eONE-FORTY

ONLY DOWNHILL FUN IS SO YESTERDAY

VIEW ALL BIKES

With the eONE-FORTY, we have an interesting companion to the eONE-SIXTY in the MERIDA performance e-mountain bike family. Due to its less aggressive geometry and the 140 mm travel, it is more uphill focused than its bigger brother. The lower front and the steeper seat angle make the eONE-FORTY a great climber. It is equally at home on long and demanding uphills as well at technical downhills and singletracks. The geometry and frame design give the bike a very playful character, which is precise and fast. Compared to the non-motorised all-rounder model, which very much inspired the handling and playfulness of the eONE-FORTY, the rider can enjoy the benefits of the hugely capable built-in new EP8 Shimano motor, which makes even demanding climbs an easy endeavour.

The last few years have shown that long travel e-mountain bikes are also often used as a kind of ‘SUV’ bike. Because of the advantages of more travel, bigger tyres and comfortable geometry, the eONE-FORTY also shines away from the trail and enduro tracks and offers a super fun, comfortable and capable alternative to a ‘normal’ mountain bike. We are convinced that the eONE-FORTY fits perfectly in this category as well and that it will find enthusiastic customers here too.

MERIDA bikes are known for: innovation, quality and outstanding performance, three attributes that also describe the carbon eONE-FORTY. It is a high-end state of the art e-bike. Material, design and integration are cutting edge.

INTENDED USE

Geometry, travel and specification make this bike perfect for trail riding but also for long-distance rides. It doesn’t matter if it's a playful trail or a multi-day ride across the Alps, the carbon eONE-FORTY is your faithful companion.

But besides its trail riding and long-distance abilities, the eONE-FORTY is also a hugely capable and enjoyable ‘SUV’ bike. Because of the travel, the comfortable and upright riding position, the eONE-FORTY gives a lot of confidence and offers a real alternative to a ‘normal’ mountain bike.

KEY COMPONENTS

Energy Guard

Two-component battery cover, which offers perfect protection for the battery. The softer (outer) layer reduces noises, seals the downtube perfectly and absorbs hits from stones easily, while the harder (inner) layer ensures that the battery does not get damaged and gives it the structural shape. All crucial parts like the rubber strap and o-rings for perfect fitting can be replaced.

Thermo Gate

Specifically located openings near the head tube which work like a chimney and allow the warm air to dissipate to guarantee the optimum operating temperature of the internal battery. The ‘Thermo Gate’ enables the battery to perform at its best, in any condition.

MERIDA EXPERT TR axle

Through axle with removable axle lever. The leaver (when inserted into the axle) allows easy loosening and tightening of the axle. When removed, it works as a 4 mm Alley key, perfect for tightening, for example, the seat clamp or the stem bolt, while also ideal for removing the battery or activating the 'wake up button'. 

Hidden kick-stand mount

The new eONE-FORTY frames offer hidden attachment points for a kick-stand underneath the chain stay, perfect for making the bike more versatile if used as an ‘SUV’ bike.

Shimano battery (integrated)

Powerful internal lithium-ion battery that offers 630 Wh (504 Wh in size S frames), charges up from 0-100% in 6 hours (when EC-E8004 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.

MERIDA EXPERT eTR cockpit

The EXPERT eTR cockpit offers internal cable routing for the e-system cables through the handlebar and stem for an extra clean and organised look. The new eTRII stem also features secure attachment points for the Lezyne front light via its unique clamping plate. As all our e-bike specific parts, the eTR cockpit is tested for a 140 kg system weight. 

MERIDA EXPERT TR dropper seat 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 150mm post fits completely into the seat tube of an L size frame, while the XL and XXL 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. 

Lezyne front and USB rear light

The 2021 eONE-FORTY carbon range features the new Lezyne Power Pro front and Femto rear light. The front light attached securely to our stem clamp plate, keeping the light perfectly fixed to the bike without cluttering the cockpit area. It draws its power from the main battery and can be easily operated from the Shimano display unit. The rear light is rechargeable (via a mini USP post), and perfectly capable of withstanding even the wettest of outings. Both lights offer excellent visibility during the day as well as evening and dawn rides.

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 cluttered, while it also enables easy access to the Shimano paddle-style dropper seat post lever, that fits neatly to the brake lever bracket and is positioned underneath the handlebars.

RIDE THE REVOLUTION

SHIMANO EP8 DRIVE UNIT

For 2021, the entire eONE-FORTY carbon range will be powered by the new EP8 motor from Shimano. The new power unit brings a long list of upgrades and changes to the table that will elevate our eONE-FORTY to the next level. The EP8 delivers a maximum power output of 85 Nm, which is an increase of 15 Nm from the E8000 unit. This will improve the performance on extreme terrain as well as lift up the other support levels, making them universally more cable and more fun to use. Paired with the new 630 Wh battery, the new EP8 system delivers a huge range extension, making it easier to cruise for longer or do more runs. 

Further to that, the new power unit has lost approx. 300 g in weight, has further improved its heat-resistance, allowing the rider to go harder for longer, has become quieter and smaller and has managed to achieve a 36% reduction in drag, making cruising about the cut-out speed even easier.  All this helps to deliver smooth, direct power to ensure that the rider is always in complete control while experiencing a natural ride feel.
