Merida Scultura Disc 400 Juliet is an entry level performance road bike with women’s specific geometry and high end components. The Scultura Disc 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.
Disc brakes on road bikes are becoming increasingly popular road bikes due to the many benefits they offer over convention rim brakes. They provide increased power and feel regardless of the weather conditions, and also removes any stress and wear on the rims which means increased longevity of the wheels. The Scultura Disc 400 Juliet uses Shimano 105 hydraulic brakes for optimum stopping performance, and the frame features integrated cooling fins to reduce the chances of brake fade even on the longest descents.
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 riders 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. The addition of 25mm tyres also adds further comfort and traction without sacrificing performance.
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.
The Merida Scultura Disc 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 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.
