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.

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.
