Offering exceptional value, the BIG.TRAIL is the perfect alternative to a full-suspension bike for riders on a budget or those seeking a closer connection to the trail. With the third generation, MERIDA have refined the geometry for more confident handling and made numerous improvements to enhance the overall riding experience.


Since its debut in 2016, the BIG.TRAIL has been a standout success, quickly becoming the leading mountain bike in several of Merida's key markets. The previous generation brought 29er wheels to the trail hardtail segment, earning praise for its innovative geometry and outstanding value. It became a favourite among riders and received widespread acclaim from the press.

The latest version builds on this success, offering even more fun on the trails. The updated geometry features a slacker head angle and increased reach for impressive stability, while a steeper seat angle ensures a comfortable and efficient riding position. The new frame also includes detailed improvements such as clean cable routing and enhanced frame protection, giving the BIG.TRAIL a premium look that belies its affordable price.

This winning combination of modern trail bike geometry, long travel forks, and chunky 29er wheels delivers exceptional handling, the ability to tackle obstacles with ease, and impressive cornering grip. The new BIG.TRAIL continues to be the top choice for trail riders around the world, providing an unbeatable mix of performance and value.
