Merida has three options of multi-tools available locally. The 20 in 1 pictured above is the top of the line with a full set of tools for a host of road side fixes as well as a detachable chain break for easy use and 2 tyre levers. For a less demanding job, the 12 in 1 and the 10 in 1 are lightweight tools for quick fixes on the go. The range of accessories includes easy to use ergonomic tyre levers that can withstand a fair amount of force for those stubborn tubeless setups and a cool tool can make sure you never misplace another part when working on your bike.
If you’re looking for a budget-friendly floor pump that’s well built and delivers a decent amount of pressure the Merida Eco pump is it. The steel construction and durable steel barrel feel sturdy when applying force and the large 2.5” gauge is clearly visible. The valve head works on both Presta and Shrader valves. For a smaller trail friendly pump the lightweight CNC’d aluminium pump is light and small enough to be stored in your jersey pocket or you could use the frame mount provided with the pump. The aluminium body is strong and built to withstand years of abuse.
Whilst water bottle cages may be a bit of a boring subject Merida has stepped it up a notch by offering an aluminium side pull bottle cage that’s easy to get your bottle in and out of on a bumpy road at an affordable price. The traditional straight pull bottle cages are available in alloy and a very stealth looking carbon version for those weight weenies. A full range of water bottles is available in 600CC and 700CC in green, black and clear to match your ride.
A range of accessories is available for the road racers. Replacement microfibre bar tape with SHOCKPROOF material, optimises shock absorption.

Cyclo-computers that are wired and wireless are available with an extensive list of functions and high visibility lights that are lightweight, water-resistant and constructed from aluminium will keep you visible on the road.
