Merida Reacto 5000 (2019)

Merida Reacto 5000 is a performance oriented aero road bike, best suited to road riders or triathletes looking to take their riding or racing to the next level. 

For those who follow the Pro Tour, 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 5000 comes spec’d with Shimano Ultegra gearing, this means you get precise shifting and a smooth feel, helping to maintain a smoother pedal stroke through gear changes. A semi-compact crankset from FSA offers a good blend of useable climbing gears without sacrificing top end speed.

The bike also includes the direct mount brake callipers. Having two anchor points where the brakes attach to the bike rather than just one as you would find on a conventional setup, provides increased feel and stopping power. 

The Merida Reacto 5000 is an aero road bike that strikes a perfect blend of performance and price, ideal for the road rider or triathlete looking to take their riding to the next level. All Merida bikes come with a lifetime warranty. This means frames are guaranteed to be free from material or manufacturing defects for the entire ownership for the original owner.

NANO MATRIX CARBON 
To protect the integrity of carbon frames, the fibres are bonded together with an epoxy resin with added nano particles, increasing impact resistance by up to 40%.
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.
