Merlin Cordite 105 Carbon Road Bike
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 2018 version of the Merlin Cordite featuring a slightly higher front end than an all-out racing bike 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.
The Merlin Cordite Ltd features Shimano’s excellent 105 R7000 11 speed groupset which provides crisp, predictable gear shifting every time and superior braking thanks to Shimano's dual pivot caliper upgrade. A stiff 105 FC-R7000 chainset lets you transfer all your pedaling power through to bike while a our own Merlin RA-1 wheels provides fast acceleration and safe, predictable bike handling.

Ade My steel road bike (purchased in 1995) desperately needed replacing and I chose the Cordlite 105 as a replacement. I'm hardly comparing like for like but the Cordlite is light, nimble and responsive. With 105 throughout, it's a nicely spec'd machine that is reassuringly reliable. From what I can tell it also provides much better value for money that comparable bikes on the market. Not only that ... it was delivered the very next day. Great service by Merlin and a great bit of kit (no I'm not a Merlin employee!). Thank you Merlin.
Mr Polat I received my bike in 2 days, it was packed well and all was fine. I liked the bike and it's easy to set up.
