REACTO 7000

 

Top components in the form of SRAM's latest Rival wireless groupset and our SL45 wheelset paired with our test and award-winning REACTO frame make the perfect recipe for this top-level aero bike. This bike is made for racing.

Featuring our MERIDA EXPERT SL45 carbon wheelset and the latest SRAM Rival 12-speed wireless groupset with an integrated power meter, our REACTO 7000 is one of the top aero bikes in our line-up. If you want to win races or just be the fastest out of all your riding friends, this is the bike to get you there. The tyre clearance of up to 30 mm wide tyres and the well-proven MERIDA S-FLEX seat post for maximum comfort and limit fatigue.

Newly launched in 2021, the latest version of the REACTO took the cycling press by storm. A long string of test wins, perfect scores and awards confirm our successful symbiosis of the race-proven DNA of the previous model with the latest trends and technologies. Cycling Weekly calls it 'without doubt one of the most complete bikes available on the market', Cyclingnews 'an utterly brilliant and faultless machine' and Cycling Plus were 'hugely impressed'. From serious racer via enthusiast to the ambitious road rider, the REACTO is a great bike for many people. Its outstanding aerodynamic performance, reduced weight, sharp handling and super quick acceleration makes it the perfect bike for criterium racers and sprinters. At the same time, the class-leading comfort gives it the ability to play out its aerodynamic advantage also on the cobblestones – or the idyllic but potholed littered lanes of your favourite training ride.

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.

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

NANO MATRIX CARBON

To protect the integrity of carbon frames, the fibres are bonded together with an epoxy resin with added nano particles, increasing impact resistance by up to 40%.

IMAGE

AWS

When creating the individual carbon elements, an inflatable bladder is used to ensure there are no wrinkles inside the tube as these can add weight and create weakness. This results in a lighter, stiffer and stronger frame.

IMAGE

NACA FASTBACK PROFILE

The aerodynamics are based around a NACA0028 teardrop profile (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics) which is truncated. Air moves around the tube as though the missing rear section of the teardrop were still there, saving weight by using less material.

IMAGE

DISC COOLER

A forged aluminium component under the front and/or rear caliper allowing heat to dissipate through CNC-milled cooling fins. Tests show that temperatures are reduced by around 35 % and cooling times are shortened, optimising the performance of the brake.

IMAGE

INTERNAL CLAMP

Designing WorldTour bikes is similar to Formula 1: apparently nondescript details can result in saving split seconds. Integrated seat-post clamping minimises turbulence at the top tube.

WIRE PORT

MERIDA designed headsets that allow all control cables to enter the frame through the headset, creating a clean and uncluttered look, without making structural changes to the frame. Depending on the model, the cables are run completely internally (including bar and stem) or semi-integrated where the cables enter the frame underneath the stem.
