The Merida Reacto 9000 Road Bike is a top-of-the-line aero race bike that pairs the award-winning Reacto frame with high-end electronic Shimano shifting for a bike that is built for racing. The Reacto is a high-performance aero road bike with stable ride characteristics which allows you to ride in relative comfort for such a performance-focused bike. The CF5 Carbon aero frame and CF5 fork of this efficient road machine, offer stiffness and stability while providing vibration dampening to make this a perfect ride even on cobblestones or the pothole-filled country back roads you train on.
The cutting-edge Shimano Ultegra Di2 12 speed wireless groupset leave your cockpit uncluttered and the 11-30t cassette allows you to tackle any terrain. Shimano’s Ultegra Di2 gives you instant, lightning-fast shifting that is precise and controlled at the push of a button meaning you can shift with confidence while putting out the watts.
The front and rear integrated disc coolers prevent overheating so that you can get the most out of the Shimano Ultegra Hydraulic Disc Brakes. Rolling on Reynolds Aero 65 wheels and Continental Grand Prix tyres, and with clearance for 30mm tyres, it is no wonder the Merida Reacto was called ‘an utterly brilliant and faultless machine’ by Cyclingnews.

INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING
With internal cable routing, you have the benefit of a modern clean look while preventing rust and fraying of your cables. The lack of external cables also reduces drag, making your bike that bit faster!
The X-Tapered headtube on this bike provides room for a tapered fork to be fitted. Tapered forks provide superb stiffness and precise confidence-inspiring shifting, with this setup you’ll be able to navigate streets and corners with ease!
The 2nd gen disc coolers are integrated into the frame and fork to minimise drag and reduce the risk of the disc brakes overheating on long descents. The forged aluminium part under the front and rear disc brake caliper draws heat away through CNC-milled cooling fins for 35% less heat build-up and faster temperature reduction.
