MERIDA BIKES

2013


What would the world be without its inventors, idealists and “garage engineers”? When Karl Baron of Drais invented the archetype of the bicycle in Germany some 200 years ago, he surely didn’t anticipate how successfully following generations would refine the “Draisine” (named after its creator) up to today. Probably, Drais didn’t even care about this: Like many inventors, he was motivated primarily by the sheer idea and not by success or wealth. But with his “walking bike”, he nevertheless created something that would be a huge plus for the world. As company founder of the Merida Industry Co., Ltd., also Ike Tseng (1932–2012) has created something which has changed the world to some extent via the power of inventive genius. Because when Ike Tseng established the first Merida plant in Yuanlin (Taiwan) in September 1972, also he was not driven by ambition for success or wealth but by a question of honour: While travelling through the USA a little time before, Tseng had come across a US bike shop whose entrance sign stated unmistakably that any repair of Taiwanese bikes was strictly refused there – due to the unacceptable quality of the latter. Nearly defiantly, the then 40-year-old Tseng decided to change exactly that issue and founded a bike company with the objective to improve the quality level of Far East bikes in a lasting and effective way. Today, the Merida Industry Co., Ltd. annually produces 2.4 million bikes at three locations and is therefore Taiwan’s second-largest manufacturer – of course with toplevel quality standards! At the Merida Industry Co., Ltd., these brilliant 40 years of tradition and experience in the production of first-class bicycles represent many aspects: From the close teamwork with the R&D department in Germany and the cooperation with premium suppliers up to the actual manufacturing (managed by experienced experts at modern workplaces), each and every realization step of a Merida bike is performed meticulously on premium level…

Development

Quality has many faces: At MERIDA, experienced experts from Germany and Taiwan work in close coordination. The history of every MERIDA bike begins just about 100 km away from the place where the history of the bicycle started in 1817: Directly outside of Stuttgart, the heart of Germany’s vehicle development stronghold is not only the home of technology leaders like Porsche or MercedesBenz – also the designers and engineers of the MERIDA R&D department are located there. Here, all MERIDA bikes are invented, planned and constructed for international distribution in 68 countries of the world. In doing so, our developers have to consider not only a lot of different requirements: Simultaneously, they have to guarantee that each bike of every category is completely worthy to carry the MERIDA emblem in the end. No matter if highend MTB, professional carbon road racer, reliable E-bike or “carefree” beginner model: Only the best constructions are accepted and manufactured in cooperation with premium suppliers. For smooth functioning of these closely coordinated processes, the German R&D team travels to Taiwan regularly. There, our experts discuss and inspect each single development step together with local specialists – always from the first prototype up to the perfected serial model.

Teamwork Whenever a new MERIDA bike is created, all involved experts cooperate closely right from the outset: Developers, suppliers and manufacturers. 2

Production

The heart of every bike is the frame. A great feeling if its creator is an absolute expert in terms of premium frame materials. Each fully assembled bike leaving one of the three MERIDA plants in Asia is really unique: Because as soon as it is on the way to its new owner in one of 68 countries around the world, not only the German R&D department has breathed life into the bike. Instead, each and every staff member involved in the manufacturing process has guaranteed that a genuine MERIDA has been produced with highest possible care. In this regard, the Merida Industry Co., Ltd. does not only look back on a 40-year experience in utilizing classic raw materials such as aluminium alloys which require elaborate processing: To achieve highest possible general quality with respect to the creation of high-end carbon bikes, the company decided to cooperate solely with premium suppliers which are specialists for composite materials. Only this way MERIDA is able to ensure that cuttingedge frame technologies (e. g. hydroformed aluminium tubes or carbon frames manufactured by “Double Chamber” technology) guarantee reliable and longlasting bike fun – in each category and for every rider.

Precision Work Modern high-tech carbon frames, elaborate welding on aluminium frames or hydroformed tubes: A MERIDA is produced at premium quality level.

Finishing

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder” – how comforting that skilled expert eyes look thoroughly at every MERIDA bike. As a matter of course, the uniqueness of a bike differs it from another one. Example: In all categories, MERIDA delights with cutting-edge technologies which other bikes don’t offer – no matter if aluminium or carbon versions. As heart of every MERIDA bike, the frame is configured contemporarily by experienced industrial designers and carries a lot of brilliant technological innovations (e. g. “Double Chamber” reinforcement ribs, “Flex Stay” seat and chain stays, the “M.O.R.E.” suspension system or the visionary utilization of Bio Flax fibres). But the frame is not the only element turning each ride on a MERIDA into a truly unique experience. All MERIDA models get their individual “colour dress” in a state-of-the-art painting line. Then, sophisticated decals are attached by complex precision work to provide each model with its matchless look. The last step is a protective clear coat layer which conserves the elaborate visual appearance. So with much attention to detail, a complete department exclusively guarantees that a MERIDA can be recognised already at first sight as something it really is: An individual piece of bicycle history!

The Finishing Touch Elegant finish for high-tech: Finally, the complex paintwork and the decals reveal at very first sight what your bike really is – a genuine MERIDA!. 6

Construction

A MERIDA bike is more than just the sum of its parts – because it carries the soul of everyone who has built it for you. A MERIDA bike is more than just the sum of its parts – because it carries the soul of everyone who has built it for you. No matter how many technological features hide in a premium frame, no matter how expressive its decals and how fascinating its finish might be: There’s still a long way to go until this construction element can be moved over roads, country lanes or trails. Because only the bike’s complete assembly provides each MERIDA with the vitality and soul you want to enjoy during your daily rides. From in-house spoking of the wheelset and the professional mounting of drivetrain, brake or shifting system up to the final quality inspection: Via their know-how and experience, countless MERIDA staff members ensure that only reliably assembled and inspected bikes are packed into the MERIDA cardboard boxes which arrive at your specialist retailer – thousands of kilometres from place of origin, but only a few weeks later. Then, after a last expert check by your retailer, the MERIDA bike of your dreams is finally ready for countless hours of pedalling fun. Ride your MERIDA – FEEL THE HEAT

Utmost Attention Before your MERIDA is shipped in its transport box, it is assembled and checked competently according to strict standards – for your fun and safety.   9 


Toughness test

Innovation is the motor of all technological progress – at MERIDA represented by the pro riders of the MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM. This procedure is nothing new for all those steering a car or motorcycle: All vehicle buyers benefit from innovative technologies which have first been tested and utilized in the racing circus already years ago, then have become exclusive parts of the respectively favoured brand’s luxury models. As soon as such features have proven their reliability in a successful way, also the more economical vehicle series successively benefit from them. This valuable experience plus can be transferred to the bike sector in the same way – given that the respective bike brand has a successful pro athlete team that is competent in terms of bike technology, tests new developments during tough races and is also qualified to give important feedback to the R&D experts. At MERIDA, this highly valuable know-how has been represented by the successful squad of the MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM since 2002. Our pro riders do not only enrich new and further developments with the comprehensive input they have gathered on the planet’s most challenging race courses: Their impressive successes also demonstrate that bikes with the MERIDA emblem range among the world’s best. Or are there any other explanations for our Olympic Gold and Silver medals, World, European and National Championship titles, countless World Cup wins and many triumphs at fiercely contested stage races…?

MERIDA Features

Our technologies your benefits

MERIDA bikes are true technology carriers: Each bike of every category represents the complete know-how of our experienced engineers. This detailed overview informs you about all sophisticated features of your MERIDA – and about the innovative technologies behind.

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 individual load profile.

AWS – Anti-Wrinkle-System During the production of a carbon monocoque frame, the use of special mould inserts additionally improves the frame’s inner surface quality considerably and reduces wrinkling. This means: Stiffness and durability increase, weight decreases.

Double Chamber Technology Different physical loads act on different frame sections. So in case of MERIDA carbon frames, a special reinforcement rib is integrated in all frame segments which receive high loads (e. g. the down tube). The two chambers increase the bending stiffness.

Nano Matrix Carbon Carbon is a synonym for carbon-reinforced synthetic material. MERIDA reinforces the carbon mat’s epoxy resin matrix by adding special nano particles. This increases the impact resistance by up to 40 % – because higher durability means higher safety.

Flex Stay MERIDA enhances the riding comfort of a hardtail rear stay by specifically shaped seat and/or chain stays which offer perceptibly higher vibration damping – for optimum transfer of pedal power.

Carbon Fork Rigid carbon front fork, in case of some models realized as full-carbon version. MERIDA carbon forks delight 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.

Prolite 66 Triple Butted Aluminium 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.

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 ideal for the production of light and stiff frames.

MATTS Taper Top Tube Special „Shotgun“ top tube of the MERIDA MATTS models with tube cross sections tapering in forward and rearward direction. This unique profile provides brilliant bending and torsion stiffness at very low weight.

Shotgun 6061 The bottom side of MERIDA’s characteristic down tube features a specifically engineered twin profile. This enhances the bending and torsion stiffness perceptibly and measurably. Optimum solution especially for sporty aluminium bikes.

14  MERIDA Features


Egg-Shape Headtube MERIDA uses this elliptic headtube to achieve optimum headset stiffness – and therefore reliable steering and braking characteristics. Convincing performance thanks to semi-integrated bearings and centrally enlarged tube profile.

Cone-Head Headtube Conically shaped headtube with tapering in upward direction and a specific profile which guarantees convincing headset characteristics at reduced weight. The lower end features a semi-integrated headset, the upper end an exterior version.

X-Taper Headtube Externally butted headtube with a mighty 1.5“ steering bearing at the lower end and a weightsaving 1 1/8” steering bearing at the upper end; delivered with matching Taper Shaft fork. Results: Superb stiffness data and precise steering performance.

Smooth Welding 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.

