Eddy Merckx 2015 Complete Bikes are here!

2015 Eddy Merckx EMX 525 Complete Bike @ $7000
Why this is the best balanced bike in the world.
The 525 is made entirely of carbon fibre and as were the other Eddy Merckx carbon frames it has been reinforced with Optimised Structural Reinforcement (OSR). The first thing that strikes you is the futuristic appearance of the frame: the tubes are not round but they are not square either. They make curves and angles that have rarely been seen in competitive cycling before. That extreme design also resulted in the Aerofork II – the fork at the front that is partly integrated into the frame – which is even more pronounced. The 525 has also been given a solid head for even more sturdiness and an asymmetrical rear for the ideal distribution of forces. The frame of the EMX-525 has been designed especially and exclusively for electronic gear shifts. With that decision, Eddy Merckx Cycles has made a resolute decision for the future and for optimal performance in terms of both changing gears and the frame. The aggressive back to the future look, extreme aerodynamics and the decisive choice for electronic shifting make the EMX-525 a full-blooded racing horse. A horse that can be seen on the tracks starting next season. The Top sport Flanders / Mercator Pro Cycling Team will be riding the new EMX-525 bike then.

The EMX-525 is named after the total number of victories Eddy had during the course of his race career. Both ultra stiff and light, it uses a combination of shape design and a unique carbon fiber mix that barely distorts or twists at all. It means that virtually all of a rider’s power is converted into rapid forward motion, and there is little or no wastage.

2015 Eddy Merckx SAN REMO 76 (Available in DI2) @ $4200 (DI2 $4600)
GO FOR IMPRESSIVE SPEED
As the name indicates, the SanRemo76 is meant as a tribute to Merckx’s unbroken record of 7 victories in la Primavera. This high-performance race bike is designed and built for racers who focus on speed. Its longer top tube and lower head tube ensure a leaning forward aerodynamic position. Combined with the compact seatstays and oversized BB this accommodates a more aggressive riding style.

The San Remo 76 is a fantastic bike that continues the passion and quality that so deserves. The 2015 version comes with full Shimano Ultegra groupset, which is utterly smooth, fast, precise and dependable, complimenting the innovation and futuristic feel of the carbon technology.

2015 Eddy Merckx MOURENX 69 (Available in DI2) @ $4200 (DI2 $4600)
GO FOR LONG ESCAPES
Mourenx69 refers to Merckx’s win in the 17th stage of the 1969 Tour de France. This 214.5 km epic ride from Luchon to Mourenx provided the inspiration for an exceptional endurance race bike. Its asymmetric chainstay ensures perfect balance while its downsized BB and longer seatstays provide maximum shock absorption. The bike also has a slightly higher head tube and shorter top tube enabling a more upright position, which is crucial for long distance races.

Mourenx 69 bikes are superbly constructed and tested, and for this reason they offer a lifetime warraty of the frame and forks. As well as this their range are UCI legal so you can take your beautiful new Mourrenx bike racing.

2015 Eddy Merckx EMX – 1 @ $2600
Why it’s time to discover carbon
The EMX-1 is the perfect race bike to discover carbon. If you have been riding high end aluminium frames or just fancy making the step up to carbon, step up to the EMX. Not just any old carbon, but some of the best in the business, Merckx cycles. The frameset is stiff and light with an ideal geometry for longer rides that is defined by comfort. It is the ideal way into the Merckx brand, their legendary innovation and race proven success. It is a bike for all seasons, all events including racing as it is UCI race weight legal, in keeping with other bikes in the range. The EMX-1 is well equipped with Shimano 105 for those on a budget yet lacks no of the riding performance or quality of the EMX-5 or the new bikes in the range, the San Remo 76 and Mourenx 69.

In-house sourcing and careful material selection are vital to deliver the best high-end race bikes. Eddy Merckx Cycles introduced CL+- and OSR-technologies derived from a deep understanding of different fibre properties and based upon very specific material selection. The Carbon Laminate + process developed by and for Eddy Merckx Cycles, assemble the carbon fibre sheets together in ways that maximize the strength and rigidity of the frame. Optimized performance, comfort and weight. The EMX-1 2015. A superb value for money bike that will keep your passion burning long through the winter and into the long summer days.

