Merida Big Trail 600Regular price $2,499.95
The Big.Trail 600s lightweight alloy frame has a clean and simple look thanks to the internally routed cables and is perfectly paired with the legendary Marzocchi Z2 Bomber Air Fork. You're offered 140mm travel with an easy-to-use adjuster that offers 17 settings, while the all-new Rail damper ensures a smooth and plush ride regardless of the terrain or speed. Not only does this mean your arms and shoulders will be less tired, but you can also customise your ride to better suit your style, helping you to push your boundaries ever further! Before you know it, you'll be bombing down technical trails and sending it over huge gaps as you chase personal records! With the included Merida-branded long travel dropper post, standover height can be reduced allowing you to manoeuvre more easily as the trail gets more technical. While the modern trail geometry ensures that you can maintain control even when pushing your limit and yet still climb with ease thanks to the central seating position over the bottom bracket.
Merida has taken the liberty of upgrading the Big.Trail 600 to a 12 speed Shimano Deore drivetrain with remote actuated clutch, offering better ratios for trail riding, whether you're climbing or descending, you'll find you can keep going for hours on end without getting tired. With a better fork and drivetrain, Merida have recognised that riders will be going harder, so they've upgraded the Big.Trail 600 with Shimano Hydraulic Disc brakes. Not only does this result in increased braking performance, the Deore units also feature better modulation and won't fade after repeated braking, so you can brake later and harder as you chase Q/KOM status. Finally, the neat inclusion of multiple mounting points for bottles and hidden rack, fender and kickstand mounts means the Big.Trail 600 is just as capable out on the trails, as it is bike-packing or commuting.
