Takes the air and lets you breathe. Even though they need air to breathe, racing cyclists don’t like its resistance. Oncoming air provides resistance, (about 73%); racers need to turn the pedals quickly to overcome this in order to attain their desired speed. Blessed is the rider on a MERIDA REACTO, which is one of the most aerodynamic road bikes in the world in 2016.
“Aerodynamics beat weight” was the conclusion of the internationally renowned German TOUR magazine in its comparative test of the best aerodynamic racers (TOUR 2-2015). TEAM LAMPRE-MERIDA has made the REACTO their standard bike. Every watt saved turns into valuable seconds and meters ahead of the competition. The REACTO has been developed by the knowledge gained from the development of the WARP TT time-trial in the laboratory and wind tunnel: striking “NACA Fastback” tubes, whose wedge-shaped tube profiles are flattened off at the rear, provide the aerodynamic basis, accompanied by direct mount brakes (the rear brake is also positioned out of sight beneath the bottom bracket), internal cables, as well as a perfectly integrated seat post that uses our “Integrated Clamp” and “Flip Flop Head” technologies. Thanks to the special “S-Flex” module, this bike provides a high level of comfort and is uncompromisingly trimmed for speed, which will take your breath away.