The aerodynamic of Corima Carbon
At Corima, they place a great deal of importance on the aerodynamic performance of their wheels. Over 20 years ago, they developed a high-performance composite disc wheel. In 1993, Chris Boardman used their equipment, frame and wheels to achieve the most symbolic of records in technological terms.

Since then, they have constantly innovated to maintain their lead, and this has made the Corima range of wheels the most sophisticated in the world for aerodynamics, which is so vital to the cyclist’s performance.

Their experts carry out computer simulations to constantly try and reduce drag. This research involves optimising friction pressure on the various surfaces of the wheel and tyre. They also work to improve the air flow speed and air flow separators on the wheel to obtain a wheel that requires as little power as possible to move forward and spin.

They have designed dozens of prototypes and repeatedly cross-referenced the precise results achieved by their various models on their test benches. When they then validate their best projects in the wind tunnel, they know that the hours of experience that they have accumulated and the use of the most sophisticated technologies make their wheels unique in the world.

The latest aerodynamic research carried out in their research centre has led to a new rim design that they call Concept 2D. This new shape improves air flow and increases the rigidity of the tubular rim.

roues-bois

Concept 2D
Concept 2D, which was first used on the 3 spoke carbon wheel, which is positioned as the best suited wheel to the triathlon and time trials, has now been transposed to the Disc, VIVA “S”, UP “S”, AERO+, WINIUM+ and MCC wheels.

concept_2D

The spoking of corima carbon wheels: 12 spokes on the cassette side and 8 on the left
All their spoked wheels are hand-built. The rear AERO+, WINIUM+, VIVA “S” and UP “S” wheels are built with 20 spokes whose positioning in the rim was very well studied.

The drive side (cassette side) is built with 12 spokes crossed 3 times, a setting that has proven over the years to provide the best transmission of power from the cy- clist to the driving wheel. The left side of the wheel is built with 8 spokes.

This arrangement allows for a more uni- form tension across all of the spokes. This makes the wheel faster providing excellent stiffness. It also improves the wheel’s ability to remain running “true” and in- creases the spokes durability. In addition, this specific spoke arrangement gives the rear wheel a very modern and technical look.

Carbon and aluminum hubs for carbon wheels
Corima has been designing its own hubs for more than 20 years. The hub is very important on a wheel and it must be designed in the same time of the composite part (rim) in order to optimize the product.

Developed by their design office, their aluminum hubs are made in France from the best alloys by precision engineering specialists using the most up-to-date machining equipment.

The “S” version in chromeplated aluminium benefits from the latest innovation with, for example, a 30-tooth free-wheel ratchet ring and a Ø 17 mm titanium/aluminium spindle.

The carbon model is made with an exclusive moulding technique combining strength and lightness with an exceptional finish. Corima hubs are also fitted with top of the range cartridge bearings.

Since 1992, the aero carbon wheel is world renown. This wheel allows you to benefit from all the Corima recent innovations on the rims, it offers the best value for money in its class.

It’s a versatile wheel that can be used for either flat or hilly roads.

The front aero carbon wheel is built with 18 CX-Ray spokes and the rear aero carbon wheel is built with 24 CX spokes. This reliable setting has been proven over the years. It’s the perfect wheel to start getting along with the performance of the Corima carbon wheels.

47mm Wheelset

Corima S 47mm : Design and performance @ $2200
The AERO “S” is the wheel for enthusiasts looking for speed and efficiency above all else.

Assembling the AERO (47 mm) rim with the “S” hub produces an ultra-high performance combination. This concept improves the factors that affect a wheel’s performance: Weight, stiffness, rotation inertia, aerodynamics, fluidity, power transmission and durability.

The front wheel is built with 18 spokes under our R2 system and the rear wheel with 20 (CX) spokes under the 12/8 system developed by CORIMA.

