RACELITE 61 ALUMINUM
We use a minimum of 6061 aluminum. The pay back is that it's possible to make lighter and more advanced frames. We use an additional heat treatment and double-butted wall thicknesses to produce light and stiff frames.
TFS - TECHNO FORMING SYSTEM
Technoforming is a mechanical forming process, forming the tubes by using negative molds, at times combined with an internal metal core.
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.
Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, while the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.
DOWN TUBE EXIT
Ensures internally routed cables and wires.
CS POST MOUNT DISC
Post mount disc brake calipers fit directly onto the seat for a strong and light connection. Another benefit is that internal cable routing is easier and neater via the chainstay.
'F-Mount' equipped bikes have integrated fittings for mud guards, making fitting fast and simple.
MERIDA kick stands on the chainstay.
'C-Mount' equipped bikes have the fixing points for a rear rack already integrated (some bikes require model specific rear rack), making fitting fast, simple and reliable.
The suspension fork and / or rear shock can be locked, either directly or via a remote control lever on the handlebar.
