Structure Element
 

MERIDA carbon frames are ultra-resilient and as light as possible. This is enabled by the intelligent connection of the single segments via Tube-to-Tube technology or internal sleeve sockets – always optimum as required by the individual load profile.

Carbon Fork
 

MERIDA carbon forks perform with outstanding vibration damping as well as with superb braking and lateral stiffness. Reliable steering and braking performance in every situation.

 

 

TFS - Techno Forming System

Characteristics such as low weight still grant aluminium a strong position in frame manufacturing. Modern 3D shapes can be created by the mechanical TFS moulding process. Material: Racelite 6061 aluminium.

HFS - Hydro Forming System

The mechanical TFS process works from the outside to the inside. In contrast, the complex Hydroforming concept shapes the frame by pushing hot oil under hydraulic high pressure from the inside to the outside. Material: Prolite 66 aluminium.

Racelite 6061 Aluminium

Superbly solid and light alloy known from the aerospace sector. MERIDA makes the aluminium subject to an additional heat treatment. Thanks to double-butted wall thicknesses it is ideal for the production of light and stiff frames.

Prolite 66 Triple Butted Aluminium

MERIDA ’s premium alloy represents extremely durable and light aluminium of high-end quality. Triple-butted wall thicknesses result in exciting frame designs and offer an optimum Stiffness-to-Weight (STW) ratio.

Shotgun 6061

The bottom side of MERIDA’s characteristic down tube features a specifically engineered twin profile. This enhances the bending and torsional stiffness perceptibly and measurably. This is an optimum solution for sporty aluminium bikes.

X-Taper Headtube

Externally butted headtube with a 1.5“ steering bearing at the lower end and a weight- saving 1 1/8” steering bearing at the upper end; delivered with matching tapered steerer fork. This results in: Superb stiffness and precise steering performance.

Smooth Welding

Besides top functionality, MERIDA frames also offer a pleasing visual appearance. The second welding process during Smooth Welding evens the connecting welding seam – an elaborate concept for a brilliant look without compromise to stability.

 

 

K-Mount Drop-Out

Specifically designed brake disc dropout aluminium frames with integrated mounting and the possibility for HEBIE rear stay kickstands. Also for optimum torsion stiffness during tough braking – safety plus!

Internal Cable

Elaborately shaped frame designs with special inlets and outlets for internally routed brake and/or shifter cables. “Clean” in a double sense: The bike looks uncluttered while the cables are protected effectively from moisture and dirt.

Lockout

The suspension fork and/or the shock unit of your MERIDA bike can be locked directly by moving a lever. This provides an optimum setup for rides on bumpy surfaces or for powerful sprints – and not only during steeper uphill passages!

Remote Lockout

The suspension fork and/or the shock unit of your MERIDA bike can be locked comfortably from the handlebar via remote lockout. An ideal feature especially for (racing) cyclists who require super-fast switching between open and locked mode.

Thru Axle 12-142

This torsion-resistant thru axle with a diameter of 12mm is used for broad 142mm rear stays. It performs with a perceptible increase of stiffness, tool-free wheel mounting and an ideal brake rotor position.

Post Mount Disc

The friction-free alignment of the brake caliper is considerably eased by the direct mounting of the post-mount caliper at the rear dropout. Adaptable to different brake disc sizes thanks to the utilisation of different dimensioned adapters.