K-Mount Drop-Out Specifically designed brake disc dropout at aluminium frames with integrated mounting possibility for HEBIE rear stay kickstands. For optimum torsion stiffness also during tough braking – a perceptible 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 e. g. for rides on bumpy surfaces or for powerful sprints – 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) bikers who require super-fast switching between open and locked mode.

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

Post Mount Disc The friction-free alignment of the brake calliper is considerably eased by direct mounting of the postmount calliper at the rear dropout. Adaptable to different brake disc sizes thanks to the utilization of differently dimensioned adapters.

M.O.R.E. Suspension MERIDA offers M.O.R.E. – „Merida Optimized Ride Engineering“. All full-suspension bikes constructed with supported single-pivot system provide the same perfect kinematics in terms of sensitivity and drivetrain neutrality – of course in all frame sizes.

2 x 10 MTB Today, double cranksets are a completely accepted MTB standard and favoured not only by racing riders. Faster and especially fewer shifting operations at the chain ring e. g. result in fewer “chainsucks”. Superbly suitable if there are no extreme uphill passages.

Modular Head Time trial or Triathlon? Drafting allowed or forbidden? There are many influences to be considered to determine your best seating position on a aero bike - “Modular Head” lets you add or take away 40 millimeters to and from your head tube length without losing any performance regarding steering and breaking performance.

VPK – Virtual Pivot Kinematics MERIDA’s original rear stay system characterizes all full-suspension bikes of the 140, 160 and 180 mm category. Due to the virtual pivot, VPK offers outstanding sensitivity in combination with optimum drivetrain and braking neutrality.

Bio Fiber Damping Compound Maximum comfort even at the rigid rear stays and forks of MTB hardtails or carbon road machines: Additional flax fibres in the carbon structure of the seat and/or chain stays and/or fork blades reduce high-frequency vibrations.

Fork Travel Hardtail Indication of the maximum fork-travel at bikes with suspension-fork.

Front / Rear Travel Suspension Indication of the maximum fork- and rear-wheel travel at bikes with full suspension.

Technical Features

Big ninety-Nine

Bikes of the 100 mm category are the fastest choice for full-suspension attacks on the racing track. Twentyniners enable higher downhill and cornering speeds. In addition, they offer more uphill traction – voilá: The BIG NINETY-NINE is a thoroughbred 100 mm Twentyniner!

When MERIDA introduced the new race fully NINETYNINE in early 2012, it was clear right from the start: This bike would not only ride into the top ranks on the world’s race courses but would also enthuse the bike press once again. Exactly that happened – directly after introduction, one successful test chased another (e. g. in bike 10/2011: “With the NINETY-NINE, MERIDA shocks the race competitors.” Test result: Superb). Our high-end Twentyniner received the same qualified statements. So there was only one question: Why not combine the two top performers’ genes to develop a fabulously fast Twentyniner fully? Here you are: The BIG NINETY-NINE is the convincing answer of the MERIDA engineers! Like the 26” version NINETY-NINE, also the Twentyniner fully BIG NINETY-NINE is optimally adapted to the requirements of racers: A propulsion-orientated geometry, a completely lockable chassis, aggressive kinematics with best possible sensitivity and effective elimination of any bobbing tendencies – and last but not least a pivot point which has primarily been positioned for the utilization of compact double cranks but is also brilliantly compatible to triple systems. The Twentyniner shares several frame technologies with the celebrated 26” version as well. However, there are some essential differences between the two bikes.

“The BIG.NINETY-NINE unites general 29er advantages with the NINETYNINE’s top-level chassis. Result: A marathon bike par excellence.” Juergen Falke, MERIDA’s Head of Design

16  Technical Features

“Basically, a Twentyniner – be it hardtail or fully – is always a development which has to be separated from 26” bikes because the different characters of 29” and 26” models require different solutions,” Juergen Falke as MERIDA’s Head of R&D explains. For example, a Twentyniner’s naturally higher front end must be constructed as low as possible because especially race bikes require maximum pressure onto the front wheel (e. g. during steep uphill passages). That’s why the BIG NINETY-NINE’s headtube is about 20 mm shorter than that of the NINETY-NINE. In addition, flat headsets reduce the front end’s total height. Also the rear stay of the NINETY-NINE’s “big brother” features some unique details: The chain stay construction is as short as possible to maintain the bike’s agility in spite of the bigger tires. The 142 mm rear stay offers a mount for a 12 mm thru axle to increase the rear section’s stiffness – ideal to accentuate the BIG NINETY NINE’s need for downhill speed. The pivot point of the rocker link has been revised as well to be still configured – in spite of different frame dimensions – for the compact 2x10 drivetrains which are favoured especially by racers. The advantages of a chassis with an upright shock position in front of the seat tube have been much-celebrated features of the NINETY-NINE and come into their own also in case of our BIG NINETY-NINE.

Broadband race options Already in its first model year, our BIG NINETY-NINE offers a band width ideally adapted to the needs of many Twentyniner fans: From a model completely consisting of light aluminium alloys up to hybrid solutions with carbon main frame and aluminium rear stay – the Twentyniner fully always sprints superbly out of its starting block. Strong uphill traction Due to their bigger diameter, a Twentyniner’s tires offer not only more comfort but especially more traction. First of all, this is perceptible during technical uphills (e. g. when roots or rock edges increase the risk of rear wheel spin). Together with the BIG NINETY-NINE’s sensitive chassis, the fundamental advantages of a Twentyniner therefore mean: Optimum! Downhill with tracking stability Thanks to its “Tapered Steerer” headtube with adapted steer tube, the BIG NINETY-NINE offers maximum braking and handling control. The Tapered Steerer increasing from 1 1/8” (top) to 1.5” (bottom) is as light as it is stiff and matches specifically the “racing genes” of this 29” MTB rocket. In addition, the longer wheel base (compared to a 26” model) and the thru-axle rear stay increase the rear section’s stability – an ideal precondition for full-throttle downhills! Sprint power under maximum load A chassis completely and remotely lockable from the handlebar as well as the torsion-resistant BSA bottom bracket for maximum propulsion characterize our BIG NINETY-NINE as 29” race fully of the premium class.


A All of a Piece The one-piece seat stay construction eliminates the need for an additional bridge in front of the seat tube and saves weight at maximum stiffness.

Technical Features

Virtual Pivot Kinematics

The more suspension travel is offered by a fully, the bigger is the developers’ challenge to balance the sensitivity and neutrality of the chassis successfully. MERIDA has a very own answer to this complex question: „Virtual Pivot Kinematics“ (VPK).

During recent years, the full-suspension MTB sector has seen a lot of technological changes: The continuous reduction of frame and component weight has extremely minimized the total bike weight especially beyond the 120 mm category. So it’s not really surprising that 140 mm or 150 mm fullies effortlessly become partners for Alpine crossings or that even 160 mm enduros show a more than acceptable climbing performance. Great! Because fullies offer not only more comfort than hardtails, but also a huge performance plus – thanks to the fact that both wheels have nearly constant ground contact and that the handling can be controlled with perceptibly more precision. But the fact that also more and more “long-travel” fullies get constantly lighter and are therefore “pedalled” (moved by the pilot’s “kicks”) by a growing number of riders means that the creation of such bikes becomes even more challenging for R&D experts. Only some years ago, e. g. most 160 mm enduros still were carried uphill by funicular or car to perform their brutal “downhill dive” afterwards. In contrast, today’s enduro fans can get chassis systems which still offer top sensitivity for such challenging downhill runs – but also greatest possible neutrality during braking and pedalling uphill. The MERIDA R&D team has an ideal solution for this obvious antagonism: “Virtual Pivot Kinematics” (VPK).

“With VPK, we have developed a rearstay concept which meets all needs in the suspension travel sector of 140 or more millimetres.” Thomas Pfrommer, Bike Product Manager

18  Technical Features

The engineers’ respective trick might be simple in principle, but its successful transformation into a perfectly working system means the exact opposite: The rear stays of singlepivot respectively supported single-pivot systems feature a fixed pivot point which defines the wheel path. In contrast, developers of multi-pivot chassis systems with virtual pivot point have more freedom to be creative and to influence the individual characteristics of the chassis. “Anything which is necessary to ensure best possible functionality for a fully beyond 120 mm can be realized optimally by VPK,” MERIDA engineer Thomas Pfrommer explains. First of all, the virtual pivot point stands for premium downhill competence – because a sensitively working VPK chassis utilizes every single millimetre of the rear stay. Nevertheless, VPK performs without bobbing; even on the smallest chain ring, the system remains drivetrain-neutral (especially when the rider sits in the saddle) – exactly this is a theoretic weakness of virtual pivot points. MERIDA was also able to eliminate most of the notorious pedal kickback which is caused by rearward chain pull at the chain ring during strut compression. So there remains just the question about the undesirable chassis rigidity under brake load. Thomas Pfrommer: “Not existing, task completed.” Good to know.

Virtual Pivot Point Main frame and rear stay of all full-suspension bikes are connected via several pivots whose number depends on the respective concept. The shock unit mounted between the two elements defines the “final feeling” of the concept. Also dependent on the selected concept are the position of the rear stay’s pivot point and the respective rear wheel path (rear wheel movement during strut compression). In case of fullies with virtual pivot point, the latter can be configured more or less freely and individually via specific pivot positioning. Compared with other systems such as single-pivot constructions (which can nevertheless be highly advantageous for certain purposes), this outstanding concept allows for a more intense modification of the bike’s character. VPK: Application range Virtual pivot points especially make sense for bikes with 140 mm or bigger suspension travel: In this category, the typical downhill qualities of the sophisticated concept come more and more to the fore. That’s why MERIDA equips all ONE-FORTY, ONE-SIXTY and FREDDY 1-80 bikes of MY 2013 with “Virtual Pivot Kinematics“ (VPK) now. VPK: Advantages Besides its mighty “absorption potential”, VPK is especially not affected by brake influences. Dependent on construction, fully chassis systems can become rigid completely as soon as the rear brake is operated – particularly during tough downhills a disadvantage which is also relevant in terms of pilot safety. But VPK is different: The chassis remains active even under maximum retardation. Also with regard to the drivetrain, VPK fullies perform in a pleasantly neutral way: Pedal kickback and bobbing tendencies are reduced to an absolute minimum.

