X-TAPER HEADTUBE 2017 The best of two worlds: externally shaped head tube with bigger diameter at the bottom and weight saving smaller diameter at the top. ‘X-Taper Headtubes’ always come with tapered forks or correct adapters fitted. Result: superb stiffness and precise steering even in the toughest conditions without increasing the weight of the frame unnecessarily.
C-MOUNT 2017 A bike can be so much: Leisure partner, sports equipment, simple way of transport…and all these have in common that you might need to carry something. Let it be the briefcase on the way to the office, the daily shop or maybe even your kids on a suitable child seat. The requirement for all of these is a rear rack - MERIDA bikes with a ‘C-Mount’ have fittings for a rear carrier (some of our models require model specific rear carriers) already integrated, making adding one super fast and simple.
F-MOUNT 2017 The nicer the weather the more fun you have riding your bike and vice versa. This simple formula stays true till a nice looking and technically well functioning solution for integrating mud guards on your bike is found. MERIDA bikes with ‘F-Mount’ have fittings for mud guards (some of our models require model specific mud guards) already integrated, making adding them super fast and simple.
DI2 READY 2017 Like WorldTour pro riders, more and more technology-loving road riders trust in Shimano’s electronic Di2 shifting system, which is characterized by high reliability and efficient, effortless operability. Bikes/frames with the symbol “Di2 Ready” are optimally prepared for the installation of this technology – especially with a battery mounting possibility below the chain stay or in the seat post.
K-MOUNT DROP-OUT 2017 Specifically designed brake disc dropout at aluminium frames with inte- grated mounting possibility for HEBIE rear stay kickstands. For optimum torsion stiffness also during tough braking – a perceptible safety plus!
INTERNAL CABLE 2017 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.
SMOOTH-WELDING 2017 Besides top functionality, MERIDA frames also have to offer a convincing visual appearance. The second welding process during Smooth Welding evens the connecting welding seam – an elaborate concept for a brilliant look without compromises to stability.
PROLITE 66 TRIPLE BUTTED ALUMINUM 2017 MERIDA’s premium alloy represents extremely durable and light aluminium of high-end quality. Triple-butted wall thicknesses result not only in exciting frame designs: First of all, they offer an optimum Stiffness-to-Weight (STW) ratio.
HFS - HYDRO FORMING SYSTEM 2017 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.
POST-MOUNT DISC 2017 The friction-free alignment of the brake calliper is considerably eased by direct mounting of the post-mount calliper at the rear dropout. Adaptable to different brake disc sizes thanks to the utilization of differently dimensioned adapters.
REMOTE LOCK-OUT 2017 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) bikers who require super-fast switching between open and locked mode.
