The Merida Scultura Force Road Bike is a high performance carbon road bike that runs a crisp SRAM Force Groupset. High end performance on the road all starts with Merida's CF2 Carbon Frame which gives you a smooth, vibration killing ride that can act as the training or race day bike for the everyday rider. If you're rolling on an elite carbon machine you want a quality groupset and you can't go wrong with the unique 2x12 speed SRAM Force eTap Groupset. The electronic shifting is incredibly smooth and precise on every gear change and offers an all-around awesome riding experience, packing a 48-35 crankset and 10-33 cassette.
You'll be putting that power through the Reynolds AR 41 DB Wheels and Continental Grand Sport Race Tyres which give you a good combination of grippy control and fast rolling speed. Disc brakes now come as standard on the Scultura and the Force rolls with SRAM ED Force eTap AXS Hydraulic Disc Brakes for all-weather control and it certainly gives you some extra confidence on the road. The finishing kit is almost all Merida and it still has a very clean look and fast feel. The main difference between the Force and the rest of the range is that it is the only SRAM model and the only 12 speed model in the range. The Merida Scultura Force combines comfort with speed and a SRAM Groupset, more than capable on long climbs or getting up some serious speed on the flat.
Aero Profiled Tubing: Our wind tunnel learnings from the REACTO design project have been used to create a smaller aerodynamically optimised ‘NACA Fastback’ tube profile. The more extreme truncation of the teardrop shaped tubes enables perfect airflow at the lowest possible weight.
Precise Steering: All SCULTURA models feature a full carbon fork with a tapered steerer to give precise confidence-inspiring steering. Alloy and CF2 carbon models feature a ‘regular’ 1 1/8" to 1 1/2" taper. The high-end CF4 frame has a slimmed down front profile and uses a 1 1/8" to 1 1/4" taper.
Bolt Through Axles: All SCULTURA DISC bikes feature 12 mm bolt through axles for greater wheel stiffness and precise disc alignment when replacing wheels. The axle lever is removable and has a 4 mm Allen key included, so for example stem, seat post clamp screws can be tightened and loosened.
Disc Cooling Technology: A forged aluminium part under the rear disc brake caliper draws heat away through CNC-milled cooling fins giving 35 % less heat build-up and faster temperature reduction for a stable braking performance.
Tyre Clearance: The SCULTURA DISC version can be fitted with 28 mm wide tyres, providing maximum traction and transferring the improved braking power to the road. The maximum tyre width for the rim version is 25 mm.
