The Merida One Sixty 700 tackles technical trails and downhills with aggression for a ride that is full on fast. An aggressive ride comes from aggressive race-proven geometry with super short chainstays, longer reach and slacker head angles that add playfulness and agility to the lightweight alloy frame. The Marzocchi Z1 Fork with 170mm travel and trunnion mounted Fox Performance Float DPX2 Rear Shock form a winning combination. The Float Link Suspension ensures that that shock mount moves with the system for improved pedalling efficiency and plushness.
The 12 speed Shimano XT Drivetrain offers simple and efficient brilliance, perfect for tackling tough trails. While Shimano the SLX 4 Piston Hydraulic Disc Brakes give you braking control in any weather for improved confidence while you're rolling on 27.5" Maxxis Assegai Front Tyre and 27.5" Maxxis Dissector Rear Tyre for the optimal blend of speed and control. The 700 is a decent step up from the One Sixty 400, with the 12 speed XT instead of 11 speed Deore, as well as upgraded forks, rear shock and brakes for a ride this somewhat similar, yet crisper and more responsive on the 700. The Merida One Sixty 700 is a modern 12 speed MTB that is nimble and fun on the trails with spec that is capable of tearing up your local trails.
