Merida 2017 Ride 4000 Carbon Black/Grey/Red 54cm
Designed for speed and distance riding, the Merida Ride 4000 road bike combines stiffness with comfort enhancing features to reduce fatigue on rough road surfaces.
At the heart of the Ride 4000 is an ultra lightweight composite carbon frame. Flex Stays are designed to offer vertical compliance to soak up vibrations while staying laterally rigid for efficient power transfer. The carbon fibres are bonded with an epoxy resin with added nano particles that improve impact resistance of the frame by 40%.
Geometry is optimised for endurance road cycling with a slightly shorter top tube and longer headtube that create a more comfortable upright riding position so your muscles stay fresher for longer.
The full carbon fork provides precise steering control while also absorbing road buzz for added comfort. Equipped is the performance level Shimano 105 2x11 speed drivetrain offering precise shifting over a wide range of gears.
The Ride 4000 sportive bike blends speed and comfort so you can perform at your best, whatever the challenge.
