The “F” for “fork” indicates that the fork of our comfort racer RIDE shares a technological principle with the aero racer REACTO: best possible flexibility paired with maximum performance. “S-Flex” protects the REACTO’s rear end against hard impacts. In a similar way, the “F-Flex” fork of the RIDE ensures effective absorption of surface bumps. Besides comfort, this provides the pilot with extra handling safety.
Like WorldTour pro riders, more and more technology-loving road riders trust in Shimano’s electronic Di2 shifting system, which is characterized by high reliability and efficient, effortless operability. Bikes/frames with the symbol “Di2 Ready” are optimally prepared for the installation of this technology – especially with a battery mounting possibility below the chain stay or in the seat post.
With the “MERIDA Internal Blocksystem”, our R&D experts have found a smart, light and completely internal solution for protecting carbon frames against damage caused by handlebar impacts (e.g. in case of a fall). The easy to install and adjust system works with a clamping ring around the fork’s steerer tube. Once put into position with a bolt, it works together with blocking inserts to make sure the handlebar only turns up to a certain degree and stops just before it hits the frame.
Front fork made of carbon composite material; at some models 100% made of carbon composite.
Anti Wrinkle System – through three dimensional shaped silicone inserts, which will be removed after the manufacturing process, the internal surface of the carbon monocoque gets significantly improved. Less wrinkles create higher stiffness and improve durability.
Maximum comfort even at the rigid rear stays and forks of MTB hardtails or carbon road machines: Additional flax fibres in the carbon structure of the seat and/or chain stays and/or fork blades reduce high-frequency vibrations.
Special shaped seat- and/or chain-stays improve vibration-damping and create noticeable comfort.
Brake or shifting-cables routed internally through the frame’s tubes. Clean and improved outlook, wi
NANO-particles reinforce the epoxy-based matrix structure - for up to 40% improved hit-resitance.
Integrated reinforcing rib separates highly stressed carbon-tubes into 2 individual chambers; bending strength and hit-resistance are getting improved.
