Merida One-Sixty 8000 – MY22/23 2022/23
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. The new FAST kinematic is paired to a high-end RockShox 170mm Zeb fork and Super Deluxe shock, while the SRAM GX wireless transmission gives clean, precise shifts every time.
The One-Sixty is a radical, all-new design that pushes Merida’s 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 (162mm travel) or mixed 29/27.5” setup (171mm travel), the geometry is preserved. There’s a radically steep 79° seat tube angle for goat-like climbing and slack 64° head angle plus 170mm 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 reliable threaded bottom bracket round out the package, while carbon frame models offer on-board tool storage and FidLock magnetic bottle cages.
