The Fuse is our best ever execution of a carbon road bike that’s easy to live with and is a pleasure to ride. It’s very much a practical everyday machine as well as a looker.
The carbon layup on the Fuse has been chosen to offer high levels of comfort and vibration dampening. We know that a lot of UK roads aren’t exactly billiard table smooth and it’s real world riding that the Fuse is intended for.
The Fuse exhibits remarkable stability, balance and smoothness with a consistency that is all too rare with carbon bikes at this level. This is not to say that it can’t mix it with the best of them when the red mist descends and you want to go on the attack.
It’s a great handling bike that’s impressively taut under pedal power and responsive up front too. It’s sort of like a race bike that’s had its harsh pointiness removed.
We need to mention its appearance again. The Fuse is one fine-looking bike. The classy matt black finish is a delight to the eyes as well as the fingertips. The Fuse frame and fork are superbly finished and this level of quality really shows when set against our logo and graphic work.
To get the most out of this excellent frameset we committed early on to a fully Shimano 105 groupset. 105 is where Shimano’s trickle-down technology is at its best. Super slick 11 speed shifting and powerful, controllable braking.
We opted to go with legendary brand Mavic and their award winning Aksium wheelet. 4ZA supply the rest of the finishing kit for a dependable and consistent ride character.
Named as one of road.cc's Bikes Of The Year 2015/2016.
Aimed squarely at the sub-£1000 commuter-sportive rider, this bike is a real steal. Out on the roads, the carbon frameset gives a smooth and comfortable ride. Racers and more aggressive sportive riders might want something lighter, stiffer and more responsive, but the Merlin Fuse 105 should be on the shortlist of cyclists looking for top bang for their buck under £1,000. - road.cc
