Like the vast majority of e-hardtails, the eBIG.NINE 700 feels most at home on paved or gravel bike paths.
As a component giant, Shimano is mostly known for its dominant position in bicycle gears. But with the EP801, the Japanese are clearly showing that they can look beyond their own plate too. Even nasty steep sections are effortlessly climbed by the motor. The Shimano EP801 conveys a riding feeling. Whoever enjoys longer tours will be pleased with the good range.

At a glance

The most importanten ratings of the eBIG.NINE 700 (EP801) in comparison to the competitor bikes of following categorie: (4000) .

The good SR Suntour fork dampens small and medium bumps confidently when mountain biking. At the brakes, Merida middle class four pistons brakes with small 18 brake rotors by Shimano are used. Taking a holistic approach also includes looking at the gearing and components. The components are of good qualtiy and offer no reason for criticism here. When it comes to the geometry, Merida does not go completely crazy. The head tube angle and reach values were chosen with care. The result: A balanced riding behaviour with a good combination of playfulness and straight-line stability. Overall, the Merida developers have done a great job with a very god geometry.

Conclusion


Expirience with the Merida eBIG.NINE 700 (EP801)

Overall, the eBIG.NINE 700 is, due to an excellent geometry, a good fork and a good groupset is a good all-rounder for trips on forest paths and easy trails. Only a middle ground motor and an average brake system slightly tarnish the otherwise successful overall picture. Praise-worthy: 25 years of Warranty on the Frame!
