Merida One-Sixty 6000 - Black




How do you deliver next-level enduro performance without busting your wallet? The ONE-SIXTY 6000 is how. We pair the radical geometry of our new all-carbon frame to components that get the job done without shouting about it. A RockShox Zeb fork and Super Deluxe shock paired to our new FAST kinematic suspension deliver a ride that wants to eat up rocks so fast you’ll be worried about its waistline, while proven Shimano drivetrain and brakes deliver control in any situation.

Evolution or revolution? How about both? The ONE-SIXTY is a radical, all-new design that pushes our 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. Our new suspension system uses a flexstay 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° seat tube angle for goat-like climbing and slack 64° head angle plus 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. Our WIRE PORT cable routing, reliable threaded bottom bracket plus on-board tool storage round out the package, while carbon frames also offer FidLock magnetic bottle cages.

The new ONE-SIXTY is more than just a progression of the old; it is an entirely new beginning and the most uncompromising, adjustable, and flat-out fun long travel bike we have ever created. For some, a ‘ground-up redesign’ might mean a tweak of the angles, a push to the latest wheelsize and the odd new feature thrown in, but when it comes to the new ONE-SIXTY, we’ve looked at the fundamental shifts in the terrain that enduro riders and racers expect to tackle - and started from there instead. The result is the most uncompromising, adjustable, and flat-out long travel bike we have ever created. Yeah, it’s pretty good fun too. When you’re pushing harder and riding faster than ever before, compromise is the last thing you want to have at the back of your mind, which is why we've radically overhauled our sizing system, suspension kinematics and much more, so you don't need to compromise on any aspect of fit or function. You're the best person to choose what works for you - and the new ONE-SIXTY lets you do just that. It's the untamed evolution of the enduro bike.

No aspect has been left untouched; we’ve changed both the geometry and our sizing system to allow you to pick the perfect fit and handling without compromise, we’ve increased travel with an all-new suspension platform that delivers superb performance regardless of shock type or rear wheel size, and we’ve done all that with carbon or aluminium frames that are designed to be tough and easy to maintain. It’s the untamed evolution of the ONE-SIXTY.

The new ONE-SIXTY is a hardcore, long-travel enduro bike. It needs to be able to eat rough and steep trails, big mountains and bike parks for breakfast and it does just that, with 170 mm front travel and 162 mm (in full 29”) or 171 mm (in 29"/27.5") rear wheel travel thanks to our new FAST kinematic suspension.

However, it's catering for the diverging demands of modern mountain bikers that's tricky. If you want outright speed, a longer reach for improved stability might be best, but if you measure success by smiles rather than the stopwatch, you might value agility far more. Full 29” wheels are great on the racetrack or rugged trails but if you came to party or need the clearance, then a mixed setup might be best. While you can select these attributes by sizing your frame up or down, there is always a compromise. Size up for stability and you’ll be left with a long seat tube and dropper post with too much travel, plus a handlebar that's too high. Same goes for switching wheel sizes - move from one to the other and your bike’s geometry will be compromised.

The new ONE-SIXTY removes the need to compromise. The performance you want, married to the perfect fit, with all the features you’ll ever need.

Our all-new Flexstay-Adjustable-Size-Tuned suspension kinematic does what it says on the tin - it’s FAST. The flexstay means we get rid of a pivot point for less maintenance and lower weight, it’s adjustable to work with full 29” wheels or a mixed ‘mullet’ setup without altering the geometry, and it’s size-tuned to deliver more wheel rate progression as you move up the frame lengths, allowing smaller, lighter riders to access all their travel while giving heavier or harder riders the support they need.

Using a flexstay design means a back end that’s stiffer in all the right places, plus fewer bearings and less maintenance. That’s on both our carbon and aluminium frames - and before you freak out about bending metal, it’s engineered to have minimal movement, so it’s no big deal. The frame warranty covers five years of extreme Category 5 use - yep, even bike park laps every day.

The frame warranty covers five years of extreme Category 5 use - yep, even bike park laps every day.

Whether you run full 29” or mixed wheels, it doesn’t matter as the geometry is kept exactly the same, though we give the little wheels a little helping hand by bumping up the rear travel to 171 mm from 162 mm. Choose the big wheels all around for pure smooth rolling efficiency, or choose a smaller rear wheel for a more playful feel and extra bum clearance. Oh, and we now run a full 170 mm of travel at the front too, because that’s what modern tracks demand.

We feel the pain of smaller riders that can never access the last bit of travel - we also know what it’s like for the hard and heavy riders that see the bottom-out bumper way more than is healthy. That’s why our size-tuned suspension kinematic delivers more progression as you size up, so heavier or harder hooners can keep sending it further, but everyone else can actually use the travel they’ve brought to the party.

Want to switch from party-mode mullet setup to flying Business Class with a full 29er? It's no problem - and thanks to our flip-chip, it won't create a problem with the geometry either. Usually, moving to a smaller or larger wheel would have a knock-on effect of changing the head angle, bottom bracket height and all sorts of other stuff you don't want to go messing with, but thanks to this neat bit of engineering, you can keep the geometry totally static while switching up your rear wheel size. It's simple too - just a pair of chips in the seat stay pivot that are flipped around to compensate for the change in diameter of the wheel.

