(68N/mm BB stiffness – 35% more than the 2010 EVO Team). 400mm length Chain stays provide precise handling. Bio fibre damping composite is used in strategic locations – provides amazing comfort, better wheel contact, faster cornering and descents. Complete bike weight close to 6kg!


  • Scultura SL Team is the world's best performing complete carbon road bike! (Tested by Neutral labs) In terms of low weight, stiffness and outstanding comfort figures.
  • High Modulus Carbon Monocoque constructed frame - 830gm (m/l). This level is using a high amount of the very best ultra high modulus fibres available. The complete bike weight is close to 6kg!
  • Full carbon fork with double chamber blades - 330gm. Contains bio-fibre damping compound - provides better contact with the ground surface that results in faster cornering and descents.
  • New BB386 EVO bottom bracket shell. (68 N/mm). Increases in the bottom bracket stiffness by 35%, offering more direct power transfer (compared to 2010 EVO Team). Assymetrical design chain stays also increase stiffness.
  • Internal cable routing - Di2 Compatible. Keeps dirt and grit out of the cable system and provides a neat, streamlined appearance. Compatible with electronic gear shifting.
  • Bio-fibre dampening. Provided in strategic locations for enhanced vibration dampening and increased comfort.
  • 40mm chain stays provide precice handling.
  • All new Scultura frames are UCI approved. Road frames need to be UCI approved for all licensed races
Nano Matrix Carbon
Carbon bikes are often subject to considerable strain. To increase the quality of the material used, MERIDA utilises this premium technology: The carbon mats are enriched with special nanoparticles which strengthen the matrix of the epoxy resin. In this way, the impact resistance of the final component construction can be successfully increased by up to 40%. “Nano Matrix Carbon” refines all of the MERIDA high-end bikes.

About Merida

At Merida we have a long and proud tradition of innovation;  creating ground breaking and world leading bikes, of developing new production techniques to constantly improve product performance at every level.

Our philosophy has always been to work with the best partners:-  two minds are better than one.  We have partnered with German universities to test products in extreme conditions, worked with suppliers with expertise in the automototive and sporting goods industries, all in the name of pushing our understanding further and innovating more.

The launch of the Lampre-Merida pro-tour team has pushed our R&D team even harder.  To compete at the very top level on the road, they have used all the years of learning to develop a range of bikes packed with innovation.

One example is mixing carbon with flax fibres in key areas of the bike to give class leading comfort statistics, so important for long hours in the saddle.
