The 2023 Merida eOne-Sixty is the headline grabber of the Merida ebike range; the eOne-Forty shares exactly the same frame and design features but has different ride characteristics.
The shock stroke on the eone-forty is shorter, reducing rear travel to 133mm and creating a steeper seat angle. The shorter 140mm fork extends the reach, delivering a slightly steeper head angle.
As someone who has had the opportunity to ride and test out this bike, I can confidently say that it is one of the best electric mountain bikes on the market today.
One of the standout features of the eOne-Forty 400 is its powerful and efficient electric motor in the shape of the Shimano ep8 85nm motor and bigger 630wh battery (with the exception of frame size - s which uses 504wh). The motor is also very responsive, providing a smooth and natural-feeling assist that makes it easy to climb up and over obstacles on the trail.
In addition to its powerful motor, the eOne-Forty 400 also boasts some impressive components that make it a joy to ride. The RockShox suspension system provides a smooth and comfortable ride, even on rough terrain, and the Shimano Deore brakes provide excellent stopping power and control. The bike also features a high-quality Shimano Deore 1x12 drivetrain, which offers plenty of gear options for tackling any terrain.
One thing that really impressed me about the eOne-Forty 400 was how easy it was to ride. The bike is well-balanced and handles beautifully, even at high speeds. The frame is lightweight and durable, and the tires provide plenty of traction on the trail. Overall, the eOne-Forty 400 is a joy to ride and makes even the toughest trails feel like a breeze.
In conclusion, the eOne-Forty 400 is an excellent electric mountain bike that offers top-of-the-line performance and features. With its powerful motor, high-quality components, and easy-to-ride design, it is the perfect bike for serious riders who want the best possible experience on the trail. If you are in the market for a high-end electric mountain bike, then the eOne-Forty 400 is definitely worth considering.
