Merida Big Trail
The new updated Big Trail ticks all the boxes for UK hardtail riders, with 29" wheels, modern geometry and capable components.
First look video
The all-new Merida Big Trail is perfectly suited to be thrown around the trails, lifting the front wheel and flowing over features. Everyone loves a slack hardtail, this new bike certainly keeps you grinning.
Tredz product input
In 2019 we were invited along to the global launch of Merida’s 2020 range in Germany. After a full day of riding, the conversation moved to the possible creation of a hardcore hardtail for UK riders. With our input, all of our thoughts were eagerly scribbled down by Merida’s R&D guy Rey; 29-inch wheels, 140mm fork, boost standard, bolt-through axles, 1x drivetrain. The result is the all-new Big Trail, much loved by the press and ready to ride.
Geometry is the main defining aspect that dictates how a bike feels and its riding characteristics. The new Big Trail has a 65.5-degree head angle to handle the steep stuff, a steep seat angle to maximise pedalling efficiency and a short seat tube to help get the saddle low and out of the way. These features all make the bike feel fun and manoeuvrable over any terrain.
Components and spec
With fast-rolling big 29" wheels, wide and sticky Maxxis tyres, capable 140mm forks and slick 1x Shimano drivetrains all built around the light but strong aluminium frame with its modern geometry, the new Big Trail is ready to shred straight from the box.
Internal Cable Routing
Neat, tidy and rattle free. The cables and hose are routed through the frame. The cables and hose are protected from mud, grit and filth.
Up to trend and compatible with upgrades, the entire Big Trail range has Boost technology at the front and rear. The axle standard of 110 mm (front) and 148 mm (rear) allows for a wider spoke angle, meaning a stiffer and stronger wheel.
The Big Trail rolls on 29er wheels with huge tyre clearance to fit up to 2.5" tyres, allowing the newest wide trail tyres available.
Two bottle cage type bolts on the underside of the top tube give a secure, fit and forget option to stash your trail tools and spares.
Two bottle cage mounts
Say goodbye to sweaty backpacks on longer days with two bottle cage mounts. Carry twice the water or other bottle cage mount storage solutions. Benefit from the multiple positions to incorporate a frame bag along with a bottle cage.
SRAM UDH Hanger
The Sram UDH hanger is a new standard to simplify replacement. Offering unparalleled derailleur protection; it rotates rearward in the event of an impact.
