Road bikes


When it comes to riding performance, the MERIDA REACTO Disc 8000-E clearly sets itself apart from the competition. The precise and smooth handling inspires confidence on downhills, while the stiff frame with its well-thought out spec accelerates fast. Despite the deep aero rims, this 7.67 kg disc aero bike climbs superbly. Clever features such as cooling fins on the brake pads, a simple seat-clamp, and the integrated FSA cockpit prove that the engineers at MERIDA fully understand the needs of the modern racing cyclist. And if that wasn’t enough, the € 6,499 MERIDA REACTO Disc 8000-E is also astonishingly comfortable, which is a huge advantage on longer rides. If this version is not “pro” enough for you, the REACTO is also available in the BAHRAIN MERIDA team edition.

Weight: 7.67 kg | Price: € 6,499
