The Merida eOne Sixty 500 is the perfect mountain bike for those riders that are starting to look at performance mountain bikes with a bit of assistance. An e-MTB can help you ride if you need a bit of extra help to get out on the trails or for the more experienced riders it can help you ride further and faster. This bike is classified as pedal-assist, meaning the power only kicks in to assist you when you pedal.
It is equipped with the 2019 RaceLite 6066 Aluminum frame, which is a lighter and more advanced frame than previous years. The frame is lighter, yet stiffer because of additional heat treatment and triple-butted wall thickness. While the tapered head tube with 1 1/8″ bearings in the top and 1 1/4″ or 1 1/2″ in the bottom also improves stiffness and steering. The double pass welding finishes off the frame nicely, giving it that clean carbon like appearance. The Shimano E7000 motor and E8010 battery has all the power you will need to help get you up the biggest hills and enjoy the ride.
The eOne Sixty has a Suntour TRIAir 3CR rear shock and Suntour Aion 35-Boost Fork with 160mm travel in the front so that you really can handle the biggest challenges nature has to throw at you. While a Shimano drivetrain takes care of the shifting duties, providing crisp shifts and reliability. Braking is also taken care of by Shimano, with hydraulic disc brakes so that you can have the confidence to push the limits when you ride. The Merida eOne Sixty 500 is a great bike to take your mountain biking from casual and recreational to the next level, with assistance to take you further and faster. The range of high quality Shimano parts and the Merida eOne Sixty Frame will give you reliability and performance that will last through all the challenges you can give it on the trails. Whether you are after a helping hand or just want to focus on the fun parts of mountain biking, an e-MTB is a great option for recreational and serious riders.
