Featuring the latest power meter equipped Rival groupset from SRAM, the SCULTURA 7000 sets new standards in 'streamlined race compliance'. Its improved wind cheating properties come from its aero bike relative, the REACTO, while its newfound compliance results from a multitude of frame updates, changes in the carbon layup, increased tyre clearance up to 30 mm wide tyres, S-FLEX carbon seat post and comfort optimised fork.

New for 2022, we are excited to present the 5th generation of our lightweight racer. While incorporating selected aero details from our test and award-winning REACTO aero bike, the new SCULTURA is the most aerodynamic ever. Yet, it remains true to its lightweight, agility and rider comfort focus; in fact it takes these factors to the next level. The new SCULTURA demonstrates outstanding compliance, providing the rider with class-leading riding comfort that will help to keep the body fresh for the final sprint or ascent. The new CF5 and CF3 carbon versions share their geometry with our REACTO, given the rider Team Bahrain Victorious race-proven handling. Available in carbon and aluminium and as either disc brake or rim brake option, our classic road bike combines outstanding comfort with whippet-like acceleration and class-leading climbing pedigree.

To reduce production and delivery times, we are sometimes forced to make last-minute specification changes. Please be aware that those changes might not be reflected on these product pages and images.

Technologies

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.

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.

IMAGE

DI2 READY

Bikes/frames with the symbol ‘Di2 Ready’ are prepared for the installation of Di2 technology with battery mounting in the seat post or within the fork steerer.

IMAGE

NANO MATRIX CARBON

To protect the integrity of carbon frames, the fibres are bonded together with an epoxy resin with added nano particles, increasing impact resistance by up to 40%.

IMAGE

AWS

When creating the individual carbon elements, an inflatable bladder is used to ensure there are no wrinkles inside the tube as these can add weight and create weakness. This results in a lighter, stiffer and stronger frame.

IMAGE

NACA FASTBACK PROFILE

The aerodynamics are based around a NACA0028 teardrop profile (National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics) which is truncated. Air moves around the tube as though the missing rear section of the teardrop were still there, saving weight by using less material.

IMAGE

DISC COOLER

A forged aluminium component under the front and/or rear caliper allowing heat to dissipate through CNC-milled cooling fins. Tests show that temperatures are reduced by around 35 % and cooling times are shortened, optimising the performance of the brake.

IMAGE

INTERNAL CLAMP

Designing WorldTour bikes is similar to Formula 1: apparently nondescript details can result in saving split seconds. Integrated seat-post clamping minimises turbulence at the top tube.

INTERNAL CLAMP
IMAGE

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.
