Merida Scultura 400 is an entry level performance road bike with women’s specific geometry and high end components. The Scultura 400 Juliet is best suited to female riders getting into road riding or triathlon, or recreational riders looking for an upgrade from an older bike. 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 400 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 carbon fibre fork improves comfort, reduces the overall weight of the bike making for easier climbing, it also adds stiffness for more responsive steering providing confidence when descending. A Shimano 105 groupset with a compact crankset provides accurate 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. Shimano 105 offers the perfect balance performance, price, and longevity.
Flex Stay technology dampens vibrations through the rear of the bike, improving overall comfort. A tapered head tube provides front end stiffness, delivering precise steering and handling. 25mm tyres come standard for improved traction and comfort, without sacrificing any performance.
The Merida Scultura 400 Juliet is a balance of performance and price, providing amateur female riders with a great value option to get into the sport, and more experienced riders with absolute reliability at an incredible price. 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.
