The all-new ONE-TWENTY is the best all-rounder. This short travel trail bike (front 130 mm/rear 120 mm) is equally at home on long and demanding uphills as it is on energy-sapping straights as well as technical downhills and singletracks. The updated geometry and frame design gives the bike a very playful character, but it is still precise and lightning fast. Due to its low weight and fantastic power delivery, it is a hugely capable long distance bike. Equipped with a new oversized chain stay design, which increases the rear end stiffness of the frame dramatically and improves durability as well. The CF4 level carbon frame is around 400g lighter and impresses through increased stiffness and durability. The head tube angle has been slackened from 69 to 67.3 degrees, improving the descending skills of the ONE-TWENTY even further. The chain stays are 10 mm shorter resulting in a more playful bike which still offers the perfect balance between being a great climber and an agile trail bike

It all started half a century ago with an infamous sign attached to the front door of a bicycle shop in the US, stating “no repair for Taiwan-made bicycles” due to extremely poor bike quality. This was seen by Mr. Ike Tseng in his trip to the US at that time, triggering the desire in him to turn this around and improve the reputation of bicycles 'Made in Taiwan'. In 1972 it was this obsession with quality that led Ike to set up a bike factory named MERIDA. At the early age, MERIDA was a manufacturer offering its quality production facilities and solutions to other bike brands, that is so called the OEM business model. In late 1980s, aside from just a factory, Merida started to turn its name into a real bicycle brand that stands for quality, durability, innovation and reliability. Now being a well-known and trusted name in 70 countries, Merida is listed to the top 10 Best Taiwan Global brands in 2021 with a brand value of USD448 million as evaluated by Interbrand.
