A double-butted aluminium frame with disc brakes and a carbon fork. A true go anywhere, do anything bike. Durable, versatile and fast, the Merlin CX 2.0 is likely to become your new favourite bike.
Designed in Britain. Built in Belgium.
The Merlin X2.0 is a lightweight and efficient all terrain blaster. It’s capable of tearing around cyclocross race courses with its rapid responsiveness. It’s exceptional at exploration too. Tarmac, gravel, grass, mud, hills, valleys… whatever. It’ll go there.
Its sloping compact geometry makes for a confidence inspiring bike handling experience. You’ll be nipping and tucking, bobbing and weaving with the best of them.
The carbon bladed fork has been specced to keep things from becoming harsh up front. Carbon is a great material for reducing buzz and tremor. The alloy steerer is 1-1/8th too, further helping prevent any undue discomfort or excessive stiffness.
There is plenty of tyre clearance in the frame and the fork. And with the use of disc brakes rather than mud-hugging cantilever brakes there’ll be no issues with mud-plastered tyres spinning around.
With full complement of mounts the bike is ready to sport mudguards and even a rear pannier – so if you fancy making it into a fun commuting bike, you can. No problem.