Scultura SL

For years, the MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM’s great success has been proving on which top level MERIDA MTBs cycle through the world of professional sports. For 2013, MERIDA presents new high-end road bikes whose rear view can already be memorized by the pelotons of international pro races.

Long before the trend towards exciting frame designs became accepted in addition to the established classics, our innovative REACTO already demonstrated that MERIDA is able to offer premium products also beyond trails and MTB race courses – meanwhile, the REACTO is considered as one of the market’s most versatile aero racers. For MY 2013, Juergen Falke (MERIDA’s Head of Design) and his R&D team have taken another striking step forward by presenting the SCULTURA SL. Not least, this extremely innovative road machine has specifically been developed for potential utilization within the professional sports circus. Since the SCULTURA enriches the MERIDA road racer range, riders and bike press are equally delighted by the outstanding triple combination of low weight, propulsion and comfort. After many months of intense development work, MERIDA’s designers and engineers now eclipse anything known before by introducing the next rung on the evolutionary ladder: From 2013, our also visually impressive SCULTURA SL sets new outstanding benchmarks – thanks to a lot of innovative technologies such as “Double Chamber” reinforcement ribs, “Flex Stay” seat stays or special damping in form of bio fibres. Right from the start, the ultra-light frame weight of 830 g (at frame size 57 cm) as well as the stiffness data of 104 N/mm (headset) and 69 N/mm (extra-solid BB386 bottom bracket) catapulted the SCULTURA SL directly to Rank Two of the eternal road racer ranking. The SCULTURA SL also dashes ahead in terms of comfort: 153 N/mm at the rear stay are equally decisive*.

“Innovative technologies unite top performance and functional lightweight design – thus the new SCULTURA satisfies ultimate demands!” Daniel Schwenk, MERIDA R&D Engineer

Essential preconditions for this world-class level were the no-compromise approach of MERIDA’s experienced R&D experts and the utilization of many innovative technologies: The frame’s torsional stiffness is increased by the broad connection between left chain stay and bottom bracket as well as by the special reinforcement ribs in the bottom bracket section. At the same time, so far unimagined comfort is provided by the specifically developed Monolink seat post (slim 27.2 mm), the “Flex Stay” rear stay and a cutting-edge carbon mat structure: A central layer of special flax fibres is integrated into the High Modulus (HM) carbon fibres. This reduces vibrations and absorbs road bumps to conserve a SCULTURA pilot’s performance potential effectively. The bio fibres are also part of the light full-carbon fork (330 g) with its “Tapered Steerer” shaft increasing from 1 1/8” (top) to 1.5” (bottom).

SCULTURA – The name says it all It’s no matter of chance that MERIDA’s top road machine is called SCULTURA (Italian for “sculpture”): The carbon frame’s flowing shapes have a striking resemblance to the timeless design of antique sculptures. Especially the new 2013 edition SL (“Superlight”) deserves its name even in a double sense: As a first approach, a professional stonemason chiselled the bike’s shape traditionally and “reversely” out of a massive block. Then designers and engineers optimized even the smallest details in ultra-close cooperation and finally perfected the SL shape in full accordance to the designated technological features. Shifter and brake cable integration with full Di2 compatibility For protection against moisture and dirt, the SCULTURA delights with internal routing of shifter and brake cables – of course fully compatible to conventional or electric drivetrain versions. Result: Premium performance with clear look! Geometry for racing First of all, the sophisticated geometry of our SCULTURA SL is configured for speed – unmistakably represented e. g. by the chain stay length of just 400 mm which provides aggressive and agile handling in every situation. Confirmed UCI conformity Since 2012, the UCI (“Union Cycliste International”) demands that all bike frames used for competition purposes have to pass a technical acceptance test called “homologation”. As a matter of course, all MERIDA SCULTURA models come with this official certificate.

Also some other superb features characterize our SCULTURA SL as a no-compromise race bike. Carbon dropouts, a carbon derailleur socket, exclusive compatibility to double drivetrain systems and a maximum tire width of 23 mm make the clear statement: MERIDA pilots cycle in the top flight!

Model Overview

For Season 2013, MERIDA’s fullsuspension MTB range has been extended considerably once again: New additions are the 100 mm Twentyniner BIG NINETY-NINE, the 160 mm enduro ONE-SIXTY and the 180 mm freerider FREDDY.

For Season 2012, we have introduced our sophisticated NINETY-NINE as next evolutionary step of the MERIDA race fullies. Now, the Twentyniner version BIG-NINETY NINE is ready to attack. This model convinces through the same great advantages already offered by its well-proven “little brother” – thanks to 106 mm suspension travel at the rugged aluminium rear stay and a brilliantly matching 100 mm front fork which guides either a carbon or an aluminium main frame over the trail. Geometry and kinematics are still completely propulsion-orientated and have been adapted competently for providing especially a race fully with the bigger wheels’ full potential. For 2013, MERIDA introduces five light and agile BIG NINETY-NINE versions with triple crankset and plenty of traction.

Still the epitome for serious XC and Marathon racing in terms of full-suspension MTBs: 26“ versions with a sensitive, completely lockable front and rear travel of 100 mm. In case of our NINETY-NINE excellently integrated into a completely propulsionorientated geometry – and actively supported by chassis kinematics optimally adapted to the typical double cranksets of the racing circus. Our NINETY-NINE is one of the lightest and stiffest race fullies on the current market. And as soon as it is required by a technical race track, the pro riders of our MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM trust in this piece of equipment. Thanks to “M.O.R.E.” technology, all frame sizes offer the same characteristics. For MY 2013 exclusively available as ultra-light fullcarbon version with two different frame options.

They symbolize the tour bike: Fullies with 120 mm suspension travel at front and rear are trusty partners for one- or multi-day tours. If trips through low mountain ranges or genuine crossings of the Alps – our ONE-TWENTY (already completely reengineered for 2012) offers a kinematics concept providing the chassis with sensitivity and neutrality equally. This bike also features light but nevertheless totally reliable parts as well as a centrepiece in form of an aluminium frame whose geometry (not too aggressive) guarantees long fun in the saddle. Or do you prefer carbon instead? Our ONE-TWENTY CARBON rides on a slightly faster side and is therefore a top recommendation for challenging Marathon courses. New for 2013: With tapered “X-Taper” headtube and post-mount dropout.

Times are changing – and with them the demands of passionate All-Mountain bikers: Today, these riders demand a little more suspension travel for tackling also the most challenging technical trails or tough Alpine crossings with maximum fun. As a matter of course, the bike must be light enough also for longer uphills while especially its chassis has to be rugged enough for rough rides. So here you are: MERIDA has revised the ONE-FORTY completely for 2013 and presents an All-Mountain fully with 145 mm rear suspension travel – plus “VPK”, our very own kinematics interpretation of a chassis with virtual pivot point. This concept’s advantages such as superb downhill qualities, drivetrain neutrality and especially full braking neutrality make our new ONE-FORTY an ideal device for AM fun.

Our R&D experts spent two complete years putting their quality stamp on the new Enduro bike – and in doing so even accepted a 160 mm gap in MERIDA’s product portfolio for 2012. Worthwhile? Definitely! Because our ONE-SIXTY now dashes along the trails and through the starting fields of Enduro races as a top-level MERIDA model which makes the Enduro world quickly forget anything known before. Its impressive downhill qualities (especially on rough terrain) result from the new “VPK” chassis adapted on the basis of our freerider FREDDY. As a matter of course, the ONE-SIXTY can also be cycled uphill. But once there, it knows only one direction: Downhill! Respectively 160 mm travel at front and rear, initially three versions for the premiere season 2013.

Welcome home, UMF! From MY 2013, the “UNITED MERIDA FREERIDERS” (successful not only in the dirt sector) are back aboard their mother ship. In addition, we present a refined and completely integrated “UMF Series” – with the well-proven FREDDY as long-travel fully representative. A mighty, superbly tracking 180 or 170 mm* suspension fork as well as 180 mm travel at the braking-neutral and downhillorientated “VPK” rear stay make our FREDDY an ultimate fun weapon. Maximum performance is also ensured by a 10- or 9-speed drivetrain* (with single chain ring and reliable chain guide), powerful brakes and matching parts. The stunningly low weight of the latter nearly hides the fact that their ruggedness is adapted optimally to the respective field of application. Two model versions for 2013.

Big ninety-Nine

A 100 mm MERIDA fully with all essential advantages of the big Twentyniner wheels – either as thoroughbred racing machine or as brilliantly comfortable tour partner: All model versions of our BIG.NINETY-NINE convince with complete re-engineering for Season 2013.

