Fast and lightweight, the new Merida Speeder 400 shares its genes with their leading road bikes. The geometry is sporty yet comfortable with a more upright seating position.

Paired with flat bars and powerful hydraulic disc brakes the Speeder is an ideal commuting bike. The 400 features an 11-speed Shimano 105 groupset and as with other Speeder models, the frame can accommodate wider tyres making it more versatile - up to 37mm (32mm with mudguards) - and hydraulic disc brakes for all-weather reliability and come with a tapered carbon fork for lightweight and steering precision.

Comfortable Yet Sporty Geometry

Since its redesign for the 2020 season, the SPEEDER has become more sporty. By increasing the length of the top tube, Merida has achieved a slightly longer reach, which offers the rider a more sportive riding position while still being on the comfortable side. Furthermore, this geometry change leads to a longer wheelbase, which has a positive effect on directional stability and in combination with the slightly slacker head tube angle, improves the riding stability at speed.

Hydraulic Disc Brakes

All models SPEEDER models now include powerful and easy to modulate hydraulic disc brakes. Hydraulic disc brakes offer great stopping power in any weather, are more or less maintenance-free and are not affected by rough or kinked cables.

Let's Go Wide

The new SPEEDER has the ability to take up to 37 mm wide tyres, increasing the ride comfort as well as the grip (and therefore safety). Wider tyres also offer improved puncture protection. Even with fenders being fitted, the SPEEDER can still take up to 32 mm wide tyres.

Sophisticated Frame

Merida uses 6066 series aluminium, the highest level generally used in bike production. Its metallic composition allows it to be extensively hydroformed (a process of forcing a hot emulsion of water and oil through tubes in a negative mould). This allows us to vary wall thicknesses and tune the frame to be both strong where it is needed and flexible where required.

Internal Cable Routing

Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. Only a clever system for Merida's internal guiding and fixing guarantees reliable and rattle free routing, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt and gives the bike a cleaner look.

Carbon Fork

Carbon has great vibration absorbing properties in addition to being lightweight, so ride quality is improved. The carbon tapered steerer provides great stiffness to the front end of the bike, delivering precise and confidence-inspiring handling.

Prolite 66 Triple Butted Aluminum

Merida's proven high-end aluminium (6066) is extremely light and durable. Using triple butted wall thicknesses and hydroforming technology, Merida can tune the aluminium tubes to give the best possible stiffness to weight ratio.

HFS - Hydro Forming System

Tubes are inserted into negative moulds and a hot emulsion of water and oil is forced through at pressure, enabling them to be formed into complex shapes.

TFS - Techno Forming System

Technoforming is a mechanical forming process, shaping the tubes by using negative moulds, at times combined with internal metalcore.

X-Taper Headtube

Merida's X-Tapered headtube offers the space for a tapered fork to be fitted. Tapered forks offer superb stiffness and precise and deliver confidence-inspiring steering.

Smooth Welding

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.

Internal Cable Routing

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.

Downtube Exit

Ensures that internally routed cables and wires can’t move freely and remain easily accessible for servicing.
