With updated geometry for 2022, the Merida Scultura is the same capable road bike you know and love, but now with the most aerodynamic frame ever seen on a Scultura. Comfortable enough for all-day adventures, yet fast and lightweight enough for race day, the CF3 carbon frame boasts the same race-proven geometry as the Reacto range. With the vibration dampening carbon frame and fork, and the slick Continental GP5000 TR tyres, the Scultura is an enviable and durable race bike.
The Merida Scultura 7000 Road Bike builds on the excellent platform of the Scultura Rival Edition, featuring Merida Team SL45 tubeless-ready Carbon wheels for increased efficiency, aerodynamic gains and better feedback. It's still a celebration of SRAM's latest and most affordable road drivetrain: the exceptional SRAM Rival 2 x 12-speed groupset with an optimised 48-35T crankset and wide 10-36T cassette. As the new workhorse of the SRAM range, the Rival groupset provides smooth, precise and quick shifting on every ride without breaking the bank. Some riders have even suggested that they don't notice the difference from models equipped with the mid-range SRAM Force drivetrain. As with all SRAM drivetrains, you receive Hydraulic Disc Brakes that offer increased power and responsive braking for enhanced control and confidence on all gradients, terrains, and weather conditions. Merida has equipped the Scultura 7000 with FSA finishing kit so that you can fine-tune the fit to your exact specifications for increased comfort and more efficient transfer of power. As a result, you'll find the Scultura 7000 responds to every minute input and provides the perfect amount of feedback so that you can really become one with your bike. To finish, the Scultura 7000 features Merida's nifty wire port which allows the cables to be neatly routed into the frame, leaving the cockpit clean and uncluttered.
The Merida Scultura 7000 is the perfect introduction to wireless drivetrains, with SRAM's new Rival eTap AXS drivetrain offering riders the most affordable electronic drivetrain to date while ensuring a clean, aesthetic cockpit design. It offers a neat upgrade on the Rival Edition, with the lighter wheels and smart finishing kit ensuring you can ride faster and be more efficient than ever before. When combined with the aerodynamic prowess of the Reacto, the Scultura 7000 is a slick road bike that can go all day and offers the speed needed for when you want to put yourself to the test and lay down the power.
