Anders Backe: Exploring the trails of Norway

What does a freeskier do when there’s no snow? If you’re Anders Backe, you take your MERIDA ONE-FORTY and head into the hills to carve dirt on the high mountain trails instead.

Anders is a longtime professional skier, so it’s second nature for him to be sending jumps and slopestyle features on the mountain in winter, but he’s also a keen and accomplished mountain biker come summertime. Using his ONE-FORTY to escape into the beautiful scenery in his native Norway, he rides to keep his skills sharp and his fitness high for when the snow returns.

We took a trip with him to high up above the fjords to soak up the stunning scenery in this beautifully shot video below, created by Say Mahalo.

With its new AGILOMETER sizing system, progressive geometry concept and FAST suspension kinematic, the new ONE-FORTY is an incredibly capable all-mountain bike that's ready to hit the trail. Find out more about the new bike and all the innovations by following the link here.
