Merlin CX-04 Shimano 105 R7000 Carbon Cross Bike
The Merlin CX-04 is our super-lightweight carbon gravel / cross bike that’s built ready to for all-terrain riding. With a carbon frame packed full of technical features the CX-04 has been designed to handle any of the trail in any conditions.
 
Key features of the Merlin CX-04 include enhanced mud-clearance in the rear of the frame thanks to its bridgeless seatstays and chainstays, this eliminates the potential for build-up of mud keeping your wheels rolling even in the heaviest of conditions while up front the full-carbon CX-04 fork offers similar levels of mud clearance. Front & rear thru-axles help to ensure that your wheels are always secure, brake rotors are perfectly aligned with the calipers every time and there is no annoying brake rub. The CX-04 thru axles also add stiffness between wheels hubs and frame with a noticeable increase in steering precision from the fork.
 
The Merlin CX-04 carbon frame and fork features internal cable routing throughout keeping the silhouette of the bike simple and clutter-free while protecting gear cables from getting fouled up with grit and grime. We’ve included a flattened top-tube profile that sits neatly on your shoulder when you’re carrying the bike and have specced the CX-04 with a threaded bottom bracket shell to allow you to quickly and conveniently change the bearings without the need for expensive press-fit bearing tools. Slim seatstays provide a little bit of extra compliance keeping you comfortable on rough surfaces and a large bottom bracket area creates a super-stiff pedaling platform, allowing you to transfer all your power to the rear wheel during those tough standing-start sprints from the line.
