Long-term review of the eONE-SIXTY 800 now on Wideopen

The team at Wideopen have had the chance to try and test our eONE-SIXTY 800 for almost a year, and it has been quite a struggle to prise the bike out their hands again.

Already twice awarded by E-MTB click here and here for the details), we were confident, that our mid-range eONE-SIXTY would also impress the critical eyes of the Wideopen team.

For the Wideopen crew, our Shimano STEPS powered enduro ebike has been a regular companion on endless press trips, on big test rides in the rough hills of North Wales (UK) and the go-to bike for fun sessions on their home trails.

Throughout the extensive test period, the bike performed flawlessly and impressed the test team with the well-sorted suspension, a solid spec package, a reliable and powerful motor and just the endless amount of fun it delivered, ride, after ride, after ride.

VERDICT:
‘…the Germans have put together a great package for a great price. The suspension design and RockShox suspension work brilliantly together and, combined with Shimano’s Steps, it’s a bike you’ll want to ride a hell of a lot.’…’We’d ridden three bikes from Merida this year and every one has been fun, fast and reliable.’

SILEX vs MISSION CX - a comparison

Our current range holds two bikes, which to the untrained eye can look very similar – the SILEX and the all-new MISSION CX. Ultimately they are both ‘dropped handlebar’ off-road bikes, which run on 700c wheels, have disc brakes and come either with a full carbon frameset or an aluminium frame paired with a full carbon fork. But when we look a little deeper, these two bikes are fundamentally different and have their purpose and their strength in very different areas, granted, they do overlap in certain areas, but let's look at the differences first.

Video: SILEX - rock, paper, scissors

Living cycling legends, close friends and riders of two different cycling camps José Antonio Hermida and Joaquim 'Purito' Rodríguez are always undecided when it comes to what to eat, what to drink and even what bike to ride. But on our new SILEX, they could both agree…

Video: Enduro and trail fun – THE ONE-FORTY

Our new ONE-FORTY is a strong climber, an even more avid descender and a super playful trail buddy. We took the chance to join up with Andrew Mee and Dave Hawkes from our MERIDA UK office to discover some of their awesome trails on board our mid travel trail weapon. Come on board and enjoy the ride.