Sometimes, a simple idea results in a very complex solution – as in the case of our R&D department’s latest creation. Directly after its introduction in MY 2012, the 100 mm race fully NINETY-NINE started towards success like a rocket. Just one year before, the same had applied to the Twentyniner hardtail BIG.NINE. Therefore it’s nearly needless to say that the MERIDA R&D specialists’ main objective was to combine all excellent advantages of these two MTB top stars. But the successful realization of this simple idea was a real challenge. “A Twentyniner can’t be derived directly 1:1 from a 26” bike,” MERIDA R&D engineer Daniel Schwenk explains. Besides all requisite modifications with regard to the bigger tire dimensions, particularly geometric and kinematic competence is necessary to develop a convincing Twentyniner with best possible functionality – especially a full-suspension MTB with a complex chassis. For 2013, MERIDA presents even four BIG.NINETY-NINE versions: Two race hybrids with carbon main frame and aluminium rear stay as well as two models completely consisting of aluminium. All versions share a headtube which has been shortened as far as possible – for maximum pressure onto the front wheel: Only then, the 29” wheels are able to show their advantages and their powerful traction to full extent especially during steep uphills. Due to its sophisticated chassis kinematics, the BIG. NINETY-NINE combines highest possible sensitivity with superb drivetrain-neutrality – thanks to the “M.O.R.E.” concept identically in all frame sizes. The BIG.NINETY-NINE’s “full-throttle” genes are also accentuated by the “X-Taper” headtube (increasing from 1 1/8” to 1.5”), the 12 mm thru axle at the rear and the wheel base which is perceptibly longer in comparison to a 26” bike. Result: Complex and totally convincing perfection.

Know-How

System Comparison 29 Inch / 26 Inch

MTBs with a 29“ wheelset offer several advantages: Regardless of frame material, traction and running smoothness are perceptibly higher. Moreover, the little extra weight is also faced by better comfort.

Good to know that certain things are very straightforward sometimes – such as the much discussed comparison between “conventional” 26 inch MTBs and their increasingly booming “Twentyniner” equivalents. Here and there, it is even predicted that 29” bikes will – allegedly due to their general superiority – displace their 26” prime fathers completely one day. But that prediction is as wrong as, vice versa, the fact is correct that Twentyniners have some unquestionable advantages. Compared with 26“ bikes, already their bigger tires give Twentyniners a little more traction and comfort: The larger contact surface puts the rubber on the ground in a more advantageous way. This results in less rolling resistance and better grip – be it up- or downhill, during cornering or braking. At the same time, the larger tire cross-section with its increased volume means better damping and therefore more comfort. 29” wheels have also a positive effect when the rider crosses over obstacles (e. g. roots) or rough terrain: The bigger wheels hit the obstacle at a flatter angle and are slowed down less strongly. Thus less energy is necessary to master the bump – this physical characteristic simply feels “softer” for the rider. Furthermore, comparatively higher comfort is also generated by a Twentyniner’s relatively longer seat and chain stays which are required to provide adequate space for the bigger wheels. A Twentyniner’s riding stability is comparatively higher, too: The longer wheelbase offers more running smoothness which is positively perceptible especially in downhill direction. But the relative BB position plays also an important role. At identical “BB height” (measured from the ground), a Twentyniner’s bottom bracket sits comparatively lower beneath the imaginary hub axle (“BB drop”) – with equal advantages in terms of up- and downhill cycling: On steep ascents, a 29” front wheel tends to rise considerably later. During steep and technically demanding downhill runs, the pilot gets the feeling of “tumbling” over the handlebar perceptibly later as well.

Full throttle on the race track – the one and only purpose of the 100 mm fully NINETY-NINE. Consistently designed for speed. Geometrically and kinematically optimized for the requirements of all those MTB riders who mount numbers at their handlebars as often as possible.

What is expected from the fastest horse in the barn? From a reliable winner character that considers already Rank Two as deep disappointment? Right: Nothing else than total commitment to crossing the finish line with the decisive second ahead. Therefore the experienced MERIDA R&D specialists are still very proud of the swift NINETY-NINE which has been completely re-engineered for World Cup Season 2012. But in actual fact, there was no real alternative to the impressive collection of laurels this MERIDA racing machine has been amassing since its introduction… “A race fully for podium aspirants has to be exactly like this: Seductively light (…), fabulously sprint-effective and with virtually hyperactive handling. In adequate hands, this 100 mm fully becomes a weapon!” Not only the German bike periodical MountainBIKE (MB 8/12) celebrates our NINETY-NINE’s no-compromise character. Heart of the full-suspension working tool of our MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM pro riders is its chassis: Due to the upright shock position in front of the seat tube, the chassis ensures – in spite of maximum drivetrain-neutrality – ideal utilization of the available suspension travel at maximum sensitivity. Alternatively, the system puts on its sprint-effective “hardtail mask” as soon as it is locked from the handlebar in a flash. The rear stay’s pivot point is optimized for the double cranksets favoured by racers – a consequential concession to the NINETY-NINE’s field of application. Of course, this top-level MERIDA rocket also features cutting-edge technologies such as a “Structure Element” carbon frame with optimized “Nano Matrix Carbon” fibre concept, “Double Chamber” reinforcement ribs within the down tube or an ultra-stiff “X-Taper” headtube. After you have left them behind, your pursuers will be envious – definitely!

Marathon / Tour

One-Twenty

A front and rear travel of 120 mm is an ideal precondition for touring – from day trips through low mountain ranges up to Alpine crossings, the classic tour fullies are ready for everything. In this category, MERIDA offers reliable aluminium models with a cleverly designed chassis.

No matter if general trends occasionally offer more than the classic 120 mm travel at front and rear to tour bikers: MERIDA consistently trusts in well-proven chassis systems which manage the balancing act between highest possible sensitivity and maximum travel utilization on the one hand and convincing drivetrain-neutrality on the other without any problems. Just like our ONE-TWENTY: The all-rounder of the MERIDA program has already been revised completely for 2012 and delights with further re-design for 2013 now. Right at very first sight, the ONE-TWENTY’s organic design language radiates full readiness for great rides through pristine nature. But not only the visual appearance is brilliantly adapted to the routes you are going to tackle: The ONE-TWENTY fuses with the trail surface also in terms of construction. The main frame triangle as well as the rear stay consist of multibutted and hydroformed “Prolite 66” aluminium. With the supported single-pivot concept, the MERIDA R&D specialists have successfully developed a chassis which feels “bigger” but can be pedalled as comfortably as versions with less suspension travel. No annoying pedal recoil, no excessive bobbing tendencies, neutral braking performance: Our ONE-TWENTY equally convinces uphill, downhill and on flat terrain. Thanks to the “X-Taper” headtube (increasing from 1 1/8” to 1.5”), this MERIDA MTB tourer guides its 120 mm fork safely through off-road territory. In addition, the bike offers superb tracking precision and can be slowed down with maximum safety. Furthermore, the rear stay dropouts enable the direct mounting of post-mount callipers which accept brake discs up to 160 mm without any adaptor. So what’s still missing? A low weight suitable for touring? Here you are: The ONE-TWENTY’s aluminium frame puts a maximum of 2.500 g on the scales.

All Mountain

One-Forty

All-Mountain: In recent years, nearly no other full-suspension category has gained as much significance as the trail-hungry MTBs with 140 to 150 mm travel – designed as all-round fun guarantors on downhill trails which nowadays require more and more technical riding skills.

It’s characteristical for the nature of human beings to demand (or, at least, to desire) always the optimum of anything possible. MERIDA is proud to fulfil the wish for a state-of-the-art MTB which delights with 145 mm suspension travel at the highly “absorptive” rear – of course actively supported by everything All-Mountain bikers desire for maximum trail enjoyment in Season 2013. And because the “All-Mountain” category is still progressing with giant steps, also the MERIDA ONE-FORTY enters the MTB future with ideally matching seven-league boots. For the new season, this 145 mm fully has been re-engineered completely. But not only its design represents the fresh breeze which is blowing through MERIDA’s All-Mountain family now: For 2013, the ONE-FORTY offers a new kinematics concept with virtual pivot point (derived from the big Enduro brother ONE-SIXTY and from our UMF freeride wonder FREDDY). “Virtual Pivot Kinematics” or “VPK” stands for MERIDA’s very own interpretation of a cutting-edge chassis which primarily delights with extreme downhill qualities – but not only: On the other hand, we have also regarded the fact that All-Mountain riders with downhill desire mainly prefer pedalling uphill instead of buying a ticket for the next funicular. That’s why the ONE-FORTY initially surprises its pilot with only minimum bobbing tendencies (also while the rider is sitting in the saddle) before the out-of-saddle attack towards the summit is performed without the otherwise much-feared pedal recoil. Then, during the following downhill, the complete suspension travel is utilized while the 145 mm bike remains entirely active also under full brake load. And with optimally matching components such as a lowerable seat post*, MERIDA ensures that the total MTB package is convincing as well. Still missing anything?

Enduro

One-Sixty

Let’s combine the English word “endurance” with the Spanish term for “hard”. Voilà: In the “Enduro” category, the main task is nothing else than mastering even toughest terrain with ease – but not only a few short times. Our ONE-SIXTY is more than ready for this challenge. Expectations can be fulfilled or disappointed – what would your choice be? With the ONE-SIXTY, MERIDA presents – after a “gap year” – a brand-new 160 mm full-suspension bike which is not only eager to fulfil all high expectations towards a cutting-edge Enduro bike, but is in fact designed to exceed them successfully. Are you one of all those adventurous characters who can’t get enough of facing new challenges while experiencing exciting situations other people only know from anecdotes? Therefore “not at all enough” is exactly the right keyword for all those riders who want to tell such fascinating anecdotes. That’s why the experienced engineers and designers at MERIDA were only content with “more than enough” before they introduced the ONE-SIXTY as our new 160 mm Enduro bike for Season 2013. This resulted in a MERIDA fully which is a genuine Enduro model not only by the name of its category: Persistent, tough, sensitively acting and also light enough for comfortable uphill cycling. And of course competently equipped with an adequate chassis full of sophisticated efficiency: Heart of the ONE-SIXTY is “VPK” – MERIDA’s very own “Virtual Pivot Kinematics” technology provides this bike especially with a powerful but safe downhill performance. The 160 mm at the rear are utilized completely; even brake influences can’t affect the convincing action of the rear stay. And if there should be neither funicular nor shuttle nearby one day: Absolutely no problem – our ONE-SIXTY is free of bobbing tendencies or annoying pedal recoil. Therefore the uphill performance is equally convincing. For MY 2013 in Germany, we initially present three versions featuring internal cable routing (also for the lowerable seat post’s remote control*) and exclusive Enduro components which are optimally adapted to this demanding application range. *Model versions 1800 and 3000

Freeride

Freddy

Life’s definitely too short for any boredom! With the FREDDY from the UMF series, MERIDA introduces a 180 mm full-suspension freerider whose sheer performance data alone give a pretty good impression of the great cycling fun you will experience on this brilliant bike in 2013!

