Merida CROSSWAY 500 MY18
The Merida Crossway 500 is a high end hybrid bicycle that is ideal for avid cyclists looking for an upgrade or a second performance hybrid bicycle for comfortable, fast paced regular long distance riding. Features:
RACELITE 61 ALUMINIUM:
Use a minimum of 6061 aluminium. The pay back is that it’s possible to make lighter and more advanced frames. We use an additional heat treatment and double-butted wall thicknesses to produce light and stiff frames.
TFS – TECHNO FORMING SYSTEM:
Technoforming is a mechanical forming process, shaping the tubes by using negative moulds, at times combined with a metal internal core.
Sometimes called ‘double pass welding’, a second pass over the weld gives a clean organic look to the frame. At first glance you will be convinced it is carbon.
Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.
The suspension fork and/or rear shock can be locked, either directly or via a ‘remote control’ lever on the handlebar.
Post mount disc brake calipers fit directly onto the seat stay for a strong and light connection whilst a chainstay post mount positions the caliper on the chainstay within the rear triangle for extra protection and better distribution of braking forces. Another benefit is that internal cable routing is also easier and neater via the chainstay.
