Introducing the highly versatile Merlin ROC Disc road bike, available as a complete bike or frameset, an efficient all-rounder that takes the braking surface away from the rim of the wheel.
This type of versatile all-weather, mixed-terrain road bike has really caught on over the last few years for obvious reasons. With fatter tyres and enhanced clearance between tyre and frame you don’t have to stick to smooth tarmac roads; with a full complement of mounts the bike is ready to sport mudguards making it the perfect wet weather road bike.
Enhanced tyre clearance within the frame allows you to fit up to 30c width tyres with room for a full mudguard or a 35mm gravel tyre with no mudguard.
The Merlin ROC Disc features a triple-butted 6061 Aluminium frame with a comfortable, confident geometry that encourages all-day riding, a carbon fork that stops the ride feeling too harsh when you’re on the ruff-stuff and quality Shimano hydraulic disc brakes that deliver consistent, controllable braking in all weathers and riding conditions.
The ROC Disc Ultegra road bike features powerful Shimano Ultegra BR-B8070 hydraulic disc brakes that deliver consistent, controllable braking in all weathers & riding conditions.
The ROC Disc 105 road bike also features hydraulic disc brakes. Shimano RS505 brake callipers combined with Shimano RS505 hydraulic brake & mechanical gear levers provide confidence inspiring braking in all weather conditions on the most demanding terrain.
The fun, agile Merlin ROC Disc road bike is perfect for long winter training rides on the road, for your daily commute to work or for mixed-terrain adventures when you want to combine road sections with more challenging gravel tracks. The versatile ROC Disc bike will quickly prove itself as a rugged road bike that you’ll want to use all year round.
