Merlin Cordite 105 R7000 Disc Carbon Road Bike 2019
2019 Merlin Cordite 105 R7000 Disc Bike
Our popular Cordite carbon road bike is back and is now available with disc brakes! Introducing the new Merlin Cordite Disc carbon road bike; we've taken all of the popular elements from the original Cordite and have re-engineered the frameset to be disc-brake-specific with thru-axles and flat mounts for hydraulic disc brakes to provide consistent, predictable braking in all weather conditions making the Cordite the most user-friendly carbon road bike in our range.
The Cordite Disc is versatile too and has been designed to perform excellently in sportives, all-day epic rides and even your local weekly crit race. This new disc brake version continues the same approach we took with the previous caliper brake version, mixing rider-friendly geometry with clever carbon fibre engineering to put you in a neutral position on the bike while isolating you from road buzz and rough road surfaces thanks to its cleverly engineered seatstays which include a little extra compliancy; clearance for up to 28mm road tyres means there's even more scope to make your ride as comfortable as possible. The Cordite Disc can be successfully raced too, with disc brake road bikes now approved at all levels of road racing this lightweight, responsive carbon road bike excels on hilly circuits when quick accelerations and predictable bike handling are called for.
Controlling your bike on long, technical descents even in wet road conditions is easy on the Cordite Disc, leaving you to focus on race tactics and positioning in the bunch. With a large downtube and bottom bracket junction as well as super-stiff square chain stays the cordite Disc frame is not only comfortable to ride but is also very responsive to pedaling input allowing you to hold your speed during fast-paced training rides or races. Front & rear thru-axles help to ensure that your wheels are always secure, brake rotors are perfectly aligned with the calipers every time and there is no annoying brake rub.
The Cordite thru axles also add stiffness between wheel, hub and frame with a noticeable increase in steering precision from the fork. The Merlin Cordite Disc carbon frame and fork features internal cable routing throughout keeping the silhouette of the bike simple and clutter-free while protecting gear cables from getting fouled up with grit and grime and a threaded bottom bracket shell allows you to quickly and conveniently change the bearings without the need for expensive press-fit bearing tools and eliminates the potential for unwanted noise that can sometimes be associated with press-fit bottom brackets.
Featuring: The Merlin Cordite disc features Shimano's excellent new 105 R7020 11-speed hydraulic disc brake groupset which features a new Shadow Technology rear derailleur that gives a lower, more aero profile and increased protection from crash damage as well as a great looking chainset evolved from the Ultegra R8000 version which is even stiffer and provides more power transfer than its predecessor.
Each gear selection is precise and predictable; the addition of safe, easily-modulated Shimano BR-7070 flat-mount hydraulic disc brakes will have you descending with new-found confidence regardless of the terrain or weather conditions. A choice of finishing components lets you customise the finer details of this great handling carbon road bike before our Merlin workshop technicians custom build your bike to your own spec. Choose your preferred wheelset, stem-length, handlebar profile, gear ratios of and more to tailor your dream disc brake carbon road bike specifically for you.