For many years, our team of “United Merida Freeriders” has been rocking the scene with successful bikes. Now MERIDA offers something new for all enthused lovers of downhill fun! With its frame weight of just 3.000 g*, our FREDDY ranges among the freeride fraction’s lightest models. But this playful handiness with the “licence to style” should not divert your attention from the fact that our 180 mm fully monster is primarily and competently designed for bike park purposes and other tough adventures. Our FREDDY’s superb freerider performance is especially guaranteed by the sophisticated chassis with “Virtual Pivot Kinematics” (“VPK”) whose virtual pivot point provides the bike with a lot of convincing characteristics. For example, “VPK” eagerly utilizes the complete suspension travel of 180 mm while remaining entirely active also under full brake load – thus you will master the next challenging turn without any problem. Thanks to its flat steering angle (65,5°) and MERIDA’s very own interpretation of a “broad” cockpit with 800 mm handlebar**, the FREDDY is a really passionate “game partner” with outstandingly safe handling in every situation. So competitors, beware! As it should be, our FREDDY freerider also features 2.4” tires, a powerful 200/180 mm braking system and a mighty fork/shock setup which does definitely not deny all jumps like a stubborn horse. Equally typical for this category are the agile rear stay (just 435 mm) with thru axle and the single chain ring with chain guard. Or do you prefer even a little more Enduro potential? Here you are: The FREDDY can be equipped with an optional front derailleur for becoming a very drivetrain-neutral long-travel Enduro in the twinkling of an eye – of course also thanks to “VPK”! So please don’t ask what your bike can do for you – just ride your bike as you like it!

MTB Hardtails

Mountainbike hardtails are the no-compromise choice for all off-road fans. From robust beginner models with reliable aluminium frames and stress-resistant parts up to ultra-light and genuine race rockets: MERIDA develops high-end MTBs for all requirements – as 29� or 26� versions.


MTB Hardtails

Model Overview

Also the MERIDA hardtail family has been extended for MY 2013: Via the integration of the HARDY models from the UMF series, we now offer dirtbikes (from beginner to pro version) on which the UMF team has been performing successfully at international contests for years.

BIG.NINE

O.NINE

Matts LITE

Especially in the hardtail sector, Twentyniners have established themselves as an essential part of today’s bike world. Good to know that the bigwheeled MERIDAs enter their third model year now and thus benefit from competent R&D experience – plus the fact that our MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM scored nearly all successes of last season (incl. one European Championship title) on this bike. For 2013, the BIG.NINE offers many new features: The high-end versions delight with further weight optimization and with a new rear stay whose flax fibres, as part of the carbon structure, increase comfort perceptibly once again. All LITE versions now feature shorter chain stays and a direct-mount bracket for the derailleur. Carbon fans enjoy new carbon frames priced below the high-end line.

Unforgotten: José Hermida’s World Championship title which the MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM pro rider scored on his O.NINE in 2010. Therefore this bike entered MY 2012 nearly unchanged – back then, the frame weight below 900 g, the outstanding stiffness or the comfortable “Flex Stay” rear stay still ranged among the optimum in the market sector of 26” carbon hardtails. But for Season 2013, the MERIDA R&D experts were eager for getting busy again. Thus they equipped the O.NINE with a new rear stay whose sophisticated structure was initially developed for the new SCULTURA SL: A central layer of special flax fibres was integrated into the carbon mats of the seat and chain stays. This reduces vibrations once again and provides even more comfort – at unchanged stiffness.

There are many good reasons for choosing a carbon hardtail. But there are also a lot of equally good reasons for selecting a model with aluminium frame. Because aluminium bikes are far from being “old-school” or “boring” – especially when they are made by MERIDA: During “Hydroforming”, hot oil pushes the frame blank under high pressure (working from inside to the outside) into exciting shapes. So thanks to this production process, all MATTS LITE models show their most beautiful side. And not entirely by chance, these aluminium hardtails base on the geometry of our high-end carbon model O.NINE. This states clearly: A MATTS LITE is a race bike eager to take its pilot into the top flight on challenging courses. Two model versions for 2013, each with 100 mm suspension travel.

Right from the start, a MATTS is an ideal choice when you are favouring a high-quality MERIDA bike. With its frame consisting of high-quality “Racelite 6061” aluminium, our MATTS is equally suitable for swift training units after work and for long, pleasant weekend tours with the family: The MATTS geometry is not too aggressive and therefore guarantees long hours of fun in the saddle. Thanks to the organic design language, a MATTS is also a highly attractive partner for every day – last but not least also because of the “K-Mount” kickstand bracket or the mounting possibility for a luggage rack. The MERIDA MATTS hardtails of MY 2013 furthermore delight with disc or calliper brakes, 100 mm suspension forks at the front and, in case of some versions, also with new top tubes.

Mit einem MATTS sind Sie vom ersten Moment an bestens beraten, wenn Ihre Wahl auf ein MERIDAMountainbike fallen soll. Mit seinem Rahmen aus hochwertigen „Racelite 6061“-Aluminium empfiehlt sich ein MATTS ebenso für die schnelle Feierabendrunde wie auch für ausgedehnte Wochenend­ touren mit der Familie. Denn die Geometrie eines MATTS ist nicht zu sportlich geraten, um nicht stundenlangen Bikegenuss zu garantieren. Dank organischer Formsprache ist ein MATTS zudem ein schicker Begleiter im Alltag, für den es sich nicht zuletzt durch seine „K-Mount“-Befestigung für Seitenständer oder Aufnahmen für einen Gepäckträger empfiehlt. Zur Wahl stehen Modelle mit Scheiben- oder Felgenbremsen, allesamt mit 100-Millimeter-Federgabeln an der Front und zum Teil neuen Oberrohren im Modelljahr 2013.

Sounds astounding, but has actually been realized by our R&D specialists: The new aluminium frame of the HARDY PRO series weighs 500 g less now – a fact which has already driven our team rider Thomas Genon to unimagined “altitude flights” at recent contests. The current frame with its slim serial weight of 1.9 kg catapults also your PRO TEAM or PRO 1 to an unimagined level! Or do you need more ruggedness because your style requires even tougher material? No problem: The two PRO STEEL versions are ideal weapons for easy dirt or skate park rides. And if you want an affordable start with a totally reliable frame while you are initially content with parts which do not cover the complete range of tricks: The models HARDY 4 to 6 provide a brilliant basis for component tuning.

Twentyniner

Big.Nine

From trend to standard solution – only few bikes succeed in this respect. By now, 29” hardtails have succeeded exactly in this respect. If as robust beginner model with a lot of fun and comfort for every day or as ultra-fast race bike: Our BIG.NINE has many expressive faces.

You know for sure: The swiftest MTB ride always requires a hardtail. You are an ambitious racer, marathon biker, endurance athlete. Or you have just discovered the MTB for your personal purposes while you are looking for the perfect symbiosis between ruggedness and sportiness. Whatever your motivation for biking may be: A BIG.NINE is an ideal choice if you want to experience your individual adventures on a top-level Twentyniner hardtail made by MERIDA – no matter if you prefer aluminium or carbon as material for your frame. Since the BIG.NINE CARBON has become the official working tool of our supremely successful MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM, the pro riders score most of their triumphs on this race bike. A Twentyniner shows its advantages especially during long distances – thanks to the increased comfort provided by the large-volume tires and the longer rear stays. Together with the Twentyniner tires’ higher traction, this means for ambitious bikers: Even more power for longer sprints! There was no reason to improve the geometry of our carbon hardtail. However, the top version for 2013 delights with another weight reduction while a special fibre mix with flax elements in the seat and chain stays increases the comfort at the rear once again. In addition, carbon fans enjoy the frames of the COMP series as well-priced alternative to the PRO/SL frames. Also aluminium aficionados have a reason for joy: Due to new and shorter chain stays, the BIG.NINE LITE models have come closer to the carbon versions’ compact agility again. Furthermore, direct mounting of the derailleur is possible now and definitely more than just an elegant visual update. But no matter which of our eleven 2013 models for Germany might be your bike of choice: Bikers who want to ride a Twentyniner hardtail will ride a BIG.NINE.

Carbon Hardtails

O.Nine

Within the MTB context, not only traditionalists consider 26” hardtails still as first choice: Especially Cross Country racers appreciate the unbeatably low weight of the carbon bikes while tour riders enjoy the “all-round carefree package” which is offered by MTB hardtails.

Admittedly, Twentyniners increasingly take over the place of classic 26“ versions also and especially in the hardtail sector – already enough reason to forget these bikes’ still obvious and well-proven advantages after so many years of brilliant performance? Anyway, 26” hardtails are far from being candidates for retirement – especially when they are carbon bikes with full suitability for racing. “The king is dead. Long live the king!” Particularly in our modern and fast-paced times, good aspects of seemingly bygone days are forgotten very quickly – often only to evoke recently forgotten topics again after a very short time. But MERIDA does definitely not feel any urge to throw well-proven products overboard quickly and blindly. Even though we are completely convinced of all excellent advantages offered by our Twentyniner MTBs: An identically equipped 26” version will always be lighter and more agile than its “big brother”. And first of all, the stiffness of its wheelset will be comparatively higher. That’s simply called “physics”. Thus the experienced MERIDA R&D specialists have willingly made the effort to improve the flagship hardtail O.NINE once again for 2013 – of course also not to forget the fact that our MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM pro rider José Hermida became XC World Champion on this bike just two years ago! The frame weight below 900 g* and the geometry showed no need for optimization. But the flexibility of the O.NINE’s already very comfortable rear section (provided by “Flex Stay” seat and chain stays) could be increased even further. MERIDA’s “magic trick”: A central layer of bio flax fibres has been integrated into the carbon mats. The specific qualities of these flax fibres reduce vibrations and surface bumps effectively. Result: Less exhaustion and therefore more power. Are you convinced?

