The enduro inspired 65.5° head angle in combination with the 140mm fork delivers a fun confidence inspiring bike. A long reach and short seat tube gives plenty of space to manoeuvre on the bike and a really low stand over height. Merida use long dropper posts to achieve the short seat tube.

Speccing 29er wheels with 2.4” tyres meant designing the bike around a 55mm chain line to give ample tyre clearance even in muddy trail conditions. The seat angle is much more aggressive compared than our XC focussed bikes making climbing easier. Another advantage of the geometry is depending on the riding style, most sizes work for most body sizes. The only question is if you want to go crazy fast or super agile. For speed take the longer size, for agility take a shorter size.
