The Merida Scultura packs a punch, combining the aerodynamic prowess of the Reacto with the lighter weight and shorter wheelbase of seasoned climbing bikes. The result is a nimble and lightning-quick road bike ready to climb, descend or just roll through flat sections.
The Scultura 300 model is the perfect starting model for amateur riders looking to take the next step in their riding adventure. It features the smooth 2 x 10-speed Shimano Tiagra groupset, which offers crisp and precise shifting with brilliant control for an efficient and fast-rolling performance on the road. The standard 50-34T crankset and optimised 12-28T 10-speed cassette will ensure you have the wide range to climb mountains with ease, and equally, you’ll have the optimum gear for maintaining 90RPM on the flat, regardless of the weather, terrain or fatigue. In order to improve performance in all weather conditions and over extended descents, Merida has taken the decision to include hydraulic disc brakes for superior power, modulation and feedback. If you’re serious about sending it on the descents or riding in all weather conditions, then you need your brakes to back you up without fail everytime. You’ll find the Scultura Rim 100 really responds to every input to put you in cycling nirvana. To minimise rolling resistance, the smooth 700 x 25c Maxxis Pursuer tyres have been specced to give you raw speed and durability. While the tubeless-ready Merida Comp SL Rims will mean small punctures won’t prevent you from finishing your ride.
The Merida Scultura 300 Road Bike is the ideal model for amateur riders that love climbing, descending and everything in between. With its nimble handling, the Scultura 300 will make light work of weekend rides or morning commutes. Merida has also included additional safety features alongside edgy and innovative technology to instil confidence and help you to unleash your potential in the saddle. So get out there and ride fast, whatever the weather or terrain may throw your way with the Merida Scultura 300.
The fork features a tapered steerer, you’ll have precise and confident steering. With carbon’s special properties you’ll gain great lateral stiffness for control and vertical tolerances which enable a more absorbent more comfortable ride. Best of both worlds!
BOLT THROUGH AXLES
Through axles enable greater lateral wheel stiffness meaning better control and performance, through axles also provide precise disc brake alignment making removing your wheels easier than ever. While through axles offer a range of performance benefits they also look great offering a cleaner more integrated look than a standard quick release axle.
HYDRAULIC DISC BRAKES
Disc Brakes provide you with better braking performance in all conditions, unlike rim brakes which can be heavily impacted by dust and water, disc brakes maintain control in all conditions. These brakes give you confidence that you’ll stop when you need to and with a hydraulic system you will have greater control and and have better feedback through your levers, hydraulic systems aren’t prone to cable stretch and self adjust as your brake pads wear down – meaning you can focus on the riding!
