Merida’s ‘do it all’ bike. The One-twenty received a complete re-design for 2019, further improving the weight and stiffness while diving deeper into refining the modern trail bike geometry. All this culminates in a more capable Bike on rough trails while carrying speeds more efficiently on less demanding marathon or alpine tracks. Further than that, it also has become one of the fastest accelerating bikes around. A great all-rounder – made ever better.
The Merida One-Twenty 500 is built around a lightweight 6066 series aluminium triple butted and hydroformed frameset with smooth welding and features Merida’s smart entry internal cable housing. The tapered head tube provides precise steering, while the boost technology and rear through axel offers increased rear end stiffness for all round snappy handling. The essential dropper post is internally routed with a remote lever for a clean look and easier ‘on the go’ adjustments. The 120mm float link shock moves with the system to deliver on plushness and pedal efficiency.
