Since its launch, our REACTO has made an impressive career. Intended as a team bike for our LAMPRE-MERIDA pro riders from the start, it had specifically been designed for special tasks such as sprint stages or probable solo escapes. But already in its second year, the REACTO was embraced as the “standard working tool” by the team. And also in 2015, it remains the top choice of our pro athletes.
The Carbon version of the REACTO was designed in elaborate processes, meticulously optimized in the wind tunnel and then knighted by professional utilization. Currently, it is regarded as the world’s fastest aero bike with a convincing amount of comfort. With a weight of just 1.000g and “NACA Fastback” tube profiles, the carbon frame reaches optimal aerodynamic data. These are perfected by a specially designed full-carbon fork (an in-house development) with an extra-wide fork-blade gap for laminar airflow. Directly amounted brakes (the rear one is hidden below the bottom bracket), internal cable routing and the specifically integrated “S-flex” seat post round off the REACTO’s aero profile. But the concept does offer even more: The seat stays with “Bio Fiber Compound” technology are attached in an extra-low position and ensure top-notch comfort on the level of a “conventional” road bike.

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…
