award 2

Aerodynamic shaped road-bikes are getting a new trend at the road-bike market. Merida is catching up this latest trend with the new REACTO, where we combine the ultimate technical performance of our traditional shaped Scultura EVO frame in terms of weight/stiffness with the “speedy” frame-design of our TT and triathlon-frame TIME-WARP.
Road cyclists having a sense for esthetical and fast looking bike design, but intending to make any compromise in terms of technical performance, such as low weight, ultimate stiffness and getting reasonable comfort at the same time.
Adapting the latest technologies, such as 1.5” taper steerer forks, perfect fork to head-tube integration, internal cable routing and an one-piece/integrated looking aerodynamic shaped seat-tube and seat-post, which still offers a regular way and range of the seat-adjustments in all directions. Bio “Flax”-fibers used at seat-post and seat-stay offer superb damping characteristics at high frequency vibrations.
Aerodynamic shaped road-frames are looking fast and aggressive, but offer lower technical figures due to their teardrop shaped tube-profiles; cause by the same reason, they offer as well less comfort at fork and seat-post. Due to the technical skill (Double Chamber technology) at frames DT and the forks’ blades, the frame’s stiffness is at the same ultimate level as at the best performing, conventional shaped road pro-frames. As well the frame’s comfort being limited at traditional aero-products is great thanks to the well balanced sue of Bio “Flax”-fibers.
In general, Carbon bicycle frames and not designed and manufactured under the perspective of being low cost, environment protection and energy saving – they are designed for ultimate performance as high-end sports goods. But good designed and manufactured carbon-frames are extremely long-lasting, different to an aluminum frame having always a limited life-time in terms of fatigue to pedaling forces.

Whenever we create a bike, it means much more than working on a particular project or suspension platform: we tell a story. Because also in 2015, each of our numerous models is packed with thousands of thoughts and ideas, countless discussions and hours of concentration and refinementM
began in 1972. The founding of Merida Industry Co., Ltd., dates back as far as to that year. Equally far back reaches the tradition that we feel obliged to the three Chinese syllables “Me-Ri-Da”. 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. Many steps lie between then and today. But with each single bike, we once again start with the first step…
MERIDA. MORE BIKE.
