The Merida Big Trail 500 is a burly hardtail beast which is at home on the trails. The Big Trail reignites a bike with modern trail geometry, big 29er wheels and long travel for grip and comfort. This bike is all about bringing the most out of a hardtail which is easy to set up, maintain, affordable and can be just as fun as a full suspension mountain bike.

The lightweight alloy frame with internally routed cables is paired with a RockShox Recon Silver RL Fork with 140mm travel and lockout for versatile trail capabilities. The modern trail geometry ensures that this bike can descend with speed even on technical trails and still climb with ease thanks to the central seating position over the bottom bracket. Ride aggressively on trails all day long with the 1x11 speed Shimano Deore drivetrain which is efficient and smooth. Add in the Hydraulic Disc brakes for powerful braking and this bike is flat out fun, ready to corner with aggression and confidence. Spend all day riding with fixing points for two bottles and hidden rack, fender and kickstand mounts for anyone that wants to make this bike a capable commuter.

The 500 takes it up a notch from the Big Trail 400, moving from 10 speed to 11 speed with the excellent RockShox Fork. Move up the to Big Trail 600 and you get a Marzocchi Z2 fork and a 12 speed Shimano drivetrain with M4100 Hydraulic Disc Brakes. However the Big Trail 500 is more than capable for the rider looking to rip it up on the trails on a big and modern trail bike.
