The Reacto 500 is Merida's top-end aluminium aero race model for 2015. With its slick aero looks and design this road bike is designed to slice through wind and get you up to speed quickly and easily. It's a very light, stiff and balanced aero machine for beginner roadies and aspiring triathletes.
Merida's aluminium Reacto 500 features the same geometry of the higher level carbon fibre models and the same full carbon fork too. But using aluminium (very high grade alloy), Merida have managed to keep the price tag low - for an aero racer.
The frame is very high quality, made from 6066 aluminium alloy which is the best grade used in the industry. Add to that the unique NACA Fastback aerofoil design of the tubes which keep the Reacto aero and stiff yet reduce weight - Merida have chopped off the trailing point of the classic teardrop aero design. This also makes the Reacto a UCI legal option.
Where the 500 differs from the other 2 aluminium models is the upgraded spec including Shimano Ultegra groupset which is just one level below the professional standard Dura-Ace (featuring many of the same design elements - just a little heavier).
This is perhaps the best aluminium aero bike on the market for 2015.