Sport

Matts Lite / TFS

Besides robustness, an often sporty application range is the main feature of MTB hardtails. Alongside the carbon rockets of the O.NINE series, MERIDA offers the aluminium models MATTS LITE and MATTS TFS – ideal material for beginners as well as for riders with athletic ambitions.

As individual as yourself: The MTBs of our MATTS LITE and TFS series represent the complete MERIDA know-how in terms of highly competent aluminium processing. Via our own processing technologies named “Hydro Forming System” (HFS) and “Techno Forming System” (TFS), only top-quality aluminium alloys (“Prolite 66” and “Racelite 6061”) are elaborately transformed into exciting shapes – either by hot oil under high pressure (working from inside to outside) or by mechanical moulding (working from outside to inside). This provides the frame – the expressive heart of your MERIDA hardtail – with a completely individual character. Hence, any confusion is impossible! Our sporty aluminium hardtails are based on the O.NINE, the classic 26” working tool of our MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM. This is clearly demonstrated not only by the tube shapes and the equally propulsion-orientated geometry, but from MY 2013 once again also by the bikes’ configuration: Exclusively equipped with powerful disc brakes, MATTS LITE and MATTS TFS hardtails are ready for your potential desire to absolve some challenging downhills. And why not? These bikes have proven their impressive swiftness already during the last uphill: The light frames are optimally complemented by the choice of high-quality components such as the 100 mm suspension fork which can be locked completely if required (in case of some model versions quickly and comfortably from the handlebar). Post-mount adaptors allow for direct mounting of brake discs up to 160 mm* while the tapered “X-Taper” respectively “Egg-Shape” headtubes guarantee brilliant steering precision also at high speeds. This accentuates once again that all MATTS LITE and TFS hardtails are eager for being pedalled always in the top flight. In MY 2013, a total of eight model versions comes to Germany.

Matts

Mountainbiking is an expensive hobby? Not at all! For many years, the MERIDA MATTS series has been proving that especially the entry into the biking world can be unbelievably pleasurable in spite of a comparatively smaller start budget – given that the developers are competent.

They could be described as prime fathers of our aluminium hardtail range: Because only on the basis of the “MERIDA Advanced TIG-Welding Technology System“ (“MATTS“), we annually produce high-quality bikes which are the fundament of our commitment within the MTB sector. All MERIDA MATTS models consist of high-quality aluminium and feature 100 mm suspension forks (lockable in case of some versions). In addition, there is the choice between powerful calliper or disc brakes. With regard to geometry, our experienced R&D experts have ensured that the MATTS series offers the characteristic MERIDA sportiness but does not feel too “stretched”. This guarantees comfortable riding fun also during longer tours. Already for MY 2012, the “Speed” frame version of our MATTS series obtained a new head tube as well as a re-engineered down tube. Now, the MERIDA R&D specialists have turned their attention successfully towards the “Speed” frame’s top tube: Not only the top tube’s new design but especially its elaborate and sophisticated 3D shaping impressively emphasizes the top quality standard of the MERIDA beginner bikes once again – supported by smooth welding seams which demonstrate how much competent development and manufacturing know-how is also characteristic for MERIDA bikes of the beginner sector. Also in MY 2013, all MATTS models are equipped with special mounting eyelets for a rack and for a kickstand. Therefore these aluminium hardtails are not only superb and solid companions for leisure activities in open nature, but also for totally comfortable cycling through the city – and an ideal choice for all those who want to combine their way to office effectively with a diversified and individual training unit. So what are you still waiting for? Every journey always begins with the first step!

Hardy

The bikes of our HARDY series are closely connected with the UMF team riders: The latter give our developers first important feedback, they test, ride – and win! Only because R&D and pro athletes are networked that closely, MERIDA is able to offer a convincing line-up for 2013.

Our HARDY variants differ from each other: The matching MERIDA bikes are as individual as your personal style. But no matter if you are an ardent beginner on dirt or already an experienced rider with very impressive performance – the enormous range of model versions from HARDY 6 to HARDY PRO offers enough powerful MERIDA hardtail potential for more than just one great “dirt life”. The HARDY PRO TEAM is definitely the top-of-the-line version for MY 2013. Believe it or not: Our R&D specialists have reduced the weight of the PRO TEAM aluminium frame by a total of 500 g – an ideal precondition for UMF team rider Thomas Genon who performed his superb series of new stunts already on new bike’s prototype. This resulted e. g. in Genon’s FMB World Tour wins at the “26TRIX” Gold Event and the “Dakine Air Strike” Silver Event. Also his fellow UMF team rider Alfred Scholtze was able to score a 1st Rank on the new and thoroughbred dirt bike: He dominated the Urban Bike Challenge successfully. In 2013, the miracle frame with its 1.900 g is part of the model versions HARDY TEAM and HARDY PRO: Both hardtails are eagerly waiting for rapid rides towards your triumph on the dirt track! But not all dirt bikers are fans of ultralight constructions. That’s why MERIDA offers also two excellent variants with super-solid steel frames and full suitability for competition purposes: HARDY PRO STEEL 1 and 2 are able to endure almost anything you expect of them and dare to do – be it on the dirt track or in the skate park. HARDY 4 and 6 with their robust aluminium frames are ideal partners for beginners in the dirt sector or for all those who primarily prefer to dash over trails. But as soon as these MERIDA hardtails are equipped with a tough fork and a wheelset suitable for dirt riding, their commitment to performance knows no limits.

LAdy  / Youth & Kids

Specific requirements call for specific solutions – the attitude of the MERIDA engineers who develop the ideal bike for every rider. Thus MERIDA delights all bike-enthused ladies, youngsters and kids with an individual program – for cycling fun right from the first crank turn!


Lady

JULIET

In MY 2013, MERIDA offers three different and specific hardtail frames for female bikers as well as an own lady version of the 120 mm fully ONE-TWENTY. This demonstrates again that women with the demand for an ideal bike don’t have to search long for an adequate partner.

You’re a woman and you like to bike. Do you also ask yourself why it seems sometimes extremely difficult to find a pedalpowered two-wheeler which is ideally suitable for you? Whoever and wherever you may ask: You’ll always get a different answer. In contrast, MERIDA offers a very easy solution: Simply choose the bike which suits you best – perhaps “only” because you like the design. Because in the end, the fun is everything that counts. Seriously. Within the MERIDA product portfolio for 2013, it’s actually very easy to find a matching partner for maximum cycling fun. The initial question is always: Fully or hardtail? Our ONE-TWENTY JULIET delights all biking ladies who are looking for an excellent and reliable full-suspension MTB. With its main section and rear stay consisting of aluminium, the robust and durable frame puts just 2.500 g* on the scales. And the organic design language shows already at very first sight that this tour fully is a nature lover and feels very comfortable also off the paved path. Thanks to low standover height and outstanding agility, the ONE-TWENTY JULIET has a superb handling. The sensitive but also drivetrain-neutral and – especially – completely lockable chassis fulfils the desire for comfort and safety on the trail as well as all demands for sprint power and uphill performance. These convincing characteristics are also provided aplenty by all hardtails of the MERIDA JULIET family – no matter if they base on the “Pro”, “Comp” or “Speed” frame. All variants share high-quality aluminium as construction material and feature lockable 100 mm suspension forks. And if you desire full suitability for daily use besides the sportiness of our JULIET bikes: Of course, all model versions can be equipped with a rack and a kickstand. Best of all: They all are still very eager to meet you!

Know-How

Geometry Comparison JULIET / MATTS TFS XC Several important features distinguish our lady-specific JULIET bikes from MERIDA models for male athletes. For good reason: Only if SHE pedals on an optimally adapted bike, full cycling fun is guaranteed – be it MTB or road racer for trips with or without companions. The essential is JULIET.

Already at first sight, it’s obvious that a JULIET MTB hardtail follows (e. g. compared with a MATTS TFS) a considerably different geometry with slightly longer head tube, slightly shorter top tube and a somewhat lower BB position. Not because our R&D department thinks that bikes for women should be less athletic than models for men – the exact opposite is true: Only if a lady is integrated optimally into her bike, she can enjoy also sporty and longer tours to the full extent. Thanks to the stronger top tube slope towards the seat tube, the JULIET geometry generates a shorter standover height (= the distance between ground and top tube) that feels convenient in all situations – such as sudden stops that force female feet to contact the ground as quickly as possible. This is supported by a comparatively lower BB

position that also ensures a low centre of gravity and, therefore, agile handling. This advantageous cycling feeling is furthermore enhanced by the comparatively longer head tube which elevates the JULIET front end and enables a slightly more upright body posture. In connection with the slightly shorter top tube, this results in a less stretched and therefore comfortable seating position – also when the upper part of a woman’s body is comparatively shorter. All those advantages apply to MERIDA JULIET road bikes as well: The latter follow the comfort concept of our “Road Ride” series with an equally elevated front end and extended chain stays for more comfort and cycling safety.

A  Just 5 mm for the big difference: Due to the comparatively longer head tube, a JULIET bike’s front end moves upwards. This enables a more relaxed seating position. B  The BB position of a JULIET varies by 5 mm as well – the results: More legroom and fast ground contact of the feet.

