The One-Forty 400 brings an unheard of level of climbing and descending performance into a high-value package built around an all-new aluminium frame. It’s got the same ground-breaking geometry as its more expensive brethren, just paired with kit that delivers the performance you need, without the price tag. Dropper posts on all models, a wide-range 11-speed Shimano drivetrain and no-nonsense suspension from RockShox and Suntour gets the job done without fuss.
The new Merida One-Forty is the ultimate trail bike, made for the toughest trails in the world. It’s the pinnacle of modern trail riding, with a super-steep 80° seat angle, low front end and bottom bracket allow it to clear the most technical climbs, while longer reach figures across all sizes and a well-balanced 65° head angle mean it’s still more than capable of ripping any descent. With Merida’s new Agilometer sizing system, riders can run a longer or shorter reach frame independently of their height, with suspension that becomes more progressive as you size up to better cope with heavier/harder riders. Merida’s engineers have focussed on weight reduction and rolling speed too, for improved efficiency. All bikes come with long travel dropper posts, Wire Port cable routing and a reliable threaded bottom bracket plus carbon frame models have on-board tool storage and FidLock magnetic bottle cages.
