What is the Trans-Mission? Trans-Mission is a completely new style of all- purpose mountain bike combining our LRS shotgun tube ‘enduro’ geometry chassis with 120 mm of extremely sensitive, SPV ‘bob-free’ travel at the rear, and a 130mm travel Manitou-SPV Minute or Black fork up front. During sprints and climbs you can get every ounce of energy converted into drive weather you’re climbing, descending or zipping through the singletrack. Imagine the manners of an XC racer and the ego of a downhill demon and you’re near to understanding the Trans-Mission…. Overall result: Our unique Trans-Mission can be ridden efficiently up down or across any terrain in the world, satisfying the desires of the ‘go anywhere –ride anything’ mountain biker, and look good doing it too. It is the first of it’s kind, and the last suspension bike you’ll ever need. Try one, we know you’re going to love it.

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…
