Eddy Merckx Sallanches 64 105 Disc Road Bike - 2017
The Eddy Merckx Sallanches 64 105 Disc is a lightweight carbon fibre road bike designed to be a versatile machine that can deliver in high-performance racing and longer endurance events, allowing you to go further and faster than you have done previously and helping you enjoy your road cycling more than ever before. In 1964, Eddy Merckx became the amateur world champion in Sallanches, France; this marked the start of his extraordinarily successful career as a cyclist with this bike taking its name from that victory.
The Sallanches 64 combines rider-friendly geometry - a slightly higher head tube and shorter top tube, with a cleverly constructed carbon frame which includes a more flexible flattened profile in the seatstays providing enhanced comfort when seated. These compliant elements contrast with a super-stiff bottom bracket and chainstay area ensuring that all of your energy and pedaling power transfers through to the rear wheel. The user-friendly technology doesn’t end with the frame though; the addition of predictable Shimano BR-RS505 hydraulic braking takes the Sallanches 64 to another level providing you with confidence inspiring control even on steep, wet and unpredictable descents.
The Eddy Merckx Sallanches 64 includes a rider-friendly Shimano 105 5800 groupset featuring a compact chainset combined with a wide ratio rear cassette providing a versatile range of gears that will help you conquer the steepest climbs you can find. The Sallanches 64 disc road bike features thru axles for increased stiffness, enhanced steering and no disc rotor rub as well as a pair of lightweight but durable Fulcrum Racing Sport disc specific wheels while a notably comfortable Prologo saddle and Deda components means your contact points remain comfortable even during a six-hour epic.
