Budget busting aluminium eOne-Sixty, your cheapest option for eEnduro. After 3 years of fantastic reviews, awards and accolades Merida distilled the essence of the ‘old’ eOne-Sixty to create an innovative new carbon frame with easy access internal battery that can be charged on or off the bike. After a huge investment in technology, we were able to replicate the frame in aluminium. The new laser cutting machine can perform all the process previously done by 6 CNC machines in a matter of minutes. The new eOne Sixty is perfect for e-enduro riding with its perfectly tuned MTB geometry and mullet wheel standard it feels incredibly planted when descending the most demanding of trails. The eOne-Sixty 300 uses the 60NM Shimano E7000 motor and 504w battery with SR Suspension and Shimano Deore 10 speed transmission.
Cables, housings and brake hoses are clamped under tension to prevent rattling when the trails get rough. All inlets are completely interchangeable to deal with Di2, hydraulic hoses, brake cable and gear cable housings etc.
The precision engineered battery cover took twice as long to develop as the ebike itself! Offering protection for the battery, the softer outer layer reduces noise, perfectly sealing the downtube and absorbing hits from stones whilst the harder inner layer ensures helps maintain its structural shape. Crucial parts such as the rubber strap and o-rings can be replaced.
Both the aluminium and carbon eOne-Sixty share the same rear triangle made from aluminium. It is also one of the strongest rear ends Merida has ever made, and we know that it has fantastic durability and stiffness characteristics.
The dropper seat post allows the rider to get the saddle out of the way when the gradient gets steeper, offering more space to manoeuvre and greater control over the bike. Our 150 mm post fits perfectly into the seat tube of an M size frame; the L and XL frame can also accommodate a 170 mm dropper. As all our e-bike parts, it has been tested and certified for a 140 kg system weight.
Merida custom On/Off Switch
The Merida Custom On/Off Switch is located on the lower part of the downtube. Here the switch can be easily reached to turn the system on or off while being out of harm’s way.
Powerful internal lithium-ion battery that offers 504 Wh, charges up from 0-100% in 6 hours (when EC-E8004 charger is used) and retains at least 60% of its original battery capacity after 1,000 charging cycles. The aluminium cased battery is extremely compact, allowing us to seamlessly integrate it into the downtube for ample space for the rear shock, added water bottle fixing points and plenty of top tube clearance. It has a waterproof design and is impact and vibration resistant.
