Merida downhill bike
Comprehensive suspensions with 120 mm travel are probably more functional mountain bikes possible. The all new ONE-TWENTY isn't any exemption to that. Light and nimble in uphills, agile on singletrails, and excellently capable and quickly during downhills: in this manner, our R&D experts performed recognize this category already in the last design years. Using completely reworked ONE-TWENTY, MERIDA actually will not keep this course but interprets it in a considerably much more playful and modern fashion. So today, two interesting years of R&D work arrive at fruition the brand-new 2015 bicycle period!
Apart from its new design, larger tires would be the most obvious feature of the ONE-TWENTY: The wheelset measurements of 27.5” gets increasingly more established. By using this standard, our marathon/tour totally combines brilliant moving overall performance and unlimited agility. Currently this standard idea characterizes the bike as a really omnipotent companion – even for really challenging trips on demanding surface.
Although most likely most renewable novelties regarding the 2015 ONE-TWENTY issue its geometry along with the kinematics associated with completely redeveloped framework. With a markedly steep seating position of 74.5°, this bike underlines its undoubted need to convince not only in downhill course: many great uphill biking enjoyable is offered, too. Primarily responsible for this is basically the brand-new rear end – just one pivot and linkage system that has been combined with “Float Link” technology the very first time. During uphills, the trunk end remains superbly basic and stays practically clear of drivetrain impacts (even in lockout mode or with no optionally activatable system damping). In downhill mode, the framework characteristics will vary: The moderate 120 mm vacation regarding the brand-new ONE-TWENTY provide plushness of 130 mm. The device works so sensitively that its nearly full not enough pedal bob or brake diving merely astonishes. In fast downhills, the level steering direction of 68° comes into play. Also, our experienced R&D specialists have actually provided all design variations with a brief 70 mm stem (aside from frame size S: 60 mm) which carries a pointedly wide handlebar. Consequently, the brilliant downhill performance varies far over the degree of an average marathon/tour fully.
Besides these basic traits, the 2015 ONE-TWENTY shines with step-by-step solutions each and every type – which backs this up newcomer’s popular to range one of the better of its group all around the globe. For instance, the engineers of our R&D department have equipped the rear end with a 12 mm “E-Thru” axle that offers – besides maximal rigidity – the trouble-free installation and demounting of this backside wheel. Simultaneously, they have put a further focus on the bearings of this rear stay: Thanks to a double-bearing connection within dropout which holds the brake mount, irritating sound development during braking is avoided successfully.
This new ONE-TWENTY enters the 2015 season additionally with new technologies which are real in-house advancements and they are and genuine benefits for some other MERIDA complete suspensions. Because of “Down Tube Exit”, all cables/wires routed inside the frame come to be readily available. “Double Stop” avoids undesirable shifting-cable action during surprise compression – which prevents scratching within framework and “ghost shifting”. Furthermore, the lockout cable is routed towards shock by the new “Guided Remote” technology. This idea can be so innovative that lockout does not just work excellently in almost every situation but does even be a genuine eye-catcher regarding cycle aswell.
Our 120 mm full suspension system ONE-TWENTY (new concerning 2015) is a confidence inspiring 27.5“ trail/tour bike best providing the
demands of most bikers who are seeking optimal trail driving enjoyable both up- and downhill.
