Merida Scultura Rim 4000 Road Bicycle

Experience the perfect blend of classic aesthetics and modern performance with the Merida Scultura Rim 4000 Road Bicycle. This bike offers the timeless appeal of rim brakes combined with a compliant and lightweight carbon frame, making it an ideal choice for long training rides and challenging club outings.

The Classic Look with Modern Features: While disc brakes have gained popularity in road cycling, we understand the allure of the classic rim brake design. The Scultura Rim 4000 provides the best of both worlds, offering the classic look and feel of rim brakes while benefiting from a more compliant and lightweight carbon frame. With a less aggressive geometry compared to our top-end Scultura range, this bike combines the smooth shifting and reliable 105 groupset from Shimano with a full carbon frame and tapered carbon fork.

Uncompromising Performance and Comfort: The Scultura Rim 4000 is a classic road bike that delivers exceptional performance and comfort. Its carbon frame ensures a responsive and lightweight ride, allowing for whippet-like acceleration and impressive climbing capabilities. The proven geometry strikes a balance between speed and comfort, making long hours in the saddle exhilarating and enjoyable.

Quality Components for an Enhanced Ride: Equipped with a Shimano 105 11-speed groupset and rim brakes, the Scultura Rim 4000 offers reliable and precise shifting, as well as dependable stopping power. The Merida Expert SL handlebar and Merida Expert CC stem provide optimal control and stability, enhancing your riding experience. The carbon seat post adds to the bike's comfort and vibration absorption, ensuring a smooth and enjoyable ride.

Designed for Every Rider: The Scultura Rim 4000 features a slightly more relaxed geometry compared to our CF5 and CF3 models, making it suitable for riders who prefer a more upright position or are new to the sport. Whether you're a seasoned rider or just starting out, this bike offers a versatile and comfortable riding experience that will keep you coming back for more.

Includes Under-Saddle Pouch and Multitool: For added convenience, the Scultura Rim 4000 comes with an under-saddle pouch that includes a Merida multitool. This ensures that you have the necessary tools at your disposal for any adjustments or repairs during your rides.

Technologies of Merida Scultura Rim 4000 Road Bicycle

Flex Stay: By using a specific tube shape and careful design of the seat- and chainstay of our hardtail bikes, we enable them to work like flat leaf springs, absorbing surface bumps and reducing vibrations. This makes the rear end more comfortable, can improve power delivery and has a positive impact on rider fatigue. In particular, on performance bikes that are ridden over long distances and uneven surfaces, this can have a great effect on the overall riding performance and enjoyment.

X-Taper HeadTube: Steering precision is vital to safe and confident handling, and the X-Taper Headtube allows us to significantly boost this precision. A larger headset diameter at the bottom paired with a smaller one at the top helps to deal with the strains modern riding and equipment can put on the headtube, all without adding unnecessary weight. It allows tapered forks to be fitted with ease and delivers precise and confidence-inspiring steering.

Internal Cable Routing: On the majority of our frames, we run the gear and brake cables and hoses through the frame. The cables enter and exit the frame through smooth sockets, or we use one of our other systems like Smart Entry or Wire Port to be routed through. Running the cables inside the frame protects them from the elements, gives a clean and neat look and can offer aerodynamic advantages.

DI2 Ready: Shimano's Di2 electronic shifting system offers fast, smooth and reliable shifting. In particular, in the road world, it has proven itself as the primary choice when top performance is at the top of the agenda. With that in mind, we have a broad selection of performance road frames that are Di2 Ready and can accommodate the electrical cable, battery and other little tweaks that the system requires.

Nano Matrix Carbon: Nano Matrix Carbon is a special kind of carbon fibre where we add extremely tiny, nano-scale particles to the resin that binds the individual carbon fibres together. These then work on a molecular level to protect them from damage. It’s so effective that it can actually increase the finished carbon fibre’s impact resistance by up to 40%, allowing us to build stronger and lighter composite frames that result in a faster and tougher bike.

AWS Anti Wrinkle System: This is a method we use to manufacture our carbon fibre frames. First, the carbon fibre that makes up the frame is laid around special formers. We then use a bladder to compress the layers against the outside of the frame mould, giving a smooth and wrinkle-free internal finish, removing any voids in between the layers of carbon that can cause potential weak points, resulting in a stronger, lighter frame.

Nasa Fastback Profile: This is a special kind of tube shape that helps reduce aerodynamic drag while also helping to reduce weight. It’s based around a teardrop profile that was originally developed in the aeronautical industry, but the rearmost portion of the profile is cut short. This reduces the amount of material needed to make the tube, but air still flows around it just as well, giving all the aerodynamic benefits but at a lower weight.
