The Merida eONE-FORTY 8000 is a brand new performance electric mountain bike built to crush climbs and maximise fun with its playful geometry. Built for trail and enduro rides thanks to its relaxed and versatile design, the eONE-FORTY really allows the built-in Shimano E800 drive unit to shine and give you an incredible trail riding experience. Merida has designed a carbon/alloy frame specifically for this bike, focusing on stiffness and reducing weight in the front triangle by using carbon and then using aluminium for the same proven durability as last years award-winning eONE-SIXTY.
Everything about this bike has been optimised so that you can make the most out of the Shimano e-bike components. Merida has designed a tough two-component battery cover to protect the battery and reduce noise, while a Thermo Gate near the head tube allows the motor to breathe and perform at its best in any conditions. Combine that with the Merida Expert eTR Cockpit which cleanly organises your e-bike cables internally and the 504wh Shimano battery really is optimised. The eONE-Forty is equipped with a 150mm Merida Expert TR dropper seat post with a Shimano paddle-style dropper seat post leaver, that fits neatly to the brake lever bracket underneath the handlebars for easy access and maximum performance. To truly take this bike to the next level Merida have fitted an aggressive downhill-specific 29” Maxxis DHF tyre on the front and a Maxxis DHRII 27.5” rear tyre for extra traction and an incredibly nimble and thrilling ride.
The Merida eONE-FORTY 800 is built for the rider that wants to perform at a high level on the trails with a bike that has a comfortable and secure feeling, yet still offers a playful and exciting riding experience. Merida has gone all out to maximise the benefits of the Shimano e-bike system to create a bike that delivers an unmatched look, feel and ability so that you can do it all on the trails, riding fast, harder and longer in style.
Expert TR Dropper Post: MERIDA dropper post allowing the rider to get the saddle out of the way when the gradient gets steeper, giving him/her more space to manoeuver and control over their bike. Our 150 mm post fits completely into the seat tube of an M size frame, while the L and XL frame can accommodate even a 170 mm dropper. As all our e-bike specced parts, it has been tested and certified for a 140 kg system weight.
Shimano Battery: Powerful internal lithium-ion battery that offers 504 Wh, charges up from 0-100% in 5 hours (when EC-E6000 charger is used) and retains at least 60% of its original battery capacity after 1,000 charging cycles. The aluminium cased battery is extremely compact allowing us to seamlessly integrate it into the downtube for ample space for the rear shock, added water bottle fixing points and plenty of top tube clearance. It has a waterproof design and is impact and vibration resistant.
Shimano Shifter-R and dropper seat post lever: Very compact and well-defined assist level shifter that helps to keep the cockpit clean and less clattered, while it also enables easy access to the Shimano paddle style dropper seat post leaver, that fits neatly to the brake lever bracket and is positioned underneath the handlebars.
