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.
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.
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.
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 WARP TT, the TEAM LAMPRE-MERIDA trusts in an absolute specialist. To improve the rider’s position on the bike, MERIDA’s very own “Modular Head” system enables the increase of the effective head-tube length via special inserts (30 resp. 60 mm). With an adjustable stem, Di2 integration, variable armrests and aero bars, the “Modular Cockpit” of the WARP TT multiplies the options for individual adaptability even more.
Due to a large cable exit in the down tube, “Down Tube Exit” additionally puts an end to awkward handling of internally routed cables.
Via the special inserts of MERIDA’s in-house “Modular Head” system, the WARP TT’s effective headtube length can be extended by 30 respectively 60 mm. Therefore each pilot is able to find the optimal position according to her or his individual requirements. While spacer solutions do not affect the headtube stiffness at best, the latter is higher in case of our WARP TT because the inserts increase the support length.
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.
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.
