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 400 Rim model is the perfect model for amateur riders looking to upgrade their current ride. It features the ever-popular 2 x 11-speed Shimano 105 groupset, which offers precise and reliable shifting with excellent control for an efficient and slick performance on the road. The standard 50-34T crankset and optimised 11-30T 11-speed cassette will ensure you have the best mix of climbing efficiency and flat-line speed so you’ll always have the optimum selected gear for maintaining 90RPM, regardless of the weather, terrain or fatigue. In order to keep weight to a minimum, and to provide a retro road riding feel, Merida has taken the decision to use rim brakes rather than disc brakes. if you talk to any climbing specialists or retro enthusiasts, they’ll tell you that nothing provides the same level of feedback as rim brakes – and they’re not wrong! You’ll find the Scultura Rim 400 really responds to every input so that you can be one with your bike and really be in cycling nirvana. To minimise rolling resistance, the smooth and durable 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 Rim 400 Road Bike is the ideal model for amateur riders that love climbing, descending and everything in between. With its nimble handling and optimised running gear, the Scultura Rim 400 makes light work of training rides or morning commutes.
