How does a World Tour Team replica bike compare? MERIDA SCULTURA TEAM v SCULTURA 7000

The SCULTURA TEAM is a veritable dream bike, taking our top-end CF5 carbon fibre frame and fitting it with the top-level equipment chosen by Team Bahrain Victorious to deliver a lightweight and devastatingly fast race machine. With our new more aerodynamic and compliant SCULTURA V frame paired with a Vision carbon fibre wheelset, 12-speed wireless Shimano Dura-Ace drivetrain and power meter-equipped crankset, it's proven itself with numerous World Tour stage wins and other victories across the globe - but obviously this top-level performance comes at a price.

However, the SCULTURA 7000 offers up many of the headline features - a carbon MERIDA SL45 wheelset, SRAM Rival AXS wireless 12-speed transmission, complete with Quarq power-meter cranks - but at a much more affordable price. To explain just how this is possible and the in-depth differences between these two machines, we've compared them head-to-head. Just how different is a World Tour race-ready replica from a less exotic road bike build? Take a look at our YouTube video below to find out...
