Merlin Nitro Aero Carbon Road Frameset
The Merlin Nitro Aero carbon fibre road frameset has been developed to be aerodynamic, super-stiff and responsive making it the perfect choice for a competitive, performance-focused race bike. Each tube profile and frame junction has been specifically designed and constructed to cut through the air more efficiently encouraging you to attack the bunch and hold your speed in an aerodynamic tuck. The wind-cheating Nitro Aero frame and fork includes all the design-features you’d expect in a modern aero road bike including an aero profiled down tube, smooth integration from the fork crown into the frame head tube and down tube, an aero profiled seat tube and big boxy chainstays blending seamlessly into the large bottom bracket area for a super-stiff cockpit that enables you to transfer all of your power through the frame. Internal cable routing contributes to clean lines and an uncluttered silhouette while an aero seatpost specific to the Nitro Aero frameset fits seamlessly into the seatpost clamp.
The Merlin Nitro Aero doesn’t just hold its straight line speed well but also handles brilliantly on the open road and has been engineered to help you descend and corner in confidence. This agile frameset keeps you comfortable too, with a small amount of compliance built into the seatstays you’ll feel encouraged to stay in the saddle longer while your average speeds keep on improving. Whether you want to beat the competition at your weekly crit race, are looking to improve your bike split at that upcoming triathlon or just want to enjoy the ultimate aero road bike on the open road the Merlin Nitro Aero frameset is the perfect starting point for your dream build.
