The Merida One Forty 400 is the starting point in the One Forty Range but this bike is still a loaded all mountain bike with excellent versatility. The alloy frame has a well-balanced reach and a lower centre of gravity and when you add in the short stem and wide handlebars it delivers a confident and playful ride. The trunnion mounted lower shock mount moves with the system to deliver plushness and pedalling efficiency, making the most of the Suntour Unair TR LOR8 rear shock with lockout. The Suntour Aion35 EVO LOR Fork (51mm offset) with 150mm travel is more than capable and helps give this bike cutting dowhnhill performance.
The One Forty 400 has a simple 1x11 speed Shimano Deore drivetrain for a smooth ride and excellent efficiency. You'll be able to really let it rip and ride with your own style thanks to the Merida Comp dropper post, a handy inclusion for the aggressive mountain bike rider. The Tektro M275 2 Piston Hydraulic Disc Brakes give you unmatched responsive control that will impress and allow you to ride in complete control. The Kenda Regolith 27.5x2.4" give you combination of speed and control when matched with the Merida Comp Rims. Step up to the One Forty 600 and you get a higher end 12 speed drivetrain instead of an 11 speed drivetrain, with slight component improvements across the bike. However, the 400 is still a great bike for the majority of riders as this is an all mountain, all conquering beast ready to tame any trail with a blend of speed, control and comfort.
