Slice through the air. The Merida Reacto 5000 disc is a carbon aero road race bike for rapid road riding over any distance.

Developed for the Lampre-Merida race team, the lightweight carbon fibre composite frame features aerodynamically shaped tubes that reduce drag alongside a race riding position so that you can ride faster. The ride is surprisingly smooth for such a dedicated speed machine thanks to the vibration damping Bio-Flax-Fibres that are incorporated into the frame. Nano matrix particles in the resin improves impact resistance while the full internal cable routing and chainstay mounted rear brake further improve the aero properties.

The Shimano Ultegra 2×11 speed drivetrain offers smooth shifting and is combined with an FSA Gossamer Pro semi compact chainset so you can really put the hammer down. 25mm tyres offer improved cornering grip as well as improving the ride.

Ride faster on the Merida Reacto 5000.

NANO MATRIX CARBON 2018 – 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%.
AWS 2018 – When creating the individual carbon elements, an inflatable bladder is used to ensure there are no wrinkles inside the tube as these can add weight and create weakness. This results in a lighter, stiffer and stronger frame.
CARBON FORK 2018 – 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.
X-TAPER HEADTUBE 2018 – 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.
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.
INTERNAL CABLE 2018 – 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.
DI2 READY 2018 – 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.
INTERNAL CLAMP 2018 – 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.
S-FLEX 2018 – Patent pending design. Carbon is good at absorbing vibration but to increase comfort we shape the seat posts using our exclusive S-Flex design.
DISC COOLER 2018 – A forged aluminium component under the front and rear caliper allowing heat to dissipate through CNC-milled cooling fins. Tests show that temperatures are reduced by around 35% and cooling times are shortened, optimising the performance of the brake.
12-142 THRU-AXLE 2018 – Selected front forks use a 100 mm wide through axle 12 or 15 mm in diameter to increase lateral stiffness. A 142 mm wide 12 mm rear axle fixed directly into the frame increases rear end stiffness whilst simplifying wheel removal and replacement.
12-100 THRU-AXLE 2018 – Selected front forks use a 100 mm wide through axle 12 or 15 mm in diameter to increase lateral stiffness. A 142 mm wide 12 mm rear axle fixed directly into the frame increases rear end stiffness whilst simplifying wheel removal and replacement.
