Merida One-Forty 800 2018



Today’s trail bikes become more and more versatile, capable and fun to ride. What used to be the perfect bike for a ‘long day in the saddle’ is able to perform at the highest level on the most demanding trails today. The ONE-TWENTY is one of the most capable mid travel bikes the MERIDA full suspension range has ever seen, and the ONE-SIXTY enduro machine which was only introduced in 2017 not only won various tests and press accolades but also changed the perception of the MERIDA brand amongst trail and enduro riders.

After the successful introduction of the ONE-TWENTY (introducing ‘Float Link’ rear suspension) to the MERIDA line-up which was closely followed by the test winning ONE-SIXTY enduro machine, it was just a matter of time to close the gap between these two top performing bikes – welcome to the new ONE-FORTY.

ONE-FORTY - the latest addition to our float link equipped full suspension trail bike line-up and the perfect all day bike if you like your trails to be challenging. A brand new aluminium bike combining all the latest design thinking that can deal with far more than the 140 mm travel label suggests. Our super price aggressive trail weapon is more capable than a ONE-TWENTY but more agile than a ONE-SIXTY.

While taking lots of influences from the test winning ONE-SIXTY, it was important for us to have a noticeable difference to our enduro machine. The goal was to have a more playful bike than its bigger brother. For that reason, we reduced the wheelbase and steepened the head angle. However, we still maintained the attributes of a modern trail geometry. The rider sits more ‘within’ the bike, and all sizes feature the same short stem setup.

To avoid hitting obstacles with your cranks or bottom bracket while pedalling through rock gardens and more demanding trail sections, we have deliberately positioned the bottom bracket a little higher. This should avoid going over the handlebars because you got stuck on roots or rocks. However, the bottom bracket is still low enough for the rider to feel perfectly ‘centred’ within the bike and to keep cornering as surefooted as you would expect.
