Less weight, less drag and more comfortable too? It was thought impossible, but that is what the 5th-generation SCULTURA TEAM is from Merida.

This is the bike designed for our World Tour team and other road enthusiasts. Its race-winning heritage continues by already winning numerous World Tours including 3 titles of Grand Tour team classification in a row. Thanks to its outstanding performance, this bike is crowned with awards like BIKE OF THE YEAR 2022, d&i Awards 2022 Gold, etc.

Compared to its predecessor, the new SCULTURA TEAM frame is 4% lighter while easily achieving the 6.8kg UCI limit; drastically more aerodynamic by 10 watts thanks to the total integrated 1-pc cockpit, updated H/T & fork profile; noticeably more comfortable, meaning less fatigue, by reducing the vertical stiffness 38% with more tire clearance & more extended seat post exposure.

The end result: the class-leading, versatile and lightweight all-rounder with boosted ability to win at the highest-level race.

Founded by Mr. Ike Tseng in 1972, Merida is renowned as a reliable source for high-end bicycles & e-bikes in the global market. With an annual turnover of NT$32 billion in 2022, Merida shares more than 30% of Taiwan's bike exports and is honored as the top 10th Best Taiwan Global Brand according to Interbrand.

2 decades ago, cycling races became a strong part of MERIDA's DNA for success. A hugely successful mountainbike team established by Merida delivered numerous wins from World Cups & Int'l Championships. Then since the last decade, World Tour road cycling races has taken over the market attention and continue to inspire MERIDA fans all over the world.

When Taiwan's bike industry was struggling with relocation issue over the millennium, an industrial alliance A-Team created by Merida & its main rival turned it around and successfully kept the industry flourish in Taiwan.

Now we can look back with pride at what Merida has achieved over its 50-year+ history.


It all started half a century ago with an infamous sign stood at the front door of a bike shop in the United States, a sign stated “We don't repair Taiwan-made bicycles” (because of extremely poor quality). The sign was witnessed by Mr. Ike Tseng during his trip at that time and since triggered his desire to turn thing around. It was this obsession with quality when Ike set up a bike factory in 1972 named Merida. At the early age, MERIDA was a manufacturer offering its quality production facilities and solutions to other bike brands, that is so called the OEM business model. In late 1980s, aside from being just a factory, Merida started to turn its name into a real bicycle brand that stands for quality, durability, innovation and reliability. Now being a well-known and trusted name in the international markets, Merida is again honored as the top 10th Best Taiwan Global brands in 2022 with its brand value of USD467 million, which is evaluated by Interbrand.
