A great all-rounder with a sophisticated platform. The Merida One-Twenty 9.600 full suspension mountain bike is ideal for long hours riding trails in the mountains.
Constructed from a lightweight 6066 aluminium alloy, the Merida One-Twenty MTB is a lightweight-yet-tough little cookie that can hold its own with much bigger machinery. The sophisticated ‘Float Link’ suspension system allows the rear shock to react to even the smallest lumps and bumps in the trail, giving you complete confidence in the bike’s handling, whether you’re out on a long-distance marathon or shredding at a bike park.
Up front, the Manitou Mattoc Comp air fork comes with 130mm of travel that is both smooth and responsive. This is perfectly matched by the Fox Float Performance rear shock, which gives you three damping modes (Open, Medium, Firm) that can be easily switched from in the saddle.
Gears and brakes both come courtesy of Shimano. The 1×11 speed drivetrain is from Shimano’s SLX groupset, and promises quick and reliable shifting with every click. Shimano’s M500 bakes come with 180mm rotors that give you extra power to tackle difficult descents with.
