The BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team continues to be equipped with the perfect array of MERIDA bikes for the upcoming 2019 season – providing the ideal machine for every stage and every riding style.

Three bikes are in the arsenal for the team – the MERIDA SCULTURA (Road Bike), the MERIDA REACTO (Aero Road Bike) and the MERIDA WARP TT (TT Bike). The bikes will not just represent the latest technology and level of innovation in road cycling but also visually represent the team perfectly.

‘The colour scheme and design of the three BAHRAIN MERIDA team-bike models SCULTURA, REACTO and WARP TT incorporates the national colours of Bahrain – red and white. The detailing shows some classic road-style features and will be easily recognisable in the peloton. In particular, in conjunction with the helmet and race-kit design, the team will have a striking appearance, on and off the bike.’ – explains Jürgen Falke, Director of Products at MERIDA bicycles.

Due to the demands of modern road racing which requires the perfect bike for every stage and race, as well as the different personal preferences and strength of the riders, the perfect choice of bike is an absolute necessity. Where every second counts, even the smallest advantage can make the difference between being victorious or not.

Climbers and demanding mountain stages require a super light bike, which combines comfort, agility and perfect power transfer while more powerful riders and sprinters, as well as fast and flat stages, favour a more aerodynamic bike with unparalleled power output and an aggressive riding position. And when the riders chase every second during the time trials of the Grand Tours the requirements vary once again. But the engineers of MERIDA have the perfect choice of bikes ready for the season.

 

MERIDA SCULTURA

Depending on terrain, weather conditions and personal preference the riders of the BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team can choose between the ‘classic’ rim brake version of the SCULTURA or the SCULTURA DISC which was presented and raced for the first time at Paris-Roubaix 2016. The SCULTURA DISC has very similar characteristics as its rim brake version in terms of weight (frame weight of just 940g in size 54cm), comfort and aerodynamics while offering the extra braking power and modulation of modern disc brakes and increased tyre clearance so that tyres of up to 28mm can be run.

 

 

MERIDA REACTO

Similarly to the two options of the SCULTURA, the riders of the BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team can also choose between two versions when it comes to the REACTO: rim or disc-brake option, allowing them to select the perfect aero bike depending on the course, weather conditions and personal preferences. Both REACTO versions where introduced in 2018 and the REACTO DISC features the same aerodynamic and comfort properties as the rim brake version, with the added bonus of extra braking power and modulation of modern disc brakes.

SCULTURA 2019

 

Presented for the first time in 2015, the SCULTURA is designed to be the lightweight ‘workhorse’ of the BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team. With an impressive frame weight of just 850g, the SCULTURA rim brake version sets new standards when it comes to acceleration and climbing ability. But the SCULTURA is much more than ‘a lightweight’. Despite its chain stays, which are just 400mm long and provide great agility, the bike can take up to 25mm wide tires to increase the excellent comfort even further. To top it all off – the SCULTURA is wind tunnel optimised and achieves aero readings that are not far away from those of a dedicated aero racer. Combined with its traditional virtues, this produces a SCULTURA that is undoubtedly one of the best road bikes in the world.

REACTO 2019

 

The REACTO is BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team rider’s choice when they are looking for the aero advantage. Our new REACTO was introduced in 2018 in order to be the most aerodynamic road bikes in MERIDA’s history. It was a tall order to improve the new REACTO; however, MERIDA’s R&D team have managed to improve the aerodynamics by 5 % over the previous model (that equates to around 8 Watts), while also keeping the frame weight under 1kg through slimming the tube diameters and introducing a new carbon layup. Comfort was improved as well, by redesigning the seat stays and adding even more compliance into the S-Flex seat post. Many hours of wind tunnel and CFD testing created the perfect aero bike. When every second count at the end of a long breakaway, the REACTO is helping to preserve energy with its aero performance and super stiff bottom bracket, making sure that all energy is turned into speed.

TIME WARP TT 2019

 

Newly designed and launched in the 2dn part of the 2018 season, the TIME WARP TT has seen dramatic improvements over its predecessor. Due to a new integrated carbon cockpit, full cable integration, aerodynamic brake housing and further frame design tweaks, the R&D team was able to reduce the aerodynamic drag by 9 Watts. Besides that, the overall weight was reduced by 400g, which has a significant impact on demanding and undulating time trial courses. Totally focussed on aerodynamic performance, no other MERIDA road bike has spent more time in the wind tunnel. Developed for BAHRAIN MERIDA Pro Cycling Team to use in the time trial stages of the World Tour, the frame is designed around ‘NACA Fastback’ tube profiles. A key feature on the TIME WARP TT is a modular cockpit which gives the rider the ability to adjust the aero position depending on personal preferences and race conditions.
