The sitting position on the MERIDA eONE SIXTY 800 combines a steep seat-angle (75°), long head-tube (140 mm) and long reach (460mm in an L), combined with a short 35 mm stem. The sitting position is very centred and upright. Optimal weight distribution between bars and saddle allows for long, pleasant hours of riding. In Trail-Mode, the Shimano motor delivers its power effectively and suits pretty much 90 % of all riding situations, which makes switching in between modes almost redundant. The MERIDA is great on the climbs as well as excelling on downhill sections too. With short 439 mm chainstays, the bike literally carves through corners and makes direction changes quick, easy and precise.
