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.

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.

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.

Carbon AERO+ MCC : The most innovative carbon wheelset
The full carbon wheelset (Including the spokes) “made by Corima” has a unique design* with the most innovative** technical specification. Both the front and the rear aero+mcc wheels are built with only 12 carbon spokes. The aero+mcc wheels will truly be the stars of your bike!

The most appropriate, high performance carbon fiber is used to provide the aero+mcc carbon wheel with excellent rotational inertia without sacrificing its strength. A brand new carbon fiber layering technique has allowed Corima to create the aero+mcc carbon wheels with the minimum number of spokes for improved aerodynamics and lateral stiffness that is far higher than any other competitor’s wheels.

The exceptional quality of these carbon spokes reduces the ground drift while riding and improves your performance. Riding Corima aero+mcc wheelset is pure pleasure! The pleasure of feeling light when climbing, of being faster than ever on flat roads and of being oh so responsive in the sprints!

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

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

  • 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”

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.”
