award 2

The TIME WARP TT is the new weapon for Bahrain-MERIDA when racing against the clock, faster and lighter than ever before. While keeping the strong points of the former WARP TT bike, which was successfully won Taiwan excellence GOLD award, TIME WARP TT has been fundamentally redesigned. Pushing the limits of UCI’s legality and manufacturing, all the cables run completely internally, from the new full carbon cockpit to the brakes and derailleurs.
The front- and rear brake are entirely covered for reducing unwanted turbulences. MERIDA designed cockpit has a one-piece carbon design taking advantage of the UCI’s 3:1 rule cancellation. Its cross-sections are as slim as possible providing the best compromise of aerodynamic and stiffness. TIME WARP TT redesign offers an overall advantage of 9 Watt and a weight saving of 400g compared to the old bike. TIME WARP TT has an integrated storage compartment, that offers space for an inner tube, CO2 cartridge or mini tool.

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…
