Merida is International Bicycle brand based in Taiwan that manufactures performance Bicycles, Cycling Accessories and Cycling Apparel. They specialize in designing and manufacturing road bicycles and MTBs that are used by many pro teams in International Races. We got an opportunity to review their latest 715ml Water Bottle, and here’s what we think.
The Merida Water Bottle is one of the newly launched series of Bicycle Accessories from the Cycling giant. Launched in mid 2019, the entire design of the bottle including the graphics has undergone a full revamp from its predecessors. With a capacity of 715ml (approx. 24 oz), the bottle is ideally sized for usage on mid distance to long dis-tance rides. Made of a food-grade soft plastic, the bottle is shaped to be easily grasped with one hand while riding and avoid slipping.
The bottle has a hard plastic cap fitted with a rubber push-pull nozzle that prevents water leakage when the nozzle is pushed down and sealed. The rubber nozzle makes it easy to sip the drink from the bottle, and the soft plastic body also helps in squeezing the liquid out of the bottle.
The Merida Water Bottle is designed to fit universally into bottle cages of all brands. The groove around the neck of the bottle helps in holding the bottle securely, and also serves to clamp the bottle into the bottle cage to prevent it from slipping out while riding. With bright colors and distances graphics, the bottle is designed to stand out, and also to match the color of the bicycle.The Merida Water Bottle is quite well sized for a capacity of 715ml, and is not too tall or too wide. Available in multiple colors like Green, Matte Black and a Transparent design, Merida has made sure that there is always a color available to match your bicycle with. The lightweight build and design of the bottle also means that it can be easily carried in gym bags, backpacks, etc.
For all Cyclists, a water bottle is a simple but an indispensable accessory, and the new sipper bottle from Merida makes sure that this indispensable accessory also looks cool enough to match the new slick looking Bicycles and Kits. Priced at Rs.290(as on 5th September 2019), this bottle is an inexpensive way to increase your bicycle’s cool quotient and at the same time stay hydrated too.
