Full carbon bike for all activities. Awesome speed road geometry together with cross and mtb tires clearance. You don't need 3 specials for road, gravel or XC mtb. All you need is MERIT PLUS frame and a few pairs of wheels, cassettes or chain rings.
Dropped Chain Stay
Special rear fork and bottom bracket allow to use road crank set and together wide tires. This chain stay contributes to maximum rigidity of full carbon bottom bracket. 50 tooth chain ring is not a problem.
Fat Tire Clearance
For our maximum comfort during off road ride. Frame allows to use 700c x 42mm(1.6") and mtb 650b x 50mm(2.0") tires.
The headset is 1 1/8'' at the top and 1 1/2'' at the bottom. Thinner top saves weight while thicker bottom makes steering more stable.
Internal Cable Routing
We hide all shifting and brake cables inside – hidden routing looks great and guarantee top functionality for shifting. All is hidden against mud and dust.
After many years of bone shaking on broken roads and off roads, we can introduce completely new bike concept which is fast, nimble, stiff and comfortable on broken, dirt and forest roads or on the cobbles. Our frame combines - Light stiff carbon frame for the best weight and
rigidity - Aero road geometry for best maneuverability and aerodynamics - Road components compatibility for maximum power transmission. Altogether delivering maximum comfort on 650b mtb tires, allowing you to ride everywhere without shaking the soul out.
Merit Plus frame geometry use the best features from road and cross bikes like aerodynamics, narrow profile and good maneuverability altogether with wide tire clearance.
