Bike Discounts UK - Merlin Cordite SL Ultegra R8000 Mix Carbon Road Bike - 2018
Merlin Cordite SL Ultegra R8000 Mix Carbon Road Bike - 2018 The Merlin Cordite SL is our versatile, lightweight carbon road bike which has been specifically engineered to perform excellently in Sportives, all-day epic rides and even your local weekly crit race. Our 2018 version of the Merlin Cordite SL mixes rider-friendly geometry with clever carbon fibre engineering to put you in a neutral position on the bike while isolating you from road buzz and rough road surfaces thanks to its cleverly engineered seatstays that give a little extra compliancy. The Cordite can be successfully raced too, being particularly light and responsive. To achieve this we combined the Cordite’s compliant features with a large downtube and bottom bracket junction as well as super-stiff chain stays to create a frame that is not only comfortable to ride but is also very responsive to pedaling input allowing you to accelerate and hold your speed during fast-paced training rides or races. Our Merlin Cordite SL frame has been built for us exclusively by Ridley and is a based on their excellent Helium ISP Frameset which has already proved itself in the most demanding pro cycling races in the world.
