2021 Merida REACTO FORCE EDITION

To offer maximum control and braking performance, the new REACTO comes equipped with disc brakes throughout the range. We use flat mount disc brake standards in combination with our 'Disc Cooling' technology at the front and rear for the best braking performance. A flat mount rear caliper is mounted on the chainstay which is better for dissipating braking forces but also keeps it protected inside the rear triangle.
Our high-performance carbon models with the CF5 frame feature a completely cable integrated Vision Metron 5D ACR carbon cockpit, improving aerodynamics and offering a super clean silhouette and cockpit area. The CF3 models with electronic shifting feature a two-piece aluminium cable integrated cockpit consisting of a Vision ACR SMR stem combined with a MERIDA EXPERT CW handlebar. All three cockpit options provide a very clean, organic and modern appearance.
With aerodynamic optimisation at the fork, seat stays and a cable integrated cockpit the new REACTO offers even better values than its already class-topping predecessor.
The 12 mm bolt through axles for greater wheel stiffness and precise disc alignment when replacing wheels. The custom axle lever is removable and has a 4 mm Allen key included, so, for example, stem and seat post clamps can be tightened and loosened.
All models feature a full carbon fork with a tapered steerer to give precise, confidence-inspiring steering. All SCULTURA Alloy and CF2 carbon models feature a ‘regular’ 1 1/8" to 1 1/2" taper. The high-end SCULTURA CF4 frame has a slimmed down front profile and uses a 1 1/8" to 1 1/4" taper, the new REACTO frames a 1 1/2" to 1 1/4"taper.
A forged aluminium part under the front and/or rear disc brake caliper draws heat away through CNC-milled cooling fins giving 35 % less heat build-up and faster temperature reduction for a stable braking performance.
Comfort has always been a key feature of the REACTO. Many aero bikes suffer from a harsh ride due to the larger tube sections and seat posts. Not so on the REACTO, where our profiled seat post behaves like a conventional seat post providing a significant level of comfort amongst other aero bikes.
