Product Description

Slice through the air. The Merida Reacto 400 is a lightweight aero road bike that offers a fast and efficient ride.

With its aerodynamically profiled tubes, one piece seatube and a proper race riding position the triple butted 6066 aluminium frame offers a real aero advantage. The oversized bottom bracket adds lateral stiffness for efficient power transfer when you put the hammer down. All this is achieved in a lightweight package that offers real comfort for long days in the saddle. The full carbon race fork offers precise steering as well as absorbing road buzz for a smooth ride.

The Shimano 105 2x11 speed drivetrain offers slick shifting and is combined with a semi-compact chainset so you can really put the hammer down. 25mm tyres improve cornering grip as well as offering a smoother ride.

Ditch the drag to cycle faster on the Merida Reacto 400.

  • 6066 alloy frame features aero tubes for reduced drag

A superb bike, but make sure it's for you

I bought this, torn between the reacto and the scultura. I wanted to try an aero bike and it looks and feels great so went with it. The first thing is the riding position is low, even on the top bars, and on the drops it is insane. I hadn't ridden this low before and it does take some miles to get used to. But when you do WOW. The bike feels fast, I can happily get 40km/h on the flat (I'm not an experienced rider), considerably quicker than my Trek Domane. The flip side is, due to being slightly heavier, the acceleration feels slower than the Trek. So, for long rides the Merida is great, for City commutes with many traffic lights perhaps less so. It's still light enough to get up hills (thoughest I do is a 1:10 uphill and it's comfortable to get up. Gears shift smoothly, brakes better than my Trek (suspect there are better out there though). A minor thing is that your rear light needs to go much lower (next to the wheels) as seat post doesn't fit standard lights. I'm not a great cyclist but I do feel like I fly by many other bikes on this and that's a nice feeling. The build is excellent imho and the red and black looks incredibly sleek. It may take some adjustment to ride,and would be an idea to test before you buy to see if it is for you, but I think it is fully worth it and I wouldn't now change it for anything in a similar price band.

Merida Reacto

Just bought this bike and have been out on it twice. This bike offers plenty of gears for you to attack the straights and also the hill climbs. Easy to use gear changing on the brake levers. Overall a top quality bike. Would recommend.
