Merlin Cycles (United Kingdom) - Press Release: The Merlin Inferno has been designed and built for out and out speed. Sprints, descents, time trial or triathlon this aero road bike is ready to perform. The Silhouette of our new Inferno is dominated by the wide aerodynamic lower tube with its "Kamm-tail" shape and is complemented by lowered seatstays for even more efficiency in the wind, these ultra-thin seatsatys reduce air resistance while providing some compliancy for an even more comfortable ride. The seatpost on the Merlin Inferno can be rotated 180 degrees to allow you to dramatically adjust your fore and aft position on the bike making it ideal for time trialists and triathletes while the addition of hydraulic disc brakes ensures braking remains predictable and consistent regardless of the weather and road conditions. Thru axles on the front and rear mean that wheel location is always accurate so that brake pads and brake rotors always align perfectly while also increasing stiffness and steering precision.
The Merlin Inferno frame is compatible with mechanical and electronic groupsets; all cables run neatly through the frame tubes with the hydraulic cable for the front disc brake also running inside the front fork and we have completed the Inferno specification with the brilliant Shimano Ultegra R8020 11 speed hydraulic disc brake groupset.
A choice of Fulcrum or Mavic wheels and other great finishing components lets you customise the finer details of this great handling carbon road bike before our Merlin workshop technicians custom build your bike to your own spec. Choose your preferred wheels & tyres, stem-length, handlebar profile, cassette, chainring options and more to tailor your dream disc brake carbon road bike specifically for you.
