Eddy Merckx EMX-525 Campaign!‏

eddy 525

The new print advertisement which shows the Emx-525 as ‘The Best Balanced Bike in the World’. As you all know by now, the stiffness and stability of the Emx-525 is way ahead of the competition.

This week Eddy Merkcx has launched the EMX-525 campaign.

Check out the first web commercial of the showpiece of the 2013 Eddy Merckx Cycles collection right below. R&D engineer Dave and test rider Jeroen went for a ride in beautiful SalzburgerLand (Austria) to enlighten the technical innovations of the new Emx-525. Don’t forget to check out the guest appearance of the cannibal himself at the end of the clip!

A Very Special Offer to Celebrate our 45th Anniversary

To celebrate our 45th year anniversary, we have a limited offer – 10 units of Eddy Merckx bikes where you can get them at the most valuable price – Eddy Merckx full carbon bike with Shimano ultegra groupset, and Fulcrum wheelset at less than $3k now! Make sure you don’t miss an awesome deal like this, and grab yours while stocks last!

2012 Eddy Merckx AMX-3 105 Complete Bike @ $1650
The A-series alloy frames have a higher strength to weight index than steel, but that is no reason to use it in excess. Eddy Merckx’s triple butted tubing allows them to reduce aluminum in places where it was unnecessary, and smooth welding means there are literally no joints to be seen.

Eddy Merckx Cycles have years of experience in the development of aluminium frames. The many victories won using aluminium Eddy Merckx bicycles during equipment-intensive competitions – such as the Paris-Roubaix and the Tour of Flanders – are the best evidence of their success in doing so. Their collection has no fewer than 3 different alloys, and its profile is both racy, and ergonomically optimal.

  • Stiffness To Weight: 90 Nm/°/kg
  • Frame: EMS 7000 series triple butted
  • Fork: Carbon fork – UDM, tapered 1 1/8” – 1 1/4”
  • Groupset: Shimano 105 compact
  • Stem: FSA OS-150
  • Handlebar: FSA omega compact
  • Seatpost: FSA SP-SL-270
  • Saddle: Prologo kappa STN
  • Wheelset: Fulcrum Racing 7
  • Tyres: Vittoria zaffiro pro
  • Size: 49 / 51
  • Colour: Black / White

2012 Eddy Merckx EFX-1 105 Complete Bike @ $2500
The superb handling is the most pronounced ride characteristic of the EFX-1. It is both comfortable and stiff, but its real strength is the feeling of confidence it inspires around corners and how true it seems to ride in a group. A full carbon fork softens the ride and keeps the whole package light, while retaining the racing inspired aero fork shaping. The EFX-1 also uses the increasingly popular tapering steertube, which goes from the standard 1 1/8″ up to 1 1/4″ to improve front end stiffness. The beefy carbon seatstay should provide plenty of riding comfort. Merckx stressed the comfort and rideability of both the EFX-1 and the EFX-3, thanks to features like this.

  • Stiffness To Weight: 105 Nm/°/kg
  • Frame: Carbon CL+ 240 – UDM
  • Fork: Carbon fork – UDM, tapered 1 1/8” – 1 1/4”
  • Groupset: Shimano 105 compact
  • Stem: FSA team issue
  • Handlebar: FSA wing compact
  • Seatpost: FSA team issue
  • Saddle: Prologo Kappa dea STN
  • Wheelset: Fulcrum Racing 7
  • Tyres: Vittoria zaffiro pro
  • Size: 40
  • Colour: Carbon/White

2012 Eddy Merckx EMX-1 Ultegra Complete Bike @ $2800
The superb handling is the most pronounced ride characteristic of the EMX-1. It is both comfortable and stiff, but its real strength is the feeling of confidence it inspires around corners and how true it seems to ride in a group. A full carbon fork softens the ride and keeps the whole package light, while retaining the racing inspired aero fork shaping.

