Australian Mountain Bike Magazine: Which Merida eMTB is right for me?
With two carbon-framed dual suspension eMTBs in the stable, how do you choose between the Merida e160 and e140?
Find out which Merida E-bike is best for you.
AMB take a look at the differences between the two new pedal-assist MERIDA mountain Bikes that have just been released the all-new eOne-Sixty and a new eOne-Forty.
The Merida eMTB details
"When the Merida eOne-Sixty hit the scene, heads turned and people noticed the incredible value, high level spec and progressive geometry throughout the range. Fast forward a few years, and the eOne-Sixty has evolved further, heading down the highly competitive E-Enduro path and opening up a space for the eOne-Forty. Both bikes share the same frame but are fitted with a different travel forks and shocks to not only change the travel but alter the bikes geometry."
The Merida eOne-Forty
Merida has set out to make the eOne-Forty more “uphill” focused getting the rider into a more efficient and forward position riders will be in a more comfortable position for extended climbing periods.
With less travel and slightly steeper angles the eOne-Forty will likely get more economical power consumption figures and more agile handling characteristics than its counterpart.
If you are looking for an eMTB for adventure, enjoy fast flowing singletrack and on occasion get a bit rowdy then Merida’s eOne-Forty could be the ebike for you.
The Merida eOne-Sixty
The E-Enduro ready eOne-Sixty is lower and longer than its predecessor moving to a shorter 165mm crank and using the same tried and tested alloy rear triangle as the old eOne-Sixty, strength and durability for longevity or charging demanding terrain is what its built to do.
