Cyclingweekly.com gives SCULTURA DISC 7000-E 9 out of 10 score

SCULTURA DISC 7000-E

The Cyclingweekly.com team took out SCULTURA DISC 7000-E out on test and gave it an almost perfect score, with an impressive 9 out of 10. The team appreciated the well thought-through details of the frame, pointed out the well-performing and reliable groupset, which was upgraded by the FSA Energy chainset, and the solid wheelset and tyre combination.

Here a few outtakes from this fantastic test:

  • 'It soaks the bumps and road chatter up sublimely and maintains speed exceptionally well.'
  • 'It’s like Merida has put a gumshield on a piranha and that’s not necessarily a bad thing for most of us.'
  • 'The 7000-E has been specced exceptionally well for a bike sold through IBDs and outdoes almost all of the other bikes at this price point barring a few, direct to consumer brands.'

Verdict:
'The CF2 framed 7000-E transforms Merida’s race bike into a much more versatile machine. One that’s just as happy cruising on the club run as it is on the race circuit. It has lost some of the whippet like handling traits of the lighter framed version, but the upshot is a big increase in ride comfort. And at this price point, few brands can compete with the Scultura on spec and value.'
