Merida One-Forty B at CUBE Active Savognin
On June 21, CUBE Active Savognin will be launching into the new summer season. Part of the action: the new 2014 bikes from Merida! Today we want to introduce you to the Merida One-Forty B. This full suspension bike in the all-mountain segment is following the industry trend of rolling on 27.5” wheels. The name says it all – the supplement “B” comes from “650B”, the old French tire sizing nomenclature. The frame and the entire geometry of the bike were completely reworked and optimized for the new wheel size. With 145 mm front suspension and 150 mm rear suspension, the Merida One-Forty B offers the best conditions for fun on the trail. The internally routed brake cables give the bike a super-clean look. The drivetrain groupset offers the convincing precision and quality one would expect from Shimano.
Our conclusion: with this bike, Merida has almost completed the step from a typical all-mountain bike to an enduro. Good-natured to pedal uphill, this bike shows what it’s capable off on the way down. But the One-Forty B isn’t just for MTB pros looking to tear up the trails. Its enduro ambitions also offer plenty of extra resources for a secure feeling in the saddle – perfect for beginners!
We’re already looking forward to testing the One-Forty B at CUBE Active Savognin. Stop on by after June 21! We’ve got lots of different Merida models waiting for you!
