Merida Scultura Disc 5000 (2017)
The 2017 Merida Scultura Disc 5000 is a high-end road bike. Its all-carbon frameset is performance-tuned, with aggressive geometry and stiff, short chainstays for highly efficient power transfer. Kit is commensurate: componentry includes Shimano's super-reliable Ultegra drivetrain, top-end RS805 hydraulic disc brakes, and Merida's own Expert wheelset, designed from the ground up to capably manage the stresses of disc braking and roll fast doing it. Continental Ultras offer secure footing and low rolling resistance.
A very good road racer.
