Merida Carbon Crash Replacement

Accidents can happen. Whilst a Merida carbon frame helps provide competitive advantage, the inherent material properties of carbon fibre can severely compromise the structural integrity of the frame when subjected to impact.

From the 2011 model year, we offer the original owner of any Merida carbon frame a crash replacement carbon frame at 50% of the normal retail price in the event of an accident.

The Carbon Crash Replacement Claim Process

If you’ve sustained crash related damage to your Merida carbon frame, please return the frame with your original proof of purchase to an authorised Merida stockist for inspection.

If the damage is deemed to have compromised the integrity of the frame, an equivalent crash replacement frame will be offered at 50% of normal retail price.