47mm S Wheelset

Corima S+ 47mm : New line of corima S+ carbon hubs @ $2600
Developed by their design office, the “S+” hubs combine strength and lightness with an exceptional finish. They benefit from the lastest innovations with, for example, a 30 tooth free-wheel ratchet ring and a diameter of 17mm titanium/aluminium spindle. The corima “S+” hubs are also fitted with top of the range cartridge bearings.

The cassette bodies of the “S+” hubs are even easier to use, the three pawls are held in place by a spring and the same sprocket wrench can be used for removing the bearings.

47mm S+ Wheelset

Corima MCC S+ 47mm : lightest wheels in their product range @ $3700(Tubular), $4000(Clincher)
Corima “S+” wheels are available in tubular and now also available in clincher vision!

They are built with the very light carbon “S+” hubs on which the corima logo in engraved. The wheels are made entirely of carbon from the rims to the hubs and spokes. The front wheel has 12 blade shaped spokes for better aerodynamics while the rear wheel has 12 conical shaped spokes for increased stiffness. Each wheel is supplied with a titanium skewer with a carbon lever displaying the corima logo.

At Corima, they place a great deal of importance on the aerodynamic performance of their wheels. Over 20 years ago, they developed a high-performance composite disc wheel. In 1993, Chris Boardman used their equipment, frame and wheels to achieve the most symbolic of records in technological terms.

Since then, they have constantly innovated to maintain their lead, and this has made the Corima range of wheels the most sophisticated in the world for aerodynamics, which is so vital to the cyclist’s performance.

Their experts carry out computer simulations to constantly try and reduce drag. This research involves optimising friction pressure on the various surfaces of the wheel and tyre. They also work to improve the air flow speed and air flow separators on the wheel to obtain a wheel that requires as little power as possible to move forward and spin.

They have designed dozens of prototypes and repeatedly cross-referenced the precise results achieved by their various models on their test benches. When they then validate their best projects in the wind tunnel, they know that the hours of experience that they have accumulated and the use of the most sophisticated technologies make their wheels unique in the world.

The latest aerodynamic research carried out in their research centre has led to a new rim design that they call Concept 2D. This new shape improves air flow and increases the rigidity of the tubular rim.

Concept 2D
Concept 2D, which was first used on the 3 spoke carbon wheel, which is positioned as the best suited wheel to the triathlon and time trials, has now been transposed to the Disc, VIVA “S”, UP “S”, AERO+, WINIUM+ and MCC wheels.

The spoking of corima carbon wheels: 12 spokes on the cassette side and 8 on the left
All their spoked wheels are hand-built. The rear AERO+, WINIUM+, VIVA “S” and UP “S” wheels are built with 20 spokes whose positioning in the rim was very well studied.

The drive side (cassette side) is built with 12 spokes crossed 3 times, a setting that has proven over the years to provide the best transmission of power from the cy- clist to the driving wheel. The left side of the wheel is built with 8 spokes.

This arrangement allows for a more uni- form tension across all of the spokes. This makes the wheel faster providing excellent stiffness. It also improves the wheel’s ability to remain running “true” and in- creases the spokes durability. In addition, this specific spoke arrangement gives the rear wheel a very modern and technical look.

This arrangement allows for a more uniform tension across all of the spokes. This makes the wheel faster providing excellent stiffness. It also improves the wheel’s ability to remain running “true” and increases the spokes durability. In addition, this specific spoke arrangement gives the rear wheel a very modern and technical look.

Carbon and aluminum hubs for carbon wheels
Corima has been designing its own hubs for more than 20 years. The hub is very important on a wheel and it must be designed in the same time of the composite part (rim) in order to optimize the product.

Developed by their design office, their aluminum hubs are made in France from the best alloys by precision engineering specialists using the most up-to-date machining equipment.

The “S” version in chromeplated aluminium benefits from the latest innovation with, for example, a 30-tooth free-wheel ratchet ring and a Ø 17 mm titanium/aluminium spindle.

The carbon model is made with an exclusive moulding technique combining strength and lightness with an exceptional finish. Corima hubs are also fitted with top of the range cartridge bearings.
