Confident trail performance. The Merida Big Trail 800 is a hardtail mountain bike with a long travel fork and p 27.5+ wheels for a more capable ride on challenging trails.
The lightweight aluminium alloy frame features dialled trail MTB geometry with 130mm of suspension travel up front. The slack head angle is combined with a longer top tube and short stem to offer a stable, confident ride on the descents while still getting you to the top of the climbs efficiently.
Plus sized B+ (27.5”+) wheels with 2.8” wide tyres offer extra ‘float’ which means you get a bit more cushioning over roots and rocks as well as extra grip. The RockShox Yari RC fork up front offers plush and composed performance for taking on all the hits on the trail.
The Shimano SLX 1×11 speed drivetrain offers slick shifting over a wide range of gears with secure chain retention and silent running. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes deliver confident stopping while the dropper post means you don’t need to stop and drop your saddle before the descents.
