Merida Scultura 100 Juliet is an entry level women’s road bike with fantastic spec compared to its competitors. The Scultura 100 Juliet is best suited to new female riders getting into road riding or triathlon, however due to the comfortable ergonomics this bike will also be suited to long distance commuters.
Sharing the same tube shapes and geometry as the carbon fibre bikes bearing the same name, the Scultura 100 Juliet has outstanding lateral stiffness through the bottom bracket. This provides sharp acceleration out of the saddle, and more efficient pedalling, turning more of your pedal stroke into speed over the road.
The women’s specific build includes a different stem, handlebars, and women’s specific saddle making the bike more suited to female physiology. The brakes are also adjustable to suit the rider’s preference, making for an easier reach to reduce hand fatigue and increase confidence.
A Shimano groupset with a compact crankset provides smooth shifting through the wide range of gears, this will help less experienced riders maintain an efficient cadence and pedal stroke through longer and more challenging rides or climbs.
With slightly wider than standard 25c from Maxxis, there will be confidence inspiring grip as well as a more comfortable ride.
The Merida Scultura 100 Juliet is a nice balance of performance and price, providing female riders with a great value option to get out riding . All Merida bikes come with a lifetime warranty. This means frames are guaranteed to be free from material or manufacturing defects for the entire ownership for the original owner.
