Carbon frames are heading for the lead, and not just on the road. For XC MTB racing, Merida developed the ultimate "flagship models", because the best riders deserve the best bikes.

Merida full carbon MTB is the ultimate competition bike.

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.
