The Merida Scultura 500 is a mid-level carbon frame road bike designed for the everyday rider that wants to get serious with a carbon frame bike. The Scultura 5000 is the ideal bike for those that want to focus on improving their performance on the road. This bike is built to go fast and handle well, but with a much more comfortable position and feel than one might expect. The proven Scultura CF2 frame is remarkably light and durable. The fibres are bonded together with an epoxy resin and added nano particles to increase impact resistance by up to 40%. While an inflatable bladder is used in construction to ensure there are no wrinkles inside the tube as these can add weight and create weakness. This results in a lighter, stiffer and stronger frame.
While a tapered head tube with 1 1/8" bearings in the top and in the bottom also creates excellent stiffness and precision steering. The cables are hidden internally to give it that neat and tidy look and protect the cables. It is equipped with carbon forks, which provide superb vibration damping and enhance control, the steerer and fork blades are all made of carbon.
The Scultura 500 uses a Shimano Ultegra groupset, which offers a higher level of quality and performance compared to many comparable road bikes. It comes Di2 ready in case you wish to upgrade to an electronic shifting system. The wider Continental Grand Sport Race 25mm tyres will improve comfort, further acting to dampen vibration felt through the bike. It is important that you are comfortable while you ride and the Scultura 500 makes sure that you are looked after. Feeling comfortable while riding will help you enjoy riding much more and will reduce fatigue to give you an overall better performance.
