For those who follow the Pro Tour you may have seen the Reacto was the bike of choice for the majority of Team Bahrain Merida for most of the the Tour De France this year.That’s because this bike is designed to minimise the effect of air resistance on the bike, maximising speed without sacrificing other factors such as weight, stiffness and comfort.
This means the Reacto retains the versatility and comfort of a road bike, but takes off when you put the foot down, and holds well at high speed. This balance makes it a particularly appealing option for triathletes, as it takes some of its cues from a time trial bike, while still having that versatility of a road bike that can be ridden anywhere. The Reacto DA Limited, comes spec’d with a Shimano Dura Ace 9100 series drivetrain. Offering unparalleled mechanical shifting performance, every gear change will feel as smooth as butter in the way only Dura Ace can offer.
The Vision Metron 55 carbon clincher wheels offering outstanding value and performance. Wheels of this calibre are not normally fitted to bikes as standard, but Merida has blown the competition out of the water by including these as factory equipment. The 55mm deep wheels provide a huge aero advantage, but aren’t so deep that they should be affected too much by a cross wind.
