“Built around the new Shimano EP8 motor and the new 630Wh battery pack, this gives the bikes more power and more range – likely welcome news for those are in the market for a new full suspension e-MTB…With a bit less travel, a lighter Fox 34 fork and tighter geometry, the eOne-Forty aims to deliver a more agile ride on the trail.”
The Merida eOne Forty 8000 is a dual suspension bike built for an agile ride utilising Shimano’s brand new EP8 Technology. The eOne Forty uses a high-quality carbon-alloy frame which combines the durability of alloy and the lightweight design of carbon. The Shimano E8036 630Wh drive unit (E8035 504Wh Battery for the small size) is integrated into the frame for a clean look and balanced feel. The 630Wh offers 25% increase in capacity over the older 504Wh model, matched with the brand new Shimano EP8 Motor which replaces the older E8000 motor. This motor brings software that allows you to adjust the support levels of each assistance mode from your phone to suit your personal needs and preferences. It also packs a bigger punch with 85 Nm and is also lighter by 300 grams for a swift ride.
You know that the e-bike components on this bike are awesome, but so is the rest of the spec on this bike. The FOX Rhythm 34 Float eMTB+ Fork brings 140mm travel to tame the trails and help give this bike some punchy personality when matched with the FOX Performance Float DPS Rear Shock with 133mm travel. The Shimano XT shifters and rear derailleur offer smooth shifting, while the Shimano SLX 4 Piston Hydraulic Disc Brakes give you all of the stopping power to control this beast and ride with confidence. Add to that the hand picked Continental Trail King 29×2.4” Front Tyre/ Trail King 27.5×2.6” Rear Tyre combination to ensure that this heavier full suspension e-bike offers precision, playfulness, and traction on the trails.
It’s all finished off with a Merida Expert TR Dropper Post so that you can get out of your seat and really let it rip. The Merida eOne Forty 8000 is definitely agile for an electric bike, giving you excellent feel for the trails with all of the power from the Shimano STePS e-bike technology.
Comes equipped with the new EP8 motor from Shimano STePS. It offers an increased performance of 85 Nm, less weight, a further reduction in size and less friction. On top of that, the new internal battery offers an extended range and super-fast charging capabilities.
To give the e-full suspension bikes precise steering, fantastic ‘rolling over obstacles’ behaviour yet maximum traction, we have combined a 29er front wheel with a 2.5″ tyre and a 650B rear wheel, equipped with a slightly wider 2.6″ tyre. The perfect combination of precision, playfulness and traction. process.
First introduced in 2015, the e-bike version of the ‘Internal Block’ is incorporated directly into the frame and prevents the fork crown from hitting the frame in case of a crash or an extreme steering angle. As an extra protection, there are additional rubber bumpers on the frame to avoid any frame damage from the fork crown.
