Merlin Nitro SL Carbon Road Bike - 2018
The Merlin Nitro SL is our superlight race bike weighing a helium light 7.58kg and featuring oversized tube profiles manufactured from extremely HM carbon. Lightweight and super-stiff at the bottom bracket the Nitro is extremely responsive and is ready to accelerate when you jump out of the saddle to sprint.
 
With weight saving and a clean, fuss-free design at the front of our minds we included some versatile dual purpose internal cable routing using the same holes for mechanical and electronic shifting resulting in a very clean look. While the Nitro SL responds quickly to your pedaling input thanks to its lateral stiffness there is also a small amount of flex engineered into the seat stays to increase vertical compliance giving some welcome additional comfort on longer rides.
 
Key Features
The Merlin Nitro SL carbon frame features an intelligently engineered mix of 60 / 40 / 30 Ton High Modulus Carbon and a full carbon fork married up with a carefully selected groupset, wheelset and componentry. With a precise shifting, capable Shimano Ultegra 11 speed groupset and a pair of Fulcrum Racing Quattro wheels the Nitro is ready to race straight out of the box.
