Merida Reacto 500 (2019)

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 ALUMINUM 
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 
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.
HFS - HYDRO FORMING SYSTEM 
Tubes are inserted into negative moulds and a hot emulsion of water and oil is forced through at pressure, enabling them to be formed into complex shapes.
TFS - TECHNO FORMING SYSTEM 
Technoforming is a mechanical forming process, shaping the tubes by using negative moulds, at times combined with an internal metal core.
NACA FASTBACK PROFILE 
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 
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.
INTERNAL CABLE 
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 
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.
DI2 READY 
Bikes/frames with the symbol ‘Di2 Ready’ are prepared for the installation of Di2 technology with battery mounting in the seat post or within the fork steerer.
