Clean styling with a vintage edge.
As an innovative brand that has always had a significant influence on the world of cycling, MERIDA is certainly the exact opposite of what is popularly known as “always living in the past”. But there is one thing we can’t help feeling when looking at the urban landscape: retro is en vogue! Therefore, all friends of vintage trends and classic cycling can look forward to a suitable MERIDA counterpart on 700c wheels in the 2016 models: the CROSSWAY URBAN.
The most striking feature of all the brand-new CROSSWAY URBAN models is their noticeable reduction to the basics on the outside. All models are equipped with a derailleur that significantly facilitates everyday riding and employ super-modern technologies such as disc brakes, but all of these convenient features are “hidden” beneath its vintage appearance. As a result, the CROSSWAY URBAN is the ideal companion for everyone who has decided to forgo the annoying and time-consuming daily commute in a car, as well as the hassle of finding a parking space, and who recognize that there are a lot more reasons to spend time on a bicycle rather than off it. Bikes that are deliberately designed for everyday use have several obvious intelligent details: threaded axles and a seat clamp without quick release provide reliable theft protection, and the stiff carbon fork (depending on model version) as well as the internally routed cables are evidence of an exciting combination of yesterday and tomorrow that modern urban cyclists can already indulge in today.
