Merida might be one of the newer brands to the World Tour, but the brand has been making bicycles since 1972, initially as an Original Equipment Manufacturer. It is in fact, one of the largest bicycle manufacturers in the world.

Merida Founder Ike Tseng established the company with the goal of improving the reputation and quality of bikes made in Taiwan. To this day, the company still makes all of its bikes by hand at their own factory in Taiwan. In 1988, the company created its own brand of bicycles, Merida, and has since established a central research and development team in Germany.
