The Merida One-Twenty 600 is a dual suspension mountain bike equipped to eat trails for breakfast, lunch and dinner. With a triple-butted alloy frame, riders are offered the optimum blend of lightweight performance and durability. While Merida has utilised their proven Float Link suspension design to offer a stable and easily controllable platform that makes use of every millimetre of travel when it's required on demanding trails. Speaking of travel, the One-Twenty 600 offers 130mm of travel up front through the legendary Marzocchi Z2 Bomber matched with 120mm of articulated rear wheel travel thanks to the everpresent RockShox Deluxe Select+ Shock. Naturally, you're offered air suspension all around for improved damping and compression rates while lockout comes standard for incredible climbing performance.
Merida designed the One-Twenty 600 to offer a classic trail riding experience, yet remain focused on lightweight climbing performance. This might sound like a practically impossible task to achieve, however, the One-Twenty 600 really fits this bill. It's fast and agile on technically demanding trails and highly capable through rough and ready sections. Naturally, this can be attributed to the proven Float Link suspension, however, much can be attributed to the specs on offer. Indeed, with the impressive Shimano XT drivetrain offering a wide-range 12 speed drivetrain matched with the lightweight RaceFace Ride chainwheel, the One-Twenty 600s efficiency is unparalleled, whether you're on the flat or climbing steep mountain faces. Equally, the two-piston hydraulic disc brakes ensure riders remain in control thanks to their powerful application and easy two-finger braking levers. While an integrated dropper post offers you greater off saddle control for technical descents. Finally, large 29" Merida Expert TR rims with wide 2.35" Maxxis Forekaster tyres allow you to easily roll over anything in your way and provide superior cornering grip in all weather conditions.
