The test crew of UK Mountain Bike Rider (MBR) magazine have been waiting for the new ONE-FORTY for a while and have been eager to see if their very positive opinion of the test winning ONE-SIXTY (see MBR test here) would translate to the mid travel platform. To cut a long story short - it has.
'With great pedalling efficiency, brilliant suspension and top fun handling, the new One Forty is going to further boost Merida's growing reputation.'
'...whoever's in charge at Merida's Stuttgart HQ clearly knows their stuff, and this is now the third new Merida in a row that I've totally fallen for.'
