Merida Cyclo Cross 600 2018 Bike
The Merida Cyclo Cross range offers road performance with aggressive off road features to tackle all types of terrain. Wide knurled tyres, disc brakes as standard, wide range 2x or 1x gearing and a geometry that puts the rider in a forward but comfortable attack position. Several models cater for different budgets and uses, from leisurely adventures to commuting to intense racing.
The Cross 600 is pretty high spec, aimed towards enthusiastic 'crossers with an eye for quality and the intention to utilise its high potential at organised events, smooth empty roads and anything in between. Equipped with hydraulic disc brakes, wide 33c Maxxis CX tyres, 1x11 SRAM Apex drivetrain, and built around a lightweight Merida Alloy frame with Carbon fork and seatpost to combat vibration. Additionally the 15mm front axle adds a considerable amount of lateral rigidity to the front, making sharp fast corners more predictable and negotiable, whilst leaving the 9mm rear with a little springiness.
