“A performance focused all-rounder hybrid bicycle for fitness, commutes and touring purposes.”
– Vishnu Sharma
The Merida Crossway 100 is the first of Merida’s Sports Hybrid Bikes – a more efficient and performance-orientated design for avid riders looking for an efficient and comfortable daily ride for commuting and exploring! It still offers the incredible ride quality and creature comforts of the Merida Crossway 10-D and 20-D, however, has a vastly improved drivetrain and upgraded frame. The Crossway TFS II frame has been double-butted to ensure it is lightweight, yet still durable and features Merida’s premium Racelite 61 Aluminium for further weight savings. If this wasn’t enough, Merida have added a Suntour Front Suspension Fork to increase comfort, meaning you won’t have to worry about ruts and potholes causing you serious discomfort or jarring your arms and shoulders! If you find you’re cruising on establish bike paths, or climbing steep hills, the Suntour Nex fork featured on the Crossway 100 has a hydraulic lockout function so you don’t waste precious energy in the moments you need it most. Equally, the Merida Branded Suspension Seat Post on the Crossway has a wider diameter meaning it better absorbs road feedback (than the Crossway 10-D), providing a plush ride that belies its performance orientation. Moreover, it means you can ride without having to worry about wearing lycra or bike-specific clothing – not only does this mean less chance of chafing, but it also prevents you from spending unnecessary amounts on expensive cycling clothing! With the Merida Crossway 100, you can just hop on and ride away, it’s a simple and timeless proposition!
With the Merida Crossway 100, you’ll find it’s a great upgrade over the Merida Crossway 20-D thanks to the inclusion of Shimano Hydraulic Disc Brakes and a more efficient, road orientated drivetrain. Indeed, the 27 Speed Shimano Alivio Drivetrain features a wider gear range and additional mid-range sprocket for easier climbing and more comfortable cruising. Since it’s a road orientated drivetrain, it also features a more efficient shifting mechanism and lighter components to help reduce the weight of the Crossway 100. Moreover, Merida have chosen to feature Shimano Hydraulic Disc Brakes which offer more power and greater modulation in comparison to the TEKTRO Brakes offered on the Crossway 20-D. Overall, you can expect to come to a stop in a significantly shorter distance when you really need it, offering you the confidence and assurance that you’re always in control! In the meantime, the Crossway 100 rolls on super wide 40c Maxxis Overdrive Trekking tyres which offer incredible levels of grip, regardless of weather or temperature. In contrast, you’ll find that they really soak up rough surfaces while simultaneously increasing your rolling efficiency for a supple ride! Finally, the Crossway 100 has been finished with a combination of Merida branded components to ensure reliability and longevity. The Merida Crossway 100 is the perfect bike for riders wanting the efficiency of a road bike with the exploration ability of a mountain bike. Designed for commuting and multi-day adventures, with the Merida Crossway 100 Hybrid Bike, you’ll find yourself exploring past your city boundaries further and further without realising!
CROSSWAY TFS II ALLOY FRAME
The perfect blend of road and mountain bike design and functionality results in a versatile performance model. Constructed using Merida’s premium Racelite 61 Aluminium, the Crossway TFS II frame is lightweight, durable and soaks up vibrations for a supple ride. During construction, Merida used technoform technology and double butting to keep the frame as light as feasible. While the oversized tubing and tapered head tube provide superb stiffness and optimum steering precision. Finally, the Crossway has been equipped with integrated mounts for racks, mudguards and a kickstand.
Equipped with a Suntour Front Suspension Fork and Merida-branded suspension seat posts to smooth out any rough surfaces, ruts and bumps. With an included hydraulic lockout function, your forward momentum won’t be hampered on tough climbs or flat sections, meaning you can expend your energy where you need it – through the tyres! Adjustable stems are also fitted to provide a custom riding position for maximum rider comfort. While Hydraulic Disc Brakes ensure you remain in control, and thus comfortable no matter the terrain or gradient!
27 Speed Shimano Alivio Drivetrain offers road bike efficiency and provides a wide range of gears suitable for all applications – whether you’re cruising around the city or conquering your local hill – you’ll be able to ride around without breaking so much as a sweat! The Suntour Fork features a lockout function that can be engaged to ensure energy isn’t wasted on smooth roads or steep climbs!
