Merlin ROC 105 Road Bike
The ROC is our best ever aluminium road bike. A very modern response to the demands of today’s road cyclists. You could call it a sportive machine but that would be limiting this bike’s capabilities. It’s a bike built for comfort certainly but it’s also light and responsive. It’s not a slogger.
A triple butted alloy frame with slender rear stays, an elegantly triangulated top tube and a tapered head tube up front. The ROC really is testament to the amazing yet affordable things that can be done with aluminium these days.
The ROC is almost like two different bikes in one package. Stay in the saddle and on the hoods and it will eat up the miles with great ease and efficiency. Get out of the saddle or on the drops and the bike fires up its racing genes and turbo boosts your progress.
To get the most out of this excellent frameset we commited 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 Fulcrum Sport for the wheelet. 4ZA supply the rest of the finishing kit for a dependable and consistent ride character.
