Merida One Forty Enduro Allmountain Bike 650B

During the Merida press camp in Mallorca we had the chance to test a prototype of the new One-Forty. With a bigger wheelsize (27,5″), updated geometry, a slacker head angle, longer top tube and a short 60-mm-stem the bike felt very promising and provided lots of fun on the trail. The new bike demonstrates Merida’s spirit and passion to build a modern, solid 145-mm-trail bike. Stay tuned for the next issue, where we put the Merida’s new One-Forty 650B through its paces!