Our new geometry delivers next-level performance, with a steep seat tube for efficient climbing and a slack head angle for capable descending. The bit in the middle? Well, that’s up to you. It’s why we created our AGILOMETER sizing system, so you can choose whether you want a bike with a long reach for a stable, planted feel or something shorter that’s lively and agile. Or, you know, that Goldilocks somewhere-in-between feeling. You don’t need to argue about what’s best, just choose whatever works for you.

We didn’t invent sizing bikes by reach, but we do think our system is the most comprehensive yet because it deals with two other key factors in getting your ride right; dropper post travel and handlebar height. Sizing up is no good if you’re stuck with a too-long seat tube and dropper post that doesn’t allow any clearance, as well as handlebars that are way too high for you. The same goes if the dropper doesn’t reach your bum and the bars are below that - but our holistic AGILOMETER concept provides the solution.

Having a dropper post that’s too short or too long is no good. We’ve got around this issue by fitting our new MERIDA TEAM TR dropper post. It delivers a whopping 230 mm of travel but is infinitely adjustable down to just 30 mm. We’ve also designed in a low standover and an uninterrupted seat tube on all sizes. Get the right saddle height, get the maximum dropper travel - and all without changing any components.

The same goes for a front end that’s too low or too high. Short stack heights on all bikes allow the bars to be run low by those that want them slammed, but we offer two different bar rises for different sizes so you can get them back up to where you need them, if you need to. For further fine-tuning of reach and stack, there is the option to run just the right amount of spacers too. The choice is yours.

Our engineers ride bikes, so they know the job isn’t finished once you’ve made an amazing frame - it’s the details that matter too. There are no odd standards either; threaded BB, SRAM UDH hanger, Boost 148 rear wheel spacing. It’s all been tested by the ZEDLER Institute, so it’s made to last. We also back the bike up with a five-year warranty, even for racing or bike park usage.

You can run our TUBE BASE PLATE to carry a backup tube and on carbon models, there’s a built-in Fidlock bottle cage mount, so even the shortest sizes can run a proper 600 ml bottle. Our carbon models have our MSP - the MERIDA SERVICE PORT. It allows plenty of access for easy, sleek and silent internal cable routing in conjunction with our WIRE PORT headset, but there’s also space to stick some emergency supplies in there too.

Besides offering plenty of frame protection to keep your frame looking fresh and to silence your ride, we’ve also got a built-in rear fender to keep the dirt off - and if additional mud and spray protection is needed, we also have a long version in our accessories program. Our almost invisible yet super effective MERIDA ISCG05 chain guide and the NON-SLIP TIGHTENING system in conjunction with larger diameter bearings round off the ONE-SIXTY.

All in all, it’s the most advanced, best handling and most feature-packed enduro bike we’ve ever created, and it sets the tone for what MERIDA mountain bikes stand for.

We use easy, sleek and silent internal cable routing in conjunction with our WIRE PORT headset, When we say internal cable routing, that’s internally run and guided from front to rear, on both carbon and aluminium bikes. There are no cables hanging out halfway to get snagged or damaged in the middle of the bike either, thanks to our through-pivot routing too.

Our NON-SLIP TIGHTENING system allows you to easily secure suspension pivots with only a single tool, making trailside tweaks easy and regular maintenance a breeze. We’ve also built in durability with larger diameter, tougher bearings in our linkages and pivots.

Need some more on-board storage? Carbon models have our MSP - the MERIDA SERVICE PORT. It allows plenty of access for easy, sleek and silent internal cable routing in conjunction with our WIRE PORT headset, but there’s also space to stick some emergency supplies in there too.

Our MSP allows you easy access to your cables, but on carbon frames, it also allows us a bit of storage space. That’s why we created a neat little roll-up bag that allows you to take a mini pump and some extra emergency bits and pieces, all protected from the elements and ready for when you need them. Don’t use it for your sandwiches though - that’s silly.

Our carbon-framed bikes have a flush-fitting magnetic Fidlock mount, meaning you can carry and quickly access a water bottle or accessory kit on the bike without the hassle of a cage. Just twist to release and drop to secure - it’s practically magic.

You don’t want to be riding without a tube, but you want to keep your back free of a pack, and your bike free of ugly straps - no problem, as our removable TUBE BASE PLATE means you can carry a tube as well as a CO2 cartridge with ease.

Add in our MERIDA V-Mount Multitool under the saddle and our 4/6 mm Allen key on the removable rear through axle lever, and you’ll be ready to go without needing to pick up a pack.

Our standard small fender helps keep mud and moisture off the main pivot, but if you want to keep your body clean as well, as also offer an optional long fender that hard mounts to the bike. No more poorly zip-tied guard flapping about, catching on tyres or your frame - just neatly integrated protection.

We’ve picked standards that work well and are easy to find, even when you’re travelling far from home. That means a 148 mm rear wheel spacing with no odd dishing. A threaded BSA bottom bracket, so finding a replacement will be easy and fitting it will be even easier. SRAM’s Universal Derailleur Hanger, so you don’t need to worry about finding the right part when you’re travelling.

There’s plenty more protection as standard too, with an anti-noise 3-D moulded chainstay armour, protection film in key areas like the inner rear triangle and an extended downtube protector to shield the bike from trail debris and transport mishaps. We have our almost invisible yet super effective MERIDA chain guide to keep the chain in check.
