MERIDA INDUSTRY CO., Ltd.
award 1

One of the most aerodynamic time-trial bikes available today; it combines an unbelievable adjustability to different racers physiognomies, performance levels and race distances, safe braking and advanced, electric shifting with total invisibly of the wires and battery.
Features:
- Wind-tunnel optimized, aerodynamic frame-design with special fastback wing-profiled tube’s cross-sections and seats-stay bending following the latest level of science;
- Integrated aero handlebar-stem and -bar with huge range of adjustment for maximum of versatility
- Full hydraulic activated TT brake system with superior modulation and brake performance,
- brake-cable, electric wires, battery for Di- electric shifting totally integrated in bar, stem and frame
Innovalue:
The most difficult challenge while creating a bike for time-trial and triathlon bikes is:
How can a bike-frame and -fork become as aerodynamically shaped as possible, while offering a wide range of adjustability for different riders physiognomies, level of performances, and different race distances?
Today, good performing TT-frames are either
- very aerodynamic optimized, but really limited in their range of adjustments
- or more versatile, but less aerodynamic due to external cable routing, improper stem/bar/frame transitions
A good overall result requires maximum adjustability of the handlebar and seat-post set-up, what is not easy to achieve with usage of standard components assembled to a TT-frame.
Thanks to our individual handlebar-system and pat-pended features (“Modular Head” adjustable head-tube system with 0 mm, 25 mm or 60 mm Module-elements”),
2 different shaped carbon-fibre base-bars,
stackable spacer system for the individual adjustment of the aero-bar extensions (0 mm to 120mm), and finally a length adjustable aero-stem (20mm adjustment range),
there are several hundreds of possibilities to set-up the handlebar and body- position to the riders anatomic and demands.

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…
