Merida Reacto Disc 8000-E

Merida Reacto Disc 8000-E

  • £5,400.00


We set out to create an incredible aero bike, but without the downsides often associated with the category such as harshness and complex solutions that waste workshop time.

The result was “astonishingly comfortable” (Design & Innovation award 2018) and describes as “fast and responsive” and “an absolute peach” (Road CC).

There is only 1 watt difference in efficiency between the calliper and disc brake version, very little sacrifice for the improved braking and extra wheel stiffness due to the 12mm bolt through axles. 

The ultimate frame - CF4 carbon with aggressive ProTour proven geometry and the most expensive carbon lay-up. Slimmed down tapered head tube 1 1/8” to 1 ¼” and truncated NACA Fastback profile tubing for aerodynamics. BB386, 12 mm bolt through axles (RAT standard), flat mount disc standard with cooling fins – 1050g M/L +/- 3%, fork = 450g
