  • Whether you are looking for a top equipped companion for your daily commute, a comfortable yet speedy bike for your weekend adventures, or a versatile touring machine, the CROSSWAY 500 delivers precisely that. Equipped with a high-quality drivetrain, lockable suspension fork, powerful disc brakes and a wide range of gears, the CROSSWAY will get you to work quickly as well as tackle some more demanding hills with ease.

    The CROSSWAY family has been the MERIDA range's backbone since its introduction. They are used worldwide and are proven as a reliable, versatile and fun-packed way of getting around. Designed to provide a comfortable place to take in the surroundings thanks to an upright riding position and comfort focused equipment such as suspension fork, suspension seat posts and adjustable stems, they offer the perfect blend of comfort, enjoyment and all-round functionality. They are suitable for fitness training, commuting and leisurely rides through forests and on trails. Made from high-quality, lightweight aluminium with the ability to mount mudguards, racks and kickstands, the CROSSWAY range is the perfect choice for everyday riding. The fitted 700c wheels cover ground quickly, while the extra volume of the 40 mm wide tyres offers puncture protection, grip and comfort. All CROSSWAY models are available as a low step-through frame, making mounting and dismounting straightforward.

    X-TAPER HEADTUBE

    Our X-Tapered headtube offers the space for a tapered fork to be fitted. Tapered forks offer superb stiffness and precise and deliver confidence-inspiring steering.

    SMOOTH WELDING

    Sometimes called ‘double pass welding’, a second pass over the weld gives a clean organic look to the frame. At first glance, you will be convinced it is carbon.

    INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

    Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.

    IMAGE

    DOWN TUBE EXIT

    Ensures that internally routed cables and wires can’t move freely and remain easily accessible for servicing.

    RACELITE 61 ALUMINIUM

    We use a minimum of 6061 aluminium. The pay back is that it’s possible to make lighter and more advanced frames. We use an additional heat treatment and double-butted wall thicknesses to produce light and stiff frames.

    TFS - TECHNO FORMING SYSTEM

    Technoforming is a mechanical forming process, shaping the tubes by using negative moulds, at times combined with an internal metal core.

    F-MOUNT

    ‘F-Mount’ equipped bikes have integrated fittings for mud guards (some bikes require model specific mud guards), making fitting fast and simple.

    IMAGE

    K-MOUNT

    Integrated mount on the chainstay to fit a MERIDA kickstand (or any commercial kickstand).

    C-MOUNT

    ‘C-Mount’ equipped bikes have the fixing points for a rear rack already integrated (some bikes require model specific rear rack), making fitting fast, simple and reliable.
