They can call it cheating if they want to, but if you're riding further and having more fun than ever before, you'll be having the last laugh. Smooth, low drag assistance and natural speed.

Cheating? Not when you're having this much fun. The eSCULTURA 400 brings all the benefits of a pedal-assist motor to a serious road bike, offering up a way to keep up with the pack on the hills without a heavy, draggy feel when you're pedalling above the assistance limit. A 250 Wh battery sits inside the downtube, while the low-drag hub-drive motor works perfectly with Shimano's benchmark 105 groupset and hydraulic disc brakes to deliver a ride that's as sporty as a regular bike.

As even dedicated road riders realise the advantages a little ‘helping hand’ can offer, our eRoad range is spearheaded by this assisted version of our 'classic' SCULTURA. The eSCULTURA is for all the road riders out there who like an active riding style, but are looking for the extra boost to catch up with the bunch and to make the climbs that little bit easier. The MAHLE rear hub motor system gives our eSCULTURA an almost 'non-e-bike' silhouette while delivering natural and almost drag-free pedalling support. You can even use an externally mounted 208 Wh MAHLE Range Extender to boost range. While the eSCULTURA is a dedicated road bike, its comfortable yet sporty geometry and its ample tyre clearance give it real versatility and day-to-day usability.

PROLITE 66 TRIPLE BUTTED ALUMINUM

Our proven high-end aluminium (6066) is extremely light and durable. Using triple butted wall thicknesses and hydroforming technology, we can tune the aluminium tubes to give the best possible stiffness to weight ratio.

IMAGE

HFS - HYDRO FORMING SYSTEM

Tubes are inserted into negative moulds and a hot emulsion of water and oil is forced through at pressure, enabling them to be formed into complex shapes.

X-TAPER HEADTUBE

Our X-Tapered headtube offers the space for a tapered fork to be fitted. Tapered forks offer superb stiffness and precise and deliver confidence-inspiring steering.

SMOOTH WELDING

Sometimes called ‘double pass welding’, a second pass over the weld gives a clean organic look to the frame. At first glance, you will be convinced it is carbon.

INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

Cables are routed through the frame, entering and exiting through smooth sockets. The bike looks neat, whilst the cables are protected from moisture and dirt.

INTERNAL CABLE ROUTING

DOWN TUBE EXIT

Ensures that internally routed cables and wires can’t move freely and remain easily accessible for servicing.

F-MOUNT

‘F-Mount’ equipped bikes have integrated fittings for mud guards (some bikes require model specific mud guards), making fitting fast and simple.

K-MOUNT

Integrated mount on the chainstay to fit a MERIDA kickstand (or any commercial kickstand).

C-MOUNT

‘C-Mount’ equipped bikes have the fixing points for a rear rack already integrated (some bikes require model specific rear rack), making fitting fast, simple and reliable.

WIRE PORT

MERIDA designed headsets that allow all control cables to enter the frame through the headset, creating a clean and uncluttered look, without making structural changes to the frame. Depending on the model, the cables are run completely internally (including bar and stem) or semi-integrated where the cables enter the frame underneath the stem.