Brad

Fast, agile and especially ultra-robust: Thanks to the great BMX bikes from the MERIDA UMF series, passionate cycling fans of all ages are able to enjoy their entry into the freestyle world with maximum fun. In 2013, three steel versions are waiting for being discovered by you.

Only very few BMX fans might remember that this downright cool sport was born already during the late 1960s in the USA. Comparatively much more present in the mind might be Steven Spielberg’s cinematic masterpiece “E. T. the Extra-Terrestrial” which enthused millions of international moviegoers in 1982 and helped BMX pro Bob Haro to gain global popularity as a stuntman. But all those who consider BMX as “oldschool” after just 30 years are completely wrong: Since then, the bikes and their application range have experienced further and impressive development. Meanwhile, the original BMX sport has been divided into six disciplines: Race, Flatland, Street, Park, Dirt and Vert. No matter what their individual characteristics might be – they all share one important aspect: They’re all just one first crank turn away from the discovery by you. To facilitate your entry into the BMX world, the MERIDA R&D experts have pondered intensively how the bikes for 2013 could be designed in an even more attractive way. This has resulted in the model versions BRAD 3, 4 and 5 which provide definitely enough reasons for praising our engineers’ competence. Because our developers have considered the fact that BMX beginners need robust equipment instead of ultra-light bikes – or have you ever seen that a rookie masters all stunts right from the outset and takes a virtually pristine bike back home then? That’s why all three BMX model versions feature outstandingly durable steel frames and share some other superb configuration elements as well: All MERIDA BRADs possess a rotor for successful bar spins and delight also with single-sided axle pack mounting for cool grinds. But if that was already enough, there wouldn’t be three different variants, right? Here you are: The chain rings of BRAD 3 and 4 have only 25 teeth – exactly as pro riders like it!

DAKAR

Out into the fresh air, through the forest with buddies, membership in a bike club or the daily, healthy and relaxed way to school: There are enough good reasons to place your child on a bike. And to ensure real cycling fun, you should choose the proper bike right from the start.

In these young days, we often do not realize how untroubled a child’s life can be. But to be honest: It’s actually a real blessing to be still free from the obligations and responsibilities of adult life – and instead to be allowed to think freely and happily about answers to rather “trivial” questions like the choice of the first or next favourite bike. As soon as your beloved offspring is able to walk, she/he is ready for her/his first MERIDA: Our DAKAR 612-COASTER features a compact 7.5” aluminium frame with 12” pneumatic tires and coaster brake. And thanks to the specific designs for boys and girls, it won’t probably be the subject of conflicts between brothers and sisters. The same applies to the bigger DAKAR 616-COASTER whose 8” frame is carried by 16” pneumatic tires. Both models come with reliable stabilizers which can be demounted easily as soon as your child is able to ride safely without their support. From wheel size 20”, all MERIDA youth bikes are not equipped with such helpers any more. This starts with the DAKAR 620 whose aluminium frame differentiates between girl and boy not only in visual terms but also with regard to construction: The “lady” version is 0.5” smaller and has a lower top tube for a larger standover height – and therefore for more confidence and safety. Both variants are slowed down by powerful calliper brakes and delight with a 7-speed revoshifter system as well. Our DAKAR 624-V already offers 21 gears; also in this case, the frame of the “lady” version is 0.5” smaller and features a comparatively lower top tube. In contrast, this difference is not made any more by the DAKAR CHAMPION-V as well as by the models NINETY-SIX JUNIOR 624-SUS and DAKAR TEAM-D (respectively inspired by our MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM): These are already genuine MTBs – the race hardtail even comes with disc brakes.

Cross  / Cyclo Cross

Superb all-round characteristics for everyday challenges or genuine sports device for cyclo-cross purposes: MERIDA crossers offer a lot of possibilities. If with or without suspension fork, with linear handlebar or “drop bar” – in any case with maximum fun thanks to sophisticated technologies!


Cross

Crossway

Leave everyday life behind and tackle every path! With our CROSSWAY series, you are optimally equipped for every terrain you want to master with sporty ambition. The character of these light, agile and comfortable all-rounders does not accept only one situation: Standstill.

According to a convincing theory, a bike should be designed as perfectly as possible for its respective application range – to create a two-wheeled specialist which is able to cover its sector’s individual requirements optimally. That’s exactly the reason why we design road racers, MTBs or triathlon machines which are hard to beat within their respective sectors. But what is the solution when the application range is extended? When the bike has to convince likewise on asphalt and gravel roads? Or has to be recreation companion and sports equipment? For MERIDA, the answer is the same: The bike has to be a specialist – but simply a very versatile one like our CROSSWAY with complete re-engineering for 2013. Your MERIDA CROSSWAY is excellently prepared for your wide-ranging individual demands: In MY 2013, the torsionresistant but nevertheless highly comfortable aluminium frame delights its pilot with features such as a new top tube design, new seat stays and completely hidden routing of the brake/shifter cables. Therefore a very powerful heart beats in the bike’s centre – reliably supported by an effective triple drivetrain with up to 30 gears. The CROSSWAY’s tires with their medium-deep tread master the challenging balance between enough grip on rough gravel and pleasantly low rolling resistance on smooth asphalt – always guided optimally by a reliable 63 mm suspension fork at the front. Thanks to the disc or calliper brake option, our CROSSWAY offers, of course, totally trouble-free speed control in every imaginable situation as well. Even more convincing MERIDA comfort is guaranteed if you choose one of the available model versions with suspension seat post – and even more versatile suitability for every day if you mount a rack and a kickstand in addition. So everything’s possible for you: Because this is a MERIDA CROSSWAY.

Cyclo Cross

At least since the UCI allows the unlimited utilization of disk brakes, cyclo-crossers have extended their enormous application range once again: They are sporty like roads racer and master off-road rides like MTBs. Sports equipment and sporty solution for everyday all at once.

Not only ambitious road racers visualize tough athletes on completely muddy bikes when they think of cyclo-crossers. This challenging bike sport was “officially” born at the French Riviera around the turn of the century 1899/1900 after it had gradually emerged from the winter training of road racers. Since those old days, cyclo-cross machines have changed their appearance and have developed certain mass appeal – but without negating their origin. Just two years ago, the UCI (International Cycling Union) still did not allow disc brakes for cyclo-cross races – although the utilization of such systems often seemed appropriate also due to the sometimes extremely tough weather conditions. Since the UCI has cancelled this prohibition, MERIDA trusts in disc brakes – without exeption for 2013 in Germany. For all those who consider cyclo-cross primarily as sports discipline, we offer a no-compromise high-end model in form of the CYCLOCROSS CARBON TEAM*: This crosser – driven by the input of our MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM – bases on an ultra-stiff “Nano Matrix Carbon” frame which provides powerful propulsion and delights with enormous agility (due to the short rear stay). Surface bumps are reduced effectively by the “Flex Stay” seat and chain stays. The cable routing in a special “channel” below the top tube proves extremely advantageous when the bike is carried and still offers unrestrained maintainability. But cyclo-cross bikes are more than pure pieces of sports equipment: Their robustness predestines them also for road utilization in autumn or winter – ideal e. g. for riders who don’t want to have their daily way to work or training dictated by the calendar sheet. For highest possible safety and suitability for daily use, also the aluminium models 5-D and 4-D exclusively come with disc brakes and optional rack mounting.

They are equally and perfectly suitable to be utilized as high-tech implement of pro road racers at international competitions or as your personal everyday tool to experience the unexpected easiness of rolling along: MERIDA road racers and speeders are nothing else than realized velocity!

Road Race

They are the epitome of velocity in practice and have always been a special allure for bikers: Road racers represent the pure transformation of muscle power into propulsion during the pilot’s honest struggle against the route. For 2013, MERIDA offers a large selection of three models.

Carbon or aluminium, classic geometry or aero racer, mechanical or electronic shifting system: Today, all riders who desire to succumb to the mighty allure of velocity enjoy a lot of possibilities for adapting their respective sports equipment to their individual demands. But whatever you may choose: A bike of the MERIDA road race series always stands for the optimum mix of cutting-edge technologies. Our new SCULTURA has been re-engineered completely for 2013 and is the undisputed star of the MERIDA peloton. This young beauty emphasizes its demand for potential pro utilization especially via the numerous highlights of the monocoque carbon frame. The latter exclusively consists of premium High Modulus (HM) fibres. As a result, the SCULTURA does not only delight with a remarkably low frame weight of 830 g*: In addition, the mighty headtube as well as the BB section with its special reinforcement rib ensure brilliant stiffness data which legitimate a self-confident attack towards the eternal rankings of the best. Nevertheless, the MERIDA R&D experts know very well that a cutting-edge road racer meanwhile needs more than powerful propulsion and outstanding steering precision (also provided by the SCULTURA’s light full-carbon fork of just 330 g): The secret is comfort – but of course without affecting the sporty performance. That’s why rear stay and fork consist of a special carbon mat structure with a central layer of vibration-damping bio flax fibres – for a totally new cycling experience! Or do you favour aerodynamically fast carbon with exciting design and surprisingly convincing comfort data? Here you are: For MY 2013, MERIDA offers also the multi-award-winning REACTO. Furthermore, there are the excellent aluminium models of our RACE LITE series. So which bike do you prefer for your road-racing attacks during next spring?

Road Ride

The longer a route, the more important is the comfort of a vehicle – this simple but very important aspect of all mobility equally applies to bicycles. With the brand-new carbon models of the 2013 ROAD RIDE series, MERIDA takes into account exactly this demand.

