Merida Speeder 400 2022 Frame

The 2022 Merida Speeder 400 combines a Road Bicycle’s speed and maneuverability with an upright riding position for better handling and visibility on urban roads. The triple-butted aluminum frame is sturdy but relatively light with a chunky Tapered headtube, which adds to the Bicycle’s sleek appearance and the internal cabling means that all cables are protected from grease, dirt and water.

The full carbon fork is bladed and that not only shaves weight of the frame but also makes the Bicycle even more aero in performance. The CF2 carbon bladed rigid fork also helps in keeping the front part of the bicycle lightweight.

Merida Speeder 400 2022 Design

The Bicycle I test rode came in a matte finish full Dark Grey colour with Black as the secondary colour. The smooth welds and sleek tubes with the bladed fork made the Bicycle “aero” in appearance. The internal cable routing through the frame not only saved the cables from dirt but also made the bicycle look neat.

Merida Speeder 400 2022 Gearing

Technically the Speeder 400 is classified as a Flat bar Road Bicycle. Which means this Bicycle can give you the same performance output as a Road Bicycle but with a comfortable ride geometry. This road focused Hybrid Bicycle comes with 2x11-Speed Shimano 105 derailleurs. The derailleurs worked smoothly and were perfectly suited for rapid shifting to accelerate on flat roads. The 105 shifters were easy to use and responded quickly.

Merida Speeder 400 2022 Brakes and Steering

Stopping quickly is one of the most important attributes a Bicycle must have when tackling city traffic and on fast highway rides. The Speeder’s Tektro M275 Hydraulic Disc brakes are powerful, reliable and consistent in all conditions, so you can ride with confidence in both wet and dry conditions. The disc brakes felt balanced and helped in quick halts.

The Merida Expert CC 600mm Alloy handlebar was completely flat. This made the ride geometry aggressive and ideal for easy acceleration and speed.

Merida Speeder 400 2022 Wheels and Saddle

The Speeder 400 rolls on a pair of Maxxis Detonator 700x32C tires. Offering reasonable grip and puncture resistance, these tires are well suited for this road- focused hybrid. While they are not the fastest rolling treads going, they are dependable in a range of conditions.

The Merida Comp SL stock Saddle may be flat and thinly padded, but its generous width makes it comfortable.

This Flat bar Road Bicycle was fast and had a good balance of performance and comfort. This Bicycle has a minimalist approach to design, and is complemented by the performance componentry to give you a light and fast ride. If you are looking for a Bicycle as good as a Road Bicycle but with lesser aggressiveness, then the Merida Speeder 400 (2022) is the perfect choice for you.
