Merida Bikes

MERIDA 

 

MERIDA’s company founder Ike Tseng (1932–2012) was a very honour-able person and a real visionary. During a trip through the USA at the beginning of the 1970s, he discovered a note at the door of a bike shop stating that no bikes from Taiwan were accepted for repair due to bad quality. This annoyed Ike Tseng – and already shortly after, in September 1972, the first production plant of his company Merida Industry Co., Ltd. was opened in Yuanlin (Taiwan). The man whose life motto was “move with passion and courage” chose the name “Merida” intentionally: The rough translation of the three syllables “Me-Ri-Da” means that the company’s intention is to manufacture only beautiful and high-quality products enabling anyone to reach her or his destination as pleasantly as possible. But Ike Tseng wouldn’t have been himself if he had been satisfied with the successful realization of his plan to be able to offer high-quality bikes “Made in Taiwan”. So in 1988, he took the second big step by launching the independent brand MERIDA: In accordance with the corporate philosophy, the frames of a complete range of sophisticated and internationally recognized bikes should be graced deservedly by the three syllables “Me-Ri-Da”.

Up front the RockShox fork offers 100mm of smooth suspension travel to soak up the hits on the trail and features a lockout for efficiency on smoother surfaces.

Mountain Bike Features

ROAD BIKES

Merida road bikes are lightweight, stiff and strong for maximum efficiency on the tarmac. They're also surprisingly compliant for comfort too. Their years of frame building experience and knowledge gives Merida road bikes exceptional performance.

The Ride is their 'comfort racer' whilst the Scultura is the all-rounder and appeals to beginner / intermediate riders. The Merida Reacto is the standout road bike and is the model Team Lampre-Merida use for pretty much all their races.

MERIDA SCULTURA 200

 

 

Merida Scultura 200 Bike is a road bike that is great for beginners. The Scultura is a great all-round road option, that balances speed with long ride comfort. This makes it suitable for longer or shorter rides, training and racing. It has been fitted out with quality components, including Shimano's sure-shifting Sora drivetrain and a fast-rolling pair of alloy wheels clad in Maxxis treads, with a fat contact patch for confidence at speed and in the corners.


The Scultura frame platform is favoured by Team Lampre Merida in the UCI Pro Tour, meaning models throughout the series benefit from the research and technological innovation that goes into building a bike to perform at the highest level.
A tapered head tube provides more strength and stiffness through the front end of the bike, which means improved overall handling. Flex Stay technology in the rear allows the frame to offer some vertical movement, which is designed to absorb bumps and vibrations to create a more comfortable ride.


Internal cable routing provides a clean aesthetic as well as protecting the cables and prolonging their lifespan.

ABOUT ARBOR

 

Arbor started the skateboard division in 1998. For years Arbor had been turning old snowboards into skates to bomb hills when snow and surf was hard to find. Arbor rode at odd hours and freaked a few people out. In the end, those late nights launched a program that now offers a huge range of shapes for all types of skating. As you would expect, materials, shaping, art, and design all come together in the same tradition as our snowboards. Arbor Skateboards – handmade, quality woodcraft

ARBOR ACCESSORIES

Not only does Arbor comes with longboards, Arbor also provides various longboard and skateboard accessories such as wheels depending on what type of function its is use for.

 

GROOVETUBE SERIES
The Groovetube Series contains three performance downhill wheels built around proprietary shapes and our exclusive Groovetube Core.

This core design greatly improves performance across a range of conditions, improving grip, roll, and slide. Though wide and supportive, the Groovetube Core is only 35mm tall, which gives you more urethane on each wheel for longer wheel life.

The Vice is our offset freeride wheel. It was designed to deliver versatile slide performance at speed. Choose your line, release with ease, and conquer any surface. A stone ground finish improves slide performance right out of the box.

Penny Boards

ABOUT PENNY

A Penny board is a type of plastic skateboard, known within the industry as a short cruiser. The term "Penny" is synonymous with "Penny Skateboards", an Australian-based company founded in 2010 by Ben Mackay. Penny is a registered trademark for skateboards, but has been widely generalised to describe all small plastic skateboards due to the brand's popularity. Penny Skateboards revived the plastic skateboard category by pairing a high quality plastic deck with cruiser wheels and trucks. This combination now epitomises a "Penny board" in generic terms. Penny Skateboards was named after Ben Mackay's sister, Penny.
