Just arrived at Merlin Cycles! Here’s a look at some of the top products that have caught our eye over the last couple of weeks, including some some hot new road bikes and some staff-favourites….
We’re pretty excited about our newest road bike – the Merlin Inferno. This carbon aero road bike features a cutting edge aerodynamic silhouette with kamm-tail shaped downtube to help cut through the air more efficiently. Suited to fast performance cycling and road racing this versatile bike includes a reversible seat post giving you the option of a more aggressive position making it ideal for time trials or triathlons too. Hydraulic disc brakes ensure braking remains predictable and consistent regardless of the weather and road conditions and Thru axles on the front and rear mean that wheel location is always accurate and secure.
When the dark nights begin to draw in and you’re serious about your riding, waiting until the weekend for a daylight pedal just won’t cut it. You need a reliable, powerful LED front light to show you the way. The Lezyne Multi Drive 1000 provides a super-bright 1,000 lumens and is compact and durable. Perfect for road or off-road riding, you can quickly set it up on your handlebars or helmet to suit your style of riding.
