SCULTURA & REACTO
LIGHT, AERODYNAMIC, AND COMPETITIVE
Already the last version of our SCULTURA featured great stiffness and convincing comfort values. Weight and aerodynamics however still were improvable. Our engineers took the opportunity to develop this bike completely new from scratch. The result is an unprecedented masterpiece that sets new standards. The top-level version even is the lightest serially produced road bike in the world, at the time of writing. Thanks to a ground-braking production technology, the new “CF5” carbon frame weighs only 690 g in frame size S/M. Aero-values just below our REACTO and outstanding saddle-comfort give the SCULTURA an overall performance that has yet to be equaled.
Even more aero-oriented is the REACTO. Oncoming air provides the greatest resistance by far, with a value of about 73%. Racers need to turn the pedals quickly to overcome this in order to attain their desired speed. Blessed is the biker who does this on a MERIDA REACTO, once again one of the most aerodynamic road bikes in the world in 2016. Aggressive looks and geometry, high-quality specs and superb stiffness ensure that the REACTO simply takes your breath away – in the best sense. Striking “NACA Fastback” tube profiles, with a cut-off teadrop shape, are the aerodynamic foundation, joined by direct mount brakes, internal cable routing as well as a perfectly integrated seatpost with „Integrated Clamp“- and „Flip Flop Head“ technologies.
