9/10 MBR enduro bike test winner

Lightweight for heavy going.  The Merida One Sixty 5000 650b (27.5”) is a full sus enduro mountain bike for all-day trail adventures on challenging tracks.

The lightweight (1000g, size M) carbon fibre front triangle is mated to a superlight 6013 aluminium rear triangle which offers a stiff and strong platform for taking on challenging terrain. A long top tube with low bottom bracket and slack 65.3 degree head angle offers dialled enduro geometry for efficient climbing and confident descending on the most demanding trails.

The floating rear suspension design features the new trunnion shock mount on the RockShox Super Deluxe shock and offers 160mm of plush suspension travel and leaves enough room for a bottle cage in the frame. The RockShox Yari RC fork offers 170mm of plush suspension control up front.

The SRAM NX 1×11 speed drivetrain offers easy shifting and quiet running over rough ground with a wide range of gears for the ups and downs. Shimano hydraulic brakes deliver confident stopping power.

‘…The One-Sixty hits its mark beautifully, providing everything you would want from a long travel trail bike; It’s slack and stable, responsive to steer quickly and playful to jump around on’.  –
