Packed with quality components and some clever suspension wizardry, the Merida One-forty 700 full suspension mountain bike is the trail MTB weapon you’ve been looking for.
The latest Merida One-Forty MTB features an all-new frame, made from a 6061 series aluminium alloy which has been hydroformed to create a complex shape that has been carefully optimized for strength and lightness. The frame tubes are triple butted, meaning the wall thickness is reduced three times along its length, which makes sure there is no excess metal along the tube in places where it does nothing to aid strength.
The One-forty’s ‘Float Link’ suspension system mounts the rear shock between two floating links, rather than fixing one end rigidly to the frame. This makes the suspension highly sensitive to small bumps, and gives precise control over the leverage rate. For enhanced steering precision, the One-forty features a tapered head tube that’s both stiff and strong, and boost thru-axles front and rear which maintain rigidity at both ends of the bike. Cables are routed through the frame internally, and feature Merida’s smart cable-entry system to eliminate rattles.
Up front, Merida have given the One-forty 700 a RockShox Revelation RC Air fork that has 150mm of smooth travel, with an easily adjustable external rebound damping control. At the rear, the 140mm wheel travel is taken care of by a Fox Float Performance shock, with three lever-selected modes and adjustable rebound damping.
Equipped with Shimano’s flagship XT M8000 1×11 speed drivetrain, the Merida One-forty 700 delivery rapid and precise gear shifting that promises to never miss a tooth. Shimano also take care of the brakes, as the M500 discs bite down on 180mm rotors to give you ample stopping power on any descent.
For a fun & confidence inspiring ride, it has to be the Merida One-Forty 700 full-sus mountain bike.
