Merida One-Twenty 400 – MY22/23 2022/23
Merida’s most versatile full suspension bike, as with all of the range, the One-Twenty is over forked running 130mm forks with plush 120mm rear travel.
The designers considered both riders and mechanics, delivering a playful modern trail bike with a slack head angle, low stand over height and short chain stays that’s easy to maintain.
The rear shock is held in place with trunnion mounts which due to the wider mounting increases frame stiffness and reduces shock wear. The designers can run shorter shocks and longer stroke allowing more scope for suspension tuning.
All key bolts can be adjusted from one side of the bike with a Torx 30 key without the need for removing the chain set to access the main pivot bolt.
While very much a trail bike at heart, the modern yet balanced trail bike geometry, paired with fantastic frame stiffness, created a mid-travel bike that is super capable on rough trails but also carries speed perfectly on less technically demanding tracks.
