Through some mechanical pressing-operations 3-dimensional shaped tubes made of Racelite 6061 alloy.
External butted head-tube with huge dimensioned 1.5” lower head-set and matching taper-steerer fork.
Due to a large cable exit in the down tube, “Down Tube Exit” additionally puts an end to awkward handling of internally routed cables.
Rear suspension often causes problems with the rear shifting cable (e.g. formation of loops, abrasion/friction, undesired shifting) which are caused by movement during compression. Thanks to a double break via special sleeves (“Double Stop”), MERIDA keeps the defined cable length constant.
This rear end construction features a “floating” shock: The lower mount moves together with the system and offers very sensitive response characteristics. In addition, engineers are able to influence transmission ratio and progression in an optimal way. In practice, a “Float Link” rear end feels like having more travel than it actually does. Finally, the omission of the shock mount in the main frame provides a clean look.
Brake or shifting-cables routed internally through the frame’s tubes. Clean and improved outlook, wi
Smoothened welding line by using specific welding technology - improved outlook, without any weakening of the welding structure.
MERIDA's Top-Alloy made of 6066 high-strength aluminum, with triple butted walls.
Direct assembling of the disc-caliper at the frame’s rear drop-out – simplified adjustment of the caliper.
12mm thru-axle with 142 drop-out width: Increased stiffness and perfect disc-rotor position, no tools required for wheel disassembling.
