Merida combines German design and engineering with Taiwanese production expertise to create a wide range of high-quality bikes that provide outstanding value for money. Merida uses the Shimano STEPS system on all their eMTB and touring e-bikes. The eBIG hardtail eMTB models are a great alternative for the commute over less than perfectly smooth roads. The eBIG TOUR 600 EQ comes with the all-new Shimano STEPS EP8 drive unit and the new, fully integrated 630Wh battery for enormous range as well as the new Shimano Deore M5100 11-speed gears and Shimano Deore M4100 4-piston hydraulic brakes for ultimate stopping power. Being an EQuipped model, it has everything you need for a comfortable commute including mudguards, rear carrier and integrated lights!
