KEY FEATURES

  • SUPERLITE 16 ALLOY 2017
    You can always go lighter…? At least with regards to aluminium the internal competition of the MERIDA developed ‘Racelite 61’ and ‘Prolite 66’ is already immense. But our ‘Superlite 16 Alloy’ pushes the bench mark even further. This new high-end grade of aluminium enables super thin wall thicknesses yet delivers amazing strength – ideal for demanding off-road usage. Used for the first time in 2017 in the rear triangle of the new ONE-SIXTY.
  • AWS 2018
    When creating the individual carbon elements, an inflatable bladder is used to ensure there are no wrinkles inside the tube as these can add weight and create weakness. This results in a lighter, stiffer and stronger frame.
  • CARBON FORK 2018
    Carbon forks provide superb vibration damping and precise steering. All road bikes feature a full carbon fork; the steerer and fork blades are all made of carbon.
  • X-TAPER HEADTUBE 2018
    Using a tapered head tube with 1 1/8″ bearings in the top and 1 1/4″ or 1 1/2″ in the bottom creates superb stiffness and precise, confidence inspiring steering.
  • NACA FASTBACK PROFILE 2018
    The aerodynamics are based around a NACA0028 teardrop profile (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics) which is truncated. Air moves around the tube as though the missing rear section of the teardrop were still there, saving weight by using less material.
  • INTERNAL CABLE 2018
    Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.
  • DI2 READY 2018
    Bikes/frames with the symbol ‘Di2 Ready’ are prepared for the installation of Di2 technology with battery mounting in the seat post or within the fork steerer.
  • DISC COOLER 2018
    A forged aluminium component under the front and rear caliper allowing heat to dissipate through CNC-milled cooling fins. Tests show that temperatures are reduced by around 35% and cooling times are shortened, optimising the performance of the brake.
  • 12-142 THRU-AXLE 2018
    Selected front forks use a 100 mm wide through axle 12 or 15 mm in diameter to increase lateral stiffness. A 142 mm wide 12 mm rear axle fixed directly into the frame increases rear end stiffness whilst simplifying wheel removal and replacement.
  • 12-100 THRU-AXLE 2018
    Selected front forks use a 100 mm wide through axle 12 or 15 mm in diameter to increase lateral stiffness. A 142 mm wide 12 mm rear axle fixed directly into the frame increases rear end stiffness whilst simplifying wheel removal and replacement.
