Tough, dependable and ready for whatever trail adventure you can think of. The One-Forty 700 marries a high-value all-aluminium frame to high-performance equipment that won’t let you down. Merida’s radical new trail geometry delivers the sort of climbing ability that would make a mountain goat proud while shaming enduro bikes with descending speed. Wide range, 12-speed Shimano drive and four-piston brakes, high-performance Marzocchi and RockShox suspension plus our long travel adjustable dropper post deliver unwavering performance.
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.
