The Merida Reacto Track 500 is a proper track/fixed wheel style bike built for junior track cyclists and entry level riders. It is made with a UCI compliant Reacto Lite Track frame and is built to perform. Made from high-end aluminium (6066), it is extremely light and durable. It is made with triple butted wall thickness and hydroforming technology to tune the aluminium tubes so that it has the best possible stiffness to weight ratio. The aerodynamics are based around a NACA0028 teardrop profile (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics) which is truncated. Air moves around the tube as though the missing rear section of the teardrop were still there, saving weight by using less material. While a tapered head tube with 1 1/8" bearings in the top and 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" in the bottom also improves stiffness and gives you precise steering you can ben confident in. The frame is finished internal cabling and double pass welding, to give it that sharp carbon-like appearance.
The sliding dropouts provide adjustable and precise chain tension regardless of your gear ratio and the full carbon aero fork with a tapered steerer tube gives you excellent control and precise handling on the track or road. The Merida Reacto Track 500 comes at an entry-level price but is great value for any aspiring track cyclist.
Prolite 66 Triple Butted Aluminium 2019: Our proven high-end aluminium (6066) is extremely light and durable. Using triple butted wall thicknesses and hydroforming technology, we can tune the aluminium tubes to give the best possible stiffness to weight ratio.
Carbon Fork 2019: Carbon forks provide superb vibration damping and precise steering. All road bikes feature a full carbon fork; the steerer and fork blades are all made of carbon.
NACA Fastback Profile 2018: The aerodynamics are based around a NACA0028 teardrop profile (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics) which is truncated. Air moves around the tube as though the missing rear section of the teardrop were still there, saving weight by using less material.
Smooth Welding 2018: Sometimes called ‘double pass welding’, a second pass over the weld gives a clean organic look to the frame. At first glance you will be convinced it is carbon.
X-Taper Headtube 2019: Using a tapered head tube with 1 1/8" bearings in the top and 1 1/4" or 1 1/2" in the bottom creates superb stiffness and precise, confidence inspiring steering.
Internal Cable 2019: Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.
Internal Clamp 2019: Designing WorldTour bikes is similar to Formula 1: apparently nondescript details can result in saving split seconds. Integrated seat-post clamping minimises turbulence at the top tube.
