This Merlin Cordite 105 5800 carbon road bike is an unused ex-display model that has been displayed in-store and is excellent condition.
 
The Merlin Cordite 105 is our versatile, lightweight carbon road bike which we’ve specifically engineered to be capable of handling long all-day epic rides, keeping you comfortable for longer. Our Merlin Cordite features a slightly higher front end than an all-out racing bike and not only puts you in a neutral position to help you stay fresher for longer but includes cleverly engineered seatstays that give a little bit of compliancy isolating you from road buzz and pot holes. 
 
We have combined these compliant features with a large downtube and bottom bracket junction as well as super-stiff square 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 meaning on a fast-paced group ride negotiating demanding roads with rolling hills you’ll be dictating the pace not following it.
 
Featuring:
 
The Merlin Cordite features Shimano’s excellent 105 5800 11-speed groupset which provides crisp, predictable gear shifting every time and superior braking thanks to dual pivot 105 BR-R7000 brake calipers giving a quicker linear response and increased braking power. A stiff 105 FC-5800 chainset with compact 50/34T ratio rearing lets you transfer all your pedaling power through to bike while lightweight Fulcrum Racing 3 wheels are fast-rolling and Continental GP 4000 tyres provide confidence-inspiring grip even in wet road surface conditions.
