SUPERIOR AERODYNAMIC PERFORMANCE
Wind resistance is the enemy of the road cyclist, stealing speed and energy. Meet the solution; the REACTO. Superior aerodynamic performance means it slices through the air with scalpel-like precision. But our aero bike delivers more than just finely tuned air cutting ability, with impressive aero bike comfort, razor-sharp handling, integration of the latest technologies and an impressive list of World Tour victories. And the international cycling press has confirmed its class-leading performance by awarding our REACTO multiple 'Best in Test', 'Editor’s Choice' and 'Gear of the Year' accolades.
PRECISE HANDLING AND RELENTLESS ACCELERATION
From serious racers via enthusiasts to ambitious road riders, the REACTO is a great bike for many people. Its outstanding aerodynamic performance, reduced weight, sharp handling and rapid 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.
FEATURES & INNOVATIONS
CLEAN DESIGN AND OPTIMISED AERODYNAMICS
With a clean design, optimised aerodynamics, cockpit cable integration, tyre clearance for up to 30 mm wide tyres, the well-proven MERIDA S-Flex seat post for maximum comfort and for an aero road bike very lightweight frame, it offers everything a modern aero bike needs to bring to the table.
TEMPERATURE REDUCTION FOR STABLE BRAKING PERFORMANCE
The second generation DISC COOLERS are perfectly integrated into the frame and fork to minimise aerodynamic drag while reducing the risk of the disc brakes overheating on long and demanding descents. The forged aluminium parts under the front and rear disc brake caliper draw heat away through CNC-milled cooling fins, giving up to 35% less heat build-up and faster temperature reduction for stable braking performance.
The fork and frame allow tyres of up to 30 mm to be fitted which, besides the well-proven S-Flex seat post, further improve the comfort as well as the road grip of the REACTO.
One of the key elements of the REACTO that helps deliver impressive aerodynamic performance is the complete cable integration, hiding all cables from view and wind exposure and generating a 2 Watt saving.
The one-piece handlebar-stem combination offers outstanding aerodynamics and weight savings while giving the rider total control. All cables run through the carbon cockpit for a sleek and unclutters look and aerodynamic efficiency.
The direct mount gear hanger reduces moving parts at the derailleur end and improves shifting accuracy as well as aiding fast wheel changes.
INTEGRATED THROUGH AXLE
The latest standard front through-axle with an into the fork leg integrated thread reduces turbulence and drag while providing a super sleek appearance.
REMOVABLE THROUGH AXLE LEVER
The REACTO features 12 mm bolt through axles for greater wheel stiffness and precise disc alignment when replacing wheels. The lever (when inserted into the axle) allows easy loosening and tightening of the axle with its 6 mm Allen key. When removed, it works as a 4 mm Alley key, perfect for tightening, for example, the seat clamp or the stem bolt.
SEAT POST CLAMP
A hidden seat post clamp helps to keep lines smooth and uninterrupted as well as reducing turbulence around crucial parts of the bike.
The well-proven S-Flex seat post provides the REACTO with outstanding comfort. While being an integral part of the overall aerodynamic concept of the REACTO, its 'thinning' gives it compliance which is comparable with a 27.2 mm round carbon post. So, it combines comfort with class-leading aerodynamics.
IMPROVING AERODYNAMICS WAS THE MAIN TARGET IN THE DEVELOPMENT PROCESS OF THE LATEST REACTO.
With its predecessor delivering almost unrivalled aerodynamic performance, this was one of the most difficult jobs in the overall development process of the REACTO IV. But being at the sharp end of bicycle development, even the most incremental improvements of certain aspects can deliver real progress when looking at the end result.
For developing the current REACTO, aerodynamic performance was for sure one of the key points. But during the development process, we never lost sight of its overall performance. So the goal was not just to make it even more effective in the fight against the wind, but to increase its overall performance and to make it a faster bike in every situation. Stiffness, lightweight, comfort – these demands don’t always go hand in hand with achieving aerodynamic perfection – so the challenge was to find the perfect compromise amongst all these possibilities.
With the 4th generation REACTO, we created a great performing all-rounder – with class-leading aerodynamic performance.
