The Merida One Forty 700 Dual Suspension Mountain Bike is an impressively versatile bike that balances speed and efficiency with comfort. 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 Rock Shox Deluxe Select+ rear shock. The Marzocchi Z1 Fork with 150mm travel is more than capable and helps give this bike cutting downhill performance.
Like all modern trail bikes it has a lightweight and simple 1x12 speed drivetrain, with a combination of Shimano SLX and XT components 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 Expert dropper post, a handy inclusion for the aggressive mountain bike rider. One of the standout components is the Shimano SLX 7120 Hydraulic Disc Brakes which offer unmatched responsive control that will impress. The Maxxis Minion 27.5x2.5" front tyre and Maxxis Dissector rear tyre were specifically selected for a combination of speed and control when matched with the Merida Expert Rims. Ultimately the Merida One Forty has an outstanding suspension setup that is matched with balanced handling for a dynamic dualie that won't let you down.