  • Groupset: Shimano ultegra compact

  • Handlebar: FSA wing compact
  • Seatpost: FSA team issue
  • Saddle: Prologo kappa STN
  • Wheelset: Fulcrum Racing 5
  • Tyres: Vittoria rubino Pro
  • Size: 42, or 45
  • Colour: Black/Red, Black/White, or White/Red



2012 Eddy Merckx EMX-3 Ultegra Complete Bike @ $4400
Long-distance recreational riders haven’t been ignored either, with the slightly more upright EMX-3 gaining a tapered 1-1/8 to 1-1/4 in front end and all-new carbon fork, plus revised front triangle tube shapes will give it a slightly more relaxed geometry designed for comfort. Merckx is billing the EMX-3 as more of a “Gran Fondo” ride, with a little more give, and geometry designed for hours of comfort in the saddle. While shooting for comfort though, Merckx didn’t sacrifice performance. The EMX-3 keeps good power transfer by adding stiffness where needed, like the bottom bracket and front end. A good fit for riders looking for comfort and performance, the EMX-3 fits perfectly into the Merckx as their intermediate level carbon road bike.

  • Stiffness To Weight: 115 Nm/°/kg
  • Frame: Carbon CL+ 300 – 3K
  • Fork: Carbon fork – UDM, tapered 1 1/8” – 1 1/4”
  • Groupset: Shimano ultegra compact
  • Stem: FSA SL-K black
  • Handlebar: FSA wing pro compact
  • Seatpost: FSA SL-K black
  • Saddle: Prologo nago evo Ti
  • Wheelset: FFWD F4R full carbon clincher
  • Tyres: Vittoria rubino pro
  • Size: 42, or 45
  • Colour: Black/Orange, or White/Carbon

New EMX-525 gets Great Reviews

Eddy Merckx’s brand new, top of the line EMX-525 has gotten some first reviews. Road.cc states the bike doesn’t disappoint: “It’s clear it’s a very stiff and very, very fine handling frame and fork that will satisfy riders wanting a fast and responsive bike. Could it be the ultimate race bike? It’s certainly vying for that crown, make no mistake.”

The first impression of Road.cc is that of a very stiff bike that’s great to handle. “So it looks like it will be explosive and on the first climb of our test loop this is the right word to describe the ride sensation. It surges forward with real authority. Press hard on the pedals and the frame feels solid. Throw the bike through corners and the front end stiffness gives an incredibly accurate steering response, it’s precise and very very accurate.”

“I came away impressed”, Road.cc writes. “Merckx have clearly delivered on their quest to produce an outstandingly stiff bike. I came away from my short ride on the Merckx impressed. They’ve clearly raised the bar, it’s one of the best handling bikes I’ve ridden in some time.”

Cratoni C-Bolt Helmets Are Here!!!

The C-Bolt from Cratoni is a helmet that punches well above its price tag. Styling is quirky, with its little duck tail at the rear, but we became quite fond of it, and in the black colour option (white and red also available) it isn’t going to be a talking point on the club run.

Weight is a feathery 200g, and though you might worry that it could feel flimsy and ineffective, in reality this German design has the assured feeling that you get from slamming shut a heavy Mercedes car door. Solid, Safe, Secure.

The full in-mold construction extends under the rim, a feature we like as it defends the soft EPS underbelly of the helmet from day-to-day damage. The build quality is high and it feels like a real option to the likes of Giro, Bell and Specialized, right down to the layout of the retention device, the ‘anatomic fitting system’ dial.

The inner shape of the helmet will fit rounder heads best. The 21 vents sucked autumn air effectively and what sweat we generated was handled well by the removable Coolmax liner pads. The only niggle we had was with the Cratoni logo – stick-on letters which were hanging off the helmet right out of the box.

Quotes Tour-Magazine:

  • “With Cratoni the airstream flows extensively above the head; lots of sweat evaporates”
  • “Great features”
  • “Flexible handling”
  • “Best ventilation”
  • “Sophisticated
  • “First class finish”
