Merida has always been at the forefront of aero road bike design and its third generation Reacto builds on this expertise. Despite its edgy looks and leading aerodynamics, the Reacto Disc 6000 is an easy bike to live with, being plenty comfortable enough for longer rides and UK road surfaces. You get superb shifting from the Ultegra hydraulic groupset and the braking efficiency of discs and Merida’s cooling fins without, Merida says, significant aero disbenefits. The aero features do feel as if they give you a small extra turn of speed too.
