The brand new Merida eOne-Forty uses exactly the same frame as the eOne-Sixty but with a shorter shock stroke. The eOne-Forty 9000 uses the powerful Shimano Steps E8000 70NM motor and new integrated Shimano Steps E8035 504W battery. Modes are controlled by a Shimano Steps E8000 shift lever and key information is displayed on a colour Shimano Steps E8000 display.

Forged aluminium part integrated into the headtube. Works like a chimney so hot air can rise up and escape. When riding, heat build up from the battery is not usually an issue, but if the bike was laid in the sun for a long time heat could build up.
Mixed wheel sizes to get the best of both worlds. 29" front wheel for better ‘roll over
performance’ with a 2.5" wide tyre for precise steering. 27.5" rear wheel with 2.6" tyres give
maximum traction and comfort. The smaller rear wheel size allows shorter chainstays for a more agile and playful character.
To prevent the fork crown hitting the down tube we use an ‘Internal Block’ integrated into the frame. A clamp is installed on the fork steerer. If the steering angle is too extreme the clamp hits the rubber protection block inside the frame. Just in case the clamp does rotate on the steere, there's additional rubber protection under the head tube.
The internal battery can be accessed easily, pulling a rubber strap, sliding forward the panel and opening, the battery can then be removed by a small turn of an Allen Key (provided). But the battery doesn't need to be removed as a satellite charging port can be used.
Two part battery cover, the outer layer reduces noise through its soft material and tight fit, while the hard plastic inner layer gives it the structural shape. Key components i.e. the rubber strap and o-rings, can be replaced. Almost all connection points between battery and frame have a rubber layer between them too.
Bottle Bosses and Cable Routing:
A new clamp system makes it easy to organise and route cables inside the downtube whilst also providing bottle bosses on the outside. Bottle cages can be put in two positions. The upper one must be used when a piggyback shock is mounted. For Gen II a bottle can be mounted to all frame sizes.
If the bike has not been used for more than 6 months, or when the battery of the on/off switch is empty (this battery is normally charged by the main battery) it's necessary to wake the battery up again, simply push a 4mm Allen key (on the Merida Expert TR axle) through the hole on the downtube and press the hidden button underneath
