Triple butted 6066 aluminium frame, full carbon tapered fork with bolt thru axle, Shimano Tiagra drivetrain, TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes
The Merida Ride Disc 300 2016 Road Bike features the below technology;
X-Taper, Tapered head tube, 1 1/8ﾔ bearings in the top, 1.5ﾔ in the bottom, combined with a tapered fork give superb stiffness and precise steering.
SMOOTH WELDING, gives a superb clean organic look to the frame at first glance you will be convinced it is carbon.
TECHNO FORMING SYSTEM, We use a mechanical forming process, shaping the tubes by rolling and bending them from the outside
PROLITE 66, The highest grade aluminium used in bike manufacturing. Using three wall thicknesses we achieve the best possible stiffness to weight ratio.
15-100 THRU AXLE, A 15mm through axle increases lateral stiffness and therefore improves steering precision. Wheel alignment is also much easier.
CARBON FORK, We use only full carbon forks, the steerer and legs, reducing weight and delivering superb vibration damping and precise steering.