Road racers are combined hunters and gatherers: Again and again, they hunt for miles along the endless black asphalt strip which meanders through lovely landscapes. And the new impressions gathered with every mile finally become part of an individual story. MERIDA has developed the ROAD RIDE series to ensure that as many passionate bikers as possible are able to enjoy this athletic pleasure. With their comparatively higher comfort, these bikes also respect the demands of pilots who cycle without world-class ambitions. However, they state clearly that a road machine is definitely a piece of sports equipment. Thanks to the moderately increased headtube length and a slightly shorter top tube, the RIDE versions offer a higher front section and thus a more upright (respectively less stretched) seating position – great for all road-racing fans who don’t want to “duck” down against the headwind like a TT athlete. Together with the slightly longer wheel base and the comparatively more comfortable 25 mm tires, the character scale of these road machines purposefully tends towards comfort. For the same reason, our road RIDE bikes are available with up to 30 gears – because it might be possible that epic tours come up with some alluring ascents. New for 2013 is the model version RIDE CARBON whose frame has been developed together with our high-end machine SCULTURA. The RIDE CARBON variants feature “Flex Stay” seat and chain stays as well as a special carbon mat structure whose central layer of bio flax fibres reduces vibrations and surface bumps in a highly effective way. Therefore their impressive comfort data might make you almost forget that you are riding a genuine piece of two-wheeled sports equipment. But due to the frame weight of just 1.050 g*, the stiff BSA bottom bracket and full Di2 compatibility only almost…

KnowHow

Geometry Comparison Ride /  RACE Especially long bike tours should provide unlimited fun – but without physical problems that might force road-racing fans to get off their bikes. Our RIDE family exactly aims at this comfort factor and features also a third chain ring.

Some road racers know the following: The longexpected bike (mostly with totally propulsion-orientated design) is as aggressive as desired. But during longer tours, physical problems increase. It’s just annoying if an aerodynamically reasonable superelevation between saddle and handlebar causes back pain, a tense neck or numb hands. Thus a too “tight” geometry might put a quick end to road racing fun. While maintaining all sportiness that is essential for road racing, MERIDA has created the RIDE “comfort family“ which guarantees that even longest tours do not turn into torture: Due to the extended head tube, these comfort-orientated road models feature a higher front end – but without the necessity to achieve this via unattractive spacer towers that affect, first of all, the steering precision as well. In this

way, the pilot enjoys a considerably more relaxed seating position. The chain stay extension by 5 mm does not only provide perceptibly more comfort at the rear: The therefore longer wheelbase ensures even more running smoothness and tracking stability, too. In addition, all RIDE versions are equipped with a third chain ring – because also beyond the Alps there are ascents that might not always be mastered easily by means of compact or even standard transmission ratios. Together with the 25-millimetertires that are typical for our RIDE road bikes, this concept means: Gentle geometric modifications for maximum cycling pleasure!

A  The elevated front end of our RIDE road bike family means: A more comfortable seating position for less stress on hands, spine or shoulders – and thus for prolonged cycling pleasure.

Triathlon

One brilliant solution for two different two-wheeled worlds: Just in the twinkling of an eye, MERIDA’s very own “Modular” Head technology turns your comfortable triathlon bike into an elegant and racy aero machine which convinces also through top handling on road-racer level.

Different demands always call for different solutions – at least in theoretical terms. But when the MERIDA R&D specialists ask themselves if a triathlon bike for everyone and a high-end racing machine are able to share enough convincing features to unite both cycling worlds, the answer is “yes”. Of course against the background of our development experts’ technological know-how and their own long-term experience in the different disciplines. Depending on the route you want to tackle or whether you have absolved the first 1.000 km of your life or the first 1.000 km of your second training camp: In a triathlete’s everyday life, many factors influence the question for the ideal position on the bike. The “lower” you cycle, the smaller is your drag against the headwind while pedalling becomes respectively more exhausting – standard routine for pro athletes but, especially on longer routes, almost impossible for less-trained riders. Generally, the front section designs of such bikes have low profiles which are elevated by spacers to mitigate the aggressiveness of the position if required. But this results in reduced headset stiffness and is therefore a rather suboptimal solution. With the “Modular Head”, MERIDA offers a comparatively more elegant and considerably safer technology: Via special modules, the headtube length can be increased effectively by 20 or 40 mm. Utilization of these modules increases the support width of the bearing shells and thus also the already convincing headset stiffness once again – a superb advantage you will especially appreciate along mountainous and winding routes. Furthermore, you will surely like the fact that our TIME WARP models feature some additional MERIDA highlights such as “Nano Matrix” carbon, a full-carbon fork, internal cable routing or an aerodynamically optimized rear brake…

Speeder

Why possess just one bike if you can virtually have two in one? The modern models of our swift SPEEDER series are road racers with linear handlebar – and therefore urban bikes as well as training devices. Ideal for all those who want to cut a fine city figure in a double sense.

Today, trend researchers are extremely busy: New tendencies can be observed in almost all areas of life – event though half of these trends may just be a kind of remake. But without doubt, there are at least two new movements which might especially be appreciated by fans of pedal-powered two-wheelers: The trend towards sustainable mobility and the one towards a healthier way of life. MERIDA would like to make a proposal for a very elegant combination of these aspects… Heart of the SPEEDER series are light and torsion-resistant but always comfortable carbon or aluminium frames. These frames respectively characterize also our CYCLOCROSS CARBON (with “Flex Stay” rear stay) and the road racer SCULTURA EVO. But in contrast to these bikes, the SPEEDERs have linear “flatbars”. This provides not only a more upright seating position for better overview: Simultaneously, the brake levers can be reached comparatively quicker – a great advantage in the heavy city traffic with its (from a biker’s perspective) often unfair situations. So in comparison to thoroughbred cyclocross models or road machines, the SPEEDER series delights with higher suitability for daily use. This e. g. results from the broader and thus also more comfortable and more puncture-proof tires. Equally pleasant are the internal cable routing* (easy to maintain) and the option to mount a rack or a kickstand*. And depending on your ambition to accentuate or to improve your fitness, you are able to choose between three different drivetrain configurations: In MY 2013, the transmission options range from sporty 2x10 systems (especially great in case of our ultra-fast SPEEDER T5 CARBON) up to 24 or even 27 gears with mighty uphill potential. For easier climbs into the saddle, the variants T3-D, T3 and T1 are also available as lady versions with lower top tubes.

S-Presso

“Urban mobility“ – recently, not many other terms are as constantly present in the media as the popular synonym for efficient and sustainable city traffic. The exact meaning? A quick look at a MERIDA SPRESSO reveals this secret at once: Athletic elegance with a great dose of lifestyle plus reliability and cutting-edge technologies. For all those in favour of contemporary and daily cycling without any electric motor support: Our S-PRESSO is a modern and athletic bike solution with a specific design for urban environments!

Because no matter if S-PRESSO i11-D with plain single-speed look and brand-new 11-speed “Shimano Alfine” gear hub for all fans of reduced designs – or as version with comprehensive 27-speed derailleur system: Our MERIDA S-PRESSO literally embodies the archetype of an urban bike. On a first-class level, high-quality “Racelite 6061” aluminium is transformed into a classic frame design with completely smoothed welding seams and hidden shifting cable routing. The side stand with direct mounting at the frame’s rear stay emphasizes the suitability for daily use. The same is for the fenders and their outstanding adaption to our S-PRESSO’s visual appearance. And no matter what the weather: Powerful disc brakes guarantee that all model versions also convince through totally reliable braking performance in every situation. So that’s why our S-PRESSO is virtually ideal for swift rides through the dense jungle of everyday city traffic – be it to office, to sports training or to the shopping mall. Therefore nobody should consider the city as “car-only” area…

ELITE MTB Team

Multivan MERIDa Biking Team

Meanwhile, the elite MTB squad of the MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM looks back on eleven impressive seasons of continuous success. Since the formation of the MMBT in 2002, no other MTB team has participated in the swift international pro biker circus with such continuity.

Thanks to our sponsors 2012

“There is nothing good – unless you do it”, as the famous German author Erich Kaestner (1899–1974) formulated his philosophy of life. A very similar phrase could be used with regard to the professional sports world: “There is no success – unless you have it”. For the MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM, this statement proves to be true already in the 11th year now – without any interruption and even in a double sense: Because our pro riders (continuously supported by the main sponsors MERIDA and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles – therefore one of the very few teams which have never been unnamed) have scored no less than nearly 40 World Cup wins so far. In addition, there are Olympic gold and silver medals, ten World Championship and eleven European Championship gold medals, countless vice titles and bronze medals, triumphs at prestige races and many other impressive achievements. But the MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM records another unique success as well: Its family-like character. Because the pro biker squad whose line-up has been existing nearly unchanged for eleven years now is more than a “motley crew” of internationally successful pro athletes. Instead, the MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM embodies a very homogeneous conglomerate which is not only busy with the collective title hunt on the world’s challenging race courses for most of the year: During these competition periods (per season more than 100 races in more than 20 countries on five continents), the athletes live and eat together while they are also sharing their training units and their leisure time. “Our key to success is the outstanding team spirit and the resulting continuity,” MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM manager Andreas Rottler knows for sure. Therefore it is also clear with regard to the future: Our pro riders will be successful as continuously as MERIDA and Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles will support the athletic efforts of the MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM. And at the same time, also you as a MERIDA customer will directly benefit from the fact that the female and male riders of the MULTIVAN MERIDA BIKING TEAM take their “working tools” to the limits of load capacity again and again: Via this method, they supply our experienced R&D specialists with valuable feedback – and finally enable the development of bikes which satisfy also your ultimate demands.

Wherever José Antonio Hermida Ramos appears, he radiates his humor and his charme – and, by the way, creates a big sensation among his competitors as well. For twelve years now, the Cross Country World Champion of 2010 has been riding continuously into the Top 5 of the Overall World Cup. Without exception or competition – because this brilliant feat has not been performed by any other Cross Country pro athlete so far. José Hermida rides MERIDA – and continues to do so. Thanks, José.
