REACTO DISC 8000-E wins Design & Innovation Award 2018

After our eONE-SIXTY 900-E won the prestigious Design & Innovation Award in 2017, we are super excited to have been given the 2018 award for our new REACTO, to be precise for our REACTO DISC 8000-E.


‘When it comes to riding performance, the MERIDA REACTO Disc 8000-E clearly sets itself apart from the competition. The precise and smooth handling inspires confidence on downhills, while the stiff frame with its well-thought-out spec accelerates fast. Despite the deep aero rims, this 7.67 kg disc aero bike climbs superbly. Clever features such as cooling fins on the brake pads, a simple seat-clamp, and the integrated FSA cockpit prove that the engineers at MERIDA fully understand the needs of the modern racing cyclist. And if that wasn’t enough, the € 6,499 MERIDA REACTO Disc 8000-E is also astonishingly comfortable, which is a huge advantage on longer rides. If this version is not “pro” enough for you, the REACTO is also available in the BAHRAIN MERIDA team edition.’

The international cycling press has shown their appreciation for the new REACTO from the launch onwards, but it is always very exciting to win a highly sought after award like the Design & Innovation Award.
