2018 Merida Big Trail 500


2018 Merida Big Trail 500 – 17″
RRP – £1350 Sale Price – £1150


With plus sized tyres and dialled trail geometry, combined with a 130mm travel suspension fork, the Merida Big Trail 500 is a hardtail MTB that gives full suspension bikes a run for their money. The 2.8” Maxxis tyres offer extra ‘float’ to soak up the bumps on the trail, as well as giving you more grip than the tyres you usually get on 27.5” wheels. The Merida Big Trail is ideal for taking on more challenging trail centre loops as well as adventurous cross-country cycling.
