SCULTURA ENDURANCE CUSTOM concept included in the ‘New Horizons’ tested in Gran Fondo

For their 17th issue, the team at Germany’s Gran Fondo magazine created a group test of a slightly different nature. Rather than looking at similar bikes from various suppliers, they gathered ‘the 15 best and most visionary road bikes of 2021’ in their ‘New Horizons’ test.

While including our slightly customised REACTO TEAM-E into their test (story here), they took the customisation theme a few steps further and created their own version of our test and award-winning SCULTURA ENDURANCE. While sticking to the key elements of our super comfortable SCULTURA ENDURANCE concept, the frame, fork and S-Flex seat post, most other components were specifically chosen.  

‘The excellent comfort of the MERIDA SCULTURA ENDURANCE CUSTOM makes it the right choice for all those who want to cruise mainly beyond the asphalt and head out on a bikepacking trip now and then.’

  • great off-road performance
  • mounting points for mudguards and luggage racks
  • versatile frameset allows a whole host of different builds

Check out this exciting test and find out why the various components made it onto their SCULTURA ENDURANCE CUSTOM build, in issue #017 in the Gran Fondo app. Alternatively, read the entire article here or the specific SCULTURA ENDURANCE CUSTOM online test here.
