Built around the new 12-speed Ultegra groupset from Shimano, our SCULTURA ENDURANCE 9000 is the pinnacle of the range. Fantastic frame compliance, top-end components and comfort-orientated geometry make this bike a dream for long-distance riders.

The top model of our SCULTURA ENDURANCE line-up, for which only the latest equipment from Shimano, Reynolds and Continental is good enough. The lightweight carbon frame of the 9000 offers class-leading compliance, which, combined with the up to 35 mm wide tyres, provides ultimate riding comfort, even on the most extended outings. WIRE PORT cable integration technology keeps the cockpit clean and reduces air resistance around the front of the bike.

Launched in 2021, our comfort-orientated SCULTURA ENDURANCE was an instant hit with the international cycling press. Besides being given a 'comfort' award by RennRad, it also managed to get a long list of compliments like 'excellent comfort', ‘confidence inspiring', 'lively feel' and 'enjoyable' by reference cycling websites/magazines like Gran Fondo, Cyclingnews, Cyclingtips and Compared to its namesake, the SCULTURA, the ENDURANCE has a more comfort-orientated geometry, plenty of tyre clearance and seamless integration of the latest standards. Firmly established in the MERIDA road line-up, the SCULTURA ENDURANCE finds its place between the SCULTURA on one side and the SILEX on the other. Wide tyres offer plenty of comfort, even on the most pothole littered country lanes, while a longer head tube provides a more relaxed riding position. The SCULTURA ENDURANCE is the perfect choice for more leisure-focused cyclists who want to enjoy long hours in the saddle while being comfortable and relaxed on the bike!

The seat and chainstay profile and carbon lay-up schedule are adapted to work like a flat leaf spring, absorbing surface bumps and reducing vibrations.



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.



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.



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.



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%.



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.



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.



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.



A removable seat stay bridge can be fitted for neater and more secure fitting of rear fenders, but removed for increased mud clearance and a cleaner look. 



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.
