Originally launched in 2011, preceded the ‘trend’ of aero bikes in the peloton. The biggest breakthrough for our REACTO was the launch of version II in 2013, in line with the launch of TEAM LAMPRE MERIDA. The REACTO II was a purebred aero bike particularly aimed at sprinters and breakaway riders.
Thanks to utilising many details we’ve originally developed for our TT-bike WARP TT, the aero-performance was absolutely state of the art. The REACTO II had the 2nd best aero-values at the largest aero-bike wind tunnel test in 2014, initiated by German TOUR-magazine. It also impressed with great head tube stiffness and amazing power transfer.
For the model year 2018, we are introducing the all NEW REACTO III - the lightest, fastest and most comfortable aero road bike in MERIDA’s history. Our development focus was very broad with the intention to improve aerodynamics even further, make the frame lighter without loosing stiffness, offer a disc brake option and besides all this keep the bike easy to maintain and service.

It all started half a century ago with an infamous sign attached to the front door of a bicycle shop in the US, stating “no repair for Taiwan-made bicycles” due to extremely poor bike quality. This was seen by Mr. Ike Tseng in his trip to the US at that time, triggering the desire in him to turn this around and improve the reputation of bicycles 'Made in Taiwan'. In 1972 it was this obsession with quality that led Ike to set up a bike factory named MERIDA. At the early age, MERIDA was a manufacturer offering its quality production facilities and solutions to other bike brands, that is so called the OEM business model. In late 1980s, aside from just a factory, Merida started to turn its name into a real bicycle brand that stands for quality, durability, innovation and reliability. Now being a well-known and trusted name in 70 countries, Merida is listed to the top 10 Best Taiwan Global brands in 2021 with a brand value of USD448 million as evaluated by Interbrand.
