External butted head-tube with huge dimensioned 1.5” lower head-set and matching taper-steerer fork.
Through an delicate, hydraulic forced forming process 3-dimensional shaped tubes made of Prolite 66
MERIDA's Top-Alloy made of 6066 high-strength aluminum, with triple butted walls.
Smoothened welding line by using specific welding technology - improved outlook, without any weakening of the welding structure.
Brake or shifting-cables routed internally through the frame’s tubes. Clean and improved outlook, wi
Front fork made of carbon composite material; at some models 100% made of carbon composite.
Due to a large cable exit in the down tube, “Down Tube Exit” additionally puts an end to awkward handling of internally routed cables.
Of course, an aero bike has to offer best possible data in terms of aerodynamics. But at MERIDA, best possible adaptability ranges directly second. Because even superb wind-tunnel data can be useless if the pilot is not able to position her-/himself optimally on the bike and thereby produces an unnecessarily high air resistance. Thanks to the “Flip Flop” head for the saddle, the seating angles of our REACTO and WARP TT can be modified optimally.
The special “NACA Fastback” tube profiles of our WARP TT and REACTO base on the evaluation of data which were collected during comprehensive wind-tunnel tests (with and without pilot simulations). Particularly at the down-tube, seat-tube, and seat-stay sections, the drop-shaped tube designs with their cropped rear ends prove to be optimal in aerodynamic respect. This way, the essential factors of stiffness and aerodynamics can be combined ideally.
Designing high-end road bikes for a WorldTour squad is similar to the work of a Formula 1 team. You’re in it for the win, and even the most inconspicuous detail can finally result in decisive split seconds being lost. So the “Internal Clamp” of our WARP TT and REACTO is much more than just a technical exercise and visual treat: Our special seat-post clamping mechanism efficiently minimizes turbulences at the top end of the seat tube and thereby saves important power.
