Merida Scultura Disc 5000 is an entry level carbon road bike with Shimano Utegra 11 speed groupset and disc brakes. It is ideal for the recreational or social rider looking to upgrade to carbon, or someone with a longer commute looking for something lightweight and efficient. Merida Scultura Disc 5000 utilises Merida’s CF2 frame, offering a great blend of performance and comfort.
The Longer head tube provides an upright riding position, ensuring it’s still comfortable for beginners and all day riding. The Scultura Disc 5000 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.
A full carbon fork is lighter, safer, and more comfortable than an alloy equivalent. Paired with a tapered steerer, they deliver deliver precise steering and handling. A Shimano Ultegra 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 Ultegra 11 speed offers the perfect balance of performance, weight, and longevity. Disc brakes offer significantly improved stopping power, as well as control over braking. They also perform much better in the wet, where rims brakes can have trouble gripping the wet surface of the wheel.
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.
