, it works as a 4 mm Alley key, perfect for tightening, for example, the seat clamp or the stem bolt, while also ideal for removing the battery or activating the ‘wake up button’.
EXPERT TR DROPPER SEAT POST MERIDA dropper post allowing the rider to get the saddle out of the way when the gradient gets steeper, giving him/her more space to manoeuver and control over their bike. Our 150 mm post fits completely into the seat tube of an M size frame, while the L and XL frame can accommodate even a 170 mm dropper. As all our e-bike specced parts, it has been tested and certified for a 140 kg system weight.
MERIDA EXPERT ETR COCKPIT The EXPERT eTR cockpit offers internal cable routing for the e-system cables through the handlebar and stem for an extra clean and organised look. As all our e-bike specific parts, the eTR cockpit is tested for a 140 kg system weight.
SHIMANO SHIFTER-R AND DROPPER SEAT POST LEVER Very compact and well-defined assist level shifter that helps to keep the cockpit clean and less clattered, while it also enables easy access to the Shimano paddle style dropper seat post leaver, that fits neatly to the brake lever bracket and is positioned underneath the handlebars.
MAXXIS ASSEGAI 3C EXO+ 29X2.5″ / DHR II 27.5X2.6″ 29×2/5″ Maxxis Assegai on the front featuring the most aggressive downhill pattern that Maxxis offers while the 29er wheel offers better ‘rolling over obstacles’ behaviour. This gets paired with a MAXXIS DHR II 27.5×2.6″ at the back, for maximum traction yet agile and playful riding characteristics.
