Who says the world isn’t flat? The world is flat – it is for the fans of the MERIDA SPEEDER. High speed, zippiness and agility on narrow, smooth rolling tyres is not reserved only for those who want to conquer the road with drop handlebars in their hands.
“The Speeder is a true road bike with straight handlebars”. It doesn't matter if the bicycle has a heart of ultra-light carbon fiber or is built of lightweight and robust aluminum: anyone who says the word “SPEEDER” is thinking of fun paired with speed and practicality that is higher than that of usual road bikes. In addition to the proven aluminum versions, with their downright suitability for daily commutes to the office, extensive training sessions, or relaxing leisure trips, the carbon versions ,which are new for 2016 are even more sporty. They share their stiff but extremely comfortable frame with the brand-new CYCLO CROSS and rely on its strengths: disc brakes and a 15 mm through axle on the 100% carbon fork (which is also new) ensure maximum precision while braking and maneuvering; furthermore, due to its 12 mm through axle, the rear wheel is wonderfully simple and is perfectly positioned with the rear disc brakes at all times. Internal cables*, 28 mm wide tyres with moderate profiles and the possibility of attaching fenders, a side stand, and/or a bike rack* mark the SPEEDER as an overall model that knows better than any other how to make everyday life extremely sporty.
