Merida combines German design and engineering with Taiwanese production expertise to create a wide range of high-quality bikes that provide outstanding value for money. Merida uses the Shimano STEPS system on all their 2021 e-bikes. The eONE FORTY full-suspension eMTB has been updated for 2021 with the new Shimano STEPS EP8 drive unit and extra large, fully integrated battery with 630Wh capacity. With 140mm travel, this bike is a real all-rounder. The 700 model features the Merida Lite III aluminium frame, a 12-speed Shimano XT M8100 drivetrain and the powerful Shimano SLX 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes.
