Merida’s all-new MISSION CX is a Design & Innovation Award 2019 winner. It combines thoroughbred cyclocross racing genes with a long list of features which make it a sophisticated “all-round” bike.
While this bike presents a UCI-certified frame for cyclocross racing, MISSION CX can also be customized for day-to-day commuting with plenty of unique features as follows:
Merida CF3 carbon frame with carbon dropouts: ‘Nano Matrix’ for extra impact resistance; tapered head tube and 142x12 mm rear through axle provides rigidity and steering precision. ‘Smart Entry’ Internal cable routing, removable seat stay bridge and mudguard mounts.

They mean nothing less than each of our bikes has to be an equally beautiful and sustainably valuable bike which carries it’s riders to her/his destinations as pleasantly as possible – in the narrower as well as in the wider literal sense.
