CF2 frame with more relaxed geometry than the CF4. Caliper version runs quick release hubs, Disc version has through axle for extra lateral stiffness and complete internal cable routing. Flat mount rear disc brake with disc cooler technology. The more extreme truncation of the teardrop shaped tubes enables perfect airflow at the lowest possible weight. Incredible readings while offering a lifetime warranty on all our frames, even when raced. The 25 mm tyres also offer improved comfort. The seat and chainstay profile and carbon lay-up schedule are adapted to work like a flat leaf spring, absorbing surface bumps and reducing vibrations.
Let's kick off by talking about that comfort. Even when you're riding on rough, pockmarked roads — and let's face it, that's likely to be a lot of the time — the Scultura delivers a smooth ride without the buzz often associated with bikes of this kind. If you're used to a typical hard-riding race bike, you'll be surprised at the degree to which the Scultura plasters over the cracks. The big jolts still come through, of course, but they're a little muted, and a lot of the high-frequency vibration doesn't get to you at all. How come?

This bike should be banned! Oh wait, it is banned — at least temporarily for the pros from Lampre-Merida.
Merida Scultura 6000
The Merida Scultura just feels right when you get on it. It's a bit of a bargain too when you consider the frame is being ridden in the pro peloton and weighs a claimed g. It's a hell of a lot of bike for the money. I had just dropped a Reynolds tubed test bike back to the office before getting aboard the Merida to ride home, and do you know what? For this revised version of the Scultura frameset Merida has concentrated on increasing comfort, and it's obviously paid off. The frame is handmade in Taiwan, and by tweaking the carbon layup in certain areas it has been able to bring in quite a bit of extra damping without sacrificing stiffness. The always feels planted; you know exactly what the bike's doing all of the time as there is so much feedback.
The previous model was released in , and the new Scultura is huge step forward in several key areas. It features carbon drop outs, is hand made from individual pieces, taking roughly 14 hours and going through 30 different hands. The Team Edition frame weighs roughly g for a size 56cm. By working closely with Lampre-Merida pro riders, the geometry has been refined to make the new Scultura more aggressive, with a lower front end and longer top tube. However this is not necessarily a negative, with Merida unashamedly keeping the price down by equipping an entry-level wheel set. What you are investing in is a premium quality frame fit for a pro.
Merida nailed their colours to the mast last spring by introducing the Scultura Disc ahead of Paris-Roubaix — and the super-light machine was one of the few disc-equipped bikes raced at the Queen of the Classics. Disc-equipped race bikes are very much the future, as far as Merida are concerned. We attended the launch of the Scultura Disc back in April and were impressed by the marriage of comfort and race-winning stiffness served up by the bike. However, Merida have extended the chainstays by 8mm over the rim brake Scultura to comfortably allow clearance for 28mm tyres — a key feature of the Scultura in its bid to provide a plush ride. The aluminium ribs, located on the chainstay, are said to result in a 35 per cent reduction in heat build-up to improve braking performance. Otherwise, the frame shares the same features, though neither of the two bikes based around the CF2 chassis get RAT quick release thru-axles.
