Merida is one of the world’s biggest bike manufacturers, producing 2.2 million machines a year – including some capable commuters

Merida is better known for its road racing and mountain bikes. Founder Ike Tseng wanted to improve the reputation and quality of bikes made in Taiwan, and performance-oriented bikes were and are an ideal benchmark for those ambitions. The company sponsors the Bahrain-Merida road racing team, which includes multiple Grand Tour winner Vincenzo Nibali, and the Merida Factory Racing mountain bike team. Its bike portfolio doesn’t only cater to sports cyclists, however, as its range of e-bikes and urban hybrids demonstrates. 

Merida began building bikes in that pivotal decade for mass manufacture, the 1970s. Like Giant, Merida’s original factory opened its doors in Taiwan in 1972, and like Giant it initially built bikes for other brands. First that was Raleigh bikes for the North American market. To facilitate this, Merida’s factory layout was based on that of Raleigh’s Nottingham factory.

In 1988 Merida started to make bikes under its own name, and it now has factories not just in Taiwan but also China and Germany, where its R&D team is based. You can get a feel for what Merida has been doing with both aluminium and carbon by checking out its list of frame technologies. Merida offers a lifetime frame warranty on bikes built since 2011.

Scultura Endurance 4000

Scultura Endurance 4000

Sitting between the Silex and Scultura in our road range, the Scultura Endurance is aimed at tarmac adventure riding. The Scultura Endurance geometry is perfectly suited to riders who want to enjoy long hours in the saddle while being comfortable and relaxed on the bike. 

Endowed with a modern frame design and comfort-orientated geometry the Scultura Endurance has a longer head tube creating a more upright and comfort-orientated seating position. The slacker head tube angle and slightly longer wheelbase give the bike more stability at speed. All Scultura Endurance models are equipped with powerful hydraulic disc brakes. Calipers are mounted via the flat mount standard for a neat, flush fit. Calipers sit on top of CNC'd aluminium Disc Cooler fins which reduce operating temperatures by up to 35%.
